TODAY'S TKC QUESTION: HAS KANSAS CITY RACIAL HATERATION KILLED GOOD TIMES @ THE POWER AND LIGHT DISTRICT?!?!
By and large most Kansas City residents seem to think that the Downtown Power and Light District is lame.
That's not just TKC talking trash. Ask around, most locals loathe the fake corporate feel of the place and the adult fun factory vibe. It's kinda like a bar buffet for people who peaked as a Senior in high school.
