KANSAS CITY BIG 12 CREATES ANNUAL DOWNTOWN PARKING PRICE GOUGING!!!
Kansas City amateur urban planners love and vibrancy but the Big 12 basketball tradition is mostly just a headache for anybody who has to work Downtown.
First and foremost . . .
DOWNTOWN PARKING PRICE GOUGING THREATENS MOTORISTS THROUGHOUT THE LOOP AMID THE RUSH TO CASH IN ON TOURISTS!!!
We'll see if the streetcar alleviates some of the pressure but the fact is that riding along the route isn't as convenient as better access by way of pricey parking lots . . .
This pricetag is actually one of the more reasonable rates over the past few years . . .
Meanwhile, the restaurant and bar biz never makes out as much as civic boosters claim given that sports fanboys are content to stuff their faces with hot dogs and other concession stand garbage rather than enjoy one of the overpriced and lame P&L District locations.
Either way . . . The b-ball crowds will close streets, bring far too many people from Iowa into town and mostly serve as a nuisance to anybody who needs to get work done.
You've been warned.
