The word shitkickers
, as applied to well-worn western-style boots, implies the existence of the verb to shitkick
. So what if stuffy ol' Merriam-Webster doesn't agree? UrbanDictionary.com
acknowledges the term and says shitkicking means "to kick the shit out of someone. Literally." But to most hipsters in shitkickers, shitkickin' really just means swigging PBR and shooting the shit. Doing this in a grungy bar makes the whole experience seem even more authentic. As appropriate places to shitkick in Kansas City go, Davey's Uptown Ramblers Club
(3402 Main, 816-753-1909) is at the top of the list for its cheap drinks, rustic interior and grizzled bartenders. Plus, there's usually a band playing. But on Tuesday nights when no musical act is booked, the evening is reserved purely for shitkicking — with no cover charge. Hit the bar anytime tonight before the 3 a.m. closing time and enjoy wells and domestic beers at the low price of two for $2.
