Re: “Has Haus left the building?

Every soon-to-be-closed restaurant does this. First, they pretend like nothing's wrong. Then, they start turning off lights and locking doors. Sometimes there will be a hand-scrawled piece of paper on the door(s) about problems with water, plumbing, electricity, or computer systems, "be back soon." Maybe they're "closed for remodeling" (as this poster looks begrudgingly at Sosa's/Stella's). But then, it gets to this point. Rebranding? Seriously? Why don't they just come out and SAY IT!! "We are shutting down permanently." It would cut down on the rumors and speculation. We joke about this all the time; nobody ever wants to admit they're closing, so they make up excuses. It's just weird, and doesn't seem to happen in other businesses nearly as often, only restaurants.

Re: “Simply Breakfast has simply vanished

Our experience was similar. It became known as "simply awful" in our world. Uninspired. One shot and we were done.

Re: “Marrakech Cafe finally succumbs to mothballs, looking for new location

I'm so glad he's not giving up. He had a wonderful restaurant and good food - just an unfortunate stench from day one. We look forward to the return of Marrakech in a non-stinky location!

Re: “Jabulani Leffall says he's not in hiding and won't talk about on-air resignation from KCUR

I throw the BS flag on this one! Seriously, you don't just pull this crap on-air and then hide under the guise of "I'm not talking about it." What happened? People actually are going to let him get away with this type of shenanigans and not reasonably want to know what's behind his actions? He has completely lost any credibility he may have had.

Re: “Livestrong & Sporting KC ready to end naming-rights deal

My translation of the Sporting KC / LiveStrong Foundation naming rights conversation, as told through the mouths of 5-year-olds:

SKC: "You're ugly. You used to be pretty."
LS: "Yeah? Give me some money."
SKC: "Here's a penny."
LS: "You owe me a quarter!"
SKC: "DO NOT!"
LS: "DO TOO!"
SKC: "I'm going to go play with my friends. You're not invited."
LS: "Fine! You still owe me money."
SKC: "I don't like you. You're not my friend any more."
LS: "I'm gonna find a better friend."
