Great little article. I always wondered about this place. Wish you could have included a picture of the outside.

Re: “KCUR's restaurant critics have a last supper in the old format

Love the current format, will probably like the new one even more. Bring it on. Regarding the "diversity" comment, I have to say I couldn't care less who is on the show, as long as they are informative and entertaining. I wouldn't even notice if they were all black, Indian, Roma, Icelandic, or whatever. Bring them on, too. But do we have to make everything a venue for diversity, which I suspect here is a plea for some quota for everything? I hope I am over-reading the anonymous post.

Re: “The effects of Kansas City Actors Theatre on Paul Zindel's Marigolds

Excellent review! I saw this play last night and it affected me deeply. Here are comments I sent to some friends which echo the insights expressed in this review:

The thing about this play is that it is horribly depressing yet fascinating. The single mother of two daughters considers herself a crazy failure (true!) and is very abusive to them, going so far as to forbid her daughter whose refuge is school & science from going to school on some days and deliberately killing their pet rabbit. There is a lot of yelling. Yet it it is so impressive (won a Pulitzer prize) simply because it is so true to this underside of regular life. While watching it I thought what am I doing listening to this crazy nonsense yet I woke up this morning very rejuvenated by the uncensored jolt of reality.

Plus the acting was so good and the actors LOOKED so much their parts, the mother slouching around sloppily with her half-colored hair scraggly in old house dresses and bathrobes. The science-minded daughter was plain and retreating and the sister a loud-mouthed shrew. What a bunch of characters. Yet the science daughter's belief in a better future through science blew through all the crap. (The name of the play has to do with a science experiment in which she is growing irradiated marigold seeds and studying the mutations - she wins first prize which sets up a big conflict for the mother's persona. The mother ends up not going to the competition but staying home and killing the rabbit as a way of punishing everyone for her failures..).

An amazing example of the ways the director downplays the family's disfunction and present it in the light of this family's "normal" is the lack of reaction, in the end, on the part of the daughters to the rabbit's death. As if the mother is simply a fact that is there and cannot be changed.

No wonder this play is just about sold out, as I found out when I looked into going to see it again and bringing another friend into its atomic pattern.

Re: “The new Kansas City streetcar logo looks like a backyard electric smoker

Like I said yesterday, the Streetcar Authority got the logo all wrong. It doesn't look anything like a white elephant, an albatross, or a dead horse.

Re: “Anthony Bruno's family records Kansas City police officers tearing down memorial ribbons (video)

Karen Dillon has zero journalistic integrity. I'm saddened but not surprised.

People die every minute for no good reason--often, no reason at all. Here, however, based on the video and a reasonable review of the evidence, it seems that one man shot and killed another because the shooter had to. Self defense is likely the most justifiable reason to kill.

I love the current line up! But that being said. I like stories from farms. What ever as long as you keep us updated about current restaurants, openings, closings and review are a must!

Re: “Best Local Theater Company

The mystery train consistently provides, fun, a mystery challenge, laughs and great dining. This is an evening well spent and everyone, including the guests get into the evening with enthusiasm.

Re: “Best Performing Arts Group

I believe the Mystery Train is one fantastic evening of fun, a mystery challenge, and laughs. I am never disappointed with the actors or the material. The dinner is always great and this makes the entire evening a big success.

Hopefully, the new format offer a more racially diverse roundtable of foodies. :)

His voice is rare, amazing, and one of my favorite things about this incredible band. Here's hoping they'll play their 'Moonage Daydream' cover for me tonight.

Disappointing to hear this. The current show is great, and Charles is a great host. Gina is not a great host, why mess with something that is working?
