Messy’s plans late-night delivery from the West Bottoms
- Titus Bond
- Bond’s got big plans for the West Bottoms.
Titus Bond remembers riding high in the cab of his grandfather’s 18-wheeler as they rolled through the West Bottoms.
“We would stop at the Woodswether Cafe because the parking lot was so big. There’s not a lot of places to park an 18-wheeler. We used to try and stop at Town Topic, and he’d always get in trouble for parking in the middle of the road,” Bond says.
These days, he’s riding on four wheels only. And instead of stopping for lunch, the owner of Messy’s Birds & Brews is hoping that he can transform the former diner at 1230 Woodswether Road into the late-night delivery capital of Kansas City when he opens in early September. Bond is planning to offer 4 a.m. delivery, utilizing the West Bottoms’ highway access to downtown.
