Re: Tom Colicchio-involved "Food Hall" to Mission Mall site?

Sounds kind of ambitious for the site and the demos. I’d probably at least check it out. Will it be like that awful Eat-a-ly place in Chicago, a place I feel pretty much sums up what half of Chicago has become.

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

Also, we should stop naming streets after the full names of people. Street names should be one or two words max. If you want to use the full name, fine, just have a Martin Street, Luther Avenue and King Boulevard, rather than one lengthy street name. Co-sign. Full name streets are almost as lame as...

this site has a LOOOONNNGG history of hosting some very plugged in people....glad you are joining us now.

Re: Three Light

I still think people just can't get past the name. As stupid as that may sound. The name "Kansas" City just comes with too many stereotypes built in that are just extremely difficult to overcome. Oh, bullshit. Denver had an awful reputation as a smoggy, dusty, run-down shithole. Portland had a repu...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Saw DeJanes on KSHB last night - describing her SmartKC as leading the contingent of Westport businesses against the streetcar because people would have to walk .4 miles from the stop to Westport, but the businesses still have to pay the extra tax. This may be the dumbest argument I have heard in a...

I don’t know. Seems pretty predictable. Businesses don’t want to pay more taxes...sorry, assessments. Big surprise. I think they’re penny wise and pound foolish, but I also don’t own a bar, or a business, and if I did, I sure as fuck wouldn’t run it like Bill Nigro, who’s about as big a turd as you ...

Yeah, the sign is tacky and lame. I don’t know how anyone would argue otherwise. It also actually seems as or more authentic to me than pretending the pop culture of the past matters to anyone here or that it should.

Re: 50s/Main development

There are some new docs in the KCMO Development tracker for a 5 story, 151 room hotel on about half of the large parking lot NW of 50th and Main. At least, I'm assuming it is a hotel. I don't see that explicitly stated in the docs and I don't see any indication of the flag. Docs: http://maps.kcmo.o...

Re: Whole Foods mixed-use project @ 51/Oak

I very rarely eat farmed meat with the exception of fish, and haven’t for years. When I do it’s almost always from a butcher shop. I doubt that changes. But I anticipate buying most of my groceries from this Whole Foods after it opens. I’m thrilled to have an alternative to the abysmal Westport sunf...
