Re: We need a new airport!!!

Would expect that wherever Cerner's most common destinations are in Europe that's what we'll see. But otherwise if WoW Air is first, it might be a major tourist destination like London or Paris given they lean as a leisure/tourist airline. And WoW is apparently still considering KCI for 2019. If KC...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I guess I don’t see Frankfurt as any kind of plus. Like you said, it’s not a final destination so would be a stop over to the Middle East or Africa. Of course, you can get non-stops to those places from airports on the east coast. Just a matter of having your layover in Europe or the east coast. Pa...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

Excellent points about density. Perhaps this is where KC's vast annexations have maybe helped avoid a total urban meltdown by keeping taxpayers within the city limits albeit not within the urban core. On the downside, many of the folks in the hinterlands but still within KC city limits are at best d...

Re: New Downtown YMCA

Is a YMCA really considered a big "get" for downtown? Are they relevant anymore with the abundance of gym/healthclub offerings that exist? It seems a shame to be demolishing the back 2/3rds of this building along with the entire interior space. Once gone, we will never get this performing...

Re: BBQ WARS!

Another chain BBQ struggles and goes under in KC. How many extant bbq chain restaurants are there in KC (outside of KC chains)? Is there still a Famous Dave's out at the Legends? I guess there will be another Billy Simms in Gardner in 2018. http://www.kansascity.com/news/business/biz-columns-blogs/c...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

What would be the best European city for a nonstop? I'd prefer Frankfurt given the multitude of connections and the relatively user-friendly nature of the airport (albeit - you will walk). I think I've never deplaned on a A380 or 747 onto the tarmac to await busses but I have at Frankfurt. London w...

Hush sounds like a name for a speakeasy in a Stefon sketch on SNL. "KC's hottest club is "Hush," an intimate basement speakeasy that seats 4,000 people amidst the ruins of crying former businesses associates and over 6,000 conceptual drawings for various iterations of the Garment Hou...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Apparently one of the tax bill's floating around contains a provision that would eliminate the funding mechanism they are planning to use for the new terminal construction. Can anyone shed more light on this?!? Hopefully the senate will shoot down this version of the tax bill. Bonds are targeted be...

Re: Your favorite P&L restaurant, Summer 2017 [RIP Gordon Biersch] edition

Yeah, noticed that a few days ago. “County Road Ice House” is less lawsuit-inviting, I assume. Yea, turns out the one "county line" location in Texas wasn't ok with another restaurant using that name a few states away. Yep - figured that might be the case. I actually thought it was part o...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

ry bit of what they want from an airport. You are underestimating the size of the KC market. While the STL metro is larger, the market area is not that much larger. It might even be smaller. The CMSA of KC is 2.5 million and the CMSA of StL is 2.9 million. That's only 400k difference and Topeka is ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Great to hear that the new terminal is passing in a landslide. I felt that once the stumbling block of how these projects are funded was successfully sold and understood, the project would pass much more easily which it has. Albeit, I was still somewhat concerned. But it's also great that it was a w...

Sprint and KC get a bit of reprieve as TMobile/Sprint merger talks fall apart. I suspect it's only a matter of time before the next merger rumors pop up.

I'm running across several in Midtown to SKC intending to vote who don't think we need a new terminal, thinking current one is fine.
