Everything is made fresh from scratch, putting it miles of open trail away from typical frozen bar food. Saddle up for a satisfying lunch such as a “twin shaft basket bonanza” of Angus butter burger smothered in steak butter ($4.49), KC cheesesteak or chicken ($6.49), fat boy buffalo chicken strips ($5.99), or several other finger-seasoning delights—all paired with a nest of golden fries.

You can strum a guitar while blowing a French horn and clinking your cymbal-knees together, but no one will pay a lick until you can play two full pianos at once. Today’s Groupon doubles your musicology with $20 worth of admission and beverages at Ernie Biggs Dueling Piano Bar for $10. Singing “Piano Man” is all well and good, but making it “Piano Men” is arguably better.

Chef Peter Grünauer rolls his apple-strudel dough thin enough to literally read a newspaper through one of its layers. This loyalty to the traditional, time-intensive methods of preparing Austrian and continental European fare can be tasted in all of the dishes at Grünauer’s restaurant, which he runs with his children Nicholas and Elisabeth. They modeled their eatery after the one their family operates in Vienna, which is why the Kansas City restaurant evokes the Old World with its brick walls and exposed overhead beams. Yet it also exudes local flavor by nestling inside a historic freight house decorated with chandeliers and mirrors.

For an authentic menu, the Grünauers rely on the expertise Chef Peter gained while owning renowned New York restaurants Vienna '79 and Fledermaus as well as meats, such as wienerschnitzel and smoked pork loin, purchased from New York–based Schaller & Weber or from local butchers. Whether the entree is a classic bratwurst or a more adventurous pale ale braised bratwurst, the generous portions cause diners to undo the top button or padlock holding their pants together.

For a sweet end to the evening, diners can savor the aforementioned apple strudel with its paper-thin layers of dough or sink their forks into the chocolate and fresh cream of a viennese sacher torte. A cherry-red espresso machine yields steaming cups of coffee by Viennese roaster Julius Meinl to accompany sweets, which guests enjoy in the dining room or on the biergarten. There, amid potted flowers and with a view of the downtown skyline, guests sip Austrian beer and wines such as Eggenberg doppelbock and Samichlaus helles, which the restaurant’s Wunderbar pours until 1 a.m. or when the moon starts snoring.

Duke's on Grand embraces its location—in the heart of Kansas City and across from the Sprint Center—by serving as a haven for passersby seeking a neighborhood setting that celebrates local sports teams from each side of the state line. As live games play on the flat-screen televisions, the bartenders slake thirsts with potent cocktails as well as a selection of draft beers that includes several locally brewed options.

The food menu also embraces this homespun vibe by featuring a number of classic comfort foods made using locally sourced meats, dairy, and produce whenever possible. Barbecued ribs smoked overnight occupy the flame-heated grill alongside burgers that will eventually be finished with everything from jalapeño-spiced ketchup to Creole-style tartar sauce. Additionally, the selection includes homestyle favorites, such as pulled-pork sandwiches and hearty wings.

The warm ambiance at Duke's on Grand mirrors the pub's neighborhood-style charm. Surrounded by exposed brickwork and jet-black walls, the grill features small tables scattered across its dark wooden floorboards. The glass-paned front walls are even capable of opening during the warmer months, creating an open-air setting that allows diners to pair their meal with breaths of the fresh oxygen that the city imports each spring.

A family-owned eatery passed down through several generations, The Beacon Tavern fits right in with the historic neighborhood it resides in. The tavern's owners and proprietors, all of whom still live nearby, emphasize that close-knit atmosphere as they serve recipes made from scratch and meats hand cut on site.

Aromas from double-cut pork chops, north-atlantic salmon, and pale-ale-battered cod fill the air as 16 draft beers and a lengthy selection of reds and whites dazzles palates. A kids' menu keeps energetic youngsters occupied with built-in games and helpful tips for convincing parents why they should be emancipated.

The tavern's main dining room accents steaming plates of food with exposed brick walls and tall wooden booths. In warm weather, The Alley seating area features alfresco dining with sights of the South Plaza neighborhood and mischievous birds dropping gum into the hair of passersby. Meanwhile, parties and meetings convene in the upstairs Monk’s Loft area.

A rainbow of men's and women's apparel and accessories populates the forest of racks inside Arizona Trading Company, where staffers buy, sell, and trade a thoughtfully curated, ever-revolving stash of gently used threads. They take in modern and vintage attire alike, scrutinizing each item to ensure that no evidence remains of the superhero who previously owned it. Handbags, shoes, and Pendleton flannels neighbor household gear, jackets, and seasonal inventory throughout the fully stocked shop. A smattering of brand-new accouterments, such as sunglasses and jewelry, interrupts the vast spread of lightly worn attire.
