Re: gomer's - midtown

Wasn't the city working on an updated development code addressing issues like this?  Thought I remember reading something about requirements for street frontage etc for new construction on main streets/intersections to prevent suburban style strip mall lots.  Am I remembering a pipe dream or is ther...

Re: OFFICIAL: Power & Light District

Seems to me like PnL was scaled back.  Isn't there a hotel, condos, and apartments missing?  i know that was phase 2/3 or whatever, but is that not included in the initial numbers?

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

Noticed yesterday that the for lease signs are gone and some sort of work is in progress in the corner space across from Brown & Loe and former River Market Brewery. Any fellow MarketeersTM know what's happening?

Re: Why no breakfast tacos in kansas city?

breakfast taco?  don't know if you mean burrito, but the burrito place in the city market sells a breakfast burrito.  Its just okay...but as far as i can tell KC sorely lacks breakfast burritos considering how many mexican joints it has...Having lived in San Diego I miss having a 24 hour burrito/tac...

Re: Elbow Chocolates and Glace might be adding 2nd locations - Where seem logical

I watched that interview on the local show the other night as well.  Absolutely great. He is very dedicated to this city and his product.  Makes me appreciate him/his business even more.  I'm hoping he puts a Glace in the river market.

At the very least its a step towards educating motorists that bikers belong on the street and that they should be sharing the road...but still a bit weak i suppose

Re: Intercity bus travel fast growing (such as Megabus)

I have used megabus quite a bit between STL and KC.  Also have friends who have used it to chicago and beyond.  Their double decker buses are MUCH more spacious and accommodating than a greyhound buses.  It takes just about the same amount of time as driving yourself (with only a stop in columbia to...

Re: Section 8 Housing

In general, the public housing program is the shorter wait list (4 months to be approved...then a bit longer to actually get house) while the Sec 8 voucher wait list is several years.  At least that is the case in kck

Re: 2010 Chiefs

KC's average attendance this year was 67K.  That would be a legit (not just for tv purposes) sell out every game if they had seattle's stadium.  KC can have 10K empty seats and still have more people at the game than more than half of the leage.  KC had a middle of the pack attendance record (17th) ...

Re: Port Authority Seeks Federal Money to Build Wharf for Barges in West Bottoms

I think barge traffic would be great to watch.  Sitting on the banks of the mississippi in new orleans and watching barge traffic is a great atmoshphere (not smelly, not sure where thats coming from)...especially think it would be well suited in west bottoms.  I always see lots of people stopping on...
