I'm a fan of any trend that moves away from all-white cabinets/kitchens. People will be so mad they did that in 5 years.

Re: Westside happenings

This now makes more sense. My wife and I jogged past this "haunted house" so many times wondering what would happen to it. We saw the inside during the estate sale and assumed whoever bought it was a multi-millionaire given the cost required for minimum level renovation. It looks like a bi...

Re: Closed Bars and Restaurants

I miss the veggie burger at Chefburger. It was the only one I'd consider ordering, and I probably got it more than regular burgers there. As for PB, it has been rudderless for a while, surviving with zero marketing/promotion/modification to the menu as one of the only pizza joints of its kind in the...

From one of the most amazing, ambitious, and exciting plans on paper for the KC theme park, to this. The whole story would make a fascinating documentary.

Re: What other cities are doing about affordable housing

To me, the answer is somewhere in between. Completely freezing property taxes doesn't account for what would have happened to taxes in the neighborhood had it not been gentrified, and comparisons are very challenging to find (since comparable neighborhoods are likely in similar states of gentrificat...

Re: 50s/Main development

I have enjoyed it. But sure, there are better tacos many places. I was just there once, and at least one of my tacos tasted like they forgot to put the lid on the salt shaker. Another was so dried out, it was like they left it under a heat lamp for a few hours. I'm willing to give it another shot, ...

Mediocre is kind based on my only experience at the one in the Crossroads. How can you mess up tacos? Even bad ones should be decent, but not my experience.

Re: Rome,Tuscany and KC: Urban Experience

One tourist warning. The Chinese now have a middle class equal to the entire population of the US. And they all seemed to be in Italy. Engaged singly or as a family group they are lovely. But en masse, they are like an implacable tsunami. The Japanese had to invent a word for it. https://www.telegr...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

Attended the VIP event Saturday night and loved it. Decor is great, layout is spacious and they didn’t try and cram a table and chairs into every single spot. Plenty of room to move around. Food was excellent and all the drinks I tried were perfect. This place is going to do so well. Great news! A ...

Re: beer.

Of note, the delicious Boulevard Mexican-Style Lager that was in the tasting room for a while will be released for real and will be called "¡Vamos!" It is really surprisingly enjoyable for a simple beer. I can't wait for this one, and they are tying it to the Royals, which is a nice touch ...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

I wish them the best and hope they prove my skepticism wrong, but I worry that a concept of everything is often a concept of nothing. It sounds like the type of restaurant I used to think would be cool but now realize is incredibly difficult to pull off. On the educational side of the show "Ki...

Re: $30M MoDOT project to bring major improvements to congested Liberty interchange

Hahaha. Classic engineering for engineering's sake maneuver. It's like they came up with a hypothesis of how an interchange could work and got so excited about their idea, they just made it happen regardless of how ridiculous it is or how confusing it will be to drivers not familiar with it.

Re: KC to STL Hyperloop

That video kinda jumps to some conclusions and focuses more on describing how difficult some of the engineering will be rather than whether or not solutions can be designed to account for these things. Obviously, the pods won't be without oxygen, and there will be tons of emergency releases that can...
