I believe the street signs say it’s pay by plate. I’ll take a look.

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

Unfortunately (for my case) the CID workers swept it all up today. So it looks like nothing is wrong. But my upmost goal for bringing attention to this building (besides the fact of keeping it from killing someone) is to hopefully get the conversations going to get this corner reactivated and a new ...

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

Nothing happening yet- but I had to report to the city that the old Seidens Furs building at 935 broadway now has brick littering both sides of the sidewalk. So hopefully they'll send some inspectors out on this eyesore.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hampton Inn (16th & Main)

The ground floor facing Main actually looks pretty good. Nice materials, lots of transparency for the lobby and coffee shop. Eager for the March opening as this corner needs a jolt of activity. Passed by there yesterday via the streetcar and the SBUX shelves were full of merchandise... They were tr...

Re: Downtown Tanners closing?

I went last weekend and there was a rough crowd in the arcade late and on the 3rd floor in the 10 Spot night club, so hearing of the shooting on Saturday wasn't at all surprising. I live half a block down on Broadway and I can't count on my hands how many times I almost had to call the police after...

Re: To go up against Topgolf

I wonder if this will have an effect on the planned driving range at One North development? They've really gotten behind on building more, so I guess it's perfect to capitalize on that but I feel like this one won't be as popular.

You can now see where the stage was (with the curtains still hanging). They also thankfully added a mister today since it was insanely dusty yesterday.

Re: KC Bike share

They are live in time for First Friday! I truly had a great ride! Only gripe is how the seat adjustment doesn't hold very well so I had to pull over way too many times to raise and tighten the seat. Your first ride is free and if you top off with $25, you also get 2 additional rides for free (my 45 ...

Re: Downtown Tanners closing?

Are the arcade and Hush under-performing as much as Broadway Bistro was? The complex can definitely work if all the independent pieces are profitable. To be honest, i'm surprised the bistro piece lasted as long as it did. Even after the "rebrand" into more of a sports bar concept. The only time the...
