Happy Hour at blanc burgers + bottles
blanc burgers + bottles is an upscale burger establishment.
blanc's focus is on gourmet burgers and, of course, all of the fixings to go with them.
If you’ve read my previous post from a few weeks ago on b:2 you know I just love blanc, and I was so excited when learned I had won a free happy hour for me and 9 of my friends from them on facebook. I thought “This is great that I get to share such a wonderful restaurant with all of my friends.” If you have a facebook and do not have them “liked” I suggest you do so. These guys are always doing cool stuff like that. I also mentioned all the yummy things on the menu that I still wanted to try like the Shatto cheese curds and the adult milkshakes.
The happy hour began with a couple of drinks and then we got a plate of sliders with their house made pickles and an assortment of all their fries. The Gouda cheese fries, the truffle fries, the regular fries and the sweet potato fries. All served up with the house made ketchup.
Well you know I couldn’t stop there because I had not yet fulfilled my blanc mission. I did get to check off the Gouda fries and I must say they are amazing. Imagine their already delicious fries and then add gouda cheese and bacon. Oh yeah!!! But I still needed the Shatto cheese curds and an adult milkshake.
Well I was not disappointed. The cheese curds were warm and crispy on the outside and gooey melted cheese on the inside, and the shake was the Key Lime Pie flavor, it was sprinkled with real graham cracker crumbs to give it an authentic Key Lime Pie taste. YUM!
What I love about blanc and why I was so excited to share it with my friends is everything there is local and fresh. blanc uses locally supplied beef, bread from the local Farm to Market Bread Company which bakes their buns fresh for them daily. They use Kansas City’s own Foo’s Frozen Custard and milk from Shatto Dairy for their shakes. Even the beer and soda are local with such brands as Boulevard and Soda Vie.
Well I have to give a big THANK YOU to the guys at blanc and say my friends were impressed. blanc…I believe you just acquired a few more customers.
I suggest you gather some friends and check out blanc for yourself. And you don’t have to win a happy hour to enjoy blanc’s offerings. blanc offers a great happy hour at the Plaza location, Monday – Friday 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. With all sorts of yummy deals like:

Enjoy $4 off any Boulevard Smoke Stack series beer and a Boulevard burger, an 8oz burger with Seeyoulater dopplebock onion marmalade, Boulevard pale ale mustard, sautéed mushrooms, smoked Gouda on a Farm to Market/ Boulevard unfiltered wheat bun. This special is also available at the Plaza location on Tuesdays as well. Sounds delicious to me!!
