more than likely they were driving X5's 5 years ago, not X3's.  X3's are reserved for 28 year old junior sales associate chicks leasing their way into 20 years of debt and grandmas finally retired and buying their dream car.

It's ok... I thought KC was a "city" too, before moving to a real one.

To the rest of the United States, KC, Indianapolis, and Albuquerque are all pretty much interchangeable as far as progressiveness and prestige go.

I've never lived in Dallas or LA but I've traveled to both cities extensively for business and I can't think of two cities that are more different.

Dallas seemed like a bunch of midwesterners with their midwestern values who love fine dining at an endless array of chain restaurants while driving their trucks on highways that aren't backed up for miles on end.

LA seemed like a melting pot of a city with vastly superior dining choices that can take you 15 minutes to reach per each mile on the highway.  The very same highways where people drive their leased luxury cars that most of them can't afford because in LA appearances matter a hell of a lot more than they do in Dallas.

I've never lived in Dallas or LA but I've traveled to both cities extensively for business and I can't think of two cities that are more different.

Dallas seemed like a bunch of midwesterners with their midwestern values who love fine dining at an endless array of chain restaurants while driving their trucks on highways that aren't backed up for miles on end.

LA seemed like a melting pot of a city with vastly superior dining choices that can take you 15 minutes to reach per each mile on the highway.  The very same highways where people drive their leased luxury cars that most of them can't afford because in LA appearances matter a hell of a lot more than they do in Dallas.

it doesn't sound like you've spent a lot of time in downtown dallas or some of the areas just north of downtown dallas and hey, that's ok.

Admittedly I've spent more time in downtown LA than in Dallas where more of my business is in the burbs.  I'm always open to new things so can you recommend a nice place/area to stay in downtown Dallas?  I've got a trip scheduled there late summer to visit a rep down there. 

I'll report my findings upon return.

i've spent 12 nights in downtown chicago over the past three years and around 30 in dallas over the past eight. those two cities are nothing alike. swing and a miss.

we have 2 types of non-believers here:

1. clams, who loves LA a lot (deservedly so) and doesn't want to see its name tarnished by comparing it to Dallas (or anywhere really), but is blind to some pretty major and obvious similarities
2. retards who think we are talking about either A) cowboy hat belt buckle spurs and boots-wearing monster truck driving herp derps from fort worth or B) tucked in jorts wearing small town midwesterners who visit Arlington. either way the image-conscious Dallas that i'm talking about is a foreign concept to these folks

Okay so now we're just talking about the image-conscious area of Dallas.  Every major city has an image-conscious area. The city of Dallas encompasses more than just a portion of the downtown area.  Maybe you should have said "hey there's a few square miles in Dallas that are like 100 square miles in LA."  In the 40-50 nights I've spent in each city, the people and the culture I observed were nothing alike. 

Maybe you haven't spent enough time in LA.

KC has the best downtown skyline from about 2 miles west of the Mississippi to about 20 miles east of the Pacific, excepting Vegas if you like the glitz. It's set on top of a freaking hill and you can see downtown from miles away in every directions. The approaches from the west, north, and south are awesome, and east isn't terrible.

KC is not aesthetically pleasing at all.

compared to what?
the buildings, skyscrapers, the city.. its all very thrown together

You just described every major city in the United States, with the exception of Washington, DC.

I wish I had grown up in a comparable Midwestern city and then moved here so I could be unbiased, but most people that I know who have done that really like KC compared to their Midwestern city of comparable size.

This.  Mrs. WNK did TFA in KC and 80% of the other TFA members were from all around the U.S.  Most had a horrible perception about KC when they first landed (cause our airport is surrounded by cows and stuff).  Perception changed after the first month or so and many still live in the area 5 years later.  KC really does have a lot to offer and you are probably a lazy POS if you think this town is boring.

I would love to fly into the downtown airport sometime. Hearing old timers describe the approach from the south by the bluffs sounds pretty cool.

West Bottoms could be a really cool area. Did you know there was once a tunnel into the bluffs from the West Bottoms for the trolley to get to/from downtown?

Just read through this thread for the first time.  Dallas is just like LA?  What?

