Title: Things in Wichita that don't suck
Post by: felix rex on June 15, 2011, 10:37:13 AM
So, I'm probably going to get roped into staying with my in-laws in Wichita for a week or so. I need some ideas for places to eat or otherwise indulge myself that don't totally suck.

FYI: I know VERY LITTLE about Wichita other than movie theaters and a few (mostly Arabic/French) restaurants. Are there things to do during the day while my wife is shopping at the crappy mall other than listening to my father-in-law yell at Al Jazeera?

Spangles. Exploration Place. Zoo. See if there is a car show at Century II. That's about it.

Correction, my response is to the best things to do in Wichita. Not things that do not suck.

Please give me the name of the Arabic restaurant (if it is good)

My wife's family likes N+J's (I think largely because they know the owners). There's also a French bakery place in a really odd location on Harry St (Bagatelle, I think) that makes great manooshi. La Galete is mostly French, but it's owned by a Lebanese family. I'm not sure what's on the menu, but I know they make great fatoush, tabouli, kibbe, hummus, etc in the back at least. The same family owns Pita and Panini (used to be Yuca Bistro) and TJ's, incidentally.

There's at least one more place. I'll ask my wife for the name. (and technically, spangles is a lebanese restaurant...)

Try a beef and a zaatar manooshi when you're there (the cheese is good, but is super greasy).

My brother-in-law also insists on Texas Roadhouse (which really isn't that bad) and some tiny place called the Fish Market or something. My older, godfather-esque brother-in-law likes to rent out his own section at the Olive Tree for brunch once a week (this was actually pretty good; plus he looks exactly like Andy Garcia and actually wore a tracksuit to the restaurant, which was outstanding).

My wife and her youngest sister used to work at the Hilton and always drag us to the Sunday seafood buffet (crab legs! crepes!). The oldest sister is the one that owns the restaurant, so she hardly ever eats out and insists that we eat at her place (which is phenomenal; she makes homemade baklava that just melts in your mouth).

Had some good sushi in an area near old town(i think), I think it was in a place called the square, or something.  It was in a strip mall square with fountain and crap near.  Near a movie theater or something.

Anyway, it was good.

The sushi is at Hana and it's not in a goddamn strip mall.  It's a square with shops and pretty good bars and restaurants in Old Town.  In the same square is a wine and tappas bar that I like a lot called Oeno.  Cafe Moderne is also in the same square and I love it.  OK_Cat talks crap on Wichita because he hasn't been told where the good smelling elites go.  When he gasses up the camino and comes to town he hangs out at Fat Tony's and Wichita Wild games with the rest of his mullet wearing, casino loving, MMA watching, toothless Okie hillbilly buddies.

Also Fish Market isn't my thing but everyone who has eaten there loves it.

Legends has a surprisingly good prime rib buffet on Friday or Saturday night, can never remember which one.  Fish Market is damn tasty.  Olive Tree closed like a year ago or so.

Same owner.  New chef (or maybe A chef).  They jacked with the food which used to be pretty good for bar food.  There are still some good options but it is not as good as it used to be across the board.  The service always sucked but was tolerable with the food/atmosphere.  Now they are getting ready to jack with the bar setup and the menu again.

you guys should totally hit up rock road, bro!  ROCK effING ROAD, BRO!

My townie nieces sound exactly like this. OMG did you know we got a PF Chang RIGHT NEXT TO ABUELO'S ON THE WATER OMG BRICKS AND FOUNTAINS!
Yep.  Every time we visit the sis-in-law, have to go to either one of those places. :( They suck.

My brother-in-law also insists on Texas Roadhouse (which really isn't that bad) and some tiny place called the Fish Market or something. My older, godfather-esque brother-in-law likes to rent out his own section at the Olive Tree for brunch once a week (this was actually pretty good; plus he looks exactly like Andy Garcia and actually wore a tracksuit to the restaurant, which was outstanding).

My wife and her youngest sister used to work at the Hilton and always drag us to the Sunday seafood buffet (crab legs! crepes!). The oldest sister is the one that owns the restaurant, so she hardly ever eats out and insists that we eat at her place (which is phenomenal; she makes homemade baklava that just melts in your mouth).

"Hey guys. Felix Rex here. I think ill start a thread asking for things to do in wichita so that I can eventually post about how I know more about wichita and places to eat there and stuff to do and not do there than everybody on this board combined."

I mean, dear lord. What an bad person.

"Hey guys. Rick Daris here. I know a ton of great things to see and do in Wichita. And by "a ton" I mean less than you could learn in a weekend staying with foreign in-laws who don't like to leave the house."

I mean, do you at least know a good shoe store to buy specialized shoes for your duck feet?

P.S. How was Bethesda?  :lol:

Fantasea was epic.  It was the greater Wichita area version of Oceans of Fun when your parents were too lazy to haul you all the way from Winfield to KC.   My fave were those three slides that started at the top of a big hill.  Right after starting down one of them, my slide mat would "accidentally" slip from underneath me and I would go the rest of the way down headfirst on my belly at breakneck speeds, then get yelled at by one of the lifeguards at the bottom    :lol:

Just downtown and the airport, and neither signal is strong or reliable.  The downtown 4G signal is either at Century II/Hyatt or LD Stadium.  It doesn't pick up in Old Town & when I was at Old Mill today I had a very weak 4G signal.  The signal at the airport is slightly stronger (I live about 2 miles SE of the airport and can get a faint signal at times) but is much less reliable.

