More like Obscenity Garden. What a tragic loss.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I saw one being put to the test at the Harrison St. DIY skate park yesterday. Wonder what kind of effect that has on their longevity.

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

Give Darlene a break. She probably just misspoke, er, mistyped, and meant to say "wouldn't." Happens all the time, even to the best of us.

Re: OFFICIAL - 21c Museum Hotel KC (former Savoy Hotel)

I had dinner there last night, sat at the bar. Everything was exceptional and the bill was reasonable. Service was excellent. I love this place.
Highlights: the avocado crab Louis, burger, pasta a la primavera
Cocktail highlights: Manhattan and old fashioned

Nobody is building condos. But they will all become condos when the money flies like it did a decade ago. If it ever does.

Re: East Bottoms: Former Ramada Conference / Howard Johnsons / Park Place

Maybe not, but the medians are a mess with trash and standing water. I suspect it's not all run-off.
Sewage treatment plants don't have to smell that bad, if they are maintained and managed properly.

That one makes me nervous. I better at least take a hot date when I visit.
Odd that the menu is written in first person. Wonder what will happen when he gets fired or quits.

Re: Genessee Royale Bistro

There was no demise of Happy Gillis, they just sold it. But I agree it is a bummer, especially with so much happening in that vicinity – new apartments across the street, Kemper Arena re-use, Golden Ox. I will miss them.

Re: East Bottoms: Former Ramada Conference / Howard Johnsons / Park Place

That whole area smells like raw sewage. I don't know what they are doing in the medians, but I imagine the standing water is not healthy.

Re: Bike Lanes

There is a misguided movement in this town to stick bike lanes everywhere. Unless they are protected, they are meaningless and anyone with sense would take a side street, when possible. Paseo, in most places, is a very dangerous road for bikes. And there are usually quiet adjacent side streets avail...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

If we go with the center lane option, I would really like them to consider the design of the rails to be different than downtown that has the solid concrete slab between the rails. Design it so you layer of asphalt between the rails above the concrete substructure that can be easily pulled out so t...

Re: Historic Old Northeast

There's actually an easy way to compare urban to suburban. Zoom out in google maps satellite view. if a neighborhood is mostly green then the buildings aren't tall enough to go over trees and they can easily overlap a house's roof. It may be denser but it's all homes and that's a suburb flyingsuburb!

When Dave cuts off your legs, you will no longer be able to walk as fast as the streetcar.
