Now you have plans for the weekend

You need plans. Fat City has a recycle bin full of listings. In this post, all our problems are solved.

There is no work, there is no outdoors — there are only NCAA basketball games this weekend. As such, you need to find a hi-def television and a bucket of beers to enjoy watching your chances of winning the office pool get slimmer and slimmer.

Charlie Hooper’s in Brookside is a good bet with 20 beers under $3.50 (outside happy hour and other specials). Its Web site has a pretty sweet beer menu search engine.

The Granfalloon on the Plaza has $1.75 domestic drafts and well drinks for $2.25 during happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. Sliders, steak bites and other appetizers are $4.95.

Challengers Sports Bar and Grill in Overland Park has $3 Bacardi drinks on Friday and $2 cheladas, $4.50 Natty Light pitchers and $3.99 chili dogs on Saturday and Sunday. 

Jaywalkers Sports Bar and Grill has 25 cent hot wings on Saturdays, $2.50 well drinks and $3.25 bottled beers.

For those who aren’t concerned with basketball, Em Chamas’ Third Fridays

is a celebration of cocktails and capoeira. Brazilian dance-fighting

exhibitions accompany meats from the Brazilian grill and caipirinhas

(cachaca and lime) on Friday, March 19. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. on

the outdoor patio, weather permitting. Call 816-505-7100 for
