This.

Personally, I really don't like Westport Flea Market. Their food is so-so. I would rather have a local burger at Record Bar.

Re: Fatty McFatterson! Kansas Citians are FAT!

Color me surprised that the usual suspects on this forum point towards suburbanites and 'the poor' being the source of the issue. Just because your standard fair may be boutique-type restaurants and authentic ethnic cuisine doesn't make it any less fattening than Applebees. I've met several of you a...

Re: FUN POLL! Are you going to the Plaza *this* weekend?

I typically ride my motorcycle thru the Plaza on Saturdays. I'd be interested in seeing how everything shakes out.

Re: Plaza riot?

i hope it's been clear that i find the plaza "riot" to be an extremely unfortunate, scary, and, yes, appalling episode.  while i may snicker at the plaza, it's our biggest attraction in the urban core and, as everyone has stated repeatedly, "perception is reality" and this could cause the merchants...

Take this with a grain of salt, but this is reputedly a public Facebook post of one of the  stupidshits that were down on the Plaza - http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fprofile.php%3Fv%3Dwall%26story_fbid%3D113048175389226%26id%3D1299720170&h=73ce429162e74f73a4deb915c668...

Re: Plaza riot?

but the whole Cool Urban Guy shtick is tired and played out. If you were entertaining out of towners or people from the burbs who never go into the city and this happened, would you have treated them to some pseudo-intellectual rationalization or have been embarrassed and appalled? Unfortunately, i...

Re: Plaza riot?

Not saying that...just that one of the great things about the plaza is that of the movies I've seen...they are not crawling with teens...black or white. Wouldn't want to see a movie at Town Center either because of annoying white teenagers....wouldn't want to see a movie at Ward Parkway because of ...

Re: Plaza riot?

it's tough, because there is a fine line between lawful conduct (teens walking around, even in huge groups, is legal) and a mob scene.  indeed, it sounds like the teens escalated when the cops started cracking down.  interesting that there's no word from cinemark yet.  they should put the age restr...

Re: Plaza riot?

A cursory search of Google News for "robber rode bike" says otherwise. Strawman.  :shock: (edit - specifically, the bicyclists that gather once a month in KC) On topic, the gatherings of teenagers on the Plaza, while inherently fine, is becoming dangerous. This sort of behavior is uncharacteristic ...

Re: 80th & Holmes/Tower Park Area?

I live at 7415 Holmes (75th and Holmes). Great neighborhood all around, if you avoid the Fast Stop. A lot of "transient" traffic there during late hours, but they've finally hired an off-duty KCPD cop to sit in the parking lot on the weekends. 8)

It's great sushi, it's half price on Saturday afternoons and Monday nites and you don't have to deal with d-bag patrons.

I ride a (heavily) modded 2001 X1 Buell Lightning. You've probably seen, or heard, me around town - the front fairing has a Decepticon logo on it. 8)

Re: Is KC ever going to get away from being such a violent city?

No, she's alive.    Apparently she was hit "low in the body".   Almost sounds like someone was pissed at her and wanted to inflict pain but not pissed enough to kill her.   Because from how it sounds, if he wanted her dead he could have done so easily. Actually, this is a friend of mine. The man tr...
