O'Malley's 1842 Public House
The pub doesn't look like much from the outside — a small, indiscriminate building at the end of a street. But on entering, you take a bit of a trip down the rabbit hole. You walk down a squat, bending tunnel, where you're hit with a wave of muskiness. When you finally reach O'Malley's 1842 Irish Pub (500 Welt Street, in Weston, 816-640-5235), it is a sight: three vaulted limestone cellars originally built in the 1840s to store the Weston Brewing Co.'s beer. The ground-level bar serves Irish whiskeys, cocktails and nine house beers (don't miss the Cream Ale and Emerald Lager). It also has a small stage for weekend performances, which range from wistful to downright rowdy. Tonight, the Three Dollar Band, an Irish rock group, plays original material but isn't afraid to go traditional. If late nights aren't your style, brewery tours with tastings are offered Saturdays at 1, 3 and 5 p.m. See westonirish.com or call 816-640-5235 for more information.

Take Five Tours
When she was 14, Haleigh Harrold, development manager at the American Jazz Museum, got a Billie Holiday CD for Christmas. "I played that CD before school, after school, doing homework, reading, all the time. The soundtrack to my teen years was Billie Holiday," Harrold recalls. Years later, standing in front of a kiosk in the John H. Baker Jazz Film exhibition space at the American Jazz Museum (1616 East 18th Street, 816-474-8463), she rediscovered the music that inspired her. "I'm not sure why I hadn't thought to YouTube Billie Holiday, but right there at the museum was my first time ever seeing her perform, and I had a really emotional moment watching the singer that introduced me to jazz." Rediscover our city's musical legacy during the AJM's Take Five Tours on the first Thursday and third Tuesday of every month. The free, hourlong tours begin in the Changing Gallery (on display through June 1, Ella: First Lady of Song) and move through the permanent exhibit, the Blue Room and John H. Baker Jazz Film with introductions and meet-and-greets from a handful of the AJM's board members and staff. Afterward, tour participants are invited to attend free performances in the Blue Room. RSVPs are requested via e-mail at takefive@kcjazz.org or by calling 816-474-8463, ext. 238. The tours are limited to 65 people and begin at 6 p.m. free

Date Night
Trying to impress that special someone can quickly get crazy expensive. She says she wants the pricey slice of cake, made of fair-trade dark-chocolate, and you enthusiastically nod while trying to mask your nervous smile and to remember how much is in your bank account. Let's face it. You really can't afford that dessert and the two appetizers you ordered earlier — unless you're at Eden Alley (707 West 47th Street, in the lower level of Unity Temple, 816-561-5415), which has a solution for your cash-strappedness. The vegetarian-, vegan-, celiac-, and soy-friendly café is doing another of its date-night events, which allows health-conscious couples to enjoy an appetizer, two entrées and a dessert for $30 (plus tax and gratuity). That's a damn good deal, lovebirds. Seatings start at 4 p.m. and run till 9. For more information, including the restaurant's daily menu and specials, see edenalley.com. $30 (plus tax and gratuity)

Those who braved the open house for the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts might tell you that the experience could have been more agreeable. The lines were prohibitively long, and there was rain. But they'll also tell you that the Kauffman Center is something to behold. The glass-walled Brandmeyer Great Hall (the other name for the lobby) is larger than a football field, with Guggenheim-like circular walkways leading up to the balconies of Helzberg Hall and the Muriel Kauffman Theatre. If you skipped out on the grand opening, you haven't missed your chance. The center offers free, small tours (of 15 or fewer people) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Reservations are required. Call 816-994-7200 or see kauffmancenter.org. free