I'm sure the Sprint press release telling us we'll get 4G LTE in the 2nd quarter of 2013 is just a few weeks away, I predict we'll actually have legit 4G sometime around 2016.

You could always grab a quick bite to eat at Willie C's before heading out to see the Wings play.  The the next day you could take the whole fam over to Fantasea.

Losing the Wings, Fantasea and Willie C's was a huge blow to the city.  Still hasn't recovered.  It's possible that it never will.

Just another night in Old Town:

Quote
Wichita police arrested three people in Old Town on Sunday in an incident that began when a man threw an inflatable penis at an officer's horse.

Officers were patrolling Old Town on horseback at about 1:20 a.m. when they came across a large group of women in their early- to mid-20s who had been celebrating at a bachelorette party, police said.

Also in the group was a 24-year-old man, a brother to one of the women at the party. He was carrying a 5-foot-long inflatable penis, police said.

"While he was joking around with this toy, he launched this large toy toward one of our officers, who was on horseback," police spokesman Gordon Bassham said.

The toy struck the officer's horse, causing the horse to get spooked, he said.

Police arrested the man, of Eastborough, on suspicion of battery of a law enforcement officer, in this case, the horse.

A woman, upset at the arrest, grabbed the arresting officer's arm, police said. She too was arrested.

While the crowd was being dispersed, another woman in the party was arrested when she struck a horse's head, police said. The horse stepped on the foot of that woman, who was treated on the scene, then taken to jail.

The tv show McCloud 1970-77 about a small timey Marshall transplanted to NYC had Marshall Sam McCloud riding all crazy ass around NYC.He killed a lot of people iirc and had mad horse riding skills and not once do I remember anyone even getting close enough to assault his horse.I think big city horse cops these days lack mad horse riding skills and as a result can`t keep their horses out of harms way and citizens end up paying the price.

If a horse steps on your foot, you should legally be allowed to punch it right in the face IMO. Or whack it with a 5-foot inflatable penis (btw, I love that someone apparently measured the penis like it was in a lineup standing in front of one of those walls with the heights marked and someones like "oh yeah thats him the five-footer over there." Or, that they asked a witness to estimate: "how long would you say the penis was, mam?" "well, I didn't get a very good look. It was dark you know, and we'd all been drinking. But I'd say at least five feet.")

Also, judging by the irrational police response, it was obviously an ethnic penis.

Maybe the rice doesn't get cooked as well when you order it in the shape of a penis. I've been told you get better results when you don't make that request.

And if you're going to say no self-respecting  :kstategrad: should eat at a place whose business model uncludes phrasing like "all you can eat"  but I can vouch that its worth it

Also, Wichita Fish Co. is a good little hole in the wall with good fish, best (and arguably only) raw oysters in town.

Jet BBQ was always fun to go to, I grew up on the north side of K-96 and Woodlawn, and it was so fun to watch people scream all the way down the Thunder Plunge (you could hear them from the front yard of my house). Glad someone said Old Mill Tasty Shop already. The goblin thing by the keeper of the plains is pretty interesting, given they spent money on putting a goblin under the grating by the river. Skate East was cool as a kid (Skate South was not a place to go to). Don't know if it's still there but the Riverside Perk was fun 19th hole to go to after playing a round of disc golf at Oak Park. All the airshows with it used to being the Air Capital were fun to watch, as it was to see the B-1's (when they were there) and KC-135's do there flight path in to McConnell (living near that flight path was just great). Going to Mosley Street Melodrama can be cheesy sometimes, but a lot of fun, especially at Christmas time.

I have to eat lunch in Wichita in a couple Weeks, I have as much time as I want, but only about $15 to spend, where should I go?

Scotch and Sirloin is the easy choice here. They don't have a lunch entree over $15 but don't have a dinner entree under $20.











Oh yeah, its also a front for high dollar prostitution.

Explains the reasonable meal prices. Have to make a good profit somewhere.

Went to Sumo and got lunch takeout since the fried rice is Lady BR's favorite.  I agree with her that the fired rice is very good.  Sushi was pretty mediocre.

Ha.  I don't really have a recipe.  Let me get it on paper and I'll pm it to you.  But you have to promise not to start a competing super elite cheesecake/coffee/wine bar next to mine.  Deal?

Most of Tanya's sammy's are cold.  Mike's are typical hot sandwiches.  Also you could hit The Flying Stove (food truck) for pretty elite sandwiches.

Backstage was the name of the bar next door that one of the Stevens owned. Had a brah who was a bar tender there. This is probably the only reason that J Beas' did not sit on me for my fat comment. This same friend bar tender also mumped Jenn Bates FWIW.

Jet BBQ was always fun to go to, I grew up on the north side of K-96 and Woodlawn, and it was so fun to watch people scream all the way down the Thunder Plunge (you could hear them from the front yard of my house). Glad someone said Old Mill Tasty Shop already. The goblin thing by the keeper of the plains is pretty interesting, given they spent money on putting a goblin under the grating by the river. Skate East was cool as a kid (Skate South was not a place to go to). Don't know if it's still there but the Riverside Perk was fun 19th hole to go to after playing a round of disc golf at Oak Park. All the airshows with it used to being the Air Capital were fun to watch, as it was to see the B-1's (when they were there) and KC-135's do there flight path in to McConnell (living near that flight path was just great). Going to Mosley Street Melodrama can be cheesy sometimes, but a lot of fun, especially at Christmas time.

