The verdict came as a shock to many in Kansas City's restaurant community. Anderson, who took over the operation of the original Hereford House restaurant in 1987 (and went on to open satellite venues around the metro over the last two decades), was a popular and respected businessman.
Gerrick D. Kennedy of the Los Angeles Times recently broke down Madonna’s MDNA tour by the numbers. Among his findings: 89 shows in 28 countries (18 — including the show in KC — are places where Madonna has never performed), 90 speakers hung on stage, 700 pieces of wardrobe required for all of the onstage performers, 374 tons of pure stage, and even 16 different kinds of salad dressing required by the crew from craft services. This is some high-maintenance shit.
Obviously, with high-maintenance shit come high-dollar tickets. And high-dollar tickets tend to bring out, shall we say, a more discerning crowd. In the case of Madonna’s show at the Sprint Center last night, the crowd skewed older. Not many spring chickens in the house. They flocked in early, then clogged up the booze lines and complained about the late set time (10:30 p.m.).
The new location, across Mission Road from Oklahoma Joe's, will serve street-style tacos with smoked and braised meats like barbacoa, cochinita pibili and birria. The taqueria will have a walk-up window for those who need a mobile taco fix (or perhaps something to pass the time while waiting in the parking lot at Oklahoma Joe's) and picnic- and patio-table seating outdoors. A rendering of the new space is after the jump.
In June, Bough sent a copy of the binder to the Federal Election Commission. He claims that its contents document a history of Turk’s violating election law in his current and his 2010 campaigns to unseat Emanuel Cleaver II.
“There can be no doubt that I am an enormous fan of Congressman Cleaver,” Bough tells The Pitch. So far, Bough has donated $3,000 to Cleaver’s 2012 campaign. “I’ve had events at my home. I’m often listed as one of his donors. Every time I make a donation, he has to list it,” he says. “And that’s my same gripe against Turk. For years, he just slanders a wonderful congressman, and he doesn’t play by the rules.”
Pointing to his binder, with its 28 exhibits, color photos and screen captures, Bough adds, “The reason I put this together is because the way Mr. Turk runs his campaigns is not the way we should do things.”
A few more Halloween-day deals after the jump.

The KCK startup creates online menus, ordering systems and websites for restaurants. The 10-person business began as a conversation three years ago. Desai and Hoang Nguyen were sitting in the dining room of what would become Menufy’s first customer: Stix in the Legends. Nguyen, Stix’s general manager, had been tasked with developing and launching a website for the Asian-fusion restaurant.
“We started this thinking about Stix,” says Desai, who remained the restaurant’s senior manager until last year. “But we quickly realized we could think broader, and this template would work for other restaurants.”

A man with short-cropped hair leaned over the back of the bench in the public seating section of courtroom 8-D of the Charles Evans Whittaker U.S. Courthouse and whispered to the man in the seat in front of him: "I can't help it. Every time I look at Rod Anderson, I think of Rodney Dangerfield."on trial with co-defendants Vincent Pisciotta and Mark Sorrentino — would have cringed if he had heard this. This last week has probably been the least funny period in his 59 years. The former high-profile public face of the Hereford House restaurants, Anderson has gained weight and looks a decade older since he was first charged with felony fraud, conspiracy and arson. The prosecution alleges that Anderson, Pisciotta and Sorrentino planned and executed the arson that destroyed the original Hereford House restaurant, at 2 East 20th Street, in the early morning hours of October 20, 2008.
Today, the defense attorneys for Anderson, Pisciotta and Sorrentino presented their closing arguments to the jury, lambasting the case against their clients presented by the team of U.S. government attorneys, including Jess Michaelson and Paul Becker. Pettlon said the government's charges against Anderson, Pisciotta and Sorrentino was "a case about innuendo."
Last month, the Royals and the Legends announced a new player development deal that will run through 2016. The Legends had been affiliated with the Houston Astros since their inaugural year in 2001.

Their 2013 season begins on Monday, April 8. So start growing those lip hairs, Royals fans.
