Re: Eclipse

Totality was short here, and a bit cloudy, but I managed to get a phone shot: http://i.imgur.com/TWVyie6.jpg

I guess it's not really totality, it never actually got completely dark, but whatever. It looks kinda neat.

Interesting. Salty seems like a sort of post-post hardcore kind of jam.

San Antonio is the worst, but at least they have Whataburger and Taco Cabana.

Just please, no flying cars. Unless they fly themselves. People driving on roads are enough of a menace to other vehicles, people, and property.

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

If it's confusing to people, big deal, they'll figure it out. It won't be confusing to the tourist market, the big 12 customers, the concert goers or anyone else who can use a smartphone to search for nearby restaurants. It won't be confusing to anyone who walks by and can see the Joe's logo, grant...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

Seems very much like they are tryharding to pull off "trendy bistro" or whatever when all anybody--tourists and locals--wants is a bbq joint. I don't doubt it will do well enough, but I'm thoroughly confused how it is that anyone thought this was a better idea than a simple downtown Joe's...

Joe has stated over and over again he is DONE opening more "Joe's". Cool story, but that doesn't really address how anyone thought this was a better idea than that. "I'm tired of giving people what they want, so instead I'm going to give people something vaguely similar but simultane...

Re: Help! Lunch TODAY

The new Hayward's is supposed to be pretty good and seems like it should be close to the area you're talking about, if I'm visualizing it right.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Austin is 660k sf. and 25 gates....so the small AECOM version. While the small AECOM version is cheaper and may fit us currently, that doesn't seem the route to go. Money is cheaper now, let's not pigeonhole ourselves into a terminal that may require expansion plans the day it opens. Were all the A...

Looked roughly comparable to Austin to me, which seems about right. Never been in Wichita's though.

That video... I mean, I'm not totally in love with the mall food court feel, but holy hell what a vastly less unpleasant place to spend time the airport would be.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

It's a 1.5 hour trip. God! Where do you live?!? To be fair, I live in the city just a few miles (7ish minute drive) from where I often work, and it is a 50-minute to 1.5 hour bus journey to the same spot. So why bother? I never have. I could bike there faster. It's useless. Why do we waste money of...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

The problem is that I don't think the problems you're identifying and trying to fix are the actual problems. You seem to be coming from a purely suburban view, which is fine, but those answers have been the only ones anyone cared about for the last 50+ years and they failed. Obviously a 1.5 hour bus...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

You guys are discussing two very different visions, and I think I prefer BFA's. Ensuring ease of access to downtown for the entire metro seems like a continuation of the policies that screwed downtown in the first place.
