Re: Traders on Grand

The Traders exterior upgrade is really looking from the southwest.
The exterior is going to make the building look practically new with the dark windows.

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

The name "County Line" is a nod to Joe's Kansas City's roots in Kansas City, Kan., where its first area location sits along Mission Road and County Line Road. Maybe someone should remind Dumbf__ Dorothy that he's not in kansas anymore. His bbq slathered-in-cheese sammich should be a big h...

Ya know, I have to say this guy may be a good businessman and know the BBQ restaurant biz. But that dumb son-of-a-bitch is the most clueless moron ever shat out of an ass when it comes to naming his shit. I mean, we're talking Kansas City BBQ, which has a great urban culture and tradition going back...

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

It's like arguing your favorite color is better than someone else's favorite color. That's a stupid analogy. Everyone agrees that "some BBQ is actually better than other BBQ" because there is a mass consensus of best places in KC. Example: Everyone knows that Rosedale BBQ sucks ass, but i...

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

While I like Q39 much more than Joe's KC (only kansans would put cheese on BBQ). That is crazy talk. I'm fine with claims that Joe's is overrated, but barely above average? That argument only flies if you are only considering KC BBQ joints (not nationally), and even then it is well into the above-a...

Re: KC's quirks and oddities (keep it light)

This midwest pork steak thing is a German immigrant phenomenon I think. KC doesn't have the "tradition" with "pork steak and Mauls" like STL does, but growing up we ate pork steak quite a bit. KC was mostly a German and Irish immigrant city. My German father loved pork steak. We ...

It would be a plus for downtown to have such a famously hyped (but barely above average) BBQ joint.
But Food TV and other media will still focus on the hick gas station location for the kitsch.

Re: Midtown Apartments

Midtown is Brush Creek to 31st, Troost to the state line No. Wrong. False. Brush Creek has nothing at all to do with "Midtown." Midtown historically has always been 31st St to 39th St. State Line to Troost. Since KC came of age and developed it's urban boundaries in the 40's-50's, Midtown...

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

Yes, we've heard it all before a million times. Sure, do all you can to try to get the developer to change things to your liking. But the incessant whining on here won't get anything accomplished. That project is not as bad as you make it out to be, there are no "surface lots" or "bla...

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

.... Don't know why we're comparing the pedestrian level of anywhere in San Diego to KC for any reason though. But regardless... The RM West I and II both suck - especially II. Lets just say its a project that belongs in Olathe (not San Diego). That's really the point here - not anything about a ci...

I lived in San Diego and I couldn't disagree more.

Re: BBQ WARS!

Went to Jack Stack (downtown) last night for the first time in 5 months. Bar wasn't packed, but it took the bartender 6 minutes to recognize me. I truly despise bartenders that chit chat and refuse to be aware of new patrons sitting down. Menu has changed, much less to offer now. Prices have increas...

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

Don't like it? Build your own.
Growing, thriving cities like San Diego have replaced many surface lots and old, obsolete single-family houses in their core with buildings and designs similar to this.

It's very "Ambassadorial."
I like it, it's a nice modern juxtapose to the old building.
