Comings and goings

- Chief Executive magazine (yes, there is such a publication) selected Alan Mulally as CEO of the Year. Mulally is a 1969 graduate of the University of Kansas with undergraduate and graduate degrees in aeronautical and astronautical engineering.

- Tomorrow is a big day in Kansas City--the two Trader Joe locations open in our cowtown. The Missouri side location is at Ward Parkway Center and the Kansas location is at 119th and Tomahawk Creek Parkway.

- Also in the 119th Street corridor, there still is no confirmation that Oklahoma Joe's will go into the old TGIFriday's location.

- U2 invades the Midwest on Sunday with a stop in St. Louis at Busch Stadium. Check back in this space for a concert review next week.

- While bottled water sales have gained in the U.S., far more American consumers drink carbonated soft drinks than water. In 2010, per capita beverage consumption showed soft drinks in first (44.7 gallons), bottled water in second (28.3 gallons) and beer in third place (20.8 gallons.) Both soft drinks and beer declined from 2005 levels while water increased. (Source: Advertising Age)
