KANSAS CITY EAST SIDE LEADERS BLUSH AMID 18TH & VINE TWERKING CONTEST!!!
Kansas City's 18th & Vine District has been billed as an upscale destination for visitors to enjoy the legacy of local jazz and appreciate remarkable African-American achievement and heritage.
Taxpayers have funded this effort to the tune of more than $100-MILLION over more than a generation.
However, with increased pressure to show profitability and a sustainable biz model . . .
18TH & VINE IS NOW HOME TO ONE OF THE MOST BAWDY TWERKING COMPETITIONS IN KANSAS CITY!!!
Adventurous souls can check the publicity posted video of the booty shaking competition at the The Velvet Freeze Daiquiris which is relatively new addition to the neighborhood that has benefited with from the work of Councilman Jermaine Reed who helped to relax liquor codes within the district.
Furthermore, here's a bit of flyer promo in case that video disappears. All of this CLEARLY demonstrates that the backsides of scantily-clad women shaking their butts in the air is a much more popular attraction than old school occasional visitors to the district like TKC; boring friends & relatives with insights into the virtuosity of John Coltrane.
Accordingly . . .
Here's the real question . . .
WHY SHOULD KANSAS CITY TAXPAYERS KEEP FUNDING TWERKING CONTESTS?!?!
As our headline suggests, the issue was brought to our attention by East Side leaders who aren't exactly proud of the new direction taken by 18th & Vine establishments.
But this isn't just about KC's jazz party place . . . Let's not forget that equally questionable content, ass-shaking and THOT celebration regularly occurs in the P&L district that's financed by City Hall at a rate of about $15-MILLION a year.
At some point, KCMO can't keep supporting these very fun but increasingly nasty parties. Sadly, even in the light of day, the question of local entertainment district support never seems to arise for politicos during election season.
