Re: OFFICIAL: Power & Light District

I don't see Flying Saucer opening back up sadly. The staff at Flying Saucer was told today that it will not be reopening, so this has moved past the rumor stage. As someone who spent...way too much time there over the past decade, this hurts, but isn't terribly surprising. The writing was on the wa...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

KCEB also mailed out Voter ID cards (they have an ID number! and a barcode!) about a month ago, so using a utility bill in this scenario is being willfully asinine.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Both things can be true: - Voter ID is a thinly-veiled excuse for voter suppression to begin with, but as we're forced to show *something*, it might as well be the least-official form of ID. - Even if this wasn't an pre-planned political stunt, never underestimate Mayor Q's Spidey-Sense for milking ...

Where is the Pizza Hut/KFC?
I'm guessing that's a conflation of the Pizza Hut location on Broadway with the former Pizza Hut/KFC combo location on Petticoat.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I'm a little surprised that the Google Fiber set-top TV boxes/DVRs haven't been killed in favor of YouTube TV.

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

I don’t feel the need to reward incompetent businesses just for existing.

Apparently the franchisees were also blaming the Andrews McMeel construction as an additional reason for why it took them so long to open. :roll:

From this morning's 2020 announcement email:

"With the support of Crown Center and the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department, this year’s festival will take place on Grand Boulevard, and throughout Crown Center and Washington Square Park, in Kansas City, MO."

Re: Boulevardia - June 13-15, 2014

Given the amount of space that Boulevardia takes up in the West Bottoms, I wouldn't be surprised if it'll be in/around some combination of Union Station, Washington Square Park, and Crown Center.

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.

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.

Re: Various restaurants coming to City

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.
