Like Mel said, this is a fundraiser. My husband and I did this a year ago. We wanted to support Discover Jefferson City, and we wanted to experience the ride. It was great. I encourage others to do it this year. In past years it was so popular they sold out.
When I read the comments people have made about this event, I suspect that the other posters have a problem with me and with people like me who think this was a worthwhile thing to support. People don't think twice about spending over $100/person at a concert, professional sporting events, casinos, college games, etc. But God forbid that the CVB or Chamber should sponsor an event that costs $100, because then they are the evil empire.
Some of you guys are a self fulfilling prophesy. You wine and moan about how awful it is here, no one wants to live here, there's nothing to do, blah, blah, blah. But when someone tries to do something to make Jefferson City better (like the Discover Jefferson City Foundation) and you wine and moan about what they are doing and how they are doing it. Who on earth would consider moving here when there's a bunch of cry babies posting the stuff you guys post on this forum. You make all of us look bad. Shame on you.
DD7, why do you say Gov. Nixon passed a bill to tear down the old MSP site? There are 142 acres on the site, the original master plan showed a campus of office buildings, a campus of retail/hotel/restaurants, and other things, with the most historically significant buildings restored. This newest plan to build a new state office building should be quite doable without destroying any historical buildings.
We absolutely need to keep the historic buildings on the site.
To the News Tribune, you need to have a permanent link to the 2001 Master Plan for the MSP site, adopted by the MSP Redevelopment Commission. I am sure you can pull that off. It would assist people in understanding what was planned for the site.
Well, let's try and discuss the content of the article, shall we? It sounds like an interesting book. Usually books like this are expensive, but it does cost a lot to publish historical books, especially if there are lots of photos.
I'm looking forward to getting it. Jerena Giffen wrote The House on Hobo Hill, in 1964, which was the history of Jefferson City schools up to that point. I'm not sure you can find a copy to buy now.
Michelle Brooks does a great job writing for the News Tribune.
I've heard good things about Nick's, but haven't gotten there. I've also heard that the golf course over by the Katy Trail Trailhead has good food.
Hopefully I'll get to both places this season.
JCLifer, I agree with you, that mural is bad. But this B & B gets a lot of business from the Katy Trail. And people bike over the Missouri River on the Pedestrian/Bike bridge and they don't see the mural.
This B & B has a great reputation with bicyclists who bike the Katy Trail. I think the new owners are going to maintain that great tradition.
JCLifer, have you ever biked on the Katy Trail? It really is special. And a lot of people are planing trips on it now and looking forward to biking over the Missouri River to Jefferson City and spending the night, eating at a local restaurant, experiencing the local flavor of our community. The kind of traveler that is attracted to our community will love staying at a B & B like the Cliff Manor, and they will love places like Paddy Malone's, Arris Pizza, Prison Brews, O'Donohue's, The Mission, Yo Yums, all the neat downtown places, and everyone's favorite, Central Dairy.
This woman's bread is so good. I buy 2-3 loaves and freeze it for later. The only bread we eat when the Lincoln Farmers' market is operating is Renee's.