My parents frickin love that melodrama place. (Well, I'm pretty sure it's my mom that really likes it.)

Horrible, horrible, no good, terrible place. :flush:

Looney Bin is good though

No, denied.  Old Town Cabaret is bitb.  But both are very different than Looney Bin.  Looney Bin is just a matter of who is performing. 

:thumbs: on the thunder plunge.  I miss that place. 

Jetman is great.  Stop by on a Friday evening and have a beer and play some ping pong.  Carousel Skate Center was/is awesome.  Never went to skate east.  Have been to skate south once unfortunately.  Riverside Perk is long gone - Maggie that owns Scotch and Soda killed it.

Yep, absolutely.   I would see about calling ahead though because it's tiny and can get pretty busy.   I got some takeout a week or so ago and it probably took me fifteen minutes.

Nice job with the list Rob but there is a fair amount of dookie on that list.

-WTF with  Larry Buds east, bro? That is the world capital of tshirt Shox/Squawk fan, it literally may be the most insufferable place on the planet.
-Good call on QT but I prefer the South Broadway QT for entertainment, lots of begging drug addled hookers.
-Spangles gives me mud butt. The Oasis Lounge has great burgers but it seems as if they intentionally make the worst fries on the planet.
-Scotch and Soda but no Scotch and Sirloin?
-Surprised to not see Cinnamon's Deli and City Bites (I really miss City Bites)
-There is a mexican place on West Street, north of central a block or two on the west side of the street that is amazing, the building used to be a drive in or something, no idea of the name.
-Never saw or heard of those statues, I gotta check that out on my next trip. I have been to the memorial at the park on Piatt St where the plane crashed and killed a bunch of black kids and nearly killed Lynette Woodard btw.

Wichita has character, I miss it more than Boston. I wish civic pride existed there.

I consider myself a bit of an expert on 24 Mexican places and that one on West isn't my favorite.   I've had it several times and it's often good but the consistency is lacking.   I generally hit up Abelardos, same basic menu as every place in town but it's always good and they don't mess around with the bacon like some other places.

Kapaun Coastal???   It was a lousy dirty gas station where a bunch of east side daddy's money douches would hang out.  It sucked. 

Also Southeast high is a dump and they're wise to move it before that area turns into a piling heap of urban decay in the coming years.

Have any of you ever been to a Wranglers/Wingnuts game that had to be stopped before completion for the fireworks? Nothing says Wichita more than fireworks with 2 outs in the top of the 7th of a 6-6 game.

Hey guys, I'm moving to Wichita after I graduate this year, and I have questions.

What are the best things to do?

Is Old Town a fun place to be? or should I find some place else to Pak and stuff?

Do I have to support the Shockers?

Never been to the riverfest, how is that?

Good place for dates?

If  you like to golf there's plenty of courses to play at.     Other than that it's your typical Midwestern drink, movies, softball/kickball flair. 

Oldtown is okay and would probably be cooler if you got a place downtown.  I highly suggest always getting a DD or a cab if you decide to live elsewhere.

Riverfest is very white trashy and pathetic.   

Shox are a personal preference.  I like.

Self medicate with booze that you're living here and work hard to get a transfer to a bigger better place.

I host a pick-up game of Ultimate every Monday, you should check it out!

Old town can be fun, my preference is to stay away from the club-y-er places.  Check out The Anchor, Public, and the Pumphouse if you want to do some patio sitting.

You don't have to support commuter-U if you don't want to.

Riverfest's trashiness is most of its appeal.

The Warren movie theaters are arguably one of the better things in the city, date city that is.

Don't let Eastborough fool you. Its nothing but a buncha snobs who think they're their own city.

Sure they have a cop in an over-priced vehicle, but they rely on the city of Wichita for all other emergency services, water, sewer, schools etc.

It's just a pretentious sub-division with finer homes.

I recall an incident in the late 80s where they tried to block Douglas through their little snob town, and Wichita like a boss said unt-uh if  you want emergency services. They complied quickly.

Not Dempsey's. That place is way overrated. Very meh.

I concur.  I popped in there a while back for lunch and was very disappointed with the Kobe burger.

why the eff would you ever order a kobe beer burger?

I guess it was the novelty of it.  I tasted the same as every other burger I've ever eaten.  :dunno:

kobe beef is sought-after because of the marbling. it's no different than any other beef if you grind it up.

I avoid Kellogg and the flyover at all costs.  It's not so much the roads, but the idiots who are driving on them.  Driving a semi through town is a real treat too.  My favorite is crotch rocket guy who likes to split lanes of traffic at 80 MPH.....

Brings up a positive of the city. Very easy to get from one place to another quickly. That said, I rarely venture much farther west than downtown or farther south than kellogg. The IMAX and the zoo will pull me that direction every once in awhile.

Was in town looking for apartments the past 3 days. Ate at Heroes in Old Town and had a really good burger. That was the only non-chain I ate at while there and it was great. I think I had the sweet pepper bacon burger. I would definitely recommend.

