UMKC keeps expanding. So where does this influx of college kids go when they want to get wasted in the middle of the week? A great many of them swarm to Ernie Biggs Dueling Piano Bar in Westport. (You might remember it as the old Have a Nice Day Café.) Why there and not, say, a dubstep party? Because it is extremely prudent from a financial perspective. On Wednesdays, a $5 cover gets you $1 domestic drafts and $1 well drinks until the place closes at 1:30 a.m. The pianists play today's hits: Cee Lo Green's "Fuck You," then Fun's "We Are Young." A girl in a very short dress throws her hands in the air — she wants to dance to this one. Boys in pastel-colored khakis talk loudly. In the corner, a barback scoops ice into clear-plastic cups, over and over and over, like an assembly-line worker. "Five vodka tonics," somebody shouts at the bartender. "Five dollars," he replies. If only life after college were so simple.
