Re: “Four Seasons Pizza & Pasta: Real Italians making real pizza

I like this place. Everything I've tried has been good, particularly the pizza - they sell it by the slice if you need a quick lunch. It's in a cursed location that has housed many a restaurant over the years, but I hope that they're doing well.

Re: “Who makes a terrific taco in Kansas City?

Tacos El Matador on Merriam Lane for street tacos. I like Fric n Frac on Saturday for mom tacos.

Re: “Does the city need a new, billion-dollar Kansas City International?

Not everyone thinks KCI functions all that well for passengers. It only seems that way because they are the ones fighting the potential for change, and their voices are therefore loudest at the moment. I fly ~ 25 times a year, and KCI is barely adequate. It's definitely not some jewel worth preserving.

It seems those who complain compare their experience at KCI to some mega-airport like LaGuardia, Ohare, or Atlanta. Those are ridiculous comparisons. Most airports that handle about as much traffic as ours are just as easy--if not easier--to navigate with one central terminal. They all have parking at various price levels, from economy to terminal garages, and those garages are not usually full as KCI's Terminal B garage frequently is. Most of them have short walks from ticket counter to security to the gate.

What they also have are places beyond security to get a decent cup of coffee and adequate restroom facilities. KCI does not, and I dare you to spend a significant delay beyond security in Terminal B and not get frustrated. Other airports also have flexibility for carriers to add or subtract service; KCI does not.

Is a ten-figure project the only answer? Maybe not, but the status quo isn't a valid solution either.

Re: “What pizza places should Fat City be visiting?

I'd encourage you to try a slice or two of sausage pizza at KCK's Italian Delight at 82nd and State. It's superior to the one in Mission, which has a similar menu but is run by different people.

Re: “This is what the long-desired Merriam Ikea will look like

Have they released any plans for new traffic patterns? I can't imagine they'll leave both the Johnson Drive and Shawnee Mission Parkway exits as-is.

Re: “How KCI could go from three terminals to one terminal in four years

You commenters do realize that this plan keeps most of the infrastructure the same and consolidates everything into one terminal, right? You will still have easy highway access. The gates will be closer together. Your parking will still be right next to the terminal. There will no longer be two ghost terminals (like A&C are now) and one shitshow with insufficient parking (B). And god forbid people be able to change planes without exiting/reentering security (granted, this is less prevalent now that they've consolidated more gates at each security checkpoint).
KCI is convenient for Kansas Citians, as long as they're not flying at a peak hour on Southwest or Delta. For everyone else, especially those visiting our city, it's lousy.

Re: “Die Antwoord got freeky at Liberty Hall last night

These are the same thoughts I had about the show. It was great spectacle & energy that effectively sold the big dumb silly music. Die Antwoord is an entertaining, brilliantly executed gimmick that is fun for about an hour. It's no coincidence that they fit their entire set (including two 1-song encores) into that time frame.
