Uh-oh, Kansas City Live isn't happy with the so-called dress-code compromise. I just got this e-mail.
The rest of the e-mail urges me to contact the mayor and the City Council and tell them that "I am against restricting the Kansas City Power & Light District dress code and I support the businesses' rights to set standards." It was in all caps. I'll spare you. The e-mail also encourages me to call 311 and ask for the City Council so I can "tell them to save our downtown by voting against ordinance #090108."
Uh, save our downtown? Isn't that just a little bit dramatic?
It's the second e-mail that I've received this week. The first was from Barry Pointer, the general manager of Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge.
Pointer claims the dress code ordinance "violates constitutional
rights" of the P&L businesses and "denies private businesses the
right to run their own business."
This is an urgent matter because it could possibly go to vote this Thursday, April 2nd. If passed it will no doubt affect the safety and livelihood of hundreds of employees and millions of visitors as well as hundreds of business partners.
