Re: new vinyl?

as far as record stores, i dont have time to dig as much as i used to, but i'm pretty stoked to be going to love garden this weekend...still my favorite in the KC metro, probably always will be. no one comes close in terms of stock, turnover, fair prices, and good vibes! Have you been to Orange Cat...

Re: new vinyl?

I was recently at Dillard's. They're selling new vinyl and a bunch of shitty suitcase players. I suspect it's holiday hangover and you'll never see that again. Maybe I'm wrong. Dillard's! I continue to spend most of my time at Josey (selection) and thrift stores (prices/oddities). Interesting to no...

Re: new vinyl?

I enjoyed CityScene's article on Revolution and Josey Records this week.

and Promise Clutter (the manager at Revolution) has to be one of the cooler names I've heard.

Re: Westport

no. If you are a business interested in making money in Westport. If you have to stay open until 2:30 to make enough money, you’re not a very good businessperson and if you’re main clientele is wasted drunk guys and spurned gun toters wanting to shoot up the neighborhood, you’re no better than a ch...

I haven't eaten at one, but isn't Palm a nice addition to downtown's restaurant scene? Not something you see on every corner. Anyone here with a first-hand review? competition for 801 chophouse but with a national following. Also if you spend a ton of money you get your caricature on the wall with ...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

I like the Paseo name, but it still has zero KC-specific heritage. Meyer has a street. Kessler has a street. No reason their boondoggle to Mexico has to be memorialized forever with a stolen street name. Because MLK came to KC when? 1968 (At least to KCK) Martin Luther King Jr. stopped by Kansas in...

Barney Allis Plaza should not be developed. It should be redeveloped as a public open space IMO.
now this I agree with if covered with grass and lowered to street level

I have to say, I was disappointed when I heard it was going to be held at the Rockhill.

That place is just off-putting. Like a little bit of the plaza in the crossroads.
I hadn't really thought of why it feels wrong before, but you exactly nail the problem with the Rockhill

Re: Be a Walkable Activist too

Good article, hopefully change is coming. Also I saw the new bike parking in downtown OPKS - KC needs to do 100's of these between downtown and Waldo. The green color is perfect and they look like art even when no bike is parked. http://bikewalkkc.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/DSC_2061.jpg http://b...