Since we weren't able to go look at apartments after Spring Break, we just decided to go with an apartment complex for the first year. All of the houses/duplexes for rent wouldn't hold the place for us until June 1st. It will be a lot easier to find one of those when we live in Wichita.

$1000 dollars is the cutoff, at least for the first year. We want at least two bedrooms with an open kitchen to the living room. We looked at about 10 different places and the Villas was the best in terms of being new, nice, and a good location in reference to where I'll be working.

Hey that's near my house!  I jog by that place a couple times every week.... I kinda thought it was a semi-retirement home, is it rentable by average Lukes?

Theres not a ton of good places for rent downtown unfortunately.  Innis Station can be manageable if you can score a spot in the private parking garage.  Eaton Place is pretty good, but kinda dumpy in some places.  Theres some converted lofts on 430 S Commerce that I friend of mine used to live in that as I recall, she liked pretty well.

Just live somewhere and save up to buy a house somewhere, the rental market in Wichita is way overpriced and houses are cheap.

Just live somewhere and save up to buy a house somewhere, the rental market in Wichita is way overpriced and houses are cheap.

Shut up, idiot.

Luke, there is an apartment building in the 1300 block of Franklin Street that is about the coolest place I've ever seen. https://www.google.com/maps/@37.699359,-97.353202,3a,75y,189.45h,79.91t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sOdmAyaQZevJEcidWwbOstw!2e0!6m1!1e1
Since we weren't able to go look at apartments after Spring Break, we just decided to go with an apartment complex for the first year. All of the houses/duplexes for rent wouldn't hold the place for us until June 1st. It will be a lot easier to find one of those when we live in Wichita.

It's rentable by average. I didn't see any older people there while I was there.
Well no crap.  So you actually looked at that place?  If the accommodations are good go for it, I've been living in that neighborhood for 5 years now, I'm full #TeamRiverside.  It's a great place.

@Herrsonntag

It was rentable by regular people in 2008. I'm not sure about now. It's pretty awesome inside, especially the apt on the left wing. It's two stories and has a bunch of awesome hardwood and a walkway/ balcony thing overlooking the living room. It's like something out of Harry Potter. Very cool.

The I'm guessing the other wing is similar as well. The middle apartments are neat, but not as cool.

I host a pick-up game of Ultimate every Monday, you should check it out!

When and where?
6:00 PM Mondays in the grass field south of Koch Arena.  Just started up for the season a week ago, we run as long as DST does.

I get off work at 6:30, would I be too late if I came at 6:45ish?

Sim is also the easiest, not that that's a bad thing. Good learner course for sure. Played MacDonald the most. Not in the Wichita Public Courses but is still public is WSU's Braeburn, which while isn't the nicest, is still decently nice and a fun course and I've probably had some of my best shots and holes ever at that course.

They're all great. Auburn Hills and MacDonald are the hardest, MacDonald is a bitch and I can't figure out why. I played Tex Consolver and Clapp the most because they are the easiest courses and the least busy although Consolver does a lot of tournaments.  I shot my best score at Clapp. Sim is the best course, Auburn is nice but overrated, but it's crazy busy and if you have a slice its likely you'll either break a window or kill someone on 1 and 2.

The golfing in Wichita is unbelievable and no city of similar size or most bigger can match it. Even though Wichita has recently lost two very accessible courses in Echo Hills and Braeburn, there are other great courses in the area like Sierra Hills in far West Wichita; its an executive course that I played with my wife. Cherry Oaks in Cheney, and there are two amazing courses in Winfield. Wellington Golf Club and Pine Bay in south Wichita are quaint, they frequently have groupons. Pine Bay also has an island green. I miss golfing in Wichita and I now live across the street from a course.


Anyone know what WSU is doing with the land Braeburn sat on? :cry: I took a golf class at WSU and got to play the course for $10 a round.

Also, you could still take your family to Fantasea in Wichita, though I'm not sure you would want to. 


 :lol:

mrs. dave is from wichita, a large gas station chain in Omaha is called Fantasy's, she will drive out of her way to go to a different gas station because of the name.  nfm. 

I know this topic is a fairly old post but I just had to throw my 2 cents in for whatever they're worth! If you grew up on the south/southeast side of Wichita or in the lgbt community you called it Barnacle Bill's or Barnacle Bill's fantasea. Why? Well, if you called it just fantasea people were liable to confuse it or joke that you were talking about Fantasy... a gay bar at 31st on Hillside, which is still open.

I'm hoping I can move my flight back a day as a meeting got canceled, but as it is I fly in really late next Wednesday night, could probably do lunch or happy hour Thursday, Thursday dinnerPAK, and Saturday lunchPAK.  Plan things that don't suck accordingly.

I also need to go to go to a few Dillon's stores to get all the sweet tea mios I can find.

It's already on my calendar.....also, regarding the Mio, don't you Amazon?

They're marked up $2-3 a bottle.  :frown:

How much do you want?  I can pre-purchase some so you don't have to waste good drinking time in that hell hole.

Don't sweat it.  I just did some more checking and if I don't get to them myself while I'm there I can order a gang of them from walmart at a decent price and get them shipped free.  http://www.walmart.com/ip/Mio-Sweet-Tea-Liquid-Water-Enhancer-1.62-oz/15939961

Mio is on sale at Dillon's right now for $2.99.

