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...

Re: Bluhawk

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.

Re: Vote Yes or No? A Discussion on the Pros and Cons of Chastain's Plan

I'm still a fan of the gondolas. The idea of going over something to bridge a gap is valid. It's why the city is talking about a streetcar to the riverfront, because it's bridging a gap that's hard to walk. Imagine money was no issue and we need to find a way to connect Crown Center better to Penn ...

Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

Is it likely that Kansas City (and it's metro) will ever grow to become the size of Denver or Seattle? Will KC grow to the population of what Denver or Seattle have currently, or will KC actually catch up to them in real time? Denver metro has 2.8M, and Seattle has 3.8M, while KC is around 2.1M (de...
