The neighbors are all worked about an application for a liquor license for a new bar on W 39th in the location that was most recently a thrift store - small building on the SW corner of 39th/Mercier). Apparently the business would build a deck in the back, have yard games and a large outside space. One neighbor on the Neighbor app says they don't want any more bars because 39th will turn into Westport and there will be shootings.

I can understand not wanting to live directly next to a place where there will be noise and music til 1:30 every night (although since it's not my house, I'm all for it!), but let's be reasonable.

People really need to better understand the difference between correlation and causation.

Meatball District has reopened, but Sultan's has closed, which makes me very sad. They'd branched out from their delicious pastries into shwarma and falafel, both of which were quite good.

I really miss Sultans. The schwarma was excellent

Rumor is that The Farmhouse (RM resto) is opening a second location somewhere on 39th street.

That is no longer a rumor

Can't wait! With all of the closings recently, this type of business is sorely needed.

Actually 39th Street is lousy with JO license plates.  On a weekend night easily half of the cars are from Joco.  It's a mostly non-threatening way for them to go into "the city" for dinner without going very far into scary Missouri.

Sarcasm side, 39th Street draws from all over the metro, including Blue Springs and Olathe.  It's a regional dining destination.
Missouri is awesome. We love going whenever we get the chance. We've been in a rut the last few months since The Mission Taco Joint opened a KC location in the Crossroads. They serve food until 11:15, so we usually get there around 10:30 or so and have some jam band, shrimp and mushroom tacos.

The cocktails are good and so are the local brews. I'm addicted to (pardon me if I spell incorrectly) Cervais Grande.
