Thirsty Dawg
(620) 277-0919
301 Jones Ave
Garden City, KS
Thirsty Dawg - Of the city's hundreds and hundreds of bars, Thirsty Dawg fits right in the middle of the bell curve - a place to hit with your buddies on the way to your ultimate destination. Not the ideal spot for fabulous, drunken debauchery, but it's a good as place as any to pre-drink.

Bo's Outback Bar & Dance Club
(620) 275-8882
1917 Buffalo Jones Ave
Garden City, KS
Bo's Outback Bar & Dance Club - Think of Bo's Outback Bar & Dance Club as a guaranteed hangover. And we mean that in the best possible way. Located at [Address], it's open all night, so it's a pretty good bet that you're going to be feeling it the next morning. Enjoy the late-night debauchery, but drink lots of water and pop some Advil.

Aladdin's Cafe

Lawrence, KS
Granada Theatre, The
(785) 852-1390
1020 Massachusetts Rd
Lawrence, KS
Granada Theatre, The - The sister to the Bottleneck, the Granada hosts more local and regional bands.

Free State Brewing Company
(785) 843-4555
636 Massachusetts St
Lawrence, KS
Free State Brewing Company - Open over a decade, this is the town's "original" brewpub-that is, the first local one in over a hundred years. The ales and stouts are very good indeed, and can be drunk in an appealing building. There's just one muted TV.

Fred's Place
(620) 272-9299
2122 Jones Ave
Garden City, KS
Fred's Place - Dress up. Fred's Place isn't necessarily "formal," per se, but it's sexy and sleek; this is the kind of place where if you're dressed like a tool, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. (Probably more than a sore thumb, actually-those don't really stand out when you think about it). The point is: it's a solid place. Bring your A-game.

Red Baron Restaurant & Lounge

Lawrence, KS
Henry T's Bar & Grill - It's in a stand alone building that doesn't look fantastic.

Player's Sports Bar & Grill
(913) 268-5353
6505 Nieman Rd
Shawnee, KS
Player's Sports Bar & Grill, located at [Address], is your garden variety pub. It's not going to win any raves of "Hottest. Bar. Ever.," but it's a serviceable place to relax and unwind. Just keep your expectations grounded. And there's something to be said for beers that cost less than $14 bucks. Review of Player's Sports Bar & Grill.

By Russ Cobbe

Setting up your own home bar can be great fun when you have people over. It isn't overly expensive to get all the essentials. So what are the tools of the trade you'll need to show off to your guests?

Lemon/Lime Squeezer - This has a flat collector base with a raised pointed section in the middle with ridges. Its used to squeeze out fresh lemon or lime juice.

There are over 20 different styles of glasses from brandy to wine. Did y...
