Redonkian Spotlight: Amanda

Hi, I’m Amanda. I’m from Overland Park, Kansas and moved here for the jobs but stayed here for a guy (the guy!), the bigger city, the food, and the weather (although I admit I miss fall and the occasional snow storm).

Here’s a little bit more about me:

Favorite beer or wine?  Probably Tank 7 from Boulevard Brewing Company. “Champagne-y beers” are my fave.

Favorite vacation spot? Our family favorite is Rosemary Beach in Florida, we go every summer.

Best TV show of all time? We don’t really watch shows, but the TV is on quite a bit for sports.

Favorite movie? I’m not a big movie person, so instead, I will tell you my favorite book, which unfortunately is not a movie – Fall On Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald. Highly recommend, but not for the faint of heart.

I need a restaurant recommendation, where should I go? There are so many great places to eat around here I would respond with lots of follow up questions in order to point you in the right direction.

You’ve committed a serious crime like putting dirty dishes in the sink and are sentenced to death. What would your last meal be?  This is going to sound kind of lame, but I’d go to Chuy’s and order a New Mexican Martini, eat a meal’s worth of chips and salsa, and get something simple like a tostada and taco.

If you could have dinner with 3 people, living or dead, who would you dine with? Family is super important to me, and I never got a chance to meet three of my four grandparents. So I’d pick them (hopefully they’d all get along).

How do you drink your coffee? My husband and I are kind of coffee snobs, we have a number of different means to making coffee in our house but one thing that’s consistent is we drink it black using really good beans.

If you could do one thing other than work for Redonk, what would it be? Something in hospitality and event planning.

Favorite concert you’ve been to? I used to go to shows and concerts much more frequently pre-kiddos. One of my favorite show memories was when we saw Vampire Weekend at House of Blues and it was basically a giant dance party where I could sing along to every song and just cut loose. Ahh those were the days.
