curiousKC | When Sutera's Restaurant Was a Sports Betting Hub

Years ago in Brookside, Sutera's Restaurant was a popular joint that served hot Scicilian food with an even hotter side of sports gambling. Located where Michael Forbes Bar & Grille now stands, Sutera's was a clubhouse of sorts for some of Kansas City's most high profile mob figures.

I wish they were back. Italians knew how to take care of blacks. Nobody screwed with the "North End". Sad they're gone. Now the only "mobs" left are those burning and looting. You know, the blm kind. I was never in fear of entering a restaurant I knew was "protected or connected" if I was there to eat. Lived North of the river near those guys and never felt the need to "carry". Now, I don't leave the house without iron. Even mowing, I have a piece. While I hate to see it come to that, I am sort of secretly ready to let the shit hit the fan and get this thing sorted out.

Brookside has it's share of shootings and a lot of robbings by those a few blocks east. They just hide it and put a BLM or gay pride sign in their yard where every event took place. Check out the youtube videos of who shot who in brookside. Not one was KKK or Aryan nation, or any group BLM opposes. But you could never tell that by the all lives matter signs in their yards. They must not like white folk ( the most victims.)

Those old Italian guys fucked a lot of teenaged boys in that place after hours.

It's quite well known among older KC residents.

That also explains why there are always more than two cars in the parking lot of Cascone's on North Oak - can't be the slop they call "food".

The pizza sucked. it was like a pile of slimmy slop on top of under cooked bread.
The only thing that sucked worse was the half-wit Dego's posers.
