Local Sign Of The Times: Westport Hates Kansas City Power & Light District!!!



Let's call this a weekend primer . . .

Take a look at this local image floating around the Kansas City Internets.

While it speaks to local sentiment, it doesn't really help the MILLIONS that Kansas City is losing every year in addition to a recent condo double down.

I don't go to Westport after dark regardless anymore.

If I want to go to Vegas I go to Vegas not the fake downtown Vegas imitation we're offering here.

Well if Westport didnt have such a hipster infestation, and crime after dark it would be more attractive.

hipster infestation and crime after dark being metonyms for you're scared of anyone that didn't graduate from blue valley southwest?

4:21, scared of hipsters? No, its more of a pest control issue. Crime after dark? I guess we now ignore statistics.

Unfortunately we now have a hipster problem in KC among numerous others to include mob mentality and violence.

Fuck the P&L...bunch of out-of-town douche-bag bars...getting the benefit of our millions thanks to Kay Barnes and the city powers that know so much more than us --while Westport gets squat.

It is important that we preserve and shop at Westport. Just need to clean the culture up a little.

To cleanup Westport requires getting rid of the hipsters and morons looking to inflict pain on people when stupid. Which is most of the time.

Downtown doesn't have any soul. It's a cultural wasteland. At least for the moment.

Don't worry the streetcar is going to fix that. And that's an endorsement my friend!

David Jackass said...

And it's going to be free to ride too!

Dont worry folks. The hipsters wont ruin the street car. They will ride it a few times then refuse its existence once everyone else has gotten a chance to ride it. It wont be "cool" to them forever. Once this phase comes and goes the majority population of the metro area will have a pleasant experience. Unless of course the zoo/plaza problem spills to the street cars.

Westport hipsters are really just irrelevant posers. They all share the same brain, and are constantly seeking approval from the high school like group mentality.


As for Westport making a comeback this is looking a lot better now than a few years back. Always a good place to get lunch with work friends or just friends in general.

Westport is garbage

I am going to sound lame here, but westport is not a fun place to drive in. I hate driving around down there. There are always drunk people wandering around in front of cars. It is just too many drunk people that like to play in the street. Add the criminal car jacking element and its just crazy. It has been worse for cime in the past, but lately it has been a jay-walking drunk zone.

a D-11 bulldozer would do wonders to the landscape of both Westport and P&L. Both cesspools of blight in KC. Just a breeding grounds for lazy do nothing hipster ass wipes.