I dated a wonderful gal who was a fundraiser for KU and she covered both LA and Dallas (and most other major cities).  She had a different outfit for each.  In Dallas she wore a skirt.  In LA she wore jeans.  She could find her vegetarian food easily in LA, but not in Dallas.

Dallas is vaguely sexist Southern manners and teased blonde hair on girls; LA is self-important, egocentric behavior and flat blonde hair on girls.  LA has an ocean, surfing and the entertainment industry.  Dallas has football fans, BBQ and oil.

Both have lots of fake boobs, lots of highways, and no bookstores.  But I don't think the similarities outweigh the differences...

yeah, I mean the plaza is about as nice of an area as you'll find in any major midwestern city.  the buildings, the surroundings, the hills.  tremendous.  downtown is fantastic from 3/4 approaches.  westport/39th/etc are all older but well-maintained areas.  the country club district is probably one of the most beautiful neighborhoods I've seen anywhere, especially fairway, westwood, etc.

never been to chicago, minny or indy, but STL and OKC are both awful.  my fiancee is from DFW and thinks DFW is the greatest place on planet earth, but even she'll admit that KC is much prettier than DFW.  parts of denver are nice, but that drive on I-70 from the east toward the mountains is gross.

while KC obviously lacks any natural beauty like mountains or a coastline, i find the trees and hills give it more natural beauty than flat and generally dry and treeless towns like OKC and DFW to my hometown biased eye.

STL is very similar but has a more run down feel, prolly due to how much older the Brookside type neighborhoods are.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Westbound lanes of Interstate 70 reopened late Friday morning at the Benton Curve after a cattle truck overturned.

KMBC's Jana Corrie said the driver was not hurt. A passenger in the truck suffered minor injuries.

Police said the driver of the truck, who was heading for Colorado, told them that his load shifted, causing the accident.

One cow escaped the trailer after the crash. Authorities had to call in another trailer to offload the cattle.

There were 79 head of cattle on the trailer. Police said 72 steers survived.

One westbound lane of I-70 reopened at 10:30 a.m.

The comparo being Goose Island made a lot of stipulations on their beer before selling in order for it to continue to feel like a craft brewery and not a mass-production brewery like Anheuser Busch.  Some of Goose Island's beers are not allowed to be distributed outside of Chicago city limits due to the stipulations listed in the contract.

And yes, Duvel is serious about beer.

A Letter From Our Founder

October 17, 2013

Dear Friends,

Almost 30 years ago, I was fortunate to spend time traveling around Europe with my wife, Anne Blumer. In each city I visited, one of my favorite adventures was trying different beers. I sipped bitter ales in England, spent my days in Munich drinking pilsners and wheat beers, but it was in Paris, in a Belgian beer bar, that I truly fell in love.

I will never forget the day. I walked into the pub, ordered a Belgian ale, and experienced what I can only describe as an epiphany. The beer was brilliant in color, with intensely floral aromas and a flavor bursting with joyous complexity. I went back day after day, sampling a wide array of amazing beers, and was hooked for life.

Last winter my wife and I returned to that same Parisian pub, and the memory of that long-ago experience flooded my senses. It has been many years since that fateful encounter started me on the path to brewing my own beer and founding Boulevard Brewing Company. At the outset, my goal was to make a beer as extraordinary as the Belgian ales I had so fortuitously discovered. With the help of my parents Bill and Mary and my wife Anne, Boulevard has grown into one of the largest craft breweries in the country, and my dream has become a reality. While I always say I don't have a favorite Boulevard beer, I must admit that some of the Belgian ales in our lineup are as exciting to me as those beers I first tasted in Paris all those years ago.

I have long felt as though I have three children: Boulevard, born in 1989, Jake, in 1990, and Piper, in 1992. I'm not getting any younger, and the long-term future of the brewery has weighed on my mind for the past several years. After long discussions with my family, we determined that we wanted to find a way to take Boulevard to the next level while retaining its essence, its people, its personality – all the characteristics that make our beer and our brewery so important to Kansas City and the Midwest.
I am honored and humbled to announce that I have chosen Duvel Moortgat as the long-term partner for Boulevard. An independent, family-owned craft brewer spanning four generations, Duvel Moortgat produces world-class beers at several breweries in Belgium, and owns and operates Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, NY. They bring to us an unparalleled depth of experience, strong resources, and an unwavering devotion to quality. Duvel Moortgat is committed to our people, to the expansion of our Kansas City brewery, and to growing Boulevard brands throughout the US and abroad. After spending a lot of time getting to know the company and its people, I am confident this is the right decision. We share the same values, respect each other's achievements, and have the same obsession for exceptional beers.

