KC cafeteria is horrible. Cafeteria with real restaurant $prices. Go over to Watergate and find pizza/salad place or hotel rest.for a bit more upscale. KC should be ashamed of itself for their "offerings".

Memphis was full of energy, great dancing and amazing voices.
The singing and dancing is almost non-stop, and the singing talent is incredible.
