Re: Westport

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.

Re: Proposed: Hyatt House Hotel- 900 Broadway

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 ...

“Darlene” is nothing more than a figment of someone’s imagination, for the record. Whoever thinks this trolling is cute will give up if people ignore the posts.

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!

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 ...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

2. Icelandair loads have been roughly 72% to/from KC so far. Just over a month left in the season but loads have slipped since school started back up. So thats roughly 800 of the 7-10 thousand weekly KC-Euorpe travelers are picking Icelandair. (Roughly 500-700 daily OD during the summer). Pretty go...

Re: Politics

The baseline level of public interest in young white women going missing is orders of magnitude higher than it is for anyone else, so there's that. I'm curious how your both-sidesing comment holds in this instance - there's not all that much to say about mass murders/our embarrassingly high homicide...

Re: Interstate 70 KC to St Louis

Driver licensing in most European countries is considerably more time-consuming, difficult to pass, expensive, and...actually teaches you how to drive compared to what passes for driver testing and licensing here.

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

They've had signs up on the railing for the past week or so that say "Under New Management / Extensively Remodeled", so I don't know if that's a step in getting consent, they got their liquor license back while appealing, or something else. In the past 2-3 weeks (if not longer than that) Stanford's...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

KC had a pretty active Ingress community - and nearly all of them moved over to Pokemon Go.

So while the casual players have fallen away, the dedicated players are as active as ever...and summer weekend afternoons at the Plaza is a very popular location to meet up for coordinated Pokemon-ing.

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

I was primed to make another joke about the neverending Pickleman's project (as the posters covering the windows appear to have fallen down yet again recently), but I'll be damned - they were issued a new permit today.