Be assured that this is not goodbye. Although Boulevard is combining with Duvel Moortgat, I will remain closely involved, with a continuing stake in the business and a seat on the board. My commitment to sustainability initiatives will continue, as will Boulevard’s support of Ripple Glass, the glass recycling company I co-founded.

For now, all I can say is thank you. Thank you for making the last 24 years an amazing journey for me and the entire Boulevard family. We will continue to work hard to produce great beers, and to give back to the community. Ultimately, I am determined to make Kansas City even more proud of its hometown brewery, and our dedicated supporters delighted to raise a glass of Boulevard beer.

Cheers,

John McDonald

Last time it was in Westport a friend of mine may or may not have gone swimming in the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fountain on 43rd and JC Nichols Parkway

it was awesome in westport.  didn't go in p&l.  they were trying to set a guiness record for biggest pub crawl, and I guess it was easier to track the numbers at p&l.  no idea if they beat the record or not.

Both times at Oceans of fun.

1. Was on that racing slide that goes straight down. I hit a bump and was lifted up in the air on a free fall. I had 4 cuts on my legs from that event.  :cheers: Engineers  :D

2. Was a half tube slide. I came out of the hole and hit a corner and half my body hung over the side.  :ohno: I screamed and held on until I regained balance.

It would be cool if they spent that money on timing the lights so it is possible to be first in line at one light, on 119th for example, and when it turns green drive the speed limit to the next light and arrive shortly after it turns green so you can continue to your destination.  As almost all of OP is set now, you will arrive at the next light just as it turns red.  Wasting fuel and time, harming the environment and economy in the process.

the first concept is stupid, you could adjust them so they clear the N/S lanes as the E/W were approaching.

and there are VERY few in this city that have traffic sensors.  They really want you to think they do but you can sit at a red light and be the only one in sight.

and there are VERY few in this city that have traffic sensors.  They really want you to think they do but you can sit at a red light and be the only one in sight.

I mean, this assumes that all the traffic coming to an intersection is coming from a previous intersection. also that everyone is going between the speed limit threshold that would make the light green for everyone. add in people who slam on their breaks during yellows and the system is mumped. its great in theory, as most traffic is, but it doesn't work all the time.

also, most lights in the city do have traffic sensors (actually called traffic loops), they've just had new pavement over them so you cant always see them. you may not be able to see the slits in the pavement but if you look at the curb where the base of the light is, usually you can see some slits going up the curb into one single slit running to a box. generally, the loops are only designed to feel a car through a certain amount of pavement. the more pavement that gets added on, the worse they work. also, some of them are old and just break. the city may not fix them all the time because theyre expensive.

Don't know if discussed but went to Genesee Royale by Kemper in West Bottoms - liked it and would go back, not terribly far from River Market.

Speaking of they took the couches out of Happy Gillis and replaced them with tables? Most have gotten more popular.

I like Quay coffee but went on a late Sunday afternoon and it was def crowded - but plenty of outdoor benches nearby.

Farmhouse didn't meet expectations. Food/service ok. Whoever decorated that place is woof.

You're woof, you bad person! They have the best breakfast sandwich i've ever had in the history of time. I'd put them up there with Succotash. Speaking of the west bottoms, I always forget it's right there. I really want to go back to the Golden Ox sometime soon.

I had the brunch burger off the special menu but will try the breakfast sandwich next time I go - probably would have gotten it had I note been ripped on coffee and feeling risky. Draught selection was pretty good. Speaking of, do they have a guy there that crinkles the menus after they print and spills maple syrup on them?

That's a great corner right there though, location is top notch.

:lol: I loved that. It is a little overpriced for what you get. I can understand your hesitance with it. Ms. Wackysquawk isn't really a fan either, but goes cause I pick up the tab. I just think it's pretty unique and convenient for my location on the weekend.

Alright guyz, take it away.

