Happy-Hour Hit list: Gladstone
North of North Kansas City and south of the northern edge of Kansas City, Gladstone is one of the 2008 All-America City Award winners. This distinction was bestowed upon the nine-square-mile community because of its first-rate neighborhood revitalization, not because of the killer drink specials. • The Hideout (6948 North Oak Trafficway, 816-468-0550). You might miss this bluesy bar that’s in a strip mall off the city’s main drag. From 3 to 6 p.m., enjoy $2 Bud, Bud Light and Miller Lite draws and $2.25 domestic bottles. After that, domestic pitchers are $6 for the rest of the night.• The Office Bar & Grill (6825 North Oak Trafficway, 816-569-3072). All day and night, sip $2.50 domestic bottles, $3.50 import bottles and $4.50 PBR pitchers at a bar hosting weekly karaoke, open mics and a live Internet radio show.
