Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

Their sister restaurant, Vildhast announced that its closing up shop at Parlor on April 27th. I'm thinking if you have to put out multiple calls for help, and then close up your food hall concept that saw foot traffic of hundreds per day, it's maybe time to rethink your business model.

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

Spoke with someone who chats with people at Cordish pretty frequently and apparently it’s in the works to bring Brioche into the old Mema’s spot.

Jolie has really been making a strong pro-transit position this week. Tonight she said every Kansas Cityian should be able to live car free.
This is why her candidacy remains a joke.

Re: Why Can't the West Bottoms Be Redeveloped....?

The renderings give me a little bit of the same vibe that I got from the Pearl District in San Antonio. Especially if they're also focusing on getting retailers and restaurants as a part of or adjacent to the Flats development.

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

An Indian restaurant might do well with the recent influx along Armour and Gilham stretches. The city core doesn't have very good Indian places, most of the good ones are in JoCo. Yes. There needs to be more Indian restaurants in the city's core. Or ANY Indian restaurants that are open after 5. Whe...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

I would be shocked if the lease extension deadline coincided with the end of the lease term. Landlords (for their own well-being) typically want an answer on extensions anywhere from 3 months to a year prior to the end of the term. I don't think I've ever encountered a "you have until the end of you...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

What I don't understand is how lease renewal negotiations went right up until the point that Brioche was **suddenly** forced to be out of the premises by midnight. How were they so blindsided that their current situation was such a surprise?

Re: Next Mayor 2019

That's kind of what I figured. Assuming the proposal passes, how much does a 50% cap handicap us as compared to other cities?

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Regarding the proposed cap on incentives, are there any other comparably-situated metros that have a 50% cap in place? Also, are there actually any data that support a move from 75% to 50%, or otherwise hint that the current cap is not sufficient?

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

Oh, and Hotel Karaoke looked pretty nice too. Definitely less sticky looking than Offkey but I'm sure that will change in pretty short order. Definitely looking forward to going there for way too many ill-fated, weekday, work happy hours.

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

Unrelated but adjacent to County Road, I tried out some food at Day 2 of staff training at the Guy Fieri place. The aggressively eclectic roadhouse vibe was a little bit weird but good lord those tacos were ridiculously good. The blood orange margarita was pretty solid too. The prices didn't seem to...

I love the new Local Pig/Pigwich spot. Great space. I'm assuming they butcher off-site?
I think I read that their production kitchen is in the basement. They have the pigs skinned and halved off-site, though.

I've plugged it before and I'll plug it again, a restaurant/brewery in the vein of Church Brew Works in Pittsburgh, PA would be so damn awesome.

It seems like the place is pretty decent before midnight, my wife has been there a couple times and has never had any issues. They will probably end up closing the club part down if these shootings keep happening The arcade portion was great and had fun. About 10-10:30 the place started changing th...

The initial pay-off may have occurred long ago, but don't forget about any financing they may have had to take out over the years for improvements, renovations, repairs, etc. Probably not an enormous balance, but depending on the church leadership over the years, there's no telling how effectively t...

Re: Three Light

From what I've heard, they're still looking toward 1st Quarter 2019 to begin construction. But who knows if that ends up getting further delayed--everything else has.
