Kansas City Streetcar Consequence: Cascone's Grill Closes In River Market Today

An iconic and enduring local tradition calls it quits today. It'll be replaced with a hipster trendy experiment that won't garner much traction. The biz endured for decades but parking problems, hostile City Market management and fewer customers to this district overall have shut it down.

Here's the postscript:

Cascone's Grill closing Thursday after decades in the River Market

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- After nearly 90 years of serving food in the River Market, Cascone's Grill will close for good on Thursday. Owner George Cascone said the decision is a culmination of several things including the impact of the streetcar, parking fees and a rent increase.

Big mistake to lose Cascone's. The sad thing is, it didn't have to happen.

^^Bullshit. Things change dude. It's capitalism. The idea that the streetcar and parking problems killed it is laughable. Here's the truth: Nobody went there anymore. Before the street car came there was a morning rush from 7-9 and then nothing. Restaurants can't survive on 2 hrs of business per day. I'm surprised it lasted this long to tell the truth.

KC was a horse and cow town. Now it is a car and truck town. No parking or hard parking is a death sentence to any brick and mortar establishment.

I have been to Anton's several times and will never return. Too cool for school there. On two occasions I had reservations and still had to wait more than 40 minutes for the table. Both times the staff was unapologetic... like I was blessed to be there. Even if a client asks to go there I will steer us to Majestic, Cap Grille..

Several closures along the streetcar route... maybe it's just too much business.

@8:55AM I know you have a little dick and can't fuck. Your wife tells me. So there's that....

9:31 I can see you're a real class act. Oops, sorry I meant classless act. Real factual argument you have there. I'd ruin your life if I could find out who you are. I am sure many people in your life would be appalled if they saw the things you said in here all the time. Hell might even get you fired and labeled the biggest loser in this town. You might think you're anonymous but just wait till you mess with the wrong person and find out how anonymous you're not. Some of your comments hinge real close to being classified as a hate crime. And since you do it almost every day in here I would think it would be easy to get the FBI's Civil Rights group to come after you. You see Free Speech is federally protected and you constantly attack those expressing it with hate comments. I think I will start saving every post you make in here and after I have two months or so of your garbage talk I will hand the file over. You might think I am messing with you but can you really afford to find out? Good Luck.

^^^^^^^How about just going over the past two months of comments they have made. Tons of stuff there to be collected and saved. That way you won't have to wait two months and maybe we can stop seeing this troll all that much faster.

@11:30 Is posting politically incorrect facts and opinions using the name of a dead Hollywood actor who was famous for portraying prairie-scum ... a "Hate Crime" ? Just askin'.

I don't know about that 12:17, A hate crime is only committed by a hateful person and this person attacks people verbally daily. Also verbally abusing older people could be classified as a hate crime under a recent law review I was recently notified about from the home office to be aware of and to see it isn't happening at our location. Just look at all the geezer and diaper wearing geezer comments being made daily.

^^^You seem really stupid. I bet you are. I bet you never graduated high school. "Verbally abusing old people"???? LOL!!!! Are you a pants-shitting geezer? Tell me Einstein...just where do you think you are??? You're on a blog comments section and you're crying like a little bitch. Has your dumb ass ever heard the saying that you should never wrestle a pig. You get dirty and besides, the pig likes it. I know you're really dumb and can't figure that out by yourself, so maybe get someone to help you figure out what it means.

Goddamnit ! Now pig-wrestling is a bad thing ! The venom is really flowing here today !

@11:30AM save all the indignation and Pius outrage it's as phony as you are. Did you miss 8:55 AM's post, or did you write it?? Either way, you're too fucking stupid to do anything about it so go ahead and fuck right off now. Hear that chump???? Oh and by the way, you may re-read your post. Pretty sure you threatned to ruin someone's life which in case you didn't know, and because you're likely a fucking retard, is a crime.

You see Free Speech is federally protected and you constantly attack those expressing it with hate comments.

What's the matter 12:48 things getting too hot in here for you? Maybe it's time for just that. I'd support such happening. Exposing you I'm betting would ruin your life, so that isn't a threat, it's more a promise and a statement of the results rendered if you were to be exposed. So as the famous fictional cop said, "You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well do ya, punk?"

1:02 is 12:48 how lame

@1:18-I'm not your lawyer, and have no dogs in this "fight", but if I WERE your lawyer, I'd advise you to delete your post.

Anonymous said...

^^at 11:30 that is. You did not say that "I'm betting would ruin your life" You in fact said "I'd ruin your life if I could find out who you are." which indeed is a threat. You should probably hope whoever 9:31 AM didn't keep a copy. Just a little pro bono advice. Again, don't care.

Dang. 11:30 Really is going to jail! You did get knocked the fuck out!!!!!!!!

@1:18PM See if you can answer this question: Which statement is worse in the eyes of the law? "I'd ruin your life if I could find out who you are" or
"I'd kill you if I could find out who you are." Short answer? Neither. Both are implied threats and both against the law. Ugh oh. May you should ask Tony if people can be sued for what they say on this blog?

Hey wanna be lawyer you better stop giving legal advice. What 11:30 said isn't a threat. It isn't against the law to legally ruin the life of a person who is probably breaking the law in some way to begin with. Police officers utter those words every day. 1:28, 1:33, 1:46, 1:52 is clearly the same person because they simply acted like your normal guilty person who tries to make it look like they are innocent. Look clown you've been messing up in here for some time. I hope people are out to get you and that it does ruin your life as you know it. Heck I just might join in and start keeping the links to these posts when I see extreme hateful stuff and turn my own list in to authorities. Maybe if enough is said something will happen. Also you showed your stupidity by saying to delete the post. You can't delete an anonymous post only Tony can or Blogger. The program was written that way so you haters can't come back a little later and delete your hateful rages. What 9:31 is really guilty of for sure is slander using those words. The kinds of words that could ruin your life financially. But I'm betting it isn't the only thing they are guilty of.

Once again basement boy, who is a legally recognized liar who FAILED to stop the launch & success of the KC Streetcar is once again lying & not recognizing the fact that the new Estelle’s Diner which will be immediately replacing Cascones was especially due to the KC Streetcar stop being right there.

Not a surprise that Tony is a liar because that’s who he is:
