The nightlife ascendance of downtown's Power & Light District has left a lot of worthy smaller local joints nonplussed in the face of declining business. One great maneuver against insulting patrons with plastic cups of Miller Lite: actually treating customers like grown-ups by serving them beer in a glass. We tip our trucker ball caps to grown-up-friendly Northland bars such as Helen's Just Another Dive and Mark and Michelle's, but for our money, the very best neighborhood bar in North Kansas City is Moxie Bar and Grill. Featuring three pool tables, darts and video games — standard nightlife accoutrements — Moxie also boasts natural light during happy hour and some crazy all-day drink specials: $1 10-ounce glasses of domestic beer, $1 well drinks and $2 bottles of Bud and Bud Light. From 11 p.m. to 3 a.m., get Jäger bombs for $3. What may have tipped the scales for Moxie was the free Wi-Fi access — definitely not a standard feature of your workaday "old man" bar. To put it in Investor's Business Daily terms, STRONG BUY on Moxie.