First insider'y tip is don't be scared on the MAX.  Until the streetcar gets built it's a great way to get from RM to other downtown neighborhoods like Crossroads and get the full benefit of downtown living.

River Market proper?  Market 3 for quick grocery/food things, Minskys, Farmhouse as mentioned.  Happy Gillis and paldolfi's in Columbus Park just to the east are both great.  Bridge over the river to get down to river front park is good once it gets warmer.    The wine store owned by Kennison is great stuff.

It's basically a salsa/hot sauce combo that you can put on almost anything. Has a little bit of a kick but not overly spicy. It really takes breakfast to the next level.

How was it? What did you order?
Big delay, Puppy is eating into the bbsin time.  Standard fried chicken dinner.  Split it with Lady BR. 
Comes with one breast, one leg, one thigh, and one wing then salad, taters n gravy, cinn rolls, and green beans.  Enough food to fill us both up with ease.  Honestly it is all really good but my favorites are the cinn rolls and the green beans. 
Best way to do it is just call ahead (40 min till its ready!) and get takeout unless you go midweek.  It takes a while for them to cook it  when you eat there and most of the time you are going to have to wait for a table.  Plus its way easier to split a meal and not look like white hogs when you take it home.
Chicken fried steak is probably my favorite thing they make but we compromised for the fried chicken.  Which is still the best i've ever had.

Hey mocat, thanks for appreciating history since these other downgrades ('clams :D) would rather talk about stupid boned food, JFC (jesus rough ridin' christ  :facepalm:)

a twofer would be if we could just sit down and look at old timey photos of the original stroud's with the uneven floor and the old piano and all the old timey cars that parked on the dirt parking lot to get some of that pan fried chicken in pre-WWII americana  :love:

He doesn't trust any mainstream places like ok joes, gates, jack stack, etc. It annoys me. "Hey, FanMan, I saw the brick on DDD, let's go there, looks cool."

I volunteer time at the Austin Celiac Center, and attitudes like this need to stop.  Are there a lot of people who adopt a gluten-free diet for non-medical reasons?  Sure there are.  That fad, though, has a very positive externality for those who have been diagnosed with Celiac, because it leads to more gluten-conscious restaurants.  It wasn't long ago that a Celiac (Celies, for short) had very few choices when it came to dining out.  You may think it's fun to be smug about it, but know that a large number of those who you are blank-insulting really have no say in the matter.  It's a very humiliating thing to be taunted for following the ONLY treatment available for your medical condition.  Believe me, Celies don't like it when non-celies evangelize a gluten-free diet based on pseudo-science, because they know ignorant folks will needlessly cast aspersions in their direction for it. 

Disclaimer:  I do not have Celiac Disease and I do eat gluten.

That was more a lyft problem, think uber worked it out with city ordinances before launching. That's the impression I got from Slys latest tweets.
So apparently what I saw was lyft driver pulled over.

Guyz, RJBBQ Shack has the best breakfast in KC.

Get the farmhand platter, its like 8 bucks and includes
    A. 2 Meats (I usually go with the Smoked Bacon :love: and the Jalepeno Sausage  :lick:)
    B. 2 Eggs
    C. Hash Browns (Amazing with their spicy BBQ sauce)
    D. Biscuits and Gravy (Sometimes I sub this out for toast)
    E. Fresh Cinnamon Roll as an App.

The only downside is that their coffee is below average  :frown:
   

All of this...can be had for 8 dollaros?  Frickin' shazbot!  :curse: Baller Breakfast on a Budget.

Its fo real....and they dont skimp on the serving sizes.....4 LARGE PIECES of smoked bacon and an ENTIRE LINK of Jalapeno Sausage.

I think you've confused quantity with quality, my friend.

I haven't been to I-70, but the Boulevard Drive In is great fun. And it's $10 for a double feature.

But, yeah, sounds like it might not be for you if you can't think of stuffing some Jack Links in your glove box.

I thought it was mischaracterized completely.    My impression was aside from the special tappings we'd be able to sample other non-Boulevard beers.    I can order a Boulevard product anytime, dipshits.

head to panda express at 135th and metcalf if you're in the mood to experience authentic flavors from the orient

i went on tuesday, they stamped my passport twice
I recently had some Panda in Olathe. It was awful. Is this an Olathe thing or does Panda Express just blow dicks?

