Re: Lions Choice

I think it’s a great name. Makes perfect sense. Never gave two thoughts about when growing up in the Lou. Eating there was a treat. Amazing food. So glad they are in the KC metro now. Hope they survive, but agree, KC people have been dumbed down for years by the plasticy/rubbery Arby’s roast beef a...

I grew up in STL and we never went to one. I still haven't been.

Re: Lions Choice

Maybe the odd name? Who wants to eat a lion? Or eat what a lion chooses?

Re: KC's Big 5 needs for 2020s

Do you know KCATA hasn't looked at other past attempts? Looking at cities that have tried in the past, a major reason they didn't continue was apparently due to vandalism in several cases. But these were a long time ago before live video streams were commonplace on buses. KC buses have video monitor...

Re: KC's Big 5 needs for 2020s

Already video recording on KC buses. Not sure if all of them, Dave would know. I think all buses have free WiFi but only newish ones have USB charging ports. I've been riding KC buses since the 90s and have run across bad behavior only a few times, though mainly taking buses through Waldo/Midtown/Do...

Re: KC's Big 5 needs for 2020s

Yeah, KC will stand out if this succeeds and if others follow KC will be referenced as a leader in this space. The success of free streetcar is why we are talking about this. Need to keep that momentum going. Those who have no interest need to realize they still benefit if not intending to use it. T...

Re: KC's Big 5 needs for 2020s

Gotta start somewhere and if it succeeds it could go metro wide. The confusion shouldn't last long. Bottom line, if you are not a KCMO resident, you can use when within KCMO. But even if it doesn't go metro it still gets many people to jobs that are in the city and doesn't use up parking spaces (ava...

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

Until there is a Target, would be nice if they would sell a broader range of products than QT type goods. They could do well selling anything not available downtown.

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

Not confused. Some are subsidized that way but not all. Many decent cheapies out there that aren't Smart TVs. Point being across many kinds of products, cheapies are now often pretty doable, but at the expense of questionable cheap labor. Even worse when products with high profits are still at expen...

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

And given the high rent the prices may not be as low. I never shopped dollar stores but went into the Dollar Tree in Westport one time when we were waiting at First Watch. Was amazed at what you can get for a buck. I did pickup a few things, some phone charging cables and bathroom night lights. Saw ...

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

They are putting these in 'hip' urban neighborhoods around country so not surprising they chose Xroads. But I wonder if the prices are as thrifty friendly. Midtown Atlanta is not pleased... https://www.cbs46.com/news/midtown-residents-not-pleased-with-incoming-dollar-general/article_8fe647a4-3194-11...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Kauffman Village or Square = greater area
Glass Park = an actual park with statue within area, maybe part of stadium grounds

XYZ Stadium at Glass Park in Kauffman Village, KC, MO, USA, NA, Planet Earth, Sol System, Milky Way, Universe #34602

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Kauffman Village?
Kauffman Square?
Kauffman Park?

The stadium naming rights could sell every few years. Naming the area after Kaffman should stick.

Re: Downtown KC has become Digital Nomad friendly

Per the first post have mentioned I’ve been doing the digital nomad thing for last 8+ years. Roaming Central/South Florida this winter as usual, LA next, tend to do NYC every fall. Hit other cities too though more as a visitor where these 3 areas tend be closer to the experience of a resident. Other...

Sounds like a good fit. And Opera House eats are above average, most items anyway. Hopefully they can improve the sterile atmosphere of the place though something different than OH.

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

An upgrade would've been better or maybe a Legoland restaurant? Fritz's also could upgrade their menu from frozen fried foods or maybe better frozen fried foods. A lot of parents complaining on Yelp about the 80s frozen fried food menu.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

For a second the description sounded like it could be a hostel but sounds like it leans toward an AirBNB. Downtown could use a hostel or some form of cheapish beds for rent, cheaper than a downtown AirBNB room. Can get an AirBNB room for as low as $30 in midtown but not downtown.

Re: OFFICIAL - Waddell & Reed - 14th & Baltimore

Back to the developers response to adding landscaping...

Adding shrubbery to an already isolated island building literally turns this into a 'walled garden'. The city must not accept that.
