Ah only three post so far, I bet this blog would be full of comments if this shooting had happened up the road in 18th and Vine. But I know, the Crossroads is a nice neighborhood and those kind of thing just doesn't happen down there.

I think First fridays had gotten out of control generally speaking. It needs to refocus, scale back and return to being about the ART and galleries in the area NOT just an excuse to roam around looking for trouble. Street vendors yes, dance parties NO! It just kept growing getting bigger and bigger and running later and later. Do we really need 2+ miles of food trucks? Sad to say this tragedy was almost destined to happen.

Kansas City Nice, huh?! Just keeping the #5 rank in murder MOMENTUM. Hate that Mayor Q said that overused word this week. It reminds of a BowTie led clown act and a recent losing mayoral candidate who said it too often. I don't want to see, hear, or use it anymore.

Diversity is our strength...do you believe it?

Paul Drake said...

2:30 Diversity is the death of civilization and the reduction of standards diminished down to the lowest common denominator - which, in America's case, will be the sub culture of blacks, concomitant with the violence, misogyny and anti-law enforcement hatred supported by the Main Stream Media.

Demographics is destiny.

So long white people, hello Baltimore, ain't it great!?!?

Look at the official First Friday map--not a gallery within three blocks of the shooting and homicide.

This was a Friday night street party in the parking lot of the former Hereford House. The city encourages and allows food trucks. It's a totally misguided effort to keep idle urban yutes out of Westport or the Plaza on a nice night. Folk who can't afford a sammie. Picking fights over nonsense.

No city security provided, and thus: dangerous. Has nothing to do with going to galleries.

I've probably been to more First Fridays than all y'all combined, even had an art show there. But I quit going two years ago. When the idle youth crowded the sidewalks and were rude and jostling and stoned. Selling hideous crap on folding tables, bad music in the street at 18th and Baltimore, no parking available for real art patrons. All the galleries stopped the complimentary wine and cheese.

Gallerists felt like hostages behind their glass doors and windows. Dealing mostly with requests to use their bathrooms, since--the city doesn't provide them! You can't allow 20,000 to 40,000 folks to wander about, drinking sodas or hooch from a flask--without portapotties!!!

The galleries in the East Crossroads? Stretch's sculpture garden? Pi Gallery, gone. And the best one: Late Show closed with the death of Tom Deatheridge, May 16, 2017. Mark that as the day First Friday officially died.

In West Crossroads--the photo on the link I provided? That WAS the Todd Weiner Gallery, where I always went. Closed three years ago!

Weinberger Gallery (Kim) had to move from 18th/across from Birdies-- to SW Blvd, and started charging $50 memberships to even get in the door to keep the riff raff from peeing for free on the bathroom floors. Her art parties are all private now.

YJ's restaurant closed, building was sold. This scene is over.

But you are right, Tony--blame the city. They are ignoring unruly behavior. First Fridays are no longer about art. It's the Missouri State Fair for roving bored millenials, only instead of pig shit and cotton candy, the aromas wafting from the food trucks cover the smell of gunpowder.

You would never have this happen in Sedalia. Because THIS crowd is so broke, they don't even have $12 for admission or a BBQ sammie. They are just malingering. Sly James' pizza parties without the free food.

I feel for the parents of this dead 20 year old young woman. A lifetime of dreams and hopes gone while standing in line. This was not a good location for a date night.

Your post is disgusting. A young woman is dead, and you make a joke about art gallery visits? This young woman was one of the nicest people you would ever meet, and you couldn’t carry her water. What a sad pathetic “poster” you are. So woke!

These murderous crims are often outed as Killa Shitty versions of "If I had a son" Trayvons. Their dysfunctions run broad, from familial, educational, social, and cultural....with the blessings from those race grievance industries' pimps: Al Sharp-tongue, Jesse Jacks-off, Louis Fairy-con, Jussie Smell-it, A O Cone-head and her Jihadi Squad, plus too many others WHO ARE FRONTED BY THE SOROS SELL-OUTS, LEFTIST LOVING, LAME STREAM MEDIA.

So, FUKUBUNCHA fascists and fakes who are the REAL RACISTS THAT HAVE HOMICIDAL HATE FOR AMERICA!!!!!!
