Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

The extreme thin/skinned approach in the second two are very off putting. I get that it can come off that way, but we've been going around in circles with this stuff for years. Ultimately we're going to get whatever we can get precisely because it is what we we were able to get. Not because things ...

Re: Buck O'Neill International Airport

I think that is perfectly rational. I do not think politics or political debates like this are long going to be subject to the constraints of rationality.

Re: Buck O'Neill International Airport

I agree it is harmless. I agree it makes no sense. I also think it's silly and artificial. But if it is harmless and legitimately makes some people happy, what's the big deal? I can't really see any practical reason to oppose. Maybe some day we'd like to name things after people that mean something...

I haven't, although I hear good things about Guerro. Do they actually have seating though?

Re: Electric Park Neighborhood (East Bottoms)

I will be mildly annoyed if the gazillions of dollars I've spent there help facilitate them moving to somewhere I won't ever visit, but hard to blame them if they think they can do even better business elsewhere.

Re: favorite under-the-radar mexican places in the kansas city area?

I do. This probably comes off as a bit of a cop-out, and I haven't tried them all, but in my experience they tend to be FAR more hit than miss so it seems likely that most of them are worth checking out. My top favorite spots never seem to make it very long, I'm not sure whether this means I have ba...

Re: favorite under-the-radar mexican places in the kansas city area?

Given over 40 languages spoken on NE side am surprised not to see more variety of eats outside a couple Vietnamese and an E African. But that's a lot of Mexi for one stretch. We've had several come and go. The diversity is great, but the populations may not be quite dense enough to sustain restaura...

Don't feed the troll. Unless you think you can bait it into doing something banworthy. If it is who I suspect, that shouldn't be difficult. I guess that would solve the problem.

Stranger Things got banned?

Re: Tom Colicchio-involved "Food Hall" to Mission Mall site?

Mestizo was Aaron Sanchez from Chopped et al, and as far as I know he actually owned it and showed up there occasionally.

Fair enough that the resto business is hard, I'd sure as hell not try it.

Re: Tom Colicchio-involved "Food Hall" to Mission Mall site?

Are any of these TV celeb chef suburban satellite spots ever good? Mestizo didn't last very long iirc. I may just be overly cynical, but it does seem a bit like these coastal celebs sometimes think they can get away with mediocrity in flyover country because we're plebs.

Isn't the current vogue to be disproportionately outraged at every real or imagined slight? Or do I spend too much time online, where basically everyone is their worst possible self most of the time?

El Camino and San Antonio do. There are probably others, but I suspect most places just do a pastor-like marinade.
