Re: “Preservation Market takes on table service, cheaper beer, bigger menu

Beet salad +1. Beers great, too. Ok to drink there, but absent that bottle of Romulan Ale for 10 parsecs, better deals at Gomers

Re: “Preservation Market takes on table service, cheaper beer, bigger menu

One commenter says not a great idea in the first place? The place is packed every time I am in there. It's no frills get your beer from the cooler or try the excellent taps and order your's a no brainer. I love it just the way it is. I say why mess with a good thing leave it counter service, but hey the probably know better how to run it. I am a VERY regular customer and plan to stay that way even with the changes coming up.

Re: “The Flaming Lips are at Crossroads KC on Tuesday

Kliph in the front row. A tear rolls down his cheek during the bridge of "Do You Realize?"
Wayne and Kliph "lock eyes."
Wayne stops the song.
Kliph is waved onto the stage.
They embrace.
Kliph takes the drummer's seat.

End scene.

Re: “Preservation Market takes on table service, cheaper beer, bigger menu

not a great idea to begin with.....getting beer from a cooler like at a C store and then staying there to drink it....I am surprised it took this long...

Cheers to Pope. One of the few Westport chefs/business owners who can actually live up to the hype in quality and spirit.

Re: “Fellow food truck drivers organize a benefit for The Funnel Cake Truck's Michael Bradbury

I can second what HeWouldntHelp said, and one year later, at that. I had a contract with Mike to sell his food at an event I put on and he didn't donate to my charity, per his signed contract.

Re: “Timothy Coppinger, Ted Rowland charged by Federal Trade Commission in payday loans scheme; assets frozen

What they were doing is against the current laws on the books. Payday lenders are no worse than casinos. Don't see many smiles on the faces of those sitting at the slot machines. People can't say they didn't know the cost when they get a payday loan place that is operating legally same as those losing money in the slots. Sucks to be stupid enough to succumb to any of these schemes.

Re: “Did a model slip his junk into the 1975 Sears catalog? You make the call!

I was in elementary school when my classmate brought that very same photo to school. We all found it to be hilarious and laughed like it was 100% real, but even then I suspected it might just be a smudge.

Re: “Is Esmie Evil?

I hope she will recover in years to come, I have to beleive it is what her mother would have wanted for her. I think the drugs were the biggest problem going here. Good luck Esmie.

Re: “Timothy Coppinger, Ted Rowland charged by Federal Trade Commission in payday loans scheme; assets frozen

Guess the screeching of those who defended these shysters on the basis of free market forces and providing a service to poor people who needed quick loans at usury rates doesn't impress the FTC either. Since the politicians who refuse to reign in these crooks with reasonable regulations have failed the public, we can leave it to the Feds to take care of this.

Hopefully these crooks can see how the free market works in Prison when they barter Cigs and candy bars for protection from ass kickings.

Re: “IKEA wasn't the only grand opening today; Walmart replaces old Superfund site in Argentine

Ann Murguia totally freaks out the old guard in KCK because she has the audacity to be aggressive and proactive in helping her constituents instead of standing around waiting for a wink and nod from the cronies.
She is hard nosed and she pisses people off... including me... but she gets things done and she truly cares about her district. When she ran for mayor it scared the hell out of the comfy people at city hall because they knew she would call out their shortcomings and bring change.

Re: “Neal Patterson wants all the public incentives

When Kansas City worked out the horrible deal to build the Sprint Arena and the Power & Light District, we were promised that it was going to earn enough to pay back the bonds every year (it barely makes 30% of that number,) we were promised an anchor tenant at the Sprint Arena (We're still hosting exhibition NHL games to rub salt in that wound) and we were told that Kemper Arena could still operate and generate revenue (but then we awarded AEG the contract to manage both the Sprint Arena and Kemper, and they quickly mothballed Kemper in order to operate in the black at Sprint.)

All the while, UMB and The Kempers ceded much of their property to the city to make that deal happen. Don't get me wrong, UMB got some exclusive stuff out of that deal, but by and large, it was a massive failure on the part of the city to negotiate a better deal for all of us, so the American Royal and Kemper Arena were just as much victims as the tax payers of KC.

Honestly, the Foutch Bros. deal sounds much better to me than the American Royal 5,000 seat Equestrian Center, (Amazon just purchased because apparently watching people play video games attracts more viewers than Breaking Bad or Game Of Thrones ever has) but it would also be a shame to lose a Kansas City tradition like The American Royal and the UMB BBQ competition; especially if the assholes jumped the state line and perpetuated this border war that is killing our region. I know there are many attempting to rebrand KC and shed our identity as a cow town, and would just as soon see the American Royal leave town, but that would be a mistake.

What needs to happen is we need to elect a mayor and/or council that can sit down with Kemper and Patterson like Reagan with Gorbachev in Reykjavik, tell them what the tax payers will accept, cede nothing, and figure out a way to let Foutch Bros. do their thing with Kemper AND keep the American Royal here in KCMO.

That's easier said than done, I'm afraid, but we should settle for nothing less. I'm tired of bending over for the city AND the "philanthropists" in KC. When taxpayers rejected the Bi-State II tax for the Performing Arts Center, Kauffman went ahead and raised the funds to build it themselves. KC's voters out-negotiated the elected leaders in city hall on that deal.

Re: “Pioneers Press attempts a radical experiment in literature and living

"It exists in this total bubble. I couldn't take it seriously after a point." Pretty disparaging comment coming from a guy who left town to continue publishing the same kind of material in the same industry that he left behind in Portland. "You move there, and everything you could possibly want is there, and you play and play and play until you turn into a donkey." It sounds as if you're perpetuating the joke that Portland is where 30-somethings go to retire, which is far from the truth. 30-somethings come here looking for change that never comes and wind up bolstering our already burgeoning suicide rates. Gnade, you are very lucky if you truly were able to leave Portland behind with the false impression it's all fun and games. I admit I'm envious that I've lived my entire life here and haven't once made anything of myself until I put my guitar and my craft beer down and made a concerted effort to keep a job and build a skill set. They say success comes with sacrifice and perhaps the bountiful social scene of Portland was the sacrifice you made to find success in sleepy Norfolk, but do we really deserve your disdain? I can only assume you're pandering to the bigoted East Coast perspective that the West Coast is lazy with the convenient support of our radical image. What's your next move? Allow me to guess; Detroit?

Re: “The mastermind behind Junction City's Obama-hatin' billboard speaks!

Welfare is the Opiate of the people.... Patriots, III Percenters, Oath Keepers, Tea Party and other constitutional conservatives are ready, willing and able to reset the country and restore our liberty.

Brothers and Sisters, stand up now and defend our faith, families and freedom. God through His Scripture tells us to Be Not Afraid and to Love One Another. Be self reliance, responsible, honorable and remember that we must stqand and fight, slavery is not an option. Choose today whom you will serve. When the time comes, be prepared to go out and when we find evil and kill it. Peace, Peter ~

Soccer before sewers just fits with the overall mantra of the current city government. Glitz over practicality.

Re: “Neal Patterson wants all the public incentives

Guggenheim, Mellon, Vanderbuilt, Hall, Bloch... These people of great wealth created jobs and gave back to their communities without holding taxpayers hostage. It used to be called Philanthropy but now is a game of 'halfsies'. However, I imagine if TIF had been around 100 years ago, I'm sure these same families would have utilized them.
