Meet Me At the Mall












It most certainly wasn't going down last Saturday evening at the Metcalf South shopping mall. This is the scene at 6:30 p.m. My companion and I were killing time before watching a light romantic comedy at the Glenwood Arts theater. Only two other businesses were open- Macy's and Sears. We were lamenting the lack of excitement at the mall. We had no way of knowing, of course, that my companion would be on hand for the shootings at Ward Parkway the next day.

    this is the most boring mall i've ever seen. where are the people and more importantly, where are stores?

    Boring=good.

    But still, where are the skateboards? This would make for the best skate park ever.

    I'll be in KC next week, and I hope to get a moment for Metcalf South. With the proper headspace, there's something majestic about a place like that in the condition you describe. It's kind of an obsession, really.

    I also plan to hit the joint at 75th & Metcalf you've been talking about.
