The concept of gathering with coworkers was innovated by the Vikings, who would ruthlessly loot a conquered city's food stores, then go to a neighborhood bar and complain about the marketing department. Uphold after-hours tradition with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of classic bar fare at The Office Dueling Piano Bar & Lounge. This spirited spot offers a menu of hunger-slaying noshables including grilled wings ($6), oysters on the half shell ($7), and the meaty signature burger ($7.50). The liquid-leaning can sample a bartender-crafted beverage or a bottled brew to fill anatomical aquifers. Satisfying sips and savory snacks are served to the sweet sounds of dueling pianists, answering gloved-slapped challenges every Friday and Saturday. Ensconced on West 8th Street, The Office is a convenient walk from many real offices masquerading as downtown bars.
- With its new and improved space, The Office will offer an expanded menu, as well as live entertainment featuring "Dueling Pianists," who will perform at 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. – Phil Anderson, the Topeka Capital-Journal
