Re: KC's Top Ten Dive Bars

It seems to me that there used to be a lot more little cocktail bars in almost every city when I was a younger man. There just don't seem to be as many in any city anymore.

Re: Office project at 27th & Main

Re: KC's Top Ten Dive Bars

All of those so-called dive bars used to be dive bars before they became hipster bars. I think there are still real dive bars in NE and Independence and probably Gladstone. Hope the hipsters don't find them. There aren't many bars in the Historic Northeast anymore. Askew Inn closed recently for goo...
