Re: Port Authority Seeks Federal Money to Build Wharf for Barges in West Bottoms

I think barge traffic would be great to watch.  Sitting on the banks of the mississippi in new orleans and watching barge traffic is a great atmoshphere (not smelly, not sure where thats coming from)...especially think it would be well suited in west bottoms.  I always see lots of people s...

Re: New convenience store/deli on 3rd street - Market3

I wandered by on saturday as well and saw people there and asked if they were open.  They invited us in and fed us there food and wine (forgot it was wine walk day).  Very nice people and I also like where their vision is headed.  Talked alot about trying to use local products and gea...

Re: Pieroguys getting space in City Market ready

While I was walking around the market Saturday I thought I saw a sign at the ordering window outside Carollo's that said "Pierogies made to order" or something close.  Not sure if they meant they'll help you order bulk or make one for you there.

Re: What was your job in "Exchange City"?

I was an industrial magnate=warehouse manager.  Had no idea what the hell that job would entail when I got it, but it turned out to be surprisingly lucrative...we were the only organization that didn't have to pay back a "start-up" loan to the bank and all other businesses' were forced to buy t...

Re: ideas for the SW and SE corners of Linwood & Troost.

Wow, thanks for the giving us a look back at that area of troost, even if it is a bit depressing.  Hopefully some new residential will be able to bring back this area...after the financial system works itself out that is.

Re: OFFICIAL - Performing Arts Center construction

I also would say that while this building will not quite be as big as say...the Sidney Opera House, it will indeed be much MUCH more complex and take a ton more finishing work. In person the Sidney Opera house didn't really semm to be that large of a building to me (or at least not as big as i thou...

Re: Black & Veatch evaluates office space needs

I certainly wish a large successful company would at least consider moving into the downtown of their metro area...its too bad if they don't at least consider.  I would hope KC would pursue all options to get them there. as to where the topic meandered... It seems to me a lot of companies were ...

Re: KC in TV and Movies

I recently watched the movie "4 Brothers".  I know its set in detroit, but scenes from around the city definitely gave me a nostalgic feel for KC. It was strange how similar it seemed to areas of KC(and maybe even a little sad).  Just thought I'd throw this out there after reading how a fe...

Great pics, thanks.  Good to see pics of home everyonce in awhile. You actually made the zoo look cool.  Last time i went to the zoo all i remember was the smelly ape/monkey spot and a polar bear behind prison bars.

Re: Chiefs

I saw as one of the stories on the Yahoo homepage (so don't know if its credible) that Arrowhead has a "no standing policy".  It was more of a bitchy opinion piece so was just wondering if this really is a rule...is it new/old?  are they really going to try to enforce it?
