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...

Ollie's on 31st has a nice shaded patio and will bring water for your dog.

Re: Dog friendly restaurant/bar patios

W. 39th:
Miami Ice has a water bowl
Fric & Frac has outdoor seating for all and the occasional piece of bacon for favored pups.

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 Ch...

I got the BridjBOX invite too, although at the top of the site, it says:

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.

Re: 2014 - 2015 College Football Season

Given the history of the state and many universities in general no surprise at all. My mistake. As a relative newcomer, I am still learning that in many ways, Missouri appears to have more in common with its neighbors to the south than with its neighbors to the north. Iowa State and the U of Iowa w...

Re: 2014 - 2015 College Football Season

If Mizzou hadn't left the Big 12, maybe its administrators could have watched how Oklahoma's leaders handled that school's racist unpleasantness, and maybe they would still have jobs. Also: First black student in 1950? Boggles the mind.

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

I should be excited about something finally filling the Mama's space, but I am decidedly meh about this. Probably because, like the liquor store next door, it feels to me more like an enterprise of orneriness rather than filling a void in the area. For Asian cuisine, that stretch of 39th already has...

Re: Mo's Italian Spot - 59th & Prospect

Finally tried Mo's tonight with another former Chicagoan. Over our delicious sandwiches -- Italian beef dipped for her, meatball for me -- we were already talking about our next visit. I have nothing to say that hasn't already been said: homey little space, friendly staff, giant portions, excellent ...
