Between Genessee, Voltaire and Woodswether, I've got my food options covered, and now I hear about another bar, The Ship. Throw in the multitude of festivals, Boulevardia, Baconfest, Royal and you're just a little residential away from vibrancy. Go Bill Haw!
I stumbled into the West Bottoms by accident on my recent trip to KC. The place was hopping. I arrived totally by accident during "Warehouse Weekend" (I think that was what it was called) and it was an extremely well attended event. I really liked the options the food trucks brought along. But they've got to do something with the odor down there - it certainly discouraged any appetite. The smell of sewage was pretty strong and pervasive while we were there; I am hoping that is not a regular occurrence.
Glad you were able to see the Bottoms on its best weekend! I haven't noticed the sewage odor in the area where most of the antique/furniture places are, however it is ever present on the I-70 viaduct.
