Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Wichita! https://www-1.kansas.com/sports/mlb/article237008899.html There's decent bike infrastructure right at the stadium so I think they might be fairly successful. There's a signed bike route immediately west, and to the east both sides of the river are multi-use paths. They already do a bike va...

He was arguing it was a premier retailer from 80s to 00s and picked some companies that opened stores after that timeline as evidence it stopped having premier retailers.

Re: Ward Parkway Center

H-E-B's Central Market chain blows everything else out of the water and we could really use more stores like it here. (Sidenote: Central Market does exist in the DFW mextroplex) I think the closest thing we have is the fancy Hen House?

Google shows they have an office at 1200 Main as well. Is that listed as Google or their parent Alphabet? Replica is a people moving mapping tool from Alphabet's Sidewalk Labs (smart city division) that is based out of KC. Replica was spun off as its own company just last week, still based in KC. E...

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

Krokstrom was on Triple D this week, might help them boost sales. That really seems like a restaurant that doesn't fit the Triple D mold, it's not really a diner, drive in or dive and it's quite expensive and portions are small, this might actually backfire with people that watch and eat at DDD res...

Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

Wichita city proper probably only has growth because they are annexing a lot of areas. If u Google wichita and see there city limits there is an island that is like 30 miles SW of Wichita by Viola KS. That can't be part of the city can it? Looks like it's a police-related facility owned by the city...

If they would have moved downtown then, they'd still be looking to move with how much they've shrunk?

Seems to be these guys? Menu looks fine. Website says they have a location in Santa Monica and another at Pitt State in Pittsburg, KS. That seems... odd.
Nothing comes up on Google Maps by that name in Pittsburg, which is even stranger.
