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

Do we still have any pay kiosks in KC that require taking the receipt back to the car? The kiosks on Walnut are the only ones I've used and they are pay-by-plate.

Re: Hospital Hill activity

It's gotten tall enough that I can now see it from my office at 30th & Main. I wasn't expecting that.

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

The 2016 building collapse in Liberty didn't just take it out, it also impacted both buildings next door. [...] The business to the east luckily had empty space (they had three connected buildings) and just had to relocate to leave the adjacent space. But even that one was never able to fully recov...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Glad they had it too - because while their beer is good quality - you're either drinking a fruity/sour/champagne thing or a heavily hopped pale/IPA. For my personal taste, I'd like to see some of these new places actually craft a friggin' brown/amber ale that's not hopped to death - and maybe mix i...

Re: Parking

I don't see anything wrong with this. I'd rather people who aren't used to driving/parking downtown have an easy alternative than have them clogging up the streets, blocking crosswalks, and being a menace to both pedestrians and people who drive the correct direction on one-way streets. :)

Don't bother with Repeal on 18th in NKC.
Out of curiosity, what's wrong with Repeal? I haven't been in a while (and I'm not a cocktail person at all), but I've never heard anyone say anything bad about them.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

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

There definitely is (was?) something there. That annoying riding lawnmower hauling brats around used to drive around it. Read that as brats. As in bratwursts. For a second I thought I'd missing out all these years. Hah! I thought the same thing, had to go back to the previous page to get the context.

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

I only tried Cascone's once when I lived in the RM, and it wasn't as good as City Diner so I had no reason to ever go back. It doesn't sound to me like the streetcar or parking had anything to do with it, it's more an aging owner so set in his ways that he refused to adapt his menu (and hours) to me...

Great! Now make one more adjustment to that design by adding a connecting ramp to the HOA's bike/ped lane.

Yeah, especially when I watch it on full screen mode I remember why I had to quit playing first-person shooters years ago. (Too much motion sickness.)

Scooterj, do you have any additional photos before demolition of the Main Street Morgue building, and Nightmares , next door in that strip of buildings that included a formal attire store? It doesn't look like I have anything else. Everything I can find is from a high vantage point like in that lin...

Their times are always exaggerations. I would count on delays of 5-10 minutes.

True. I remember them talking about 75 minute delays for work around 470 & 40 late last summer and I don't think the actual delays even exceeded ~5 minutes.
