KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI — Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said Friday that the city will go ahead with its reopening plan next Friday.  We spoke with local resident, Louisa Rollins, yesterday for reaction.


“Bring it on baby! These new rules, like the 6 foot thing, are a long time coming. I can’t wait to finally drink a bottle of wine and read a book at Emerald without interruption,” she said, with a glimmer of a smile. “Can we, like, keep it going forever though?”


We reached out to Emerald Lounge for comment, and received the following in return:


“We look forward to serving Louisa as long as we can stay open under these limited capacity rules. Fingers crossed we make it through the season.”
