Re: Bike Lanes

I assume it's largely safety and traffic data. Although, I imagine there will be businesses that also offer anecdotal/partial data regarding business/revenue being positively/negatively effected by the changes.

Re: Site Logo

How about something black and white... perhaps an old-timey streetcar type theme?

Re: Broadway

"Restaurant" would be a great name.

And is that rendering greatly exaggerating the amount of sidewalk space?

If I just need a fried chicken fix, Go Chicken Go is just fine.

As far as the best fried chicken in KC, I ride with Anthony's on Sundays.

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

Someone in the Broadway thread said the same thing - owned by KC Life and searching for a tenant. That was a few months ago.

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

I love Mesob. Wasn't sure what their fate would be with the re-development going on. I think the Krokstrom space is a bit big for them. I understand their last place was decent-sized, but I imagine the rent of that shitty spot was bit less than what is expected at that Krokstrom space.

Re: St. Louis

In August, I stayed downtown at the hotel connected to the City Museum (The Last Hotel in St. Louis) - I thought it was really nice for a night. Rates weren't terrible. Other than fact that someone did a hit/run on my car parked next to the hotel, it was a cool location for an evening. Stayed out by...

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

People on this board, and everywhere else, are quick to point out why a restaurant fails and/or claim that a restaurant is successful. Appearances can be deceiving. You might think they are doing well when, in fact, they may be struggling and about to close. Same logic for when you think they may b...

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

Krokstrom also failed a concept in Parlor. I'll wait and see how some of the other "weird chef driven" restaurants do before sounding the death knell for the KC food scene. Pot Pie and Blue Stem are on a shittier corner in the same general neighborhood and have been alive and kicking for years. Othe...

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

Shio is better. Komatsu is decent - and a bit more affordable as mentioned. Columbus Park is easily better than both. I haven't been to whatever occupies the Pizza Bella space on Baltimore. With the weather getting ready to change, I'm ready for soup season.

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

That sucks. I've been eating there more and really like the food. Maybe Shio would be a good fit. I feel like Komatsu is kind of winning the Midtown Ramen Race - although I like Shio a bit more.

Re: Strouds

The Troost and Northland locations had a ton of character. The Fairway location was the exact opposite. I dig Stroud's sides, but there wasn't a lot to make me want to go to that Fairway location. Their chicken is OK. Their fried chops are pretty decent too.

Re: Film Row building threatened with demolition

I don't tip as much if I have to fight to get someone's attention - and then all they're doing is pouring a drink and giving it to me. In my mind, that punishes the servers who actually bring me a drink, bring me a check and take care of my table. If I'm taking up space at the bar, that's another st...

Re: Film Row building threatened with demolition

I don't go to Bier Station, so I won't comment on that. Unless I'm at a dive bar, I just don't like having to nudge between two people having a conversation at the bar so I can order a drink. Somewhat related question: Do you tip as much if you have to go up to a bar and get a drink? Unless I'm sitt...

Re: Film Row building threatened with demolition

Stopped in for an after dinner drink on Saturday. I thought it had a weird/sterile vibe. There were two or three people that passed as employees and/or owners in there, but there isn't any table service for some reason. And I like whiskey just fine, but I don't always feel like drinking straight whi...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The renovations were '04 and the lease is through '30. I'm of the opinion that it's just fine. They could do a few more renovations to make it last another decade beyond the current end date for the lease.

I used to be for downtown ball, but I just don't have any passion for it like I used to.
