Dining With Denise Neil

Sense of fun inflated at local restaurant kid nights

I took my daughter to Mooyah a few months ago for a burger, and we came home with a giant motorcycle, complete with wheels, handlebars and a blinking headlight, all made out of balloons.

That was the first time I’d seen the amazing work of Chris Conner, a local balloon artist whose creations are like intricate sculptures that kids, and parents, can’t believe they’re getting for free.

Conner’s talents are now on display weekly at local restaurants around Wichita — all of which make pretty delicious food for kids, too. We went to watch him in action on Monday night at Pacific Coast Pizza, and I made the above video.

This story about him will appear in Friday’s Go! section. Check his schedule and get your kids out for a night of Twisted fun soon.
