Re: OFFICIAL - Crossroads Hotel (2107 Central)

Is lazia really going to be closed Monday to Wednesday or is this just as they start up? If they eventually plan to add more nights, very few will notice now that their first encounter with the restaurant shows Thurs. through Sun. Fortunately they are in a hotel, so maybe it's different than with a...

"Lock-to" dockless, so you'll have to lock them to something to check them back in.

Re: The Official Kansas City Weather Thread

So, 3 days of school closings for 5 inches of snow? I don't care what type of snow or ice mix there is. This was embarrassing for the city among so many other things they are doing an amazing job of.

How does a system that relies on painted lines operate in the winter?
Poorly.
Also, what kind of proximal investment does a painted line attract vs. a fixed rail when the lines can be repainted a few blocks away or erased very cheaply?

Also the reason HIllary lost to Trump wasn't because she was old and establishment, it was because she was Hillary Clinton.
That said, I think old and establishment would be a mistake vs. Trump in 2020. You have to get some of the middle grounders excited about a new direction.

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

I could also see the STL ownership wanting to be in the Eastern conference since STL has always considered itself part of the "East." From interactions I've had, there is an aversion to being considered anything in relation to the West other than the gateway to it. They will probably claim a bigger ...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Not trying to hijack the thread, but every time I see the beautiful interior of the Mainstreet theater I get depressed that hometown team AMC absolutely nailed the renovation, then sold it, and left downtown. And Alamo moved right in, changing hardly anything, with a lower-rent experience. That sai...

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

STL is such a soccer town, it's hard to believe they haven't gotten a team yet. I would like to be in same conference as a STL MLS team so we can have a natural geographic rival, but I'm guessing they'd be eastern conference. Tough competition for those last two spots - Detroit, San Diego, Phoenix ...

Can we at least take a minute before talking about the political ramifications of an, obviuously, very tough decision by Jason? This is an unprecedented (or very unusual) action for a huge front-runner to pull out of a campaign. I'm not going to even pretend I can understand the challenges of someo...

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

I admire what they are trying to do, and while it isn't "cheap," I didn't find the prices too insulting. Inflation still happens, and if fast food chains like Shake Shack are charging $10+/meal, I don't think these prices are crazy considering they are aiming for a way more unique experience and amb...

Re: American Royal BBQ

I went by one year on a Saturday to see it, they didn't ticket every entrance for some reason. It was absolutely dead. Not even parties going on. There was so much room to actually have something going on. One entire parking garage in the area was empty so it's not like they were short of parking. ...

It never really seemed like a KC Tradition to me.

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

I used to travel to Little Rock for work when there was still a direct flight. It was a Beechcraft 1900 (twin prop) that you had to board via stairs on the apron. It had no bathroom, about 20 seats, and was extremely loud (US Airways). Monday mornings were normally pretty full, but Thursday evenings...
