Kansas City Small Biz Saturday: Mayor Q Promotes Buy Local Bingo Amid COVID-19 Curfew Crackdown Restaurant Apocalypse

Today's blast from 12th & Oak hopes to inspire more consumer interest despite a strict crackdown that has sparked the shut down of more than a half a dozen KCMO restaurants since it was enacted less than two weeks ago. 

Here's the word from Mayor Quinton Lucas . . . 

Small businesses are foundational to our community, and there's almost nothing they can't provide for the people of Kansas City. We all recognize the challenges our small, local businesses have endured this year—so if you're able and looking to spend money this weekend, I challenge you to support five local businesses and complete at least one row of BINGO.  If you don't see your go-to spots on this board, you can share and tag your own or give your favorite businesses a shoutout below. When you've completed a row, tag me! I'm always looking for new recommendations. #SmallBusinessSaturday #ShopLocalKC

And of course the play along board is included . . .

And so we ask . . .

HOW CAN MAYOR Q EFFECTIVELY PROMOTE SMALL BIZ AMID OUTCRY OVER DRACONIAN COVID CURFEW POLICY?!?!

Because this effort is cutesy and earns love from social media followers but probably won't placate his harsher critics in the local small biz community. 

 Update: There is actually a much better buy local ETSY list that is gaining traction on social media right now for those who feel like doing something helpful. 

You decide . . .

is it too cutesy? Sure.

But then ask yourself:

What are the chuds around this blog doing to make things any better?

The answer: NOTHING.

Utterance from a keyboard warrior bum. No thanks.

Gotta give the mayor credit.

That is the most "woke" list of local businesses ever assembled. Very non offensive and diverse.

Only one luxury restaurant across the bridge in Briarcliff.

The Mayor obviously hates the Northland and it's obvious he wants the fastest growing part of the city to fail. Shame on him.

“We all recognize the challenges our small, local businesses, employees and the citizens have endured this year with the failed leadership at city hall”

There, fixed it.

If only meaningless speeches and superficial games could pay the rent for KCMO small businesses.
Has the plywood been taken down off the windows of the stores in the Plaza yet?
There are thousands of people unemployed, many dozens of small companies bankrupt and permanently closed, and a wave of foreclosures and evictions just over the horizon.
Not really the time for childish games and personal appearances by KCMO D-list celebrity politicos.

If you crackheads had simply worn masks and taken some basic precautions this summer instead of immediately heading to the bars and eating out we wouldn't be in the mess we're in. End of story.

Do any TKC readers know of a single individual who had no serious health issues who contracted Covid19, got sick, and then died ?

Midtown Mike said...

^^^ actually. I know three people who have had it. Two are still in the hospital. I am a conservative and I voted for Mike Parson for Missouri Governor. The COVID-19 pandemic is real. Sorry you are trying to spread false information but the truth is indeed very scary.

Do I think the Dems capitalized on it? Of course, but to deny all of these people getting sick and many dying it just asinine and it puts other people in danger.

Q has ruined KC.

Sorry about that.

Assistant Crack-Whore said...

@2:31 Midtown Mike, read the post at 2:27. I asked If anyone knew anyone who was perfectly healthy, got Covid19, became sick, then died. Knowing three people who have it and two are in the hospital doesn't meet the criteria for the question. And just where in my post do you see false information ?

LUCAS HAS BETRAYED YOU ALL. FOOLS!!! I laugh at you from my Townhouse in Raymore. BAHAHAHAHA!

Killer kc has had almost 23,000 cases since March. There is currently only less than 1900 active cases. I personally know four nurses and one dept head and they say the hospitals aren’t close to being overloaded and none of them are overly concerned about being over run, It’s possible but the chances are small. Big clue is they aren't cancelling anything related to surgeries or out patient treatments.

2:31 it’s a very small percentage of people who aren’t doing the right things, you act like every person in kc is not wearing a mask or something, why do you have to be such a drama queen over 0.26% of the population being infected and an even smaller 0.05% death rate?

You come on here daily with your lies and bullshit when all of it is easily debunked, WTF is wrong with you?

It must really be frustrating for blacks to be unable to flashmob, shoplift, protest, intimidate and loot on Amazon. Just another example of white privilege.

2:27. My neighbor had no health problems, got it, and died. But of course many people with health problems have died. The trouble with arrogant fools like yourself is that many people people have pre-existing conditions...high blood pressure...AFIB...pre diabetes and the like but DON'T even know it. And they get Covid and they sometime die. You are pitifully ignorant.

Support small business. If the Mayor don't have the Convention,And Tourists,Back IT will be Difficult for Small Businesses. Take Midtown YOU Pass by Costco and Home Depot there are Hundreds of Cars THE Small Business only a few cars .But The Coffee shop on 30th And Cherry is Always Busy. Many of the Small business in Crown Center have left.

Bandit said...

Bingo? That's your solution? Seriously? Not only a hard pass but I'm dying laughing here!
不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不

You are a sad joke Q Ball and my money will NOT be spent anywhere in KC. Do better. It's going to be fun watching you and Frankie scramble after "Jackson County property tax revenues were substantially lower than expected" and you try to blame it on everyone and everything but yourselves.

Are all of these black businesses? I know Gates is, so why not help the ones who need help that pay more money to stay in businesses under the comrade Quinton Lucas regime? Chains bring in the money too. Lose cheesecake factory and you will really suffer on the Plaza.

COVID is real but so is bankruptcy. Q has screwed KCMO.

Extra Crispy Colonel said...

@3:13 Do you have access to your "neighbor's" health records ? Was your "neighbor" morbidly obese ? It's the flu. The flu kills the elderly, people with preexisting health conditions, and individuals who are overweight. At this time 39 million people are feeding themselves out of food pantries because they're jobless, penniless, and soon to be homeless because state and local governments are locking everything down. The economic devastation that these hysterical measures have already caused is nauseating to even consider. It's the fucking flu.

Why isn't Totally Nude on this? The breast and legs are delicious. Someone is going to pay for that oversight.

Anonymous said...

Yes...his wife showed us his records. He was not obese at all. He was not elderly, and it was not the flu. Now...where would you like to meet to review the records, you ignorant fool? Tell me where and dont chicken out.

Lots of CHUDS who barely wipe their own asses properly waxing all intellectual of this novel virus.

The insane overconfidence of the average American clod is truly something to behold.

@2:27pm Assistant Crack Whore:

Yes, several. I have seen the dead bodies of many who had been young and healthy, or older and healthy who succumbed to covid after months’ long struggle. The families are devastated.

Believe what you want. I’m sick of it. Those of us who bust our asses to keep the rest of you alive at the risk of our own lives and families are wearing thin.

As far as I’m concerned, you can sit and spin. I don’t have the extra energy to waste on your B.S. anymore.

Q: The one number that Lucas will never call out and be responsible for?

A: H168!!!

(H is for homicide)

Quinton Clueless is a failure that tries to ride the fence while trying to defund the police during a homocide crisis. I bet that family that kcpd found their missing kids are glad they were there to help. KC has a 1 party goverment that dont serve everyone. I guess diversity in representation is just a flavor of diversity that dont matter. QClueless & co. Need the boot.

Go drink some more Kool aide..wow.