Jackpot.  What a clusterfuck the scheduling of this is though.  What used to be a great plan now has me needlessly missing a night at home and arriving 15 minutes after Ambassador stops shuttle'n.  I'm gonna have to get one of those dirty cabs to take me on a graveyard shift Dillon's run on the way to the hotel.

But this mio news is great.  I just put a couple big ziploc bags on my stack of stuff to pack to remind me to load them up.

Y'all need any fish?

I also have a Mio Coupon on my Dillon's card if you want to use it by putting in the number when you check out. (PM me if so.)

Definitely.  Do you and Gooch share a card?  If so, I'm betting we can use it Thursday during a lunch break.  Or if you find yourself at a Dillon's that has a good supply before then, grab 'em.

You want to know what doesn't suck about Wichita?  The Lost Sock Laundromat at Pawnee and SE Blvd.  They've got 19 pinball machines in there, by far the most of any single location in the state of Kansas, including all of KC.  Most of the games are only 25 cents to play and they have a few classic arcade games in there as well.  Now while they have a ton of games in there, most are older machines.  I think 11 of them are from the late 70's and 80's, 7 are from the 90's, and only one from the 2000's.  But that's OK because the operator does a good job of maintaining them, and you simply don't see a lot of those older games on location anymore.  To find a larger selection of pinball machines, you would have to go to Cactus Jack's in Oklahoma City which is not a fair comparison because that place is easily the best arcade in a 1000-mile radius.  If you are not good at pinball, Lost Sock is a very good place to practice because the games are so cheap there.  The only thing that kind of sucks is that the whole place is carpeted, so you really can't slide the machines at all.  You just have to nudge in a more subtle way.

Just got this email

Quote
We would like to let our most loyal customers and fans know...
    
From our CEO and President Paul Kruse

We’re committed to doing the 100 percent right thing, and the best way to do that is to take all of our products off the market until we are confident that they are all safe. At every step, we have made decisions in the best interest of our customers based on the evidence we had available at the time. We have brought in one of the world’s most respected food safety microbiologists to inspect our plants and systems to help us get to the bottom of this issue.

Through further internal testing, we learned today that Listeria monocytogenes was found in an additional half gallon of ice cream in our Brenham facility. While we initially believed this situation was isolated to one machine in one room, we now know that was wrong. We need to know more to be completely confident that our products are safe for our customers.

As Blue Bell moves forward, we are implementing a procedure called "test and hold" for all products made at all of our manufacturing facilities. This means that all products released will be tested first and held for release to the market only after the tests show they are safe.

In addition to the “test and hold” system, Blue Bell is implementing additional safety procedures and testing including:

-Expanding our already robust system of daily cleaning and sanitizing of equipment
-Expanding our system of swabbing and testing our plant environment by 800 percent to include more surfaces
-Sending samples daily to a leading microbiology laboratory for testing
-Providing additional employee training
At this point, we cannot say with certainty how Listeria was introduced to our facilities. We continue to work with our team of experts to eliminate this problem.

We urge consumers who have purchased Blue Bell products to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with any concerns or questions should call 1-866-608-3940 Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. CST or go to www.bluebell.com for the most up-to-date information.

We are heartbroken about this situation and apologize to all of our loyal Blue Bell fans and customers. Our entire history has been about making the very best and highest quality ice cream, and we intend to fix this problem. We want enjoying our ice cream to be a source of joy and pleasure, never a cause for concern, so we are committed to getting this right.

isn't it weird that there is a blue bell and a blue bunny.

Don't even get me started. Blue Bunny is #1 on my list of things I hate about Iowa and Iowans. They think that crap is sooooo good. It's basic, just like Iowans.

It has this weird aftertaste to it, which also possibly could be just like Iowans.  I don't have the personal experience to validate that theory.  Tastes like they use chalk instead of cream.

How sketchy is it around Wichita State's campus at night? My fiance will be taking some evening/night classes during the first semester and she is scared about it. She thinks I will need to take her to and from the classes.

I think on campus parking is probably ok, but just off campus...

I'm just speaking about a bad neighborhood that has a lot more crime at night than during the day. 

Wow, what do ya know.
Police investigating three separate incidents of guns fired

Wichita police are investigating three separate shootings that happened within an hour’s time early Sunday.

The first shooting was at 3:30 a.m. when officers responded to a call that shots were fired at Roseberry and Hillside, according to Sgt. Bob Gulliver, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department. At that shooting, several shell casings were found at the location and a 20-year-old woman told officers that she and a friend were driving in the area when an unknown person began shooting at them. The woman sustained minor injuries from broken glass. No suspect was located.

At 4 a.m., officers responded to shots fired in the 3300 block of South I-135. Two men, ages 20 and 27, told officers there were driving onto I-135 when a black 2000s model Dodge Charger sped past them and fired a shot at their vehicle, striking the driver’s side window. The 20-year old sustained minor injuries from flying glass. The shooter was not located, Gulliver said.

At 4:30 a.m., a drive-by was reported in the 600 block of South Belmont when a 35-year-old woman reported she was wakened after hearing several gunshots. She discovered a bullet hole in her front door and two additional bullet holes on the residence. A 13-year-old girl and a 46-year-old man were in the house at the time. There was no suspect information.

Ok, so here is my best Pete Kansas Ave Mexican joint review impersonation.

