Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Hopefully they still put the angled accent piece on top like the rendering. Doesn't look bad without it, just seems like it would even it out a little bit.

Re: Union Station

They have two alternate paths to the bridge they open up depending on if the best alt is blocked off. Have you been looking for this path? They usually put up signs. They don't do great with the signs, but yes, there are other ways of getting to the bridge. I usually just walk through the Amtrak si...

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

What's my point? It's time that suburbanites in KC learn that "driving all the way downtown" and "Is it safe there?" need to be removed from their psyche. Get out of your cocoon and live a little. It's still crazy to me that people have the viewpoint that people who live in the ...

Re: KC in TV and Movies

I was making a joke about your wording, which seemed to imply that because you are nearsighted you could see the buildings in the foreground of the commercial just fine, but not the buildings in the background. You actually mean that, did you? The buildings in the background of a recorded video are...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Have noticed some people are still not aware streetcar is free to ride. Maybe the streetcar should be renamed as Free Streetcar. I've never taken any time to think about how I would know it was free if I was from out of town or just really out of touch. If they aren't making it blatantly obvious at...

Cosentino's and their "Market 48'" liquor store opened in Bluhawk yesterday. It's really well done and it was packed with people when I went in. Prices seemed more reasonable than I expected. Outside of what you might find in a normal store, it has a gelato area, sushi bar, juice/smoothie ...

Ya it just goes to photobucket and puts a big ad in front that can't be closed for some reason. I'm sure I'll see it later when I'm on my desktop but photobucket has definitely gone downhill.
