The former competitive bodybuilder had hoped that his new Kansas City restaurant at 412 Delaware might open this week, even though his stretch of Delaware is still virtually impassable because of the streetcar construction in front of his venue (there is an easily accessible  parking lot in back of the building and a back door that leads directly into the bar).
