It's been another forgettable week for the Missouri Legislature. Rather than waiting to see how Kansas' tax overhaul, panned by bipartisan policy wonks as the worst in the nation, plays out, the Missouri House on Thursday passed a bill that mirrors some of the main tenets of the Sunflower State's tax code.
The bill would reduce the income-tax rate for sole proprietors and businesses structured as S-corporations.
Bean counters in Jefferson City estimate that such a fully implemented tax code would lead to anywhere between $492 million to $629 million in losses to the general fund.
There's a garden tool freecycle (think take-a-penny, leave-a-penny but with garden tools), a cooking demonstration with wild edibles from the Farmhouse's Michael Foust at 11 a.m. and a chance to ask local farmers about what to plant and how to keep it alive.
Don't feel guilty: You're not the only one, by any means, who has procrastinated until the very last minute to make reservations for Sunday brunch for your mother, your wife, your significant other, the woman who is still collecting your court-mandated child-support payments, and all the other lovely people who deserve to be honored on Mother's Day, May 12.
Instead of asking Mom to dress up in her best frock only to take her to the drive-through at Sonic, why not make a reservation - it's not too late! - at a place where she can sit, proudly, wearing the semi-lifelike silk corsage that the kids picked out at the Dollar General. She's worth it.
If you work in an office with Sporting Kansas City fans, you can fully expect them to be in foul moods this morning. Last night, playing the second of three games in a seven-day span, Sporting suffered a humiliating last-minute goal to the Seattle Sounders. The Sounders are the worst team in the Western Conference.
The game was mostly uneventful and tied 0-0 going into stoppage time. Then, in the 94th minute, Seattle defender Djimi Traore scored when a corner kick found him just a couple of feet in front of SKC goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen. Sporting manager Peter Vermes rightly described the play after the game: "It was a monumental mistake on our part. There's nothing else to say." It was also a bit of sweet revenge for the Sounders.
Stephanie Springer's vivid red lipstick is the same shade of red painted on the woodwork inside her new restaurant at 553 Central in Kansas City, Kansas. The unassuming frame building, which was occupied by Sophie's Deli for nearly three decades, has been given a new life this week as Millie's Cafe & Catering. Springer named the business after her late grandmother, Millie Favac Springer - a native Croatian who spent most of her adult life in Strawberry Hill.
Springer will be serving her grandmother's recipes, including povitica and stuffed cabbage rolls, at the little diner, which had a soft opening last night. The restaurant's primary focus will be solid, down-home kinds of dishes like spaghetti and Italian sausage, chicken-fried steak sandwiches and a big selection of burgers, including the Strawberry Hillbilly: a bacon cheeseburger topped with two onion rings and barbecue sauce.
The "Best Looking Sports Pub You've Ever Seen," which features female (and some male) servers in (I know you never would have figured this out on your own) kilts, has set its sights on opening 10 new eateries over the next five years in markets such as Omaha, St. Louis and Kansas City. The closest Tilted Kilt is currently in St. Charles, Missouri. The 10-year-old chain with more than 80 restaurants is based out of Tempe, Arizona.
Maxim is not shy in its praise of Jack Stack, home to "what might be the greatest piece of Kansas City barbecue that will ever be inside your mouth, ever." As with all statements about KC barbecue, that one is ripe for debate.
"I think it's high time to wear the badge and be proud of Kansas City," says Payton Kelly, Boulevard's creative director. "We want someone to have a pleasant drinking experience and think of their hometown."
The first Swagger opened in 2008, and the second location, which shared a menu, opened its doors in April 2012. The Martin City pub had more than 70 taps, building on the serious beer menu and attention to barware that gained the Wornall Road spot an early following. It was open for a little more than eight months.