Mrs. Gooch and I headed down to waaay south Wichita to try this fabled chicken at Krispy's Chicken. It is quite the drive from my house in NW Wichita or as Trim always referred to it as Hutch :driving:. Pulled in to the parking lot and as you can see they really rolled the red carpet out for us with a spot right in front of the door. The building was much nicer than I expected. They really polished up a turd here.

(http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q630/michaelvannatta21/20150722_185534_zps3r8gnutq.jpg~original)

As we entered the building we were greeted by a blast of very hot chicken grease filled air.  I did smell delicious but it was uncomfortably warm in there. As we perused the menu the Asian girl behind the counter seemed a bit uneasy that we did not know exactly what we wanted. We were there for chicken of course we were just trying to decide on sides. She was very friendly and said just yell at me when you are ready to order and proceeded to go to the window to pack an order. We both settled on a two piece white. I'm a breast man what can I say? Sides were a large mashed potatoes & gravy and large fried okra. The girl proceeded to tell us it would be about a five minute wait for chicken. She seemed overly apologetic about this wait. I told her no worries as I knew we would be getting super fresh chicken. The price? $12 and change. As I was being rung up for this an Asian dude behind the counter came up apologized yet again and said it would be a five minute wait.  Again I assured him this was not an issue.

(http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q630/michaelvannatta21/20150722_183016_zpsnhbsacwc.jpg~original)

As for the fellow clientele in there. They seemed to be strictly "south siders". This is clearly not a "destination" dinning location. This guy with the tear drop tattoo did not seem to be as receptive as I was to the five minute wait. He did however stick it out which lead me to believe that this chicken might be legit.

(http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q630/michaelvannatta21/20150722_183908_zps5ipvbmfc.jpg~original)

The mashed potatoes and gravy was a one large container with the gravy on top of the scoop of taters. This concerned me greatly as I thought the gravy to potatoes ratio would be to heavily skewed to the potatoes side. It was not and you could really control the ratio on how you maneuvered your spoon. This would obviously only works in a his and hers situation and you did not mind eating out of the same container as your partner. The gravy was a peppered white gravy. Very tasty. The okra was very bland.

(http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q630/michaelvannatta21/20150722_184207_zps3apiu3yw.jpg~original)

Now for the chicken. It was served smoking ass hot in a paper boat type container. This is a terrible but frugal choice by the management. This does not allow the chicken to breath and caused a soggy crust condition as I had to wait for this to cool before eating. The crust is a light batter not heavily seasoned. In my opinion it needs more spice. It is very similar to Church's. The chicken itself was moist and generally good. You could contribute the moistness more to the fact that this chicken had come directly out of the fryer to the table. You can tell they do not marinate their chicken. They should as this is key for great fried chicken IMO. All in all it is an adequate piece of fried chicken. The sun was getting low in the sky so we quickly finished our meal and got the eff out, you know cause crime and all.   :Carl:

Final thoughts? This truly is something in Wichita that does not suck. It's not bad but also nothing special. It is very meh. Much like Wichita itself it is adequate but nothing to go out of your way to experience. So if for some truly unfortunate reason you find yourself in that neck (pun intended) of Wichita give it a try.  :thumbsup:

As I was being rung up for this an Asian dude behind the counter came up apologized yet again and said it would be a five minute wait.  Again I assured him this was not an issue.

As for the fellow clientele in there. They seemed to be strictly "south siders". This is clearly not a "destination" dinning location. This guy with the tear drop tattoo did not seem to be as receptive as I was to the five minute wait. He did however stick it out which lead me to believe that this chicken might be legit.

(http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q630/michaelvannatta21/20150722_183908_zps5ipvbmfc.jpg~original)

The mashed potatoes and gravy was a one large container with the gravy on top of the scoop of taters. This concerned me greatly as I thought the gravy to potatoes ratio would be to heavily skewed to the potatoes side. It was not and you could really control the ratio on how you maneuvered your spoon. This would obviously only works in a his and hers situation and you did not mind eating out of the same container as your partner. The gravy was a peppered white gravy. Very tasty. The okra was very bland.

(http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q630/michaelvannatta21/20150722_184207_zps3apiu3yw.jpg~original)

Now for the chicken. It was served smoking ass hot in a paper boat type container. This is a terrible but frugal choice by the management. This does not allow the chicken to breath and caused a soggy crust condition as I had to wait for this to cool before eating. The crust is a light batter not heavily seasoned. In my opinion it needs more spice. It is very similar to Church's. The chicken itself was moist and generally good. You could contribute the moistness more to the fact that this chicken had come directly out of the fryer to the table. You can tell they do not marinate their chicken. They should as this is key for great fried chicken IMO. All in all it is an adequate piece of fried chicken. The sun was getting low in the sky so we quickly finished our meal and got the eff out, you know cause crime and all.   :Carl:

Final thoughts? This truly is something in Wichita that does not suck. It's not bad but also nothing special. It is very meh. Much like Wichita itself it is adequate but nothing to go out of your way to experience. So if for some truly unfortunate reason you find yourself in that neck (pun intended) of Wichita give it a try.  :thumbsup:

You shoulda got the mac and cheez bites. Those are great.

When I still lived there there was a diner on the corner of Lincoln and Hillside and it was staffed by people in rehab. I heard the food was very very good but I never had a chance to check it out. If it's open you should do that one.

