Favorite store: “Rock Candy Boutique (1622 W. 39th St.) has the cutest vintage clothes. Their shoes are adorable and funky, and their jewelry is pretty. Plus, they carry retro bathing suits which actually cover something. It’s fun to just go there with friends and try all the unique stuff on.”

Movie theater : “One of my favorite things to do with friends is go to the Boulevard Drive-In theater. For $10 you get to see two movies, plus the concessions are a lot cheaper. It’s nice to just sit in the comfort of your own car and be able to talk during the movie without someone saying ‘shhh’ to you.”

Coffee shop : “Black Dog Coffeehouse in Lenexa (12815 W. 87th St. Parkway) is a nice hangout because a lot of people in their 20s go there. It’s quiet and small, which makes it a good place to study. But they also have live bands on the weekends and poetry nights.”

Restaurant : “I love Italian food, so I’m a huge fan of Cinzetti’s over on 91st and Metcalf. They have a huge buffet of everything from pastas … to freshly made crepes. Just a ton of variety. Even my friends who don’t like Italian food really like the place.”
