Topeka Sports Cabaret

4216 N.E. Seward Ave., Topeka

It doesn't get any better than sports and strippers, and Topeka Sports Cabaret features both.

Hatfield's at West Ridge Lanes

1935 SW Westport Dr., Topeka

Take a break from the bowling lanes -- or a family feud -- and enjoy the big-screen TV with a cold beer or mixed drink. Hatfield's full-service bar -- with food close by -- is the perfect place for keglers and sports fans. If the younger family members get restless, send them down the concourse to McCoy's Arcade. Hatfield's and McCoy's, get it?



Gage Center Bowl

4200 SW Huntoon, Topeka

Whether you're looking for recreation or refreshment -- or both -- you won't be disappointed at Gage Center. Quench your bowling thrist with an ice-cold beer or mixed drink, and don't forget the full-service snack bar. If bowling isn't your game, check out a pool table or the arcade. Special packages for parties of all kinds, fundraisers and corporate events.



El Mezcal III

5301 S.W. 21st, Topeka

Margarita lovers have spoken, and their choice is El Mezcal III. Of course, it doesn't hurt that margaritas are 99 cents on Tuesdays and Fridays, and the food - especially the cheese dip - is irresistible. Catch the big game on TV in the bar area and check out the bottled beer specials and draft beers. And don't forget: El Mezcal No. 4 is at 511 S.W. Topeka Blvd.



Gage Bowl North

200 E Highway 24, Topeka

Bowling and beer are almost inseparable, and Gage North's bar won't disappoint there, but mixed drinks are available, too. Let a lane waitress save you steps and a sticky approach. Order something tasty from the snack bar and point the kids toward the arcade.



Hooters

6100 SW 10th, Topeka

Hooters' decor is rustic beach scene, delightfully tacky yet unrefined, with Christmas lights up year round and pictures of different celebrities. This is a place to get beer and chicken and look at hot girls. Children are welcome. There are kids menus.



Riegel's 20's West

901 S.W. Fairlawn Road, Topeka

The strip-mall space got a facelift two years ago and is a great place to catch big games. Just about everything looks good on the two new 60-inch HDTVs. (There are four other TVs, too.) The 20's West replicates much of the original place but with food. Don't overlook the 10-ounce KC Strip with salad, baked potato and roll for only $10. (Updated 7.22.09)
