Pink Saturday - Beautiful pink architecture

http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog

Had lunch with a few good friends today, I took some snapshots of the architecture of the Kansas City Plaza.  Most of the buildings are a beautiful light soft pink.  We ate at the Cheescake  Factory and I took a few shots of the ceiling and one of the columns.

Kansas City's Country Club Plaza


The Country Club Plaza (often referred to as The Plaza) is an upscale shopping district and residential neighborhood in Kansas City, Missouri, USA. It was the first shopping center in the world designed to accommodate shoppers arriving by automobile.  The shopping center comprises of 55 acres. The Kansas state line is one mile (1.6 km) to the west. Established in 1922 by J. C. Nichols and designed architecturally after Seville, Spain, the Plaza comprises high-end retail establishments, restaurants, and entertainment venues, as well as offices.

Kansas City Mo. is known as the City of Fountains and many are located on the Country Club Plaza.

Hope you have a super weekend.  Stay in the PINK.

Happy Pink Saturday Ann Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share this morning. I loved visiting along with you at the Cheesecake Factory. How gorgeous that place is.

55 acres is ALOT. I would so adore seeing all the fountains in your gorgeous city. Thank you for sharing a beautiful piece of it this morning. I so enjoyed my visit.

Oh and Ann sweetie, I LOVE your tin man. He is so gorgeous. I cute out a red heart of tin and JB Welded it to my tin man, so he will never lose it. Yours is so sweet. Thanks for sharing him.

Have a gorgeous Pink Saturday and a beautiful weekend. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

Happy Pink Saturday! I'm so glad you stopped by. I was working by "4's" on the pink links today and saw you - meant to stop by earlier ... great post. I'm quite sure I have been there. I was in Kansas on business and went "somewhere" about fountains ... surely it was this area! It was a neat area, that's for sure! Good to see you. Hugs and Love, Jenn

Hi Ann, It looks like the Country Club Plaza was the place to be. What fun and I love the CheeseCake Factory. You must have had a wonderful time, Char

Awwww, lots of pretty pinks, but I have to confess, like Francie, I focused on the the Cheesecake Factory - and for them, it' not the PINKS I love - it's there "to die for" and very decadent chocolate cheese cake. Yummmmmmmmmmmm ;)

When I moved to Missouri (and I'm from Oklahoma by the way) One of the first things I learned about was that KC has more fountains than any other city except Rome. It's been so hot lately I haven't been down to the plaza.
