- $10 for admission for one to Halloween on the Hill with entry to six bars and two drinks (a $20 value)
On October 26 from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m., six bars in Martini Corner will each follow a different horror-film theme, providing the spooky ambience for Halloween partygoers. Each guest will receive two drink tickets to be used at any of the six bars. All bars will feature a DJ and the evening includes a costume contest with the chance to win prizes.
The disparate sounds of softly clinking wineglasses, cheering sports fans, and rhythmic dance beats simultaneously emanate from Kansas City’s eclectic entertainment district, Martini Corner. With six locally owned hot spots ranging from Velvet Dog, an upscale martini bar and DJ lounge, to Haus, a German sausage joint with European beers on tap, Martini Corner offers something for revelers of all kinds. Free parking keeps this thriving neighborhood hub accessible.
It’s hard to make new friends in a park; but, thanks to KC Crew, friendships have been blossoming all over Roanoke Park, Parade Park, and Penn Valley Park. The secret to their success is rec leagues, in which players compete in kickball, flag football, soccer, softball, and sand volleyball, a beachy sport far preferable to speed eating shells. The organization provides umpires, a game schedule, and a $100 credit at eight local bars awarded to the winning team each week. And after the sun goes down, the organization offers more in-depth studies of the area nightlife through bar crawls, themed to celebrate holidays such as St. Patrick’s Day or simulate a zombie apocalypse.
