TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY EAST SIDE CONCERN OVER UPCOMING 'FREAKY TALES' PARTY IN THE 18TH & VINE DISTRICT!!!
The scary Kansas City Halloween season is underway and this weekend there's continued controversy on the subject of branding and public subsidy.
Moreover . . .
TAXPAYERS QUESTION THE VALUE OF AN ADULT THEMED PARTY IN THE KANSAS CITY JAZZ DISTRICT!!!
This statement sent our way from a local taxpayer tells the story perfectly:
The 18th & Vine Jazz Historic District suffers from MIXED MARKETING MESSAGES.
Is the district a Historic Jazz & Entertainment District or is it now an ADULT Entertainment District?
Note latest promotional piece for The Juke House. On the same weekend the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is sponsoring its annual Family Friendly Festival for children 13 and under a few feet away Halloween "TAILS" is slated. The festival was moved to Friday night probably to get away from the Adult Halloween party . . .
One event will attract families the other likely will attract bullets ...
It has been an interesting week for the Vine, $250,000 more taxpayer $$$ provided to the American Jazz Museum to finally pay some of the people who have not been paid for Jazz Festival Memorial Day Weekend . . . And now another controversial gathering.
You decide . . .
