Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

If the stadium is built there, can we change the name of the neighborhood? East Village is stupid. Who came up with that shit? The same person who came up with "SoLo"?

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

I’ve been looking into townhomes/rowhouses to buy and the one thing I dislike about the typical new construction is that their layouts are so boring- just one huge open room with two bedrooms upstairs. My current house is the same square footage as most i look at and it is just so much more interes...

I am seeking investors for a new venture that will capitalize on the popular trend of ax grinding, with a location in West Plaza. DM to learn more about this exciting opportunity. Use the code West Edge for a special KCRag discount.

Re: How Kansas City got its' name

Whatever. Possum Trot is a superior name. I'm going to start using this, as it invokes less confusion. From heretoforth, I live in Possum Trot, Missouruh. Same zip code, though.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

It will be fascinating to see the stats if/when the expansion gets completed. I, for one, almost never ride the streetcar. I walk. But I will ride the expanded line all the time.

On the other hand hangovers are much easier
Working the night shift and sleeping during the day seems like the most likely reason.
And blind tenants, second most likely reason.

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Hate to be negative, but these past few developments look terrible. I hate to agree with this, but it's t...

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

People on this board, and everywhere else, are quick to point out why a restaurant fails and/or claim that a restaurant is successful. Appearances can be deceiving. You might think they are doing well when, in fact, they may be struggling and about to close. Same logic for when you think they may be...

After so many years of headaches and disgust with Time/Warner (pre-Google Fiber), I would never switch to Spectrum – even if it was free. Even if they paid me.

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

The Thai place in the old Pizza Bella is excellent, but perhaps a bit pricey.
I had the pancake at Shio last week and cannot stop thinking about it. In a good way.
