Shopping Under the Influence 

When you face the hordes of shoppers and the reality of your bank account, yeah, you're going to require a few drinks to get through Black Friday. But the shopping gods understand this and have thoughtfully placed bars near outlet stores.

When you need a break — and you will need a break — at Oak Park Mall, get to Saints Pub + Patio (9720 Quivira in Lenexa, 913-492-3900), where you can celebrate with half-price wine and champagne.

At the Legends in Kansas City, Kansas, you don't even have to leave the shopping center to decompress. Yard House (1863 Village West Parkway, 913-788-4500) offers half-price appetizers during happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. and beer floats that will make you forget about shoving that woman who got your Xbox.

And, finally, after a long day of shopping at Town Center in Leawood, the soft lights, minimalist furniture and affordable cocktails call at the Wxyz Bar at the Aloft Hotel (11620 Ash, 913-345-9430). A couple of Jack and Cokes should provide you with just enough energy to lug those bags in from the car.
