Even for a popular restaurant like the new Bo Lings in City Market (20 East Fifth Street, 816-423-8036), attracting the masses on certain days can be a challenge. "Sunday nights and Monday nights are our slowest evenings," says manager Taryn Kelly. In an attempt to lure early-week homebodies, the newest Bo Lings has lengthened happy hour
on those two days. Specials include $5 Stoli martinis, $3 well drinks, $5 glasses of wine, $2 domestics, $2.50 imports and certain draft beers for $2 to $3. A plethora of appetizers are also available for $4. The prices are good throughout the restaurant from 3 p.m. to close on Sundays and Mondays. Munch on crispy calamari at the bar, on the patio or in a corner booth. Just don't try to take it home. "You can't take it to go," Kelly says. "You've gotta hang out."
