Kansas City Streetcar Grille On Track To Change Tragic Theme In Less Than Two Years

On paper the concept probably seemed like a good idea. There was probably lots of excitement about operating "vibrancy" of a taxpayer subsidized that would spark nostalgia regarding this town's glory days and maybe craft a new transit future.

The reality is that serving up the same fare is kind of a slog and the downtown lunch crowd isn't quite as glamorous as folks imagine. Sadly, all of the hype in the world and even taxpayer subsidy won't keep a restaurant open . . . And so, here's the latest victim of downtown marketing.

We have a gargantuan "Sports Bar" in the form of the P&L District that's been open for almost twenty years and has never been able to make enough to pay its own debt service, and so has had to be bailed out by the City every year. If it can't survive off of the KU grads and other dregs, how the hell do these people think they can "upgrade" the same thing and make it?

Six to nine months max!