"Running a restaurant isn't a sprint. It's a marathon," he said as he was wrapping silverware at the table closest to the kitchen. The small restaurant was partitioned into a modest dining room, giving the majority of the space to the kitchen in the back that was currently putting my sampler together. It was in response to a regular, who was pleased with her food today and commended my choice of meal. She also asked me what caused me to stop in. Obviously, I couldn't reveal that I was collecting restaurant reviews like a 14 year-old Brad collected Pokémon cards, so I mumbled something about noticing the place after having driven by it a few times.

In reality, I've driven past it hundreds of times over the past four years but have finally reached the point where I've run out of other places to go. The fact of the matter is that seafood is still something that Wichita approaches trepidatiously, especially when it's not sushi or a high-end restaurant where we can use the price as a means to assure ourselves that it's fresh. In this respect, Pirate Pete's should be commended for their commitment to the cheap seafood shack; while they're easy to come by in other parts of the country, Pete's and Wichita Seafood Company are really the only two that manage to fill the gap between Newport Grill and Long John Silver's.

If anything, it gives them more motivation to produce a quality product, and they hedge their bets by largely focusing on the seafood and the preparation methods that they know they can do: this means lots of catfish and Pollock, and lots of frying. LOTS of frying. On the one hand, they are able to fry admirably well under varying circumstances - the thin slices of Pollock were plenty crispy in their panko-crusted exterior, while the eye-poppingly large catfish fillet was treated to a simple cornmeal coating before meeting the heat. They were both very well prepared and plenty fresh, though the lack of salt to either made both taste flat.

The freshly-made onion rings were almost as large as the catfish, and even though the onion started to slip out of its crusty exterior, I was still a fan. Coleslaw got the job done. In a respite from everything else, the grilled zucchini, squash, and broccoli made me feel a tiny bit better about eating all of that fried food, though really the vegetables has as much oil as the rest of the meal. It ended up being a stomach achingly large amount of grease. The vegetables were heavily seasoned, which I appreciated.

With a name like Pirate Pete's it's difficult to take the restaurant seriously, but they certainly don't cut corners when it comes to the product. It's mostly fried, and needs to be seasoned a little bit more, but barring that, Pirate Pete's is a very viable option when you're looking for some seafood without having to dress up and make reservations.

Specialties

Pirate Pete's Seafood is a small restaurant that specializes in Catfish and Pollock. We have Chicken for those who aren't quite a fan of fish. We would love for you to come in and have a seat in our recently remodeled restaurant, which, is now also under new management as of 2014.

History

Established in 2014.

We recently took over Ownership and changed out the Management of this Location. We chose to keep the name and location along with several of the recipes. We had to update some of our menu items; however, Tax is Now Included in all prices on our menu.

That's a great deal.  It's always been gross to fly SW to Chicago and Dallas when there's AA flights, especially when they're only 4500 Avios.

Now that girl with the breathalyzer issue will be able to fly SW direct to St. Louis, and those needing to go to Phoenix can take SW instead of even grosser Allegiant.

The great thing is, unlike some very overrated large Midwest cities supposedly famous for bbq, you can go to several different places on your visit and be happy. Much better choices than a metro area of 2 million people with 3 places to go, one of which is actually from Oklahoma.

If this did happen it's going to be very easy to figure out who did it by the sale listing. There's nothing listed on Zillow right now close enough to that house though. I can tell you, in that neighborhood, 25th and Amidon area, there are black people there and even more brown people so that letter doesn't make much sense. It took me two minutes to find the exact address.

My father in law just returned from his yearly pilgrimage to Lebanon. He says that on the last leg of his flight, the plane had to make an emergency landing "100 meters" from a river (he was very specific as he was nervous the plane would apparently fall in the river). They then had to wait several hours until some buses arrived and drove them 4-5 hours until they arrived in Wichita.

I have been disconnected from news/internet the past few days. Is this a real thing that happened?

If this did happen it's going to be very easy to figure out who did it by the sale listing. There's nothing listed on Zillow right now close enough to that house though. I can tell you, in that neighborhood, 25th and Amidon area, there are black people there and even more brown people so that letter doesn't make much sense. It took me two minutes to find the exact address.

Got horrific food poisoning form the original Douglas street location about 20 years ago. Had to be omitted to the hospital for IV's and then could only eat NutriCal out of a toothpaste tube for a week. Have never eaten their slop since until about a year ago When I went with Mrs Gooch so she would shut the hell up about it. Same garbagy crap. Their locations are slowly going away one by one. The day the last one closes I will pop bottles and light a blunt in celebration. eff that place forever.

Wichita businessman Steven says he is subject of federal gambling probe
SUBSCRIBER CONTENT: Feb 14, 2017, 1:26pm CST Updated: Feb 14, 2017, 4:13pm CST
KELLEN JENKINS/ WBJ

Wichita businessman Brandon Steven told the Wichita Eagle Tuesday that he is the subject of a federal investigation over poker and his attempts to land a casino license. Steven and an investment group attempted and failed last year to obtain a casino license under the name Castle Rock Casino. He also is well-known for his work as a professional poker player.

Wichita businessman Brandon Steven told the Wichita Eagle Tuesday that he is the subject of a federal investigation over poker and his attempts to land a casino license.

