Music venue, dance club and 'dive bar' in Midtown destroyed by fire

A fire Saturday morning destroyed Davey's Uptown Rambler's Club at 3402 Main St. Kansas City Fire Department battalion chief John McKie said the call came in at 8:23 a.m. "There was heavy black smoke coming out of the back," he said. "We did a good job getting it under control quickly."

Easy.

It's called "Insurance Payout."

I know Michelle and everyone down there, especially Mokie.

The place made money and had a loyal following. They rake when they get good acts, so, no, NOT AN INSURANCE PAYOUT.

Doesn't help the property tax bill double last year either.

think again chuck,
I like your comments but apparently you haven't been there in awhile. Good acts? I think not. Not in a long time. Driving away customers is their own fault. I'm thinking that place has been a money loser for at least a year or two. The Virus month ahead of them makes one ponder about lighting a match.

I'm assuming you go there a lot then? To know the quality of acts so well? Why keep going to a place that is terrible?

1:38 Wrong.

The cooler was worked on last week. It was still defective. The Fire Department said it originated right there AT THE COOLER.

A shame.
I have sucked many a dick there.

The bar would have little to gain from an arson, the building is seperately owned and most of the insurance proceeds would go to the building owner. The extent of the bar's property/casualty coverage likely only covers their inventory and equipment, if that. There is no evidence that the cause was arson.

Arsons are more common when the property becomes obsolete in some sense (no ability to sell other than at a loss) while the structure is insured for its replacement value (which may be significantly more than its market value).

Why you spout shit when you have no idea what you are talking about. You are a "writer", specializing in fiction/hate?

Thanks Chuck, but it is a waste of time to argue with anonymous haters.
