Fairway, Kansas Stroud's Chicken Shack FINALLY Earns Demolition

TKC double bonus crypto (redeemable nowhere) for any old school denizens who can tell us the restaurant that occupied the space BEFORE the chicken king flew the coop.

Good enough link tease for tonight . . .

Former Stroud's building in Fairway is coming down - Kansas City Business Journal

About 18 months after Stroud's vacated its home in Fairway, the building that housed the famed maker of pan-fried chicken is being razed for a new multitenant project. Earlier this week, bulldozers started taking down the red-brick and metal facade of the location at 4200 Shawnee Mission Parkway, where Stroud's had been for more than 10 years, the Shawnee Mission Post reports.

I don't remember the name, but wasn't it a bakery of some sort before Strouds?

Wasn't there a murder there many years ago when it was called something else? I believe a worker was shot.

I remember the one of the cooks enjoyed fucking the chickens before he threw them in the frying pan. Sick bastard. Warning: Never eat the gravy at a chicken place.

From the KC Star, when they used to care about crime victims of all races --

Derrick Wayne Davis, 55, was paroled from the Winfield Correctional Facility to Missouri on Jan. 19, 2011. He was convicted of murder and aggravated battery for his role in a robbery at Waid’s Restaurant in Fairway on Feb. 26, 1983. Brian Christian, a 16-year-old cook, was killed. Marion Holt, the night manager, was wounded. Police said one of the robbers opened fire when Holt couldn’t open a safe. A second defendant, Preston E. Jones, 48, was paroled in 2005.

^^ Face it. Look in the mirror. You don't care because you're embarrassed by the facts.

Sounds like somebody touched 9:29's fragile emotions. Seek a safe space now, assume the fetal position and suck your thumb.

The food was always better at the Stroud's in the Northland anyway.
Thaat's why the location is always so busy.

how about 85th street?

why not a life sentence? a lifetime penalty for a lifetime taken. But you see the victim's expected lifetime of 70 more years, was much longer than criminals short length of his sentence.


So its about "1/3 a of lifetime penalty for each full lifetime you take. So life is on sale to murderers. Carry a Glock!
