Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

"Property located in dense commercial districts and wealthier residential neighborhoods is considered to be 'more valuable' on a per-unit of area basis than property located elsewhere; film at 11."

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:

Re: Boulevardia - June 13-15, 2014

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.

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...

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.
