Kansas City Hates The Ink Bar Guide
Quick bit of "journalism" (advertorial) feedback before the next issue . . .
MOST OF KANSAS CITY'S MEDIA ELITE ABSOLUTELY HATED THE INK BAR GUIDE!!!
The promo edition has some absolutely horrible reviews . . . Here's just a bit of what people said . . .
"One more reason I despise INK magazine is their biannual bar guide. It was last week's issue and on the cover they said it is a "64 page guide to 561 bars." Who cares? If you're that much of a loser that you have to read a newspaper to find your favorite bar you might as well stay home and drink a 12-pack . . . What an absolute embarrassment to Kansas City."
"It wasn't so much of a 'bar guide' as it was just a listing of every bar in Kansas City without as much as a rating . . . What a transparent attempt to shill for advertisers."
"Riddle me this . . . Why are there only old people pictured in the bars? They're not really selling these places very well. I guess INK is KC's new bar shopper guide."
Still . . . For the most part people simply continued to ignore the Star's gimme party mag while most people looked for bar reviews online and among friends.
