Re: The Future of Crown Center

You don't _need_ HQs to fill up hotel rooms but helps. I kind of agree with this statment. Take a look at the Twin Cities. They have tons of huge powerful companies like 3M, General Mills, Cargill, Best Buy, Polaris, United Healthcare and they are all scatered in suburban areas all over the twin ci...

Re: Tom Colicchio-involved "Food Hall" to Mission Mall site?

How have we not hit some kind of restaurant bubble? There are so many new restaurants popping up, i'm having trouble keeping up. I am kind of cynical of these concepts popping up in the Suburbs because I just don't see the density to support them, these things work in Europe because people can walk ...

Re: Closed Bars and Restaurants

Don't think this was mentioned on here but all the Doughnut Lounges closed up last week. I was never really a fan of the place. I thought the Doughnuts really sucked and the place was kind of an identity crisis, was it trying to be a doughnut place or a restaurant or a bar? It did seem very odd that...

Re: The Future of Crown Center

There are of course different styles of travelers depending on trip. Some are adventurous who go for AirBNB, some are biz people who just want a practical place like Marriott flags, some want a boutique hotel. I may want any of those depending on type of trip, often wanting to be in walking distanc...

Re: The Future of Crown Center

I expect the hotel industry to chain in the next 10-20 years unless Airbnb just ends up dying. With the rise of Airbnb younger people and even business travelers want to be in walkable residential/cool neighborhoods. They don't care about large flagship hotels in the business district, and they cert...

Re: favorite under-the-radar mexican places in the kansas city area?

I am big fan of outdoor wood fired grill places you can find all over KCK, there is just something so unique about them, it feels like you are in another country. One of our go to spots for this type of food is La CARNICERIA Grocery Store, they cook a Carne Asada, Pollo and I believe some kind of Po...

Re: Is Kansas City becoming an inverted city.

How much of this is due to the growth of Cerner? Cerner mainly hires young people and the offices are located in a good proximity to downtown (all offices are within a 15-20 min drive of downtown). If Cerner is located in Gardner with offices spread in Grain Valley and Platte City I don't think u se...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Frontier starting a new route from KCI - Non stop service to Jacksonville Fl, looks like its seasonal twice a week. I think this is the first time KC will see non stop service to Jacksonville.

Re: MegaBus service offers $1 rides from St Louis to Chicago, KC added

I'm still kind of mad Megabus bolted KC and I really thought they mishandled the route operations here. St Louis now goes to Dallas with a stop in Memphis. I always thought KC should have had a route to Dallas with Stops in Lawrence, Wichita, OKC and Norman. KC also should have had stops to Omaha an...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Old Navy is definitely the pinnacle of luxury. Glad they are kicking out peasant stores like Burberry, Williams Sonoma, Eddie Bauer and bringing in Old Navy. Maybe Dollar Tree or Five Below can take over The North Face space. I would give Eddie Bauer 5 more years before all the stores close up, Wil...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

I know this isn't an Amazon 2nd HQ related but I wonder if KC ever put a bid on the Army Futures Command HQ? Its down to 15 finalists now but this could be a bigger HQ than the Amazon 2nd HQ http://www.startribune.com/twin-cities-in-running-for-coveted-military-headquarters/481875611/?om_rid=2645435...

Vice News Tonight on HBO has a piece on the KC MLK Blvd renaming with nice shots of the city. Sly James seems to very against this based on his interview. They also have a bonus extra about Troost Ave.

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Royals are just pathetic. I could see Yost just stepping down midway thru the season. Maybe they should try to trade Moustakas for a prospect. If the Royals drop there next 4 to the White Sox, the White Sox will have 7 wins in Kauffman since the start of the Regular Season. The White Sox home wi...

Re: Whole Foods mixed-use project @ 51/Oak

I love sprouts. I love the deals and coupons they do. We do most our shopping at Costco. I just never liked Whole Foods meat selection. All of it just seems pre packaged and shipped in from elsewhere. I don't think they have butchers in the stores but I could be wrong

Re: Whole Foods mixed-use project @ 51/Oak

I don't know if this will go over too good. Their prices are way too high. I have a feeling Whole Foods is going away from full service grocer and seem to be focusing more on grab and go items. It wasn't really the prices that bothered me its just coming up with meals with what they are selling. I ...
