May I submit also that not only are all the rims of the glasses touching the same plate rinser, but also whatever is inside the glass be it beer, spittle, piss, etc. is also being rinsed down over the same plate. All day long and into the night.
Somebody ought to alert the new owners.

Re: Westport

Topic of conversation on KCUR right now. Had to cringe when one of the guests(a young person), bemoaned the tear down of the bank (beautiful old building) and the 50 spaces of parking (unofficial lot of westport) for a huge development. This was followed by a caller who spoke of buying in the Roanok...

Re: Heart of America Rapid Transit

1. No route beyond the urban core would score well for federal transit IMO (see the 2008 light rail plan). 2. Rail is very expensive to build and only getting more expensive -- local money spent on capital won't ever be available for operations. 3. If you add rail to one part of the region, others ...

Re: Heart of America Rapid Transit

Sorry, gents. There will be no rail -- light or heavy -- in your lifetime south of UMKC or north of NKC... especially not to the airport. The ridership, density, and federal support just isn't there. If you disagree, go sell the shit yourselves to elected officials once they get the price tag (or a...

Re: Heart of America Rapid Transit

What a terrible master plan. When will people understand that there is pretty much ZERO justification for any sort of fixed rail to KCI Airport, let alone heavy rail. Realize that rail doesn't NEED to have justification by itself. Rail to the airport is a great plan when you take away the need for ...

They're busy enough that we get the stink eye when we show up without a reservation.

KC has been completely blessed with the execution of the streetcar, so many horror stories from other cities.

Re: Light Rail Systems And Routes In Other Cities

We need Dave to give us a summary of his thoughts on The Hop. I'm mildly skeptical because its a couplet with a directional change (N/S to E/W) but I also don't really know the layout of Milwaukee. It just causes me to think of Cincy which has struggled. Yes, being semi-familiar with their downtown...
