Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

The newish LUV is a big improvement over the previous iteration, agreed. Assuming you mean DAL.

Re: Crown Center: urban disaster, shining star, or in-between

All the Crown Center restaurants that were managed by the Hyatt (and, presumably after the change, the Sheraton) were pretty bad. Milano, Crayola, etc. I'd be curious if all of them closing is part of the hotel divesting itself of managing all those external businesses.

I agree that it's vastly different. I'm not sure it sucks. After all, we get to hear Joe Buck talk for three hours.

Re: What Makes a Good Rooftop Sign?

You can outlaw anything, unless there's a law against outlawing it; but then you can just outlaw the law against outlawing the thing you want to outlaw.

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

Nothing says "I take transit" like a fistful of taquitos. I really don't get what point you are trying to make. People who take transit don't want grab-and-go food? Obviously, the point I am trying to make is that you can identify regular transit riders by their affinity for roller grill taquitos. ...

Re: Mark Twain Tower going residential?

There are at least three large parking garages within a block, which I have never seen full, but I have no idea if they're planning to lease spots in one. I can't imagine that building has any parking at the moment, but I have no idea. Surely someone around here knows more than I do.

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I won't say I predicted it, that would be too far, but I did mention to a friend at the start of Q2 that while I was sorely tempted to turn it off and go back to playing video games, I would kick myself for doing so in the unlikely event of an "epic Mahomes comeback". Now they just have to knock off...

They were quite busy at lunch today, but the line moved reasonably quickly. The Italian Beef is decent. I'll probably go back, if I can remember it actually opened.

Re: Waddell & Reed - 14th & Baltimore

I'd rather have 4-6 story buildings as far as the eye can see connected by streetcar than some Dubai or Vegas shit where there are a reasonably impressive number of large towers but the street level experience is a complete sewer of massive parking structures, surface lots, and road infrastructure. ...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

I don't care if they spend some money on bike racks, I just think it's amusing. I can see the use case, I just can't see it happening in reality. I've already had to hear excessive bellyaching about how they're putting in bike lanes up north. BUT MAH TRAFFIC! MAH CAR!
