Re: “Kansas City needs pie happy hours

I agree. Another really tempting new happy hour: late night reverse happy hour on desserts (maybe 9 - close). The guys usually want bar food and some drinks, but no one ever orders dessert at a bar. I'd rally everyone to a second place just for coffee and desserts if there was some incentive.

Re: “The West Bottoms might get...happier

I've been waiting for more news about this space. I drove past a few weeks ago and the building was definitely renovated. The outside has been painted ketchup red with mustard yellow accents. Any updates on what will be opening here and when?

Re: “KC Cake Pops: Forget cupcakes, give your loved ones cake on a stick

Bakerella is the queen of cake pops. They are magnificent little edible sculptures on a stick (with directions for how to make them - if you are crazy enough to).

Re: “The top five foods missing from downtown Kansas City

Yep, Thai food. Biggest missing food group. Also, a good jewish deli (which is missing from all of Kansas City).

Re: “Sunday breakfast: not too early, not a chain

YJ's snack bar in the Crossroads serves a great breakfast on the weekends. They always have eggs, hash browns, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and either a southern or mexican breakfast platter (I think depending on the day - probably mexican on Sunday) and everything is $4 - $6. But, either you will like the experience or hate it - everything is done a bit differently there. I suggest try it a few times because the first time I felt completely like an outsider and almost wrote the place off, I live near by and love it now.

Also maybe Dagwoods on SW Boulevard, or Jerry's Woodsweather in the W. Bottoms? They they open Sunday?

Re: “Free Wi-Fi at U.S. Starbucks

I try to avoid chain restaurants in general, but the free wi-fi will definitely make Starbucks more attractive. I like the location and space of the Starbucks on the Plaza, almost as much as The Filling Station on McGee.

Next, they need to make more stores open late and 24 hours. In Sarasota, I lived right near a big Starbucks that was open 24/7 and also did one free refill on any drink in a "for here" cup. That place was packed (sometimes I couldn't get a table) after midnight almost every night of the week. In fact, it was never slow any time of day, and it was not even in a shopping district.

The only coffee shop open 24 hours in KC is YJ's, which doesn't have wireless, so I never work there.

Re: “Tipping on to go orders

"It's higher quality, better ingredients, expected to be presented in a completely different manner than fast food."

While this is true, in my opinion I've already paid for those attributes when I dish out the "$12 to maybe $24" for the food. I only tip for take out if the person went above and beyond in some way, such as if the order I placed was especially large or complicated.

As for tipping the hostess when ordering from them in a sit down restaurant: Nicer restaurants already tend to pay a bit higher hourly wage for this position, so you are already being paid for your extra attention to detail, unlike waiter and waitresses. That's my take.
