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

It was removed a couple years ago.

On a sidenote, I don't get all the hand-wringing about the layout on the east side of Walnut through there; I'd put just enough thought/effort there to make it look nice until 2026 (or whenever the Arabia museum leaves).

Re: beer.

City Barrel had their friends and family event last night. Friends of mine who went raved about the food as much of the beer; I wasn't aware that they would be running a full brewpub operation.

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

A study in contrasts: The world's slowest restaurant conversion is still sputtering along at 12th & Walnut - a fire alarm permit was applied for and granted on the 5th . Meanwhile...Scooters vacated 929 Walnut less than a month ago, and Spokes already has exterior signage applied to the windows and ...

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

The sign went up in mid-September.

Next month will be the 3-year mark on this project. If I was a bit more artfully inclined, I'd stage a performance of Waiting for Godot on the corner. :-)

Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom announced today for a December opening.
This is a wild guess, but I suspect it's not opening in the next three days.

Re: Westport

This prediction seems a lot more likely, given that a future location of the Johnny Kaw's empire is Char Bar's address . My long shot guess is that Char Bar will either temporarily or permanently move to McCoy's/Sailor Jack's space, using the currently parking lot as a lawn. This would let Char Bar ...

Of course not - I had assumed that my word choice for nearly every word after "gentrified" in that comment would have given away that I don't actually believe it is, but here we are.

Now I'm curious how many *other* parking lots have an assessed market value of <= $100.

Re: beer.

Something called Friction Beer just posted on Twitter that they signed a lease with Butch Rigby and will be in a "very popular part of town". They also thanked the Xroads Retail Group. So... maybe Tapcade? Not sure at all. Friction posted on FB today that they’re going in at the corner of 17th and ...

Re: Westport

I can't think of a better way for our newly-gentrified Kansas City Plasma & Crab District to market itself than Crazy Crab and Krab Kings leaving a bunch of discount/BOGO coupons at the KC CARES clinic. Crabs for crabs, everyone!

...I'll see myself out.

Re: Westport

Using this as the "close enough" thread, but for anyone who cares, Chubby's is closing Thursday morning.

The article doesn't have any information on what (if anything) is going into that space, but the Pitch managed to work in a throwaway "gentrification" comment anyway.

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

FWIW, asking for tips in counter-service places correlates very strongly with the adoption of tablet- or touchscreen kiosk-based devices with software that (presumably by default) includes a tip prompt.

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

It was 3x/week this season. I just checked Icelandair’s Web site; their summer 2019 flight schedule still shows as 3x/week there.

Source for the updated schedule?

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Is SEA going away forever? i thought that was just a seasonal flight I had flown Southwest to Seattle in late February 2017, so I think it had been year-round for at least the past couple years. Given that Alaska always had and Delta began directs on that route this year, Southwest reducing and/or ...
