Re: Amenities missing from downtown

While I am definitely fond of the bookstore/coffee/booze shops that have opened downtown, I would still love to see a flagship (large?) bookstore open.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

How many car crashes typically involve injuries? (which is what they were talking about and I guess is what i should have asked in the beginning)

I wonder how many car accidents there were during that same period?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Doesn't this still have a two-tiered arrival/departure roadway? Meaning, if you don't want to walk across the 20 uncovered feet on the level shown in the rendering, you could simply cross the street on the lower level and take an escalator/elevator upstairs?

It should be torn down to become one mega block on top of a parking garage that has two entrances on grand.

Re: Drury Plaza Hotel

Does anyone else see the irony in this? School district owns an old, dilapidated building that is a financial liability and they want to sell it. The sale is only possible with the use of incentives that redirected taxes away from the school district. City (or whatever statutory agency) won't approv...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

According to a Business Journal article on endangered buildings the Christian Scientist church is to be torn down and replaced with a 13 story office tower. Would be a loss for the human scale along 47th and create a blocky wall on the north side. I wonder if they got this wrong and meant there is ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Traders on Grand

Driving past this building today I was wondering if they were done with the exterior, especially that eastern part. Does it look shabby to anyone else? Its a $70 million project.

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

Any hope they could keep the Steamer's name? That would be awesome. Or any name, as opposed to what seems like the very lame trend for most new MLS teams to be "FC (city name)". I think I am one of the very few that is bothered by this. I like cheesy, fun american sports branding with diverse names...

Kansas Side Breweries

Kansas passed a law earlier this year that made it easier to open microbreweries. It looks like there is a wave of breweries that are planning to open in response. From Joyce at the Star: ▪ Fields & Ivy Brewery, 706 E. 23rd St., Lawrence. March 2019. ▪ Limitless Brewing, Widmer Place, 9765 Widmer Ro...

Some internet commenter is probably already screaming about this being a deep state conspiracy to elect Jolie Justus empress of Kansas City.

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

I don't think you're really tipping in exchange for any kind of service. Unfortunately it's more like a donation to subsidize the sub-living wages of the American service industry. I associate "sub-living wages of the American service industry" with actual servers that are paid under $4/hour becaus...

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

Another quibble I have is related to tipping. This isn't just a Parlor thing, tipping for counter service has now become an industry wide thing. Why am I being prompted to tip for counter service? Worse at Parlor because suggested tips on the register start at 20% and go to 30%. What service am I re...

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

It's a unique product for downtown to have. If it fails, would think due to high prices rather than the food/vibe of place. Liked the outdoor deck most. .. Given there are 7 kitchens, would expect a rotation every 6 months but not whole place going under quickly. Could be wrong - there's a lot to c...
