 gives events in Kansas City, MO...which is almost 700 miles away. Looking
 into the community-events-location meta_key, I see that the lat/lng stored
 is for KC, MO, which explains why it showing event for KC, MO.

 to distinguish between the two Kansas Citys, since they're so close to
 each other geographically.

 Sorry, "KC, MO" was just my abbreviation for "Kansas City, MO"...I should
