Re: Branson

The problem with a duck boat is that it has a canopy and rides low in the water. If it becomes submerged people struggle to get out because of the canopy even if wearing life jacket. Nothing unique to Missouri or this particular operator that I'm aware. My question is why they were on the water to b...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

With our narrow ass sidewalks and insistence on further eroding their useful walking space by planting trees, I don't see how having people blazing around them at running speed on powered wheeled vehicles could be anything other than a nuisance. I wouldn't feel safe riding one on the street with tr...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

What happened to the city plan to build a giant garage with street level retail between the market and Delaware? I believe it died. Hopefully--but what is dead can never truly die. Something like that anyway. Seems you're right. Right now, according to the city, there are no plans to add public gar...

Re: Downtown needs larger police presence

There was a cop hanging around the Union Station streetcar stop on July 4 in the morning. I gathered she'd gotten off the streetcar and was perhaps hanging on the platform waiting for the next one. That would be off-duty PD. Is this some sort of official streetcar thing? Last night I noticed that t...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

That's an awful move for KCSoda, less space so have to provide less product mix. Less exposure since you have to enter the City Market corridor (interior) to see it rather than the street location it is located. I love the counter idea, they could have vanilla ice cream and make all sorts of floats...

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

Is anything ever going to happen there? Its dragging down the whole neighborhood. Union Hill Founders is below 80% occupancy for the first time ever. The building on the SW corner of 30th & Gillham has only 4 occupied units out of 23 total. My guess?....there may be something else going on contribu...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Grabbed one after getting off bus this morning and motor wouldn't kick start, acted like breaks were on even though 'unlocked', I heard scooter click to unlock. I finished the ride right a way and gave it a one star rating, it asked why, and clicked the problem. So far it's still showing a charge (...
