I took the same picture from almost the same spot a couple of weeks ago and forgot to post it. I absolutely love the way the old buildings are reflected in that glass.

Re: Broadway

[The state applications were due around August 17th. The applicants won't know if they have a license until the end of December. It's a pretty risky gamble. So there is still a good chance the location here will be denied and something else will go in there instead. 2100 license applications were s...

Re: Streetcar to the riverfront

I say tear it down and build a real hotel/casino combo with a streetcar extension. Yes! The current building/boat has become such an eyesore both inside and out that I don't see how anything can fix it. They need to start over. This should have been the premiere casino in Kansas City, not the dumpi...

No idea what their names are, but the two folks who have been working both times I stopped in appear to be Chinese. The dude definitely takes your order in hanzi or something close enough I can't tell the difference.
Ok, it's not them. The previous couple was definitely south-central-Asian.

Re: Town Pavilion food court

I just noticed that place a couple of days ago as I was heading to an appointment across the street. It sounded good and I was starving and wanted to go in, but unfortunately I was there for a dentist appointment and couldn't eat for 2 hours afterward. I was always fond of the couple that ran it whe...

Re: medical marijuana

illinois legalized full recreational use and sale, including the metro east of st. louis. not sure how that will influence missouri, yet. Since anything opening in the east suburbs of St. Louis will be making most of their fortune off Missouri residents (I jest, of course, nobody will do that becau...

Kaldi closing per sign on the door. This is disappointing. A solid 7 day a week place for quality coffee and people watching.
Seriously? I had just finally visited them for the first time a few weeks ago and liked them enough to add them into my rotation.

Re: Westport

I was more comparing the Sarpinos in Westport with what I had out south at Sarpinos (OP or Leawood). The quality was better out South. I just assume it's harder to staff a place in the middle of the city that's open 'til 4a or whatever. They definitely fill a need - just not for me. It's definitely...

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

With all the work they did to get it spruced up for the WW1 centennial, I'm surprised it looks this bad already. Though I can honestly say that it's been a very long time since I have noticed any of the fountains actually running.

Anyone have any updates on this project? Last I had seen it still looked like a giant dirt pit.
There are apartments currently under construction, but that's the only thing I've noticed recently.
