Re: Misc Crossroads News

Michael Corvino is previewing the fried chicken sandwich that will be served at Ravenous at Torn Label tonight. Verdict: delicious.

Can’t wait for it to open.

Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

If anyone here has any real-life connections to the principals at Worcester, they *really* need to know that their company is comically inept at communication (or worse, knows it and doesn't care). At the rate they're going, 909 will be a high-rise, modestly nicer version of SouthRidge Apartments in...

Re: Generic ongoing KCATA thread

If I wanted to "formally" propose an adjustment to an existing route, is there an person, email address, form, etc. that should be used for such things, or does posting it here suffice?

Re: Property Tax Assessments 2019

I don't have the motivation to wade back through the previous posts to see if it's been mentioned, but any sort of information (property class, approximate year built, square footage, large-scale neighborhood it's in, etc.) about the property Steve52 keeps referring to would go a long way in providi...

Re: Generic ongoing KCATA thread

Is real-time tracking broken? I’ve been listening to a friend say that it’s vanished from Google Maps in the past few days and a spot-check of other apps indicates that it’s patchy at best at the moment.

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

C'mon Starbucks, the world needs more instances of this Lewis Black bit.

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

Secondary European airports usually* have glass jetways. As those airports are effectively the definition of value engineering, I don't imagine they're more expensive than the metal ones we typically see here.

I know you'll spit out a spambot-quality list of all sports broadcasters and streaming services currently extant or rumored to exist in this country in the next comment, but the correct answer is "nowhere, until their rights come up after this season"; Sinclair's purchase of the Fox RSNs makes it mo...

Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

Per the “meet the new office staff” happy hour last month (which, unsurprisingly, turned into a “bitch about new ownership” event), Worcester has back off on that idea.

Apparently one of the spaces in the building on the NE corner of 18th & Wyandotte will become a "real street taco place like on the Boulevard or in KCK - not that Guy Fieri BS" and the hoped-for opening is in September.

So tell us, who's got your vote? If committing to an actual person on the ballot is too much, what *should* a mayor be doing to reduce crime rates and fix potholes?

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Given this is the "close enough" thread - is anyone running an organized write-in campaign for the 2nd district at-large seat?

If so, they have my vote; if not - I'll just write in the name of <random Northlander who lives in that district>.

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Icelandair isn't trying to compete with the US legacies - their game plan the past few summers is to get to any remotely-viable market they could before WOW Air did. They succeeded, as WOW collapsed this morning.