The Eagle reported Tuesday that one of its staffers, whom it did not identify, and the newspaper received letters Tuesday from the U.S. Attorney's office informing them that their phone communications with Steven were intercepted last year under federal law.

The letters, required by law, do not implicate the staffer and the newspaper in the probe. They are required as notification that the calls were intercepted by federal investigators.

And then later Tuesday afternoon, the Eagle reported that former state senator Michael O'Donnell's calls also have been intercepted by the feds. The Steven family has financially contributed to O'Donnell's senate campaign in the past.

Wichita Mayor Jeff Longwell said Monday he expects action from the U.S. Attorney's office on the Steven probe in the next two weeks, amid reports the city is doing its own internal investigation involving the alleged connection of off-duty police officers to Steven. Longwell would not confirm the investigation or any action taken thus far.

Steven and an investment group attempted and failed last year to obtain a casino license under the name Castle Rock Casino. He also is well-known for his work as a professional poker player.

Steven is a partner in several Wichita car dealerships, the family's chain of Genesis Health Clubs and other businesses.

They have to be trying to nab him on something bigger than shady poker dealings.

Speculating here, did he try to bribe his way into casino biz?  His wife's divorce attorney is finding a discrepancy between his stated net worth and the financials he submitted to obtain the gaming license?
The big shots that flew into town for high stakes card games liked for hookers to be available, may have included an undercover FBI agent, and might have been so profitable that the money got laundered through legitimate businesses? Just spit-ballin' of course :cool:

That story omits Nilla's.  And lol:

Quote
Brandon Steven was playing high-stakes poker against Beverly Lange, a Texas woman at the televised World Series of Poker in 2013, when she decided to go all in with $435,000 in chips.

“Would it surprise you if I had a king?” Steven asked her. Steven was telling her that he had kings, which would beat the jacks in her hand. Or he could be bluffing.

“No,” Lange said calmly.

“It wouldn’t surprise you at all,” he said, taken aback by her response. “What do you do in Austin?”

Lange said she ran pom-pom drill team competitions and camps for young girls.

“Really,” Steven said, and then, as if trying to see if she was on his level. “You play a lot of poker?”

Steven started mumbling aloud the possible hands she could have. She couldn’t have an ace, could she?

“I’m really not that good of a poker player,” Lange said. “Don’t try to figure out, you know, what I should’ve done, because what you would expect me to do is probably not something I would do. Does that help you?”

Steven laughed: either she had made a mistake, or Steven was being played. “It helps me; it helps me. I know I have the worst hand, and I’m probably still going to call,” Steven said.

“If you have the worst hand, I definitely want you to call,” Lange said.

But seconds later, Steven folded with the kings that would’ve won. “A dagger to the heart of Brandon Steven,” the TV commentator said. Although Steven lost, the hand showed how savvy he had become at high-stakes poker.

What a strange article.  For almost all of it, there's a tone of how these are all formalities to get to a conclusion about the prospective casino issue, and then at the very end, almost an aside about a lawyer whose office had confiscated from it a pillowcase containing $22K in cash and jewelry that was brought in by someone whose house was searched.

Pretty sure the hookers are gone now. Sonny is out and the place is being run by new management. They remodeled the crap out of it and are pushing a more business by day Family by night atmosphere.

That's definitely not a problem, but I know that its still supposed to be pretty cold and _FANw is not a huge fan of hanging out in the cold too long.

Ideally I want to park somewhere close to where we'll eat and the arena. It looks like that area north of the arena will be the best spot for that I have no issue paying 10-15 to park.

There is a big free parking lot (Coleman Parking Lot/Rotary Plaza) at 2nd & St. Francis just north of the Arena. It's a short walk, close to Old Town, Bite me BBQ is right there.

Someone would have to update on how things stand now because the restaurant changes slightly frequently, but the spot in the Ambassador hotel just a bit left of your screenshot is usually good.  We've pak'd there often, including immediately prior to walking into the arena for wwe smackdown on my last night living there.

You'd still be able to park anywhere and walk among any of those things.

You could also see if the trolley thing will be running (q-line?) and expand your options down to Delano and go to Monarch and others.

I would love to eat there, but I'm not traveling another hour plus to do so.

I was thinking of narrowing it down to one of these:

Larkspur isn't too shabby either.  It is just east of Biggins.

A baller ass place to eat. Rusty is right about B&C it's very good and close enough to walk to IBA, they have weird hours though. I'd also recommend Playa Azul if you're down with Mexican, it's on Washington and Douglas.

Also, B&C has renovated and is adding a patio and full bar.

I don't know what that is, I've been gone for five years though, did it exist during the halcyon years of Wichita and gE?

Great choice. Speaking of halcyon days of gE, River City was the site of a get together that still has torn this blog apart to this day.

The #longbone is in a magical land called winfield with a new bar that serves it. The place is called Shindigs. I have only had their chicken fried steak but it is a grand establishment.

The police said he lowered his hands to his waist when told to raise them.  They really are a state sanctioned execution squad that are basically untouchable at this point.

Yeah, he was arrested last week, last I saw they were awaiting extradition. I believe he was from Fresno and that wasn't the first time he swatted someone.

The problem is the number of people who jump to blame anyone other than the guy who did the shooting.  It was the guys fault for lowering his hands.  It was the guy making a prank phone call's (which, is what this was, the police are hiding behind "we got fooled by a prank phone call so we killed a guy") fault.
