They're busy enough that we get the stink eye when we show up without a reservation.

The food is just ok, the cocktails were better.

KC has been completely blessed with the execution of the streetcar, so many horror stories from other cities.

Re: Light Rail Systems And Routes In Other Cities

We need Dave to give us a summary of his thoughts on The Hop. I'm mildly skeptical because its a couplet with a directional change (N/S to E/W) but I also don't really know the layout of Milwaukee.
