Bottle12 Wine Bar's knowledgeable libation lecturers escort imbibers through an array of flavorful varietals. Assemble a band of wine-minded merrymakers or finally make use of at-home cloning kits to populate a Classes with Glasses course, which politely introduces pupils to three diverse wines. Each 90-minute class touches on essential vino factoids such as typical traits of specific regions, how to make effective food pairings, and more accurate methods of plotting future bottle purchases. Each pupil can complement leggy swigs with an expertly paired appetizer, chosen by the lecturer from the bar’s gourmet menu. Students enamored of a particular vintage need not adopt a glass-half-empty worldview, as additional pours of wine, beer, food, or merchandise are available for purchase. Tutorials are capped at 16 people or 32 sentient corks.
With a hodgepodge of American favorites, Kobi's Bar and Grill slings juicy cuts and cold libations to hearty appetites in the biker scene. Like a body-building orange, a bevy of meaty menu items flex juicy muscles, with fan favorites such as the Monster pork tender, a 12-ounce hand-breaded pork loin on a homemade bun ($8.49). Fire-hydrant mouths work overtime on Octane Boosters, a 12-piece artillery of buffalo sauce-soaked chicken wings paired with ranch or blue cheese dressing ($7.99, $8.99 for breaded). Enjoy a double-decker delicacy with the bacon-wrapped pork chop, featuring a 12-ounce succulent slab coddled between two pieces of smoky bacon ($13.99). For those who prefer home-cooked tastes, the chili and grilled cheese satiates stomachs with a pretzel bun and hearty concoction of spices ($5.49), and the daily cheesecake stops sweet teeth from morphing into underfed fangs.
The next time you’re at Paul & Jack’s Tavern, sidle up to the bar and ask the local sitting next to you to describe the tavern’s original owners. Following an initial smile, you’re likely to be met with a blank stare. That’s because brothers Paul and Jack founded their eponymous bar and grill all the way back in 1948—a time when North Kansas City still lacked a laid-back tavern where the neighborhood’s diverse crowd could gather for live entertainment and old-fashioned American burgers and chili.
Though the tavern’s popularity has climbed steadily in the six decades since the brothers opened their doors for business, its menu remains a testament to mid-century Americana. The dining room tends to be rowdiest around lunchtime, when crowds descend to sample footlong hot dogs, deli sandwiches, and bowls of chili still made according to a 50-year-old recipe. Later in the evening, after dinners of USDA Choice steaks and deep-fried catfish, guests can head out to the enclosed back patio and throw bouquets of hot wings at the live-music performers they most enjoy.
