A snipped from the Pitch article linked above: In this particular case, the trouble appears to be with Blind Tiger's landlord. The tavern's Facebook post includes this explanation: Blind Tiger has been dealing with an unstable landlord who ambushed and shot at the owner. We feel that it is in our be...

Re: Bike Lanes

The same goes for east on 12th; it's effectively down to one lane between Main and Walnut due to a) the never-ending facade work at Andrews McMeel Universal and b) the likelihood of someone illegally parked in front of the T-Mobile store is just short of 100%.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Yeah, it was mentioned on Twitter and in the press release that arrivals and departures would be segregated.

Given that these were preliminary renderings, I'm not terribly surprised they glossed over exactly how ubiquitous our device charging options will be when it's built.

Re: Is the term midwest to broad?

FiveThirtyEight had an article a few years back about how nebulous "the Midwest" is as a regional definition.

Also unsurprisingly, few people are willing to place Missouri as a whole either as a Midwestern or a Southern state.

Re: Streetcar Opposition

Filed January 2017, with the trial currently scheduled for June 2018. Oof. At least since there's been a lawsuit filed, we can stop tiptoeing around Sherry DeJanes' illegal encroachment on the Trolley Track Trail and blatant conflict of interest in streetcar expansion (at least in the hypothetical s...

Re: Eclipse

The whole event takes about 3 hours. For areas around KC, the partial eclipse starts around 11:40, totality is a little after 1, and it’s over around 2:35.

(Edit: NASA has a nice interactive map.)

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

So, hypothetically speaking...if any of us wanted to run for the highly-coveted office of TDD director and somehow got elected, any idea of how much of a time commitment that would end up being?

Also, woo Saturday voting.

Re: Brewpubs

I'm not sure that the "brewpub" genre is as desirable as it once was - there are too many places that serve both solid food and local/interesting beer (from other specialty breweries). The craft beer scene has definitely moved away from brewpubs in favor of taprooms - virtually every new ...
