Once the streetcar extension is underway I expect any vacant lots to disappear, and then more than a few teardowns and replacements(like some of t...

Re: Bike Lanes

Every time I am driving and there is a biker minding their own business I will follow them if I can and leave a good car plus space between us. I will follow at 5 mph if needed. I hope this doesn't scare anyone. I'm just trying to protect them from the crazy drivers. I would much rather they hit me...

Re: Ragger plays hardball

Huh, the CEO of RBC also made sexually suggestive comments to me on multiple occasions during a job interview where he invited me to a bar. Glad I turned that job down.

Edit: oh yea, he also talked about Jesus a lot

"Restaurant" would be a great name.

And is that rendering greatly exaggerating the amount of sidewalk space?
I don't think so, there is a lot of sidewalk space there.

I was told KC Life owns the building and we’re going to be trying for a restaurant in the location. No idea how accurate that information is.

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

The old Uptown Arts Bar has a printed sign up saying that the "Moonlight Cocktail Lounge" will be open after 5 PM on Friday and Saturdays during construction. I will def be checking it out tonight and see if I can learn more about what's going to eventually be there.

Re: Politics

I'm actually kind of curious, what would happen if a city just ignored state law and refused to comply. Would the state start arresting people? Could the city use the police to protect them? This probably wouldn't work in KC since the city doesn't control the police, but interesting thought experime...

Re: Bike Lanes

I think this is a legit complaint though. I cross Armour every day, sometimes in a car, sometimes on a scooter, usually on foot. It's VERY hard to see oncoming traffic at some intersections without having to slowly creep out into the bike lane and sometimes into the traffic lane. Some parking needs ...

Yea a lot of work going on here. You can see the parts on the side of the building that we’re missing brick has metal framing and now insulation installed. Construction fences also around the empty lots to the north as well.

Re: Broadway

Went by the MGE building today and there are two large dumpsters out back and a bunch of workers there, looks like this project is underway.