You know what?  A lot of people in this world live in towns or cities that they really don't like that much.  For me though, as someone who has a family, it doesn't get much better than this city. 

The only places that I would prefer are either cost prohibitive or so far from family that it would cause other undesirable burdens (and there aren't too many cities that fit this category).

Kansas City is pretty rough ridin' good, guys.  Pretty rough ridin' good.

I'm contemplating the consulting engineering gig, which KC is about the best place in the world for, but I'd like to stick with some sort of innovation/development type deal for a while.  Where you are would be a pretty cool place to work with all those start-ups.  We're always interfacing with folks from over there and it seems fun.  I'm kinda risk averse, though.

We moved in the little corridor between 119th and 135th and Metcalf and Nall.

I have yet to find anything that's not within one mile of my house.  My wife planned a shopping trip with about eight stops in it last weekend, and they were all within a mile of our house.

Christ, there's a Varney's on 135th and Nall in Prairie Fire.

Basically, I'm saying that I now understand why everyone who moves to JoCo stays there.  It's a nice place to live when you get old and lazy.

I could understand living in a town you don't want to if you have a job you really like.

2nd grade idiot outed.  Next.

i love listening to people talk about how cultured they are, i guess i'm cultured like that.

I really hated to use that word, but I couldn't think of any other single word that encompassed anything interesting.

No, it's an appropriate word.  It's a pretty bland area.

Basically, it's swapping culture for convenience.

Every day there are people moving from Chicago to Houston because of better job opportunities or because they like the city better. But guess what, every day there are people moving Houston to Chicago because of better job opportunities or because they like the city better.

To be honest, would I rather live in San Diego or Seattle?  Sure.  I've been to both, loved them, and could see myself really enjoying them.  I haven't been to Portland, but I'm guessing I'd probably dig it, too.

That said, I am able to afford a certain type of lifestyle living in KC that I couldn't have if I lived in any of those other places, plus, I'm around lifelong friends, family, and other things that I care about (i.e. KSU).

If I were to give an aggregate score on all facets of my life (everything Pete said), KC probably wins, therefore, I stay.

not when you've already come out as saying that the town is just mediocre for jobs and opportunities. also, the job is like part of the town. like you only have that great job because you live in that town or whatever. so just stfu.

We moved in the little corridor between 119th and 135th and Metcalf and Nall.

I have yet to find anything that's not within one mile of my house.  My wife planned a shopping trip with about eight stops in it last weekend, and they were all within a mile of our house.

Christ, there's a Varney's on 135th and Nall in Prairie Fire.

Basically, I'm saying that I now understand why everyone who moves to JoCo stays there.  It's a nice place to live when you get old and lazy.

That literally sounds like hell.  8 stops, within a mile....you drove, right?   :Yuck: But yeah I mean you are right, lots of people love living close to a target/etc.

I'm just gE'ing here, bud. I'm sure the south accomodates to married ppl with children. I'm just a downtown snob now.  :ohno:

me too  :D

(planning on possibly moving to mid-town or the river market fairly soon)

culture?

lol at anyone who doesn't believe there can be a sense of culture in the suburbs. Great people who care about each other (for the most part) create a sense of community and that is culture, IMO. No, there's not grafiti on the sides of buildings and you're not going to have a pointless streetcar to nowhere built on the backs of people who don't want or need it in the next few years, but there's nothing wrong with Johnson County. I'm not sure I could live in the farthest reaching suburbs myself, but the 119-135 corridor that was described is hardly an exterior suburb at this point.

Sure, I prefer the character of PV's nicer parts and Old Leawood, but I've come to respect the aforementioned 119-135/Nall-Metcalf area for the people, convenience, and quality of life. That said, I work downtown and it'll take quite the pressure from a filly to pull me that far south. But...it's pretty hard to argue that SME district (Westwood, Fairway, PV, and Old Leawood) isn't more desirable than farther south unless you work in OP/Olathe (Olathe... :Yuck:)

I'm not going to live my much of my adult life in mid- or down-town. FWIW, I've lived between the plaza and WP for a year+ and am moving to the valentine neighborhood this month. Just  don't see it being practical for much longer.

