Tivoli sadly closing. Imagine another Johnny Kaw's will go in there, a movie theater version that only shows Marvel flicks.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

It's strange that Kansas City is inarguably in the best shape it's been in decades and people are like "eff these bums at City Hall". The Star editorial seemed to penalize anyone who had a meaningful role at City Hall in the last 4 years. I thought that was odd as well. They need clicks and so want...

FI has cancelled service to Halifax. We have to be high on the list of places to cut.
They just dropped a bunch of money on SKC.

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

I am gonna say that Rockafire closes by October. The place is usually dead on a Saturday and the overall atmosphere kind of sucks. Guess they closed in February. Why is that spot so bad? Nothing ever lasts in that building Rockafire was a poor experience. The ambience was nonexistent. A lot of the ...

11-1, passes. Loar was out of town, probably running away. I swear, I'm going to run against her one of these days.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Was in DC all week & saw scooters all over the place for the big 3 brands there. The biggest issue is teaching people the etiquette of riding these & bicycles on the streets & not the danged sidewalk. There were multiple times where my GF or I would be nearly bowled over by some tourist zooming arou...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

Don't forget the LA Stadium will be open by then. It can have a temporary capacity of up to 100k people. Got to think it will be the front-runner for the final. New LA Stadium was not a part of the bid & can't be added at this point unless they replaced the Rose Bowl with it. The final will be at t...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

This is the final list of teams, they have to submit the bid tomorrow. So if they get the WC, KC would get a game(s). Reminder that the World Cup will have 48 teams by then so easier to spread it out.

Re: Harley Davidson Plant Closing

It's not just "falling out of favor." It's always been kind of a luxury item and as a millennial, I'm lucky to be able to pay for car repairs. Most can't even fight for single unit homes.

Re: Sporting Kansas City

You're kind of undermining where SKC & MLS was in 2010, when the stadium finally broke ground. Seattle had just entered the league the season before, & no one knew if they'd be able to keep those high attendance numbers up. ATL wasn't even a thought, at that point, it looked like the most likely exp...

Re: KC's quirks and oddities (keep it light)

I'm more of a KansaCity guy, I just slur it together with the last s merging into the c, feels like a lot of my millennial friends are the same way. I'd say our way of doing the number before highway is the biggest quirk though. Also, the lady I'm seeing grew up in Waldo & says Wor-nell and I correc...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I talked with one of the many Northland seniors that populate my pharmacy this week that said he loves the current airport because he can literally "park my car right on the curb for my flight & it'll be there when I get back." I was amazed, I asked him what his most recent flight was. It was 1994. ...

They're all equally bad. I've used the payment machines in Boston, Minneapolis, Charlotte, Chicago, Houston, St. Louis. Not one wasn't slow or annoying in some manner. I have waited behind people figuring out the machines in multiple cities. I tend to buy all day or multi-day fare cards on purpose....

They paid all that money to get into the expansion team race with Vegas. I doubt they move just like that when they can rebuild the Nordiques from scratch.
