Yeah those work if I'm buying something for myself. But if you're in the wedding party, you need to rent the tux/suit to match the group.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

A group of community leaders want to create the Plaza Council Association, a well-funded, nonprofit organization similar to the Downtown Council to work collaboratively on the Plaza's behalf. From my impression, the Downtown Council seems to have been a positive for downtown KCMO. Some big successes...

Pet Peeve: How is there not a Mens Warehouse closer to downtown? It's pretty frustrating having to drive 25+ minutes out south each time I have a wedding. Feel like this would make sense in P&L or the Plaza. Especially because it would make it easier for the out of town attendees to return their...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Cool shot, but people in KC will never admit that the city probably has the least amount of traffic (on surface streets) and pedestrians of any mid-large city in the country. That's just from my experience. Downtown KC is a VERY quiet place. It just is. I know it has its busy times when venues are ...
