Re: American Royal BBQ

I'd heard the event becomes more and more about private tents over the years. Additionally, I think there may have been a second flatter entrance towards the back left. Not sure how you make the entrance flatter since the entire track is banked. There is a tunnel that they were running a tram throu...

Re: American Royal BBQ

It never really seemed like a KC Tradition to me. I felt like its always been a "Who u know" event that didn't give a shit about the public or community but if know people in the Royal then its probably amazing. Exactly. Now you can just get a ticket and walk in to the general area. (Could you do t...

Re: Open Spaces - Kansas City Arts Experience

I think it's more fear than anything. From the 70's until today it certainly is not perceived as a safe area. Southside used to have biker gangs hanging out most of the time. And the northside is adjacent to the "Murder Factory". The actual safety of the park is much different than the perceived saf...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

I was going to suggest across the creek from Nelson Atkins, then realized that was the MRI Global property haha. Don't think we have to worry about William Jewell becoming a big player, their accreditation is currently on probation. I'd leave MRI Global alone. It fits in well where it is and doesn'...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

Moving Rockhurst out of the area won't add 10k students to UMKC. Those kids won't transfer because Rockhust moved. Correct. I looked up the Rockhurst enrollment. They only have about 3k students. So, wouldn’t increase UMKC numbers even if everyone transferred. It would provide additional facilities...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

If you build a lot of campus housing then the university will start requiring that students live on campus, at least for their freshman year. That would add another 8 grand a year to the cost of college. UMKC's mission is to provide university-level education at an affordable price, and that moves t...

You know where there is plenty of room for a stadium? Southeast of 14th and Genessee.

Re: Layoffs at The Star

Omaha, St. Louis and Springfield Mo. have better papers with WAY more local content than the Star. Each charge $9.99 a month for digital. KC Star charges $12.99.

McClatchy is a poorly run company. Hope for bankruptcy and that someone of merit picks them up.

Re: Interstate 70 KC to St Louis

The sweet spot on I-70 is the speed limit. Set the cruise at 70 and you almost never have to hit the brakes. Can't explain why but it works. I drive I-70 and I-29 a couple of times a month. I couldn't agree more. I've driven I-70 back and forth from KC to StL to KC hundreds of time (it seems) since...

Re: People Watching in KC

Nomads or Bux...one of those coffee shops along 39th near KU Med are perfect for watching everything from professionals to homeless to students to goths out doing whatever it is they do, going wherever it is they go. I love people-watching. Thank you, good suggestion. And I can get a Salty Lox at M...

I've always liked watching the people standing on liberty memorial from the north lawn. Some nice benches under shade around there.
Excellent suggestion.

People Watching in KC

I'm off this week and am planning on drinking coffee, reading, and people watching. I've got the first two under control. But where is the best place to see the world go by? My current go-to spot is Parisi in Union Station. Suggestions?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Almost impossible to tell from these poor initial renderings, but where is the awesome scallop-roof design from the preliminary images? I loved that element, and if we get a generic flat box I'll be very disappointed. I understand perhaps losing the two-story indoor fountain, but first impression i...

Re: Interstate 70 KC to St Louis

Perhaps one thing that would help with passing would be making I-70 three lanes between Kansas City and St. Louis. I have wanted to see that for a long time. I-70 is probably the most important part of Missouri's highway system and KC and STL are large enough cities (with Columbia in the middle) to...

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

Need a special assessment tax for surface parking that makes it difficult to justify them financially. Use the revenue to build city-owned parking structures.
