Re: Corvino

Ravenous won't open until next spring, it appears; the secondhand information I've heard is that getting the code issues resolved involves installing a window.

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

A running list of things the Pitch hates on in 2019: 1. Jolie Justus 2. Kevin Collison 3. Unnamed investor-owned restaurants To stay on-topic, Krokstrom was...fine. I didn’t get the love it got in some KC food circles, though; my visits there left me with the sense that it believed itself to be a ru...

Re: OFFICIAL - Wallstreet Tower (formerly US Bank Tower)

There appears to be some sort of soft event going on tonight - valets are standing around outside, patio furniture is out, and boxes of booze were being broken up inside.

As another data point, Tank 7 is $4 (13-oz pour) at the Flying Saucer for at least part of the day every day except Saturday...and $6.50 when it's full-price.

Re: Sporting Kansas City

MLS scheduling is going to become...interesting as the league marches towards 28 teams. The easiest way out in a 28-team league would be four 7-team divisions: 2 games against the other six teams in the division + 1 game against the remaining 21 teams = 33 games. This scenario also makes adopting an...

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

Once you realize that mgsports is a chatbot that's been trained to suggest things that don't currently exist in KC should move here and things that exist only in KC should move elsewhere, all the pieces fall into place.

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

So...that realistically explains a year (18 months if we're being generous) of the delay?

For their sake, they better hope that's a very profitable location to be worth all those sunk costs.

The flight additions notwithstanding, I wonder if Alaska will move over to Terminal C at some point, as Alaska's codeshare and frequent-flyer agreements with Delta go away at the end of April.
I’ve earned this self-congratulatory post on my 2017 prediction.

Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

If anyone here has any real-life connections to the principals at Worcester, they *really* need to know that their company is comically inept at communication (or worse, knows it and doesn't care). At the rate they're going, 909 will be a high-rise, modestly nicer version of SouthRidge Apartments in...

Re: Generic ongoing KCATA thread

Is real-time tracking broken? I’ve been listening to a friend say that it’s vanished from Google Maps in the past few days and a spot-check of other apps indicates that it’s patchy at best at the moment.
