Spread The Word!

Introducing “The Martin Talks”
KSquared Conversation with Kansas City

Martin City’s NEW 3rd Thursday program!

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

The 3rd Thursday “K-Squared” program continues on Thursday, November 17th at The Martin event space on the corner of 135th Street and Holmes Road in Martin City. This month’s event is hosted by Kansas City’s award-winning writers, editors, and  media personalities, Katie Van Luchene and Kimberly Winter Stern, with special guests, author Judith Fertig and Tippin’s Pies President, Mark Boyer.

Here’s what’s happening in November:

Judit Fertig: Fertig has written cookbooks including the iconic Prairie Home Cooking and Heartland: The Cookbook. Her food and lifestyle writing has also appeared in national publications including The New York Times and Food & Wine and locally in Spaces Kansas City and The Kansas City Star. Fertig recently penned two fiction novels, The Memory of Lemon and The Cake Therapist. She will sign her books before the event and will give away several copies.

Mark Boyer: Boyer is the president of Tippin’s Pies, the company behind Kansas City’s iconic handcrafted pies. He will give away 10 pie certificates, including seven for those who bring the most guests to The Martin Talks.

In addition, there will be a chance to get a head start on holiday gift shopping. Representatives from Ozanam, a part of Cornerstone organizations providing services to at-risk youth, will sell $15 gift certificates for Tippin’s pies. The certificates are part of “Pies for a Purpose.” Each certificate is redeemable for any flavor Tippin’s at metro-area Price Choppers through Jan. 15, 2017, and $6 of every pie purchased will benefit the children and families served by the Cornerstones family.

Attendees also have a chance to win door prizes! Join us for a free signature cocktail & appetizers!

The goal of “3rd Thursday” in Martin City is to support our local Martin City businesses by making a point to shop and dine in the CID district on the third Thursday of each month.  Of course, you are welcome to shop, dine and play in Martin City ANY DAY of the week but we try to do something special each month on 3rd Thursday to make it a little more fun!

Many of our businesses have 3rd Thursday specials, events, and other offerings during this time, and a monthly 3rd Thursday theme typically offers speakers or entertainment of some sort, drinks, food samples, and other giveaways.

3rd Thursday in Martin City is hosted monthly from April – October and ends in November with a holiday lighting. More information is posted on this page as event dates approach. In the meantime, mark your calendars from 4-9pm on the 3rd Thursday of each month so you can spend the evening with us in Martin City!
