"There area several reasons that this Modern Man Supply Co. pop-up event is shaping up to be a very special one. First, Julep KC was the host of the very first Modern Man Supply Co. pop-up event. As we all know, it is always nice to come home. Second, due to circumstances out of their control, Julep KC has been hit with some hardships over the past week. Plumbing issues within the building caused a literal flood within Julep. The flooding has not only forced the owners to make renovations, including removal of their wood flooring, but it has caused them to have to close the doors for business, over several days. Julep is a privately run small business. Events like this affect the ownership of a small business and the fantastic staff that work there." From 3 to 6pm.
