THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! KANSAS CITY RESTAURANT WEEK 2019 FAILED BECAUSE THEY FORGOT WINTER AND SHUT DOWN GUV WORKERS!!!
Once again the traditional foodie fest in the cold of Kansas City January has been a magnificent flop.
The same complaints continue to confront KCMO Restaurant week:
- The service is bad because the servers aren't fairly compensate for the rush.
- The options are horrible and include a lot of aftermarket cast off fare.
- It's overpriced for the luxury of being judged by a handful of local hipsters.
This is all important for taxpayers because the event is backed by taxpayer subsidized Visit KC and "neighborhood" tourism cash.
Of course, two arctic cold fronts pretty much killed attendance for the event.
But here's the worst thing . . .
THE KANSAS CITY HIPSTER PARTY FORGOT ABOUT FED WORKERS WHO COULD'VE USED A WINTER TREAT!!!
Example, inside the beltway, a celebrated chef is using his star power to make a bold statement and garnering a lot of love:
José Andrés feeds nearly 12,000 furloughed federal workers
Yeah, yeah, the KC foodie event has a few foodie beneficiaries but the help is minimal and this event has always been about maintaining a KCMO culinary "scene" in a town that just wants BBQ and fries. \
And so we blame organizers who play marketing genius for KCMO but have once again presided over yet another disaster partially paid for by residents who weren't invited.
And all of this inspires our playlist tonight . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
