Re: KC in TV and Movies

Watching Jimmy O Yang’s (Jin Yang in Silicon Valley) standup on Amazon. Does a bit ripping on KC “not being racist but act like a pack of giraffes ran by” when they see an Asian.

Pretty routine comedy based off Chinese stereotype jokes

Tough time to open, but they appear to have opened for can sales last week. Part of “brewer alley” with Double Shift and Border. I haven’t given them a try yet but will to offer some support.

Re: COVID19

Stigma may be associated with behavior before/after symptoms. People will judge each other if you spread it due to not taking no-contact seriously. I can see finger pointing and blaming people

Sure, but could we re-open the sidewalk perhaps? I can't socially distance on a two-foot sidewalk.
Seriously. I don't know how anyone enjoys that patio anyway?
I figured it was so smokers could go out with their beer. I imagine the new tenant will want to keep it for this reason too.

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

I guess Anton’s diner concept didnt survive? I didn’t realize it closed. Edit: I should have read the article first... “Cascone’s closed in 2018 and its location was taken over by Anton Kotar last year for a brief-lived healthy diner place called Estelle’s Diner. It closed in late 2019 after being i...

Re: Various restaurants coming to City

Funny. I went to Streetcar a couple weeks ago and echo everything that’s been said about ambiance, food and beer price. I believe I got a Torn Label (I know it was a nearby/local taphouse beer), decided to go for the “large“ 23oz and had some sticker shock at the $10 price tag. I don’t know what the...

Re: Downtown Tanners closing?

I stopped into the new(ish?) Broadway Grille and Sports tonight. I believe that is the current iterations name at least, the bartender did have a “beer 30” T-shirt on but I did not believe that was the name. Anyway, trying to not pre-judge the place it seems like it could be really successful if the...

Too many weird places down there now and with all the buildings going in no place to park.
I want to have some drinks with Darlene, MGS and FlyingEmber.

Re: Open Spaces - Kansas City Arts Experience

:shock: 62 days :shock:
Hopefully they market the hell out of it. No excuse for anyone living in KC to NOT check it out at some point. I love the Swope Park focus, hopefully this activates the park for more events (ethnic food fest is already great)

New signage up for Broadway Bistro on the outside of the building which looks nice. Also a banner up for an arcade on the second floor of the building. Anyone hear anything about this??

Whoa, is the debate about e-scooters on sidewalks vs street/bike lanes? Having 2 kids and living thru the razor scooter craze (downtown with them) sidewalks would be a nightmare.

It’s a vacant lot but I think this fits best here...does anyone know what’s happening in the small field across from 910 Penn (9th and Pennsylvania across from State Street). There has been surveying going on and now there’s a big truck that looks like it’s taking soil core samples or something. See...

He had beef with Toms Town serving wine and Sundry selling packaged beer as a grocery though. Something must have changed because Sundry has a bar now.

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Sounds confusing. I can see it working if they put out one or two solid dishes for each ethnicity that compliment each other rather than a page of dishes from each. Naan,basmati and tandoori chicken with fajitas or Korea bbq....? Could work.

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

I believe the highway signs on northbound I-35 directs “Sprint Center traffic” to use the 14th St exit rather than Broadway (which would include Truman) or 12th Street. Just an FYI for the discussion. People coming from the south, that’s the option they’re told.

I haven't seen the show yet, but after seeing these pics why couldn't they focus on a house that REALLY needed some work put into it? From the outside, this one doesn't appear all that bad in the grand scheme of things. It was split into a tri-plex and they brought it back to a single family. Only ...

Ya, I agree. As I watched te 3rd episode I started feeling swamped in Loose Park and the Plaza. They did have a nice drone shot of Jansen Place though. Another house redone with the same white tile/quartz and glass aesthetic throughout as the others. She did showcase a couple local businesses which...
