Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

A development at 1034 or anywhere north of 11th St(Petticoat Lane). While the the skyline from the south has changed with numerous additions this century(albeit nothing that could be called a skyscraper), the north side of the loop is frozen in time from the last century. All those acres of surface...

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

Vildehast and Krokstrom are very good, too bad they can't find a more cost effective way to continue. I'd go more often if priced right but otherwise a once a year thing. Tasty and unique but just not quite worth the price. Yeah too expensive and feels like they could have capitalized off the first...

This "club" is one of couple places modern DJ culture is actually happening in KC now – something completely missing to this point. Sorry they're not buying much food at 10:30p, but it's a good look for our scene.

Re: Westport

Isn't there a 4Chan or Reddit forum you can be polluting rather than this board? There's actually some decent conversation and insight around here. It's really not necessary to troll this.

The owner of one of the businesses next it. They've already started gutting and putting on a new roof. interesting. Seems like a bold move since I believe the approval process hasnt even started yet. That building (house) has been vacant for as long as I can remember - 15+ years? Another nearby pro...

I'm good with FedEx Kinko's there. It's a useful store to have around.
Maybe in that shopping center with the pet store that just closed but the old Freebirds is prime restaurant/bar location. Missed opportunity.

The old Thriftway near Westport/Main has some construction activity. Is it just prepping to lease or is there a tenant signed up?
Last I had hear some sort of grocery store was moving in however the building was in worse shape than they thought.

Vildehast is closing.

Not that suprised.
Aren't they sister restaurants to Krokstrom that keeps saying they can't keep the doors open? Yeah not surprising.
Me thinks those folks are simply bad business people.
