Re: “Looking back at the most newsworthy openings and closings of 2012

The first on the list of restaurants to close in 2013...that Vietnamese place off 41st or so that had all the cockroaches and the health dept closed 'em down. Has that place opened up yet? Yikes!

Re: “Looking back at the most newsworthy openings and closings of 2012

The DQ on INdependence Ave was right smack in the heart of crime central, so I'm glad those owners got out with their lives still in tact. You operate a business in Northeast with a wing and a lot of prayers. I know, I owned a Minsky's Pizza there on St. John back in the 1990's and the only reason we were never held up at gunpoint, while all those around me were, was that we fed the criminals. Hey, drugrunners, whores and pimps, and assorted felons love pizza!

Re: “Never-occupied Merriam Village is razed to make way for IKEA

Better Ikea than nothing. Just what the world needs, more low end sales jobs. Again...better than an empty parcel. I bought Ikea furniture in Tempe, AZ for my college kid four years ago. All the furniture is long, long gone and didn't last. But...

Re: “Is the Plaza's flagship burger business done well or, well, done?

I love Blanc burgers and fries. Did notice that traffic has slowed down, but that's typical for the restaurant business with so many new places opening up. I agree with the other poster that The Pitch does cum hard all over itself trying to prop up places right out of the gate, only to dance on its grave years later. Journalists are like those hienas, the laughing ones, that you see documented on NatGeo or Animal Planet. They pick at the carcus and howl to the moon with satisfaction.

Re: “FC Kansas City cements the metro's reputation as a soccer haven

Who's the soccer coach for Sporting? I'd ask 100 random on the street and all 100 would not know. Guaranteed. I could ask 1000 people and 997 would not know. Soccer is for about 10,000 people in this city of 1.5 million, that's about all it will ever attract.

Re: “FC Kansas City cements the metro's reputation as a soccer haven

I know a ton of people in this town...and NOBODY ASKS ABOUT SOCCER. Nada, zilch, never ever had anybody ask me about any soccer match or team. White, black, hispanic, asian...soccer is a niche to a certain white-only, about junior high to high school then its over crowd. Spectators are mostly white, affluent somewhat, age about 19 to 30 types. The few older than that are guys trying to fit in, they really don't give a damn about soccer, hee hee. They're pretenders. I could walk up and down any sidewalk in KC right now and ask a random 100 people to name two KC Sporties...I guarantee that I'd get 91 strong that couldn't name one!

Re: “Tony Dungy will not be coaching the Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs don't need Dungy, that guy got lucky with Manning or he'd never win a thing. Bill P. won't come here either so let that dream go. The Chiefs are in heap big trouble, folks, and everybody knows it. When you run something this size into the ground, you are lucky to find anybody of real substance willing to put their reputation on the line...unless the check is so out of whack silly.
