Great, a nightclub. I don't want to be too negative about this, but I'm not thrilled with this development.

Ran by the Tiger Tail Saloon yesterday evening. Didn't realize what the place was until I read the KC article. As I was running by two girls were walking the opposite way past the door and a patron yelled out the door "rape me, raaaappppeee meeeee". The two girls gave each other a quisical look then increased their pace briskly. So, they got that going for them...

I was walking past that old white tiled building next to Anthony's on Grand (seem to recall something about it being an old White Castle). They have opened up the window and a guy in a Baldwin denim cap was in there working. I was on the other side of the street, so I couldn't ask him what he was up to. Anybody know what's going on there?

Yeah -- I checked KIVA for permits. Maybe they're just doing some repairs and not materially altering the structure?

Just out of curiousity, what makes a Baldwin denim cap unique enought to tell what it is from across the street? Serious question.

Ok, let's narrow your bracket shift down.

1-Are you awaiting the opening of a 'real' noodle shop?

2-Have you started feeling anxiety, or perhaps a tinge of hatred, when the streetcar is mentioned?

According to Joyce, town pavillion will be getting a BBQ joint.

So this sounds like one of the outside facing spaces, not the food court. Will they be open evenings?
