LACKLUSTER REVIEW FOR KANSAS CITY CELEBRATION @ THE STATION LAST NIGHT!!!



The terrorists won last night because a bit of drizzle and light rain frustrated suburbanites @ The Union Station Celebration At The Station.

To wit . . .

FIRST WORD FROM THE EVENT REVEALS THAT KANSAS CITY SUBURBANITES WERE DISAPPOINTED BY THE UNION STATION EVENT THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF A BIT OF RAIN AND AUDIO PROBLEMS!!!

Here's the word from a finicky TKC TIPSTER . . .

"Don't know if I agree with your analysis BUT wanted you to know that the Celebration @ the station last night was an unmitigated disaster. The rain basically ruined the event, the parking was a disaster, Union Station really needs to invest in a professional PA system and the 30 minutes straight of fireworks was nothing more than pure overkill. This was once a more dignified gathering for families but yet again Union Station has tinkered with their success and turned it into a failure.

A bit harsh but Kansas City critics deserve their say as this part of town gears up for RockFest.

C'mon now. You were going to call it a disaster no matter what.

I didn't get any rain.

It was a great time and all the "suburbanites" around us were from KCMO north of the river.
Not many hipster and millenial denizens of high-density innovative downtown, though.
Maybe therre was a festival of heirloom tomatoes and organic arugula somewhere else.

Haha, that arugula has really got you peeved for some reason. The cupcake thing I get, but arugula has phytochemicals that help keep the ass cancer at bay.

Seriously this clown will complain about anything. First of all no rain, this should take everything else and discount it. Sound was fine. Lastly this is not OP you can not park in front and take 3 steps to get in. We parked by the cashew and walked it was awesome, had drinks after to let people leave,key way to work it. This TKC "tipster" aka someone that didn't go is a little bitch

Amber Waves said...

Sprinkles not rain. Your tipster was very bitchy. Sound has always been a problem but you can solve that by getting their early and moving closer. People in KC really need to stop bitching so much.

711 to clarify there were like 3 drops, so not really sprinkles and its there, not possessive. They should plan on walking. Hangout, after.We saw people leaving when the fireworks started, WTF. That is like having sex (very enjoyable) but stopping it before climaxing and that's it.........WHY

Out fucking standing..... now we have a "organic

cure" for ASS CANCER.

Leave it to the Hipsters to happen onto a "CURE"

for "ASS CANCER".

Feed George Gustello some of that "Ass Cancer" cure as he is the biggest "ASSHOLE" in KC.

Boo Hoo if the taxpayer funded celebration for JOCO freeloaders was a disaster. That poster talking about what a "great time" it was was either a Chamber minion or one of Guestello's gay assistants that clean up freshly deposited raincoats on the Union Station back parking lots.

@833 actually that is impossible! Use your brain and you will understand why it is not possible. Some people just complain about any and everything. Just enjoy the fun times

Tony you take everything good about our community throw it in the trash for what reason? A new low for you and those that comment on your trash. Attacking an event that honors those that gave their lives to protect your freedom to do what you call Free Speech.
Go down to the station and read the stories and see the pictures of those that die for us. Take a picture of that post it ....not the things you do. Shame on you and those that spin your sick evil. So very very sad.

Go clutch your pearls somewhere else, Gertrude.

Tony, will you print ANYTHING as long as its negative enough? Do you bother to check it out at all?

As others have noted, no, it didn't rain. So your "tipster" is lying his ass off to you right there. But you don't seem to care. Print it anyway.

Poor sound? Good grief, it's an outdoor event covering two city blocks. He was expecting Carnegie Hall?

Besides, we sat WAAAAY up the hill for ringside seats for the fireworks, and we heard just fine.

Finally, you should be wary of "tipsters" too stupid to figure out until they get there that there will be parking issues around an event that draws tens of thousands of people.

But again, you don't care, Tony, and certainly not about the truth or your integrity. Hell, if it's negative, you'll print it. Makes you feel important to sit back and criticize. But it certainly doesn't require much work or brainpower, which suits you just fine.

Celebration @ the Station? .........more like Insurrection @ the Resurrection!!


My family drove all the way in from Mission Hills only to be met with an absence of valet parking, reserved seating, and umbrella toting footmen.
Priscilla and I had thought that this would be an opportunity for our children to attend a "public" event and practice mingling with the commoners, but I must agree with your confidential informant that it was an unmitigated disaster!
I say old chap, I got so flustered at one point that I mistook a large black man wearing a bowtie for a clown, and ask him to blow some balloons for Chance and Penelope......come to find out it was your Mayor!
To cap off the evening, upon returning to the Jaguar, I discovered a massive scratch along the driver's door, must have been nearly a 1/4 inch in length!
Once we cruised west of State Line Road, I tell you a heavy load lifted from my shoulders.

I'm sorry to hear you're still driving a Jaguar in the 21st century. Guess you couldn't get on the list for the Audi?

Anonymous said...

LOL, these fireworks are too long is like saying this blowjob is taking too long.

Anonymous said...

Audi? Oh yeah, the piece of shit gullible white boys who think it's a luxury car because it costs a lot of money.

Well, fools and their money . . .

Anonymous said...

Actually, the Jaguar and the Audi are cars for people with more money than brains. Which is why you find so many of them in JoCo.

Anonymous said...

They inherited their money so their salaries can cover luxury items. As long as they can deposit a few hundred bucks a month in savings for the rest of their lives they're living like a prince.

Actually, the large black man with a bow tie you encountered WAS a clown.
You should have told him you wanted to build something downtown because you were so excited about his streetcar, and he would have written a million dollar check on the city's general fund on the spot.
Missed opportunity, but there's always the GOP Convention.

5:29, my bet is he would try and suck it off ~

Seriously. I did not hear one complaint at or after the event. Nothing but compliments and amazement regarding how KC honors those who serve and have served. Let's see . . . free admission, beautiful music, amazing fireworks, less than 10 drops of rain. That sounds like one terrific way to kick off summer to me. My family and friends will be back, again and again. Thanks to all who sponsor this wonderful tradition.