On the one hand, there are about 4 different house blueprints used throughout PV north of 75th street (sometimes flipped or spun around, tho!). On the other hand, because they were built 60+ years ago, decades of remodeling, landscaping, and the aforementioned trees have lent some character to the neighborhoods.

So maybe in 50 years 119/135 will escape some of the blandness, too. Although they already have a Blue Moose, so rough start.

I was talking about the nice parts of PV and Old Leawood. Around 71st surrouding IHCC and toward St. Line. Nall to State Line between high 70s and state line. Old leawood basically Nall to St. Line from Somerset to ~100th. Old leawood and esp. the Lee Blbd is a wonderful area.

where I live will fight any of the places any of you live in an old fashioned homogeneous-off btw. the suburb/farm fringe zone of omaha wins against any and all takers.

frightening really.  idk what part of town you're referring to, but I saw some pretty impressively segregated parts of Omaha when I was there.

Westport Cafe and Bar reported that its sales were up 30 percent in the first quarter compared with the same period in 2013. Kelly’s Westport Inn, which opened in 1947, went from “horrible” sales for the two years following the Power & Light District’s opening to record years in 2012 and 2013, according to the owners. This year is setting up to be another good one.

“We’ve had our highs and lows — mobs and mobs and mobs of people that would gather on the weekend; crime was really bad,” Garrelts of Bluestem said. “But that has completely changed. It’s not just a bar neighborhood anymore. You are seeing BMWs, Mercedes and Johnson County people coming down.”

Hey, 'meister!

I suggest you get "The Judges Plate" your first time going. It's a great way to sample what they're all about and is delicious.

Their take on the Z-man concept is the Pitmaster Brisket sandwich...also very good.

I haven't tried it yet, but the burnt-end burger is supposedly very tasty, too.

Other than goE products, I hadn't bought a t-shirt in probably 5 years. I've bought 3 over the past year; all KC-centric, all made by local folks (none of the shirts featured in the article). I usually dress up more, but it's nice to have a good-looking t to wear when it's super-cashz time. The Bunker and KC heart tees, like the Baldwin ballcaps, are definitely faddish and overdone (esp Baldwin), but at least they've spurred other local designers and companies to create different KC-centric designs. It's nice to be able to support local businesses and find some non-Royals KC apparel that's not garish red and yellow.

It's kind of like bandwagon fans when your team starts winning: annoying, but in the end I'm glad to have them, because it means something's going right for something I love.

Gotta try to get to q39 sometime in the next week. Hearing nothing but good things.

Remedy sucked. I bud of mine loved going there and always forced me to tag along. It was always dead and way overpriced. Still not sure how/why kennedy's closed, it was always packed. just a mystery of life I guess.

I live in waldo and I rarely go out in waldo, if I do it's to 75th street or bier station (I live across the street  :gocho: ) I wouldn't classify going to bier station as "going out" tho, but I do binge there on a weekly basis.

It takes me 15 minutes to get from Cosentinos to quality hill for crying out loud. The worst part of it, is this thing is only going from the River Market to Crown Center. What a waste of taxpayers $.  :curse:

I usually do. However, when I get off work, I either go workout or pick up something real quick from cosentinos if we don't have any food in the house. It's more convenient to drive by on your way home. It's easier to walk there on the weekend tho.

first thing I thought when I heard the news was hope it didn't hit either of your buildings....going to suck if they have to tear that building down....it wasn't much currently but it was great old building stock on a corner lot...and much better than the surface lot that would almost certainly replace it.

Correct, old location had water stains on ceiling tiles, a menu display that had not changed since 1980, all sorts of "charm". New location is kaddy corner from where the old location was at 95th and Antioch.

"Troost area" omg

True story, I lived in PV after college for a short period. My obamatard neighbors served me with a letter nearly identical to this one for parking my car on the street facing the wrong direction. I bet it's the same people (huge snobs, racists, trust fund libtards).  I told them I'd fix it as soon as they fixed their shitty yard. In hindsight, i wish I would have told them to fix their "troosty" yard.

They used to brag about how pv had more dogs than people, and that used to bug the eff out of me the same way "Troost area" bugs mocat.
