Re: Westport

Hate to lose McCoy's. I think their food stayed solid for their entire run. The last meal I had there was excellent. Not saying there weren't some bad ones in there too, but overall they seemed to maintain. I think their beer game turned a bit south after their brewer left, but they could still put ...

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

https://cityscenekc.com/downtown-dazzle-urban-homes-tour-this-saturday/ With the lack of downtown jobs (especially tech type jobs that appeal to younger people) you have to think downtown is reaching that saturation point of those willing to pay more to live downtown AND commute to suburban jobs.

Of course not - I had assumed that my word choice for nearly every word after "gentrified" in that comment would have given away that I don't actually believe it is, but here we are.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Looks like Ruins will be opening with same concept and new menu but the name will change to "Taps on Main". Why do they have to do the generic name. I refuse to go now because of this name. How about Streetcar Taps? KC Taps? Or, Kansas City Streetcar Beer Hall Cafe, Taverne and Occasional Stripper?

Re: Misc Crossroads News

How is Blvd Tavern doing? I feel like that place has no buzz, same with the Health Food place right by it Health Food place? I can only assume you mean Town Topic. Or, if you're referring to Cafe Gratitude - they seem to have a pretty dedicated following. Even though it wasn't for me. I haven't bee...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

At LaGuardia, just because you see exposed wires hanging from the ceiling doesn't mean anybody is actually doing any construction Exposed wire at Laguardia just means that portion of the airport is actually wired for electricity. It's more the F1 Grand Prix course they have set up around the place ...

They've been renovating Laguardia since Laguardia was mayor. Has anyone ever been there when it's not under construction?

Re: Thunder

One of the regional Fox Sports stations carries the Thunder on TV on Google Fiber.

It's good to have on considering we don't get too much NBA here otherwise. There are other Fox Regional stations that list NBA quite a bit, but they're always blacked out.

Re: Bike Lanes

I think the word "clear" is a pretty generous term for what they do to the driving lanes.

ETA: Not saying they should be dumping in the bike lanes - it's pretty much like the bike lanes don't exist when it snows. It's wrong.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

It's not that it's significant exactly, it's just nice architecture, and seems to be in good condition. Just a shame to lose it. I always balk when someone suggests tearing down perfectly good, decently-maintained buildings. If the church population has dropped too low to maintain it, then why not ...

Re: beer.

Something called Friction Beer just posted on Twitter that they signed a lease with Butch Rigby and will be in a "very popular part of town". They also thanked the Xroads Retail Group. So... maybe Tapcade? Not sure at all.
