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".

Quotes & Highlights

“The Snow scene is one of the ballet’s high points, with its clusters of ballerina-snowflakes skimming about like pools of light. And in genuine Russian style, the folk dances that constitute the second act’s divertissements are sentimental, even nostalgic.” —Washington Post
