Wouldn't it be nice if the pace of life were more the speed of Rydell High School and if a chocolate shake during a ride in your convertible was an adequate date? If all you needed to carry with you on your night out was a plastic comb or a red lipstick instead of a BlackBerry, condoms and your maxed-out credit card? Celebrate the carefree side of a turbulent era tonight during Sock Hop at the Brick (1727 McGee, 816-421-1634). Swing with cocktail specials of Pink Ladies, Manhattans and martinis, take advantage of extended kitchen hours (until midnight), and twist to DJ Scotti Fletcher's classic '50s and '60s hits. The good times and great oldies start at 10 p.m. Shoes allowed.
