The original Irish pub in that spot was Raglan Road; it closed in 2011.

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

Has anyone heard anything about volunteer opportunities/signups for stress-testing the new terminal? I'd have to imagine we're very close to the point where they'd want to start testing various aspects of the new terminal.

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

Restaurant updates were mentioned at last month's UHNA meeting: - the former Bond's Chicken space at 334 E 31st will be an Asian small plates concept and is part of the The Russell/Tailleur/Cheval restaurant group. - Sol Cantina will reopen as "Barrio" once renovations are complete. - a le...

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

I’ve yet to walk past a Clear checkpoint anywhere that was noticeably shorter than the TSA Pre line, but there must be enough suckers airports that also sometimes have congested TSA Pre lines to explain the company’s continued existence.

Re: News from Omaha

TBH, the only thing that's different between Omaha and KC is that Omaha's downtown bank/bank-like companies want vanity towers and KC's equivalents...do not.

Re: Price Mgmt Project at 31st and Main

I should be live-tweeting this; this is comedy gold. Doug Price hasn’t ever ridden the streetcar himself, and wants to wait until he can "see how the streetcar feels" to decide how to move forward with the parcel.

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

I’m on a Delta flight from Portland to Seattle this afternoon. As it’s a regional jet, I gate-checked my bag and noticed that both of the people in front of me had KC as their final destination. I commented on that to the gate agent, so she checked - *40* people on this flight are going to KC. That’...

I'm sure the updated rendering has nothing at all to do with tomorrow's deadline for public input before the next CPC meeting on the 20th. While I'm likely one of the few people living in this neighborhood who'd be fine if that tower as currently proposed got built (in a timely manner), my Spidey-Se...

Re: beer.

The East Crossroads has one of the densest concentration of breweries...anywhere at this point, and you can easily make an entire day of it in that area alone. Three of them are brewpubs - City Barrel, Brewery Emperial, and Torn Label. Of those three, Torn Label is my favorite for food, but the othe...

Re: Kansas City will likely suffer 'off the charts' heat in the next 30 years, new study predicts

The official weather readings for the city are at KCI - that tracks with the mention of "between 1972 and 2000" from the second article.

Before KCI opening, I'd guess city weather readings were from the downtown airport, and before then...city hall?

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

Air Canada will almost certainly share one of the United gates (as they do currently).

JetBlue will *probably* start out in A8, but if/when their acquisition of Spirit goes through, they could wind up in B as well.

Re: Office project at 27th & Main

Unsurprisingly, this project came up during the last week's Union Hill neighborhood association meeting.

The board said they've heard absolutely nothing from Fidelity recently and that Hallmark still owns the parcel, so if it is still happening, it's gone *very* quiet.
