Feel free to drop by and hang out anyway. We had a signup on my porch a couple weeks back and it was fun just hanging out and talking to people.

The "hint" was brought up at our neighborhood assn meeting tonight. I'm pretty sure someone said a parking lot would be better than the OPUS development.

Unfortunately, no. It was in a meeting.


Any thoughts on if that was just a hint to neighborhood "activists" to take it (Opus) or get a parking lot?

Re: KC in TV and Movies

That embodies every evil and uneducated geographical and idiotic stereotype people have about KC. In 2007 KC is playing Boston but the team jersey everyone is wearing just says "Kansas" on it instead of Kansas City. :shock: The announcer wears a hick polyester jacket and has a vocal twang...

Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

My wife and I were there a few months ago and we were really impressed with Des Moines. A LOT of construction and a neat downtown, although it felt very different than KC. I loved that their river was actually a part of the city and not just ignored and hidden away. Only thing I didn't like was the ...

Re: Acme Cleaning/Luzier Cosmetics Reuse Suggestions

I'm amazed by the pushback some of the neighbors on the neighborhood facebook have to redevelopment in Midtown. Hopefully they are just a small minority of people.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

Someone should show those renderings to the hack architects that are designing the Hyatt Regency. I know one of the architects that worked on this project. He tried but you ultimately have to do what you're told. If I can remember right, I think he said the original public design was toned down fro...
