Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I had two bird-based revelations yesterday:

1. Riding in the street at 5:00pm is not particularly fun;
2. If you're going to ride down Main at 5:00pm your best bet is to tailgate the streetcar so drivers don't think you're the hold up.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Segway tours seem to not illicit such anger.... Guess it's just the sheer number of scooters (and we haven't got started yet) I've never seen any segway tours other than maybe once on the shared usage path in Mill Creek Park. I didn't know it was still a thing. If I saw them ripping down the sidewa...

...and what's now the Crossroads was once considered "Midtown".
Also commonly was referenced as "Crosstown".....
Still looking forward to the freeway. So hard to get around this city! :lol:

Based on social media posts, it appears Betty Rae's may have had a soft opening last evening.
Soft opening Wednesday, so I'm told.
There is a sign on the door now that says "August 15 ish"

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

I've noticed this summer that the Memorial is using the east lawn as a parking lot. The grass has died and it was very dusty today. Sullied the view somewhat.

Re: Drury Plaza Hotel

The school district is the entity that appears to have control and power over the future use of this site. Are they exempt from city processes? No, the school district is not exempt, but what power does the city have, until or if, Drury or similar entity asks for favors? The city can not prevent th...

Re: Drury Plaza Hotel

12th Street is an important corridor to connect future "East Village" projects. A shitty pedestrian experience along 12th (i.e., no retail frontage) will make the development of the east portion of the loop even more difficult, imho.

Classic Plaza move.

I'm curious how a decision on a no bird zone gets made. Does KCMO make the call w/ Bird?

Had a comfortable and safe feeling ride over lunch today. Only one person told me to "get the fuck out of the road". And, strangely, it was a person headed the opposite direction. What're you gonna do.

I wouldn't mind a better version of Tivoli somewhere else. I'd love to see something more like Ragtag in Columbia.
Maybe the old movie theater at 39th and Woodland?
Oh? Compelling.
