Re: “Tacos, pizza, sandwiches — some of the metro's best lunches are in Kansas City, Kansas

Ok I am so excited to say that Big Grill and more is the best local family owned place in town. It has great BBQ and great home cooked, and grilled foods. This establishment is owned by 5 brothers and sisters with Louisiana roots and they know how to do it right. Besides it's so cute in there you'll love it!

@concerned citizen:

Not that your garbage comment deserves a response, but, uh, no, whoever you're referring to is not my girlfriend.

Re: “Think Big Partners is KC's tech darling. Where'd its money come from?

It seems clear to me that the morals of Mr. Sih have been put into question. I think the appropriate question now should be: what other immoral things has he done since? How much of it is flat out illegal? What don't we know? How deep does the rabbit hole go?

How can we continue letting this man be seen as a pillar of KC entrepreneurship and technology?

Re: “Think Big Partners is KC's tech darling. Where'd its money come from?

If Herb would have mowed the lawn of Tucker who is the kingpin of all the PDL scam, is he guilty by association as well? This article is stupid; Herb didn't do the loans, set the crazy interest rates, etc. He generated and sold leads.

Whats interesting is, isn't the girlfriend of the writer of this story same girl that had a) got fired by the EDC and b) had a huge blowup with Herb in the past??? Seems like a hatchet job.

Re: “Think Big Partners is KC's tech darling. Where'd its money come from?

I agree Herb wasn't the main point of contact but he was ultimately tied to Matt Kirk and dare I mention Daren Fristoe who ran the "HR" department for Clickspeed. Fristoe has been brought up on charges for stealing money from his previous employer. If Herb doesn't want to get a bad wrap he should choose better business partners. I'm sure he didn't have a problem cashing in on the $$$ when things were good at Clickspeed or any of the other ventures. His biggest mistake was letting Matt Kirk run any business. He is the real slime. Throw Fristoe in there as Kirk's henchman and you have quite the duo.

Re: “Think Big Partners is KC's tech darling. Where'd its money come from?

Reading some of these comments above serve as a continual reminder that those who have skin in the game, are usually the fleshpots involved in it. So funny reading this about the yuppie slime balls, then watching the cheerleaders in the media and the office buildings yakkety yak happy thoughts about their horizons. Reminds me of a youthful stripped down version of Brownback's interpretation of Koch libertarian "anarcho-capitalism" crap. Want freedom from wage slavery? Get a pay day loan, start up a small business and PAY NO TAXES! Why hell's bells it's a damn economic miracle! So funny. Good job! The Pitch, free and on the street, one of the last real papers in the place.

Herb was never the main point of contact in Clickspeed's entire existence. He occasionally made an appearance. His focus was on irons in other fires.

Is there anyone doing anything positive for Kansas City that The Pitch will not attack?

I'm opening a local made goods and art gallery at 7th and Minnesota in July. I can't wait to get back to the real food that kck kitchens put out. There's not a concentration of family owned and delicious spots in the entire metro as far as I know. Downtown kck is coming back.

If you haven't tried it yet, Con Sabor Mexico is well worth a visit. family owned and operated, they serve up some great Mexican fare. Everything is fixed fresh daily, made to order, and you receive generous portions for a reasonable price. A good variety on the menu, with specials during the week. Open Tuesday thru Sunday, and on Sunday they add fresh made tamales to the menu.

If you haven't tried it yet, you ought to visit Con Sabor Mexico, a family owned restaurant located at 503 North 6th, ( next door to Big Grill and More,mentioned above). The food is very good, fresh made, and served by a friendly staff (all family members) who ready to accommodate your requests. They are open Tuesday through Saturday and are open until 2:00 p.m. on Sunday at which time they add fresh homemade tamales to the menu. The shrimp cocktail is excellent, one of the best I have tasted.

What Ms. Dickenson fails to mention is she knows multiple people who have held management and executive positions in the PDL industry. It's hard to see her as impartial with professional connections into the industry.

Does anyone else beside me ever notice that where there is a scheme be it payday loans, a transit system to nowhere, hotels built for free for the rich, et al, that Sly is always somehow connected with about 2 degrees of separation?

Technological innovation, if you want to call it that, doesn't come with an ethics manual.

Jake: I agree with all of your suggestions, particularly the Tortilleria San Antonio. And Edwards Original Market & Deli is the best -- http://www.pitch.com/FastPitch/archives/20… -- but it's not really in the downtown loop. But close enough.

Re: “Tacos, pizza, sandwiches — some of the metro's best lunches are in Kansas City, Kansas

You know, being a KCK lifelong resident you get a little beat down sometimes when you hear someone exclaim "Oh you live over THERE?" for the thousandth time. If you respond in any other way other than "YEP!" they take it as some kind of defensive response, as if you do not have the means to live somewhere else, someplace like their generic caucasian and beige neighborhood.

It's these types of articles that remind me why I live here. Thank You.
