Networking Pickup with KC Crew

Wednesday, April 24 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm • Organized By KC Chamber of Commerce
1800 Genessee St., Kansas City, MO 64102


Are you looking to network in a fun, healthy way? Well lucky you! We are partnering with KC Crew and Longboards to offer Lunch Networking Pickups at the all-new Hy-Vee Arena (old Kemper). We will play short games and after each game you will be placed with new teammates so you will meet new people every time. 

"What if I get all sweaty?" you ask? Hy-Vee Arena has locker rooms on the first floor with showers available just BYOT (Bring Your Own Towel). If you don't know how to play any of the sports we will place you in a specified group so you're playing with people of your calibar. 

Choose between basketball, pickleball or volleyball. Order lunch if you want and it will be ready when you're done playing! 


*You will not pay at the front entrance of Hy-Vee Arena. This is thru KC Crew so you will check in at the front desk and say you will be playing with KC Crew.
**All food orders must be placed by Sunday, February 24.

Lunch options:
  • Cabo Chicken (Hot Wrap - Guac, pepper jack cheese, pico de gallo, chicken, rice, and chipotle ranch on a grilled chipotle wrap)
  • Thai Chicken (Hot Wrap - Pepper jack cheese, green & red peppers, celery, carrots, chicken, rice and peanut sauce on a grilled chipotle wrap)
  • A Bomb (Cool Wrap - Mozzarella, pico de gallo, hard boiled egg, lettuce, turkey, bacon, and ranch on a spinach wrap)
  • All come with a choice of side: Garlic potato salad, fresh pasta salad, hummus with pita bread or Maui onion chips
