Re: “Streetside: New jazz spot the Green Lady Lounge arrives in the Crossroads

Re: “Streetside: New jazz spot the Green Lady Lounge arrives in the Crossroads

"Contributing to the block's overall sleaziness, an underground sex club reportedly operated, until recently, in the alley behind Balanca's."

Really? There was a space that rented was out to different alternative lifestyle groups, but I'm unaware of a "sex club" anywhere in the vicinity. Other than that, I can't disagree with much else you say about Balanca's.

Good luck to Mr. Scott; this town can use a laid back jazz lounge.

Good luck also to Lori; let's hope running a neighborhood bar will be a lot less stressful than running Balanca's.

Re: “Streetside: A midtown meltdown with Kool Keith

Totally agree, this was definitely one of the most bizarre shows I've ever seen.

Kool Keith is a legend, trolling the shit out of lame ass hipsters in Westport.

Re: “Streetside: Curtains for the News Room and Outabounds on Broadway; Cooper's Hawk Winery debuts

The Newsroom was actually at its shadiest in the late 90s early 2000s. There used to be a lot of Mexican coke/meth dealers that frequented the place then. I heard they cleaned up the place in the mid 2000s. I personally havent been there in about 10 or 11 years.

Re: “Streetside: An Election Night party with our local Republicans

@cubs87 - The article is rather straightforward, so perhaps read less and you will feel better. Also, learn to type.

Hey! There are three of us now! Power to the people!

I understand the tone of this article. Its gonna catch shit, but I enjoyed it. I had to un-block Fox News at home just to soak it all in. I really liked the tour of the back of the Fox News facilities when Rove disputed the Ohio call.

This article alone, makes me less weary of having moved here. I thought I was surrounded by right wing religious freaks. Sadly, I am...since I live in leawood.

Re: “Streetside: A monster night in the West Bottoms

The really passionate people for halloween I have found out end up going above and beyond making their own costumes working up to a year in advance on it. It beats the typical doctor, zombie, and other typical costumes that everybody wears.

Re: “Streetside: Suiting up for an evening at Garment House, a new private club

My immediate thought when reading about this concept and relating back to the establishments who have tried the membership/VIP/"Name On The List" bullshit, which turned out to mean that if you where 21 cute and blonde, you could skip ahead of the line to get in. Leaving those who had money to spend outside. Oh and the men who where running these places would also let their friends in too, who where ultimately of the douche bag variety! Funny how none of those places are still in business. I'd be careful or your sure to face effeminate failure...

Re: “Valero Days: Remembering downtown's nastiest gas station

I loved the Valero because it was a haven of diversity. What a better place to confront our prejudices head on. You called it "a magnet for degenerates." What exactly does that mean? You are a writer for the Pitch and I am assuming college educated. Obviously you are not a degenerate. Why place yourself above the clientele of Valero. I always found the Valero a great place of learning and urban immersion. We should all be so lucky to have a place like this to be able to go to. I feel bad for the isolated suburbanites who don't have a clue about diversity... and I don't mean just racial, but socio-economic.

Re: “Valero Days: Remembering downtown's nastiest gas station

I'll miss the Valero. I've lived downtown for a few years now, and am not ashamed to say that I've frequented it many a times. The lady-cashiers were always very nice and sweet, let my friends and I bring in our dogs, gave us food on loan or for free when times were hard, and never hesitated to make simple talk. Valero was always there for us when we made our late night trek for beer and snacks. I considered myself a patron, even if it was filled with drunks and vagrants and a thick cloud of grease. In Kansas City, you take the good with the bad.

Re: “Valero Days: Remembering downtown's nastiest gas station

So many great names to call this place, and now it's gone!

So far I've heard:

The Grab and Stab
The Crack Station
The Murder Mart

Anyone else got one?

Re: “Valero Days: Remembering downtown's nastiest gas station

Anyone who doesn't appreciate this article either didn't live in the neighborhood or has never hung out in the crossroads long enough to need beer after Cellar Rat is closed. This place was suuuper shady, but amazingly enough had a pretty good selection of craft beer. Plus! For the longest time they screwed up their beer pricing in the system when they rang it up. I always had to correct them because the sticker price was different than what rang up. Because of this, for the last like 3 years I've only paid $6.99 for every six pack I ever bought. I loved that place! It was so delightfully shitty. I also...can not wait for the idea of a gas station that actually sells gas. Bring on the new Phillips!
