Port Fonda: You liked this. Also, for five extra dollars on your tab, you can order a round of beers for the kitchen staff, so make sure to add that.
Westport Cafe and Bar: Get the salmon. Also, they have Fernet.
Beer Kitchen: Get a burger and a stout on nitro. Also, they have Fernet.
Gambal's Social Club: Try the tinnies, not the taps. The gopher pinball is fun!
Buzzard Beach: Your kind of dive, and they have pinball, but it's right under the AC so bring a jacket.
Minibar: A little bit of a walk, but fun for a beer and some pinball.
Ale House: Disintegrating tacos. No.
Komatsu Ramen: Gringos trying to make noodles. No.

Update: you can also start from the Leawood Aquatic Center and either run south to I Lan park, or north which takes you across the state line, for bragging rights.

Bohanan's Bar -- nice and chill, just don't get the charcuterie, it's saltier than hell. Great place to start out the night with a beer and bar food. (They also have Fernet.)
Acenar -- grab a beer (or two) and a southwest salad here, to start the night off.
Esquire Tavern -- hit or miss. Sometimes it's full of hipsters and sales people trying to impress clients ... or other sales people. But it's a pretty good spot and the management is really wonderful. You just need to hit it on a slow, chill night. Also, they have Fernet, so plan accordingly.
The Local Bar -- okay sometimes this is good, sometimes not. They have Fernet and they know how to use it. It's full of genuine people who don't bother you if you don't feel like talking. But who will happily bother you if you're into it.
Tickets Sports Bar -- let's just put it this way. You got a chicken caesar salad, and the chicken was from a can. Yes, really. No. Really.
Drink -- overpriced and boring. Okay in a pinch, but not a place to spend the night. Also, the guy at the end of the bar is telling the bartender that it's "not fair that you dressed that way at <some place> and you don't here." Ick. Like, I'm starting to think I should slide a napkin across the bar with "do you need help" written on it. Oh god. Oh god, no. He manages the bar, and a bunch of others in town. Oh ick. Oh god, ick. Push the button.
Leapin' Lizard Pub -- how is this place still in business? It *should* be cool but it's awful. Especially the music. They must advertise in the magazines that hotels put in every room.

So, they basically only have a six-pack each of two different local beers. The rest is every flavor possible of Bud, Coors, Miller, PBR. But the staff is friendly, and it's been a while since you had a PBR, so just pretend you're a hipster on Valencia street. Maybe grow a handlebar mustache -- and not just for a costume party.
You'll find yourself looking forward to going back. Especially on Wednesday, for karaoke night.

Fun place, and once you met some old hippies going to a flaming tuna show, who were fun to chat with. You meet fun people here. The unknown awesomeness (though actually this year we saw some people here just for this) is that the night before the Macy's Xgiving Day Parade they have to drag all the floats up to the starting point. They do it some time after nine. And if you're drinking here that night, you have a front row preview.
