Re: Crown Center: urban disaster, shining star, or in-between

And already a coworker is complaining about the development bringing too much traffic and wondering how hard it will be getting in/out of that parking garage. SMH. Although I'm retired from Hallmark, they brought me back for a couple of months to work on a project. I work in the RIC Center that fro...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Went to the soft opening at Republica last night. It's another Bread and Butter Concept place focusing on tapas. Hopefully it will do well. It's not going to be my place, a little too loud for me but I can seeing it being very popular. The price points seem good and the appetizers we had were tasty....

Re: Uber/Lyft ride-sharing in Kansas City

I'm so glad this happened. Last time I arrived in KC, the woman on the one phone you have to use to order a cab was extremely rude when I asked her to repeat the cab number. They can do that when they have a monopoly.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

This is a Plaza move out, Morton's grill is closed as of this morning. Too bad. It's a great location but huge corporations just can't do restaurants very well. It was so much better when McComicks & Schmicks were the owners before selling out to Landrys.

Re: Union Station

The American Ninja Warrior stage is being set up in the front parking lot of Union Station. It should be a lot of fun. If anyone is interested in tickets here is the link. I think it will be active from now until the 20th. At least that is how long Pershing will be closed. http://on-camera-audiences...

Re: 50s/Main development

When I toured the units at 51Main Monday, they strongly hinted that Justus was going to open Black Dirt there, they just really couldn't say anything yet. The units, although very nice were out of my price range. It's a great location to be sure.

Re: Uber/Lyft ride-sharing in Kansas City

Although I didn't tip in LA, one ride was from the new Fogo back to Venice beach where we were staying. The driver had mentioned how much he wanted to try Fogo de Chao so I gave him a couple of buy one/get one coupons. He seemed pretty happy with that, about a $100 value all together. But in the fut...

Re: Uber/Lyft ride-sharing in Kansas City

This is a cut and paste from Uber's website You don’t need cash when you ride with Uber. Once you arrive at your destination, your fare is automatically charged to your credit card on file — there’s no need to tip. I had thought when I signed up that it said the tip is included, but I don't see that...

Re: Uber/Lyft ride-sharing in Kansas City

The driver I had before him, though, was very knowledgeable and disregarded her GPS because she knew what events were going on downtown and what streets to avoid due to the likelihood of congestion. She got a nice fat tip. :) So, should you add a tip normally or just when someone has went above and...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Thanks, I just have the one TV on Fiber and the rest on TimeWarner. I'll have to run a cable back to the bedroom if I want a box at the other end. I have TW on the other TV's because it's included in our HOA and we have a channel dedicated to the front entry and i would not have that if I switch all...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I've had Google fiber with the TV package for some time now and over all pretty happy with it. My only complaint is that since I live in a concrete building the Wifi doesn't extend all the way to the back rooms as strong as I would like. They only made one drop and won’t add any others. And that dro...

2nd floor at the bottom of the escalators, where the book store used to be. Next to Chips Chocolate Factory. They have a great space, as does Shang's Tea and Jade shop.

Nancy and I also had lunch there today. I had the Charcuterie plate and Nancy had the half sandwich and soup. It was all really good. Phillip from Milano was the server/bartender. He said the food was prepared at the hotel kitchen and brought over. A very nice atmosphere and I can see having a drink...

Re: Crown Center: urban disaster, shining star, or in-betwee

I was really impressed by what they have done. It hit the target of a high end shopping area. Although the only thing I can probably afford will be a drink at the bar, I'm really glad Hallmark has invested 10 million in my neighborhood. Now if they can do something with Milano Crown Center will be e...

Re: downtown vs burbs

It just seemed like he had such a mindset that suburbs = safe and city= dangerous. As if living in the suburbs guaranteed that you would not suffer any crime. And that we in the city lived in fear. I feel completely safe in the city. I’m glad he asked a group of lawyers when he thought the city woul...
