At the new Screenland Crossroads: Ms. Pac-Man, fries and zombies — nerdtastic

Screenland Crossroads kicks up the fun with video games and a stocked bar. Oh, there’s a movie theater, too. This is for my movie buffs, my comic book fanatics, my all-night gamers. Someone like me, who rocks Luigi T-shirts and Sailor Moon buttons, fits right in here. After all, Super Mario’s Boo and a Harry Potter Platform 93/4 poster grace the walls, and images of gamer favorites are plastered on the bar alongside the arcade.

Roasterie Factory Cafe perks up your happy hour

Friday nights when the work week ends are usually about cocktails, but the Roasterie Factory Cafe’s coffee happy hour is the perfect way to jump-start your weekend. The Roasterie’s Leawood location is lovely when you’re out shopping in the burbs. And the Brookside location is hustle and bustle. But the Factory has more of a lounge vibe.
