TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! INSIDER: MORE CLOSINGS AHEAD AS PLAZA DEVASTATED BY KANSAS CITY RIOTS!!!
Quick preview for the week ahead as the ongoing pandemic and continued protest make it harder to conduct biz as usual in Kansas City.
After nearly more than half a dozen businesses have closed on the Country Club Plaza since the start of the year . . . The pandemic Summer slow down and a harsh election season has more shops ready to close. Very soon, a major retailer will announce a stunning construction reversal that threatens to leave an EPIC empty space in this town's oldest entertainment district.
However, we can't blame this all on social justice protest, riots and conflict with police. Retail is dead and the generic fare now found on the Plaza is easily duplicated in the burbs. Still, that doesn't make the loss of JOBS any more welcomed.
And so, tonight our playlist is dedicated to this old school stomping ground that has endured violence, monument rename politics and the unwanted challenge of serving as the city's battle ground for social justice.
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
