Re: Tom Colicchio-involved "Food Hall" to Mission Mall site?

If this is a unique highish-end food and wine venue that includes an entertainment element, I predict it will do very well. For the Mission Hills crowd, McGonigle's, Better Cheddar, and a few other places are spread out and on autopilot for decades. Plaza restaurants won't be hard to pull people awa...

Yelp is most certainly not full of hipsters.

Re: favorite under-the-radar mexican places in the kansas city area?

Not under the radar, but I think Port Fonda gets a bad rap sometimes. As far as a tequila/mezcal bar goes, it is easily the best in the city (that I know about). Yelpers and hipster haters love to slam it for being "hipster" or for tacos costing too much, but you can get a ridiculous entre...

Re: Six Light

Didn't someone try to plan a meetup at one point? I think someone got into a debate over if we should put our usernames on a nametag or real names and I decided the amount of alcohol I'd have to drink is unhealthy. This was like a decade ago though. Probably the closest to a recent meetup of anythi...

Re: favorite under-the-radar mexican places in the kansas city area?

If you want your food like 5 minutes after you order, Los Tules has perfected the quick meal due to its proximity to the Performing Arts Center, and it is reliably consistent. I've always been partial to Taqueria Mexico for no terrific reason (I generally go to the older location, but the Kansas loc...

Re: Bike Lanes

Best part about that photo is the street is so wide, people treated it as two lanes and passed each other dangerously. If nothing else, it will increase neighborhood safety because of that.

Re: Bike Lanes

These look great where they are placed, but they stop in the middle of W. Pennway closing in on the Aguirre Center (presumably to allow for parking). The annoying part about Beardsley (the continuation of W. Pennway through to the River Market, is that the bike lane is a glass and trash filled secti...

I have not been yet, but I just had a recommendation from a guy of Filipino background for Manila Bay Ihaw Ihaw across from the Home Depot. I'm not big on buffets, but I don't think you have to get food from the buffet. It is the only Filipino restaurant I know of in the city. I may try to get takeo...

Re: KC CityState

State fluidity would be a huge problem for the US. Majority political vote-getters and parties in any state could gerrymander state divisions to increase the senate representation for their party, which would be a race to segment the country unnaturally (which is essentially what is being proposed i...

Re: KC area Transit master plan LIGHT RAIL OR BUST!

I heard today that the Chamber of Commerce is looking at an "AI Superhighway" as part of their transit initiative. Anyone else here something about this? It sounds awesome but I don't know what it means. If you blockchain the data lakes and cryptomine the ELK stacks, you can use the cloud...

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...

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...
