Re: Omaha Skyline from Council Bluffs

First of all it's a brand-new Chevy Avalanche truck, you wuss (after all you're avatar is a BUS). Yeah, what kind of pansy rides the bus anyway?  I'll tell you- one who is too much of a wuss to give a giant middle finger to the environment by driving a gas-guzzling, phallus-compensating, true-blue-...

Re: building just south of 17th and Summit.

I'm pretty sure they're pretty wealthy...I've also heard that just a few people own a good portion of property there like KC2B said.  I'm pretty sure the owner of the Blue Bird is the biggest. The current owner of the Blue Bird doesn't own any property, including the restaurant's building.  Its own...

Re: UMKC projects

From my understanding, being a division one school, equal money has to be spent on mens and womens sports, and considering the cost of a football team the school would not be able to afford to spend the same amount on womens sports as well. I could be wrong though. I believe the rule (Title IX) sta...

Re: just how shady is midtown, esp. main and broadway?

I lived on Wyandotte between 39th & 38th for over 4 years.  I never had any problems.  I parked my car on the street and the only thing that happened was when I left my door unlocked once, I got some CDs jacked.  (though a number of cars on that street would get hit by drunks in the middle of the ni...

Re: Take out suggestions

Fiorella's has been there for a month or two replacing KC Masterpiece. Thats definitely a trade up.  KC Masterpiece sauce is bad, but their food is worse. However, I still have a little trouble supporting Fiorella's.  I bartended and served at the Freight House location for a bit.  I did not like t...

Poncho's Man, I miss that place.  The Mexican in New York is crap.

Re: UMKC projects

I'm curious about the status of a some of the projects I heard about when I was attending the school.

Re: wtf is happening to w. 39th?!

This is truly sad.  Rumi and Adis Abbaba were two of my favorite restaurants and were definitely on my list of "must eat" places next time I'm back in town. However, they did replace the last two Mediterranean and Ethiopian places to close down on 39th (Tribal Grill and Blue Nile).  Hopefully we'll ...

Re: building just south of 17th and Summit.

That's a funny turn of phrase.  I am really turned off by the more vocal westside denizens and their petty neighborhood association's position on these matters. I agree. There are just a few people who own a good portion of the Westside.  They insist on keeping the area a quiet, residential neighbo...

And you can get all the knock off designer purses and bootleg DVDs you can handle! Nah, I don't buy any of that crap.  I don't go to any of the stores that are directly on Canal, because they usually just sell that sort of junk.  But in some stores off of Canal, you can find some nice Chinese impor...

all chinatowns smell; it's part of what makes them different. you should absolutely go to brooklyn. it is the most populous borough and is experiencing a make-over (read: hipper, cheaper). it is also home to the brooklyn botanical garden and the new york transit museum. it has become the "real new ...

Re: Can someone comment on this neighborhood for me?

I would agree with the sentiminet to avoid that neighborhood. However, there are some other areas that many people would call "ghetto" but aren't really that bad- such as parts of the Northeast and Midtown.  I lived in one such area for several years- never had any problems and got a nice place for ...

Re: row houses

I know of one row on 34th Terrace, between Main and the foreign language academy. My first apartment was in one of those rows (the one further east).  It was an atrocious remodel with none of the original character.  They walled over the door to mini balcony on my 3rd floor apartment.  It was also ...

Re: Kansas City NHL Articles

There is more money to be made in the United States than Canada.  I just read that the NHL will realign the divisons to set up for expansion of two teams.  If that is the case I say the Pens move to Kansas City and Pittsburgh gets a "new" Penguins in two years.  Sidney Crosby will lead the Kansas C...

Remember.. all newspapers like to predict gloom and doom because it sells papers. The feeling in that meeting might not have been that drastic. Just a thought.

Plus, I don't know of any interstate that is actually a boulevard. I can't imagine the feds converting I-70 into a boulevard.
