Re: We need a new airport!!!

20 lines is a nice deal! Any backups will not be for lack of capability, so I hope they keep them staffed to keep the average wait down. I arrived around 20 minutes before boarding for my Southwest flight a few weeks ago with an A boarding pass and just jumped into line in the middle of the B boardi...

Re: Church of the Resurrection Downtown Campus

I'll take back some of my criticism and say I'm happy to have more diversity in types of businesses and lifestyle opportunities downtown. I'm glad the glass-enclosed cross is not there, but my earlier description of 1990s Ultra-Suburbo Police HQ isn't far off. It could be way worse, but our downtown...

Re: Why Can't the West Bottoms Be Redeveloped....?

I forgot to add that I had a very terrific steak at the new Golden Ox on their official opening night. That said, I've not been to many other places in contention for best steak in KC (other than my own home). Steak is generally not something I set out to order, but I would definitely go back to the...

Re: Why Can't the West Bottoms Be Redeveloped....?

Golden Ox apparently reopens this Friday (June 8). Amazing, I thought this idea was dead, as I hadn't heard anything for what seems like years. Best of luck to them, although I feel like their marketing could have been a little better. I don't know a ton, but from what I've heard through the grapev...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

There is a "last word syndrome" that happens on the forum that causes people to continuously repeat themselves because they feel if they don't get the last word in they somehow haven't gotten their point across. Totally agree about "last word syndrome." I've never had that problem, though. "Last wo...

Re: New Mizzou Endzone Project

Do people who donate to stadiums like this get a tax write off? It seems giving to a sports team shouldn’t get a break for donors. I could be wrong, but I think it depends on if you get a benefit from the donation. It used to be that these donations were 80% deductible if you receive priority seati...

Re: 13th and Grand tower

Is there vacancy at One KC Place? KCP&L's current digs are sufficient if they can add a few more floors, but I worry that a desire for more elbow room will inevitably result in a move to the burbs and/or a request for a tax deal. They would be a candidate for a single purpose building/campus in a ne...

Re: Poll/Guide: Get on the Bus with Your Phone - Try It Free

I'll only be excited about the scooters if there is a well-run program that picks them up frequently. It is easier to place the scooters neatly out of the way than bikes, but I have too little faith in humanity to assume people will care about that. Fortunately, they are easier to scoop up and reloc...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Not that it isn't still the case, but I'd imagine most folks flying the return will be gone longer than just a few days. Would expect the return to have fewer sold seats in the early goings anyhow.

Re: Electric Park Neighborhood (East Bottoms)

It's got a similar problem to a lot of the stores in the City Market proper. The facilities are just hard to keep clean-looking and are outdated. The meat is not presented in an organized way, and there is a different layout every week. Everything about the place is haphazard, and even if it is grea...

Re: Electric Park Neighborhood (East Bottoms)

I'd love to see them in the City Market. They would do very very well there. Otherwise, I feel like they are susceptible to being forgotten or overtaken by some other concept if they don't plant themselves in a slightly better place. It is a tad different, but I feel like Broadway Butcher took a bit...
