CELEBRATE!!! LONG-DELAYED PICKLE SAMMICH SHOP COMING SOON PROVES DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY WINNING?!?!
Without voters consent required by a citywide vote, a new Downtown Kansas City toy train streetcar arrived today.
Even better, denizens inside the loop earn just a bit of release according to this news tease . . .
KC Biz Journal: "Operators of the downtown Kansas City Pickleman’s sandwich and soup shop signed a long-term lease for a 2,600-square-foot space at 25 E. 12th St. in 2016, but it still hasn’t opened. That’s about to change, according to Kansas City-based franchisee Jordan Starke. The shop is slated to open in three to four weeks and will feature Pickleman's new design — a modern and industrial vibe."
For subscribers, there's some great info in that link about how KCMO haggled to require some costly improvements and it's actually 12th & Oak that postponed sammiches.
More importantly, the cold cut debate sparks our afternoon question . . .
ARE A FEW MORE EATERIES AND LUXURY APARTMENTS THE ONLY BENEFIT OF OVERWHELMING DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY TAXPAYER SUBSIDY?!?!
For those who live near the loop but aren't taking part in the so-called "Renaissance" that's sure what it looks like.
Moreover, downtown KCMO cheerleaders refuse to answer any critical questions whilst the rest of KCMO and even some parts of the loop suffer one of the worse homicide spikes this town has seen in decades.
