Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I have warned everyone that overnight scooters are a very real possibility. Between larger batteries and batteries that can be swapped in the field, it's a no-brainer.

Mean Mule Distilling on Locust appears to be close to opening. I've been trying to track this but they seem to have pretty much zero social media presence. Do you know if this just a production facility or will they have a tasting room too? Why not have a tasting room? Noted that there was a Mean M...

Re: Maxwell-Briscoe Garage at 1612 Grand

"Signature" certainly raised an eyebrow here. My definition would be: Halls, Baldwin, Tivol. Does anything else even come close?

Re: Hotel Bravo- 17th and Wyandotte

Pretty sure the TIF request will get shot down. It's pretty laughable. Start over with a simple 75% abatement, perhaps.

Seven restaurants, two bars. Soft opening this week and full opening this weekend.
