Re: Union Station

It sounded cool as hell on Sunday night in midtown. Loved hearing the old school sounding whistle.

I prefer the trip out to Kauffman to be considered shlugging
FWIW, to me, it sounds like you're just trying to make up Yiddish words. Which is kind of insulting/demeaning for people who have that language as a part of their family's recent history.

Re: Ward Parkway Center

For those who didn't click, Torchy's from Austin is opening a place at Ward Parkway. Good get for them. It's a long way for me to drive for tacos, but I'll give it a shot.

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

The parking would be a definite advantage for a lot of us, but I don't think that's representative of the overall fanbase. It was only $15, btw.

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Even a bad team brings in an event 81 nights a year and the atmosphere would likely draw more fans than having to shlug out to Kauffman Ticket prices will likely be much higher in a new stadium. They always are. I'm not going to say Royals fans should be compared to Miami fans, but look at what a b...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

There’s really no harm in leaving the Royals out at TSC. The urban core of KC is doing pretty well without them. I’d hate to see us hitch so much money and acreage to the competence of a sports team - especially one that’s had 2-3 good years in the last 30. Agree, have mentioned I would've supporte...

So I've been in the afternoon once to check out the amaro selection, how much space at the bar? I must have totally missed it.
Antler Room has good Amaro selection as well if you haven't been.

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: Broadway

"Restaurant" would be a great name.

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

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

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.
