Happy-Hour Hit list: Casinos

When the holiday experience has sucked away the final piece of your soul, find a safe ride and get back to reality at a casino. You’ll be surprised to see how many people have the same idea. • Depot #9 at Ameristar Casino (3200 North Ameristar Drive, 816-414-7000): This bar in a railroad car has $3.50 16-ounce house microbrew draws, $3.75 16-ounce Bud Light draws, and $7.50 Skyy or Stoli chocolate martinis from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. Get down to smooth dance covers of Midnight Revue beginning at 8:30 p.m.• Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill at Harrah’s North Kansas City (1 Riverboat Drive, 816-472-7777): You’ll probably be too full for a basket of livers and gizzards, so have a domestic draw in a mason jar instead for $5.50. Or sample the Redneck, a Southern Comfort-Bacardi 151-Mountain Dew cocktail, for $10 while listening to the country rock of the John Joiner Band at 8 p.m.
