TKC Blog Community Taking Macabre Bets: How Long Until Monarch Midtown Kansas City Hipster Coffee Shop Is Robbed???
Monarch gets well-deserved loved from Kansas City media and these two hipsters starting a biz in Midtown Kansas City should get a lot of credit. But let's look at the facts . . . About five years ago a coffeeshop across the street was forced to close down after constant robberies, the former jazz club across the street couldn't make it work because of security issues and HUGE EGOS . . . And just about every other place near this location struggles with a litany of hobo trouble.
We want these hipster to succeed . . . And while they say that "Hollywood is the only place where you can die of encouragement" . . . Condescending media coverage in Kansas City also presents a clear & present danger to residents and small biz who aren't presented of a realistic picture of this town.
Don't get it twisted, we wish this duo the very best but a critical discussion of crime along the worsening Broadway corridor is more important than Kansas City cheerleading . . .
