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

A lot of people complaining about the name having no following or that it's dumb need to remember that only a few years ago a BBQ restaurant was opened with an even worse name and became a huge hit...Q39. A name doesn't really matter. If the food is good, service polite and quick and a good atmosph...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Would much rather see a place like Green Room down in the Crossroads than District that would likely not happen. Heck, I'd love to see a place like GRB down in Brookside/Waldo. Just a good place for a burger or sandwich with fresh ingredients that wasn't cookie cutter, some craft beer, nothing fanc...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

ok so instead of Clay putting forward comprehensive transit plans/funding mechanisms why don't we? Obviously the piecemeal TDD formation is going to be the central strategy for any future expansion efforts but why not also focus on city wide sales taxes? That's the singular reason I voted yes on Q2...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

The reactions to a failed Chastain plan sure have..... evolved over the years. Somehow people are looking to move out of town because KC can't follow a level-headed visionary like Clay Chastain? I have literally seen everything. Can't wait for people to start erecting Mark Funkhouser statues in 5 ye...

Re: Missouri's new voter ID law is in effect for August 8, 2017 election

Maybe I'm wrong, but this seemed like a big fail at my 37th/Main polling place. They displayed the correct sign: https://www.kceb.org/useruploads/8817/AcceptableIDs_1.pdf But, when I presented my valid voter registration card, she pointed at the sign and said Photo ID was required. I asked about &qu...

I'm moving into an office at Corrigan Station on Tuesday. Hoping to finish the move off with a dinner at Corvino. I doubt it will become a regular haunt, but everything sounds really good.

Need to try Antler Room too.

Re: Nature’s Own Full-Service Grocer Opens In River Market

Are these the same people that are opening a grocery store in the old Record Bar space on Westport Rd.?

I'll definitely support that if they have decent products. I didn't love the Nature's Own selection on 43rd and Main that much.

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

Has anyone mentioned Taqueria Silvia's? Is that the food truck around 18th & Cleveland? I like their tacos quite a bit - they do $1 tacos on Tue - includes tax. They're a little on the small side, but good carnitas and pastor. My personal Top 10 street tacos in KC are below - although, I'm sure...

Re: Westport

Why don't the individual bars start wanding or doing pat downs? Or are they already? On Fri and Sat nights, there are a LOT of people in Westport who don't go to bars. They cruise, walk around, start crap with bar patrons, etc. I'm not saying bars shouldn't do more, but not sure the bars wanding/pa...

Good for you! I'm doing one in STL in August for a Sat/Sun night trip. Really looking forward to it. $200/night for a good hotel where I want to be vs. what is usually $80-$110/night on Airbnb seems like a great deal to me.

I can understand noticing the error, but being driven to hatred by it? Why on earth would anyone not familiar with the small Missouri town of 8K people know it's a different pronunciation?

Nice to see they have some fight to them.
