Now this bar was a pleasant surprise. Some friends opted to spend our Friday night bender here, and the name alone made me want to put a fork in my eye. It immediately summoned images of annoying JoCo snobs and an endless sea of pool tables. INSTEAD, Scoreboards is a nice, dark, somewhat divey bar with good food and big cheap beers. The wait staff was very attentive and tolerant of our drunken idiocy. There was karaoke the Friday we were there, and it was the good kind – fun drunk karaoke, none of this “serious wannabe the next country western
American Idol” crap.

For having to put up with a bunch of people that look like (and have the mental capacity of) Barbie and Ken, this place wasn’t half bad. We had a birthday party there, got trashed, and threw peanuts all over the place, and they not only didn’t kick us out, they gave us a good deal on the total bill. There’s semi-outdoor pool tables and seating, indoor DJ (most memorable for the excellent alternative music played), and a full menu of food that’s only safe to eat if you have very low blood pressure, no cholesterol whatsoever and an excellent tolerance for MSG and other hardcore salt additives.

Coming soon to a strip mall near you.

If you’re a forty-plus male with random bills of demoninations over twenty falling out of your pockets, welcome aboard you sexy beast. If not, enjoy the dry but cheap chicken and average sized, if even that, breasts. Boobies are great for distracting you from things like personality, overpriced pitchers, gaudy flair and any real menu to speak of. But say what you will, the wings still kick ass. The Overland Park location is the best of the three, and come in the evening if you wanna see their A-game. For the most faux-flirt time, sit at the bar, and it helps to pretend you’re a producer or a photographer. How’s the beer? It’s did-you-see-that-ass-alicious. (special thanks to “g” for paragraph two)

He’s got the best damn feather boa collection I’ve ever seen. He also has Erasure remixes you can’t find ANYWHERE. He’s fabulous, and everyone loves his Queer Eye marathon parties. Bottomless Cosmopolitans for everyone!
