If I can give anyone advice, it is this: do not miss Nick Cave's Hye Dyve.
I can't amplify this enough. Do not miss this.
Agreed. I saw it a month ago and still think about it nearly every day. I keep nagging my friends go so I can talk about it with someone.

Re: Jefferson City

Really impressive. Beats the hell out of Topeka! Topeka has quite a few interesting things to look at and do such as the North Topeka arts district, you can also tour the beautifully renovated state capital, they have a railroad museum in their old depot north of the river, they have several beauti...

Hong Kong is one of my favorite cities. I'd love to see what you've got.

Re: Slovenia for 7 nights

The parts of Slovenia I saw were lovely. We stayed at a charming cottage on Lake Bohinj and wandered around, ate a lot of the local trout and went on a terrifying (to me) horseback ride in the mountains. Very nice people everywhere we went. Then again, you wouldn't be *that* far from Salzburg or Vie...

Re: Freshwater - Midtown

If I'm going buy it on the trafficway (which does seem like a possibility, given the amount of time I spend on it or near it or crossing it), I want to be eating at Freshwater. My one meal there was so imaginative and delicious, and very reasonably priced.

Re: wtf is happening to w. 39th?!

Meatball District has reopened, but Sultan's has closed, which makes me very sad. They'd branched out from their delicious pastries into shwarma and falafel, both of which were quite good.

Re: Midtown Apartments

The obsession with being able to park 10 feet from wherever you want to be --work, restaurant, home -- is fascinating to me, and something I hadn't come across until moving to KC. Friends in Longfellow had a neighbor who would leave a nasty note on the windshield of anyone who had the temerity to pa...

Re: Dog friendly patios and places

Xroads: Cellar Rat doesn't have a patio, but dogs are welcome inside and will get treats and fussing. (Would not recommend this when it's crowded for a tasting or First Friday, though.)

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

Has anyone ever gone to Jarocho's seafood? Love this place (the KCK one). You're right -- it doesn't look like much from the outside, but there's very high quality food inside, reasonably priced. There's a lot of interesting stuff you won't find anywhere else in town. And watch for dollar oyster ni...

Re: Thrillist ranks KC burgers

The Union Hill Cafe Europa isn't exactly a burger joint, but it does have a tasty burger. I also think the bacon cheeseburger at Fric & Frac is pretty solid, although the fries are all over the map.

Re: Westport's fate post-P&L

Does anyone know if the churches in Midtown are getting parishioners to sign up so they can vote no? I haven't heard a peep from my church, which is right on Main. I would guess -- although I in no way represent the parish -- that our leadership would be in favor of the streetcar extension, because...

Re: Westport's fate post-P&L

https://www.equip-bid.com/auction/search?auction_id=1949&item_status=open Is it true that Murrays is closing? Sad if true, but I have to imagine it's purely by choice. They were only open 3 or 4 days a week for about 5 months during the year. Love their ice cream, though. The Malt Bodine and Chocol...

Re: wtf is happening to w. 39th?!

Thomas has been "closed for remodeling" for several weeks, but given that its phone number's out of service and its Facebook page is gone, I'll go out on a limb and say it's not reopening.

Re: Bridj coming to KC

Any updates from folks? Has anyone used Bridj? I used it for the first time a few weeks ago. Reserved my spot the night before for $1.50. It was definitely the cleanest transport I've ever used. I was the only passenger between KUMed and downtown, so the driver let me off right at my destination in...

It does! Every once in a while I see something here that makes me think "Wow, I'm in a city," and tonight it was this. The columns are beautifully lit.
