HILL
2010
THE UNIVERSITY DAILY KANSAN
I
have lived in Lawrence since I was three,
so sometimes I forget how great we have it
here. My Thanksgiving trip reminded me
that many cities dont have the amenities Im
used to. Sure, they have restaurants, but I keep
weird hours. You cant get a pizza delivered at 1
a.m. in Wichita.
Even during normal business hours, I
couldnt satisfy my craving for a Smoke Burger
and truffle fries from The Burger Stand at The
Casbah. And Thanksgiving was a lot less fun
than a normal Thursday, when $2.25 schooners
draw big crowds to Louises Downtown. Some
of my favorite places to eat and drink are found
only in Lawrence.
Top of the Hill recognizes the businesses
that, according to KU students, make life in
Lawrence so good. Our marketing team dis-
tributed ballots on campus, and students could
also vote at KansanGuide.com. When voting
closed, nearly 600 of you had voted.
The voting used write-in ballots, so all
Lawrence businesses in each category were
candidates. This issue features the top three
choices in 36 categories.
WHAT IS TOP OF THE HILL?
Top of the Hill is a yearly special section that highlights students choices for the best of
businesses around Lawrence. Nearly 600 students voted in this years contest.

By Victoria Pitcher
editor@kansan.com
Chris Hoffman swiftly clears a table after two
satisfied customers leave. Before finally sitting
down, he offers me something to drink; it is
right after lunch hour, and he seems to be taking
a break for the first time since he began his shift.
Hoffman is the general manager at The Burger
Stand, 803 Massachusetts St., which was voted
Top of the Hills Best Burger.
The Burger Stand started out as a sepa-
rate business inside Dempseys Irish Pub on
Vermont Street. It was just a bar with a kitchen
that needed fixed up, Hoffman said. Owners
Simon and Codi Bates and Robert and Molly
Krause moved in and sold their first burger on
Feb. 4, 2009 in the back corner of Dempseys.
What started out as a business, with a staff
of only four, quickly began to outgrow its small
corner at Dempseys. Customers were catching
on to these unique burgers and soon enough
The Burger Stand landed a prime location on
Massachusetts Street.
Michelle Wilson, a sophomore from
Lawrence, has been a loyal customer to The
Burger Stand since it began inside Dempseys.
Wilson and her boyfriend ate at The Burger
Stand on their first date, and eating there has
since become a weekly tradition for them. The
burgers are absolutely amazing, and they are all
really unique, Wilson said, You cant find a
burger made that way anywhere else.
Unique may be the exact reason The Burger
Stand was voted best burger in Lawrence. With
items on the menu like the Fire Burger, the
Black and Blue, and even a vegetarian burger,
the Falafel, the Burger Stand gives customers
more flavor and variety.
What some people may not know is that the
food at The Burger Stand is almost complete-
ly natural and handmade. Everything except
for the fries and onion rings are either made
from scratch or bought locally. According to
Hoffman, the burgers contain few preservatives
and are topped with healthy options such as
micro greens instead of lettuce. However, por-
tions are in plenty; every burger is a half-pound.
The biggest bang you are getting for your buck
is portion. No one leaves here hungry, Hoffman
said.
It can be intimidating when you first order
at The Burger Stand. All items are la carte. A
wide range of food is offered other than burg-
ers such as HawtDawggs, salads, fried pickles,
beer-battered onion rings and fries. Hoffman
recommends to first timers trying the truffle
fries. They are made with truffle butter and
sprinkled with parmesan. Every other fry will
not taste the same again. You can thank me
later, Hoffman said.
Excellent service and a comfortable environ-
ment play another factor in The Burger Stands
success. Its just a feel good place to be, Wilson
said. Hoffman says friendliness and build-
ing customer loyalty are key to their success.
People come in here and talk about this place
like its been here 15 years, Hoffman said.
The Burger Stand is not only a restaurant; it
is also a bar. They serve several microbrews such
as Boulevard Wheat and Odell IPA as well as a
large selection of domestic and imported bottles.
They are open until 2 a.m. There is never a cover
at The Burger Stand and burgers are sold until
last call Wednesday through Saturday every
week. KU games play on their 65-inch screen
at the bar as well as their two 50-inch screens
in the restaurant. Tuesdays are jazz nights and
Wednesdays are karaoke nights.

Its Friday night and the beer is flowing at
Free State Brewing Company. The partisans are
dressed in their finest KUparaphernalia as they
sip on one of the eight available selections. The
beer is cold and the KU basketball teamis win-
ning all is well.
This year, the majority of KU students voted
Free State as having the best beer selection
in town. With eight to 10 home-brewed beer
choices on tap at a time, Free State offers some-
thing for everyone. In addition, the friendly
staff makes the microbrewery selections slightly
less intimidating for the inexperienced beer
drinkers.
Free State has four standard beers Ad
Astra Ale, Copperhead Pale Ale, Oatmeal
Stout and Wheat State Golden. These beers are
always available on tap and are the only beers
bottled and sold in liquor stores. Free State also
produces several specialty and seasonal beers.
According to Free State manager Debby Fey, we
can expect to see Santas Helper, Josiah Miller,
C-4 Imperial IPA and Old Backus Barley Wine
during this holiday season.
Among the Friday night crowd, Kayla
Bennett, a senior from Lawrence, can be found
enjoying her favorite brew Ad Astra Ale.
To be honest, I havent tried all of them,
but its my favorite of those I have had, Bennett
said. Ad Astra is currently among the six ales
offered at Free State. Traditionally, beer is clas-
sified into three categories: ale, lager and mixed
style. In addition to the six ales on tap, there is
also one lager and one mixed style.
For Lawrence resident Sage Warren, John
Brown Ale is better than the rest. Warren and
her coworkers meet every other Friday to talk
shop and drink good beer. When not at Free
State, Warren remains faithful to Free State
products. Customers such as Warren can find
Free State brews on tap at several locations in
Kansas. Fey indicates that the market may spill
over to Missouri as soon as spring 2011.
After Free State Brewing Company, KU
students voted 23rd Street Brewery and Old
Chicago as having the second and third best
beer selection, respectively. 23rd Street Brewery
sells 11 bottled beers and has nine of its own
brewed beers available on tap. Old Chicago has
30 beers on tap at all times and sells 100 bottled
selections.

Swaying in the crowd to the beat of the
music. The stage is feet away. The speakers
are blasting the musical magnificence as pre-
formed by the evenings act. These are expe-
riences that students may find at this years
Top of the Hill best live music venues. The
Granada is located at 1020 Massachusetts and
promotes itself as general interest venue.
We try to book all kinds of events. We
want to be a general venue. We want to be able
to have people walk in and see something dif-
ferent every night, said Granada marketing
manager Rob Shulte.
The Granada has played host to plays,
fashion shows, comedy acts, spoken-word
performances and art shows.
These are all on top of what it
is mostly known for amongst
students, being a music
venue.
The Granada was originally
built in 1928 as a movie the-
ater. Since then it has been
renovated and repurposed into
the live venue that students
know today. The building is
oriented so that the audience
is close to the performers to
create a sense of being a part
of the show.
You get to be that much closer to the
band. It is just a much more intimate setting,
said Alex Freeze, a sophomore from Phoenix,
Arizona.
The Granada has been a place for student
bands to start. Chris Salavitch, a freshman
from Lansing, Kansas, is looking forward to
his bands first performance at the Granada in
the Next Big Thing Tour.
Ive seen shows at The Granada but now
I get to be on the stage there. It is so cool!
Salavitch said .
The management at the Granada is proud
to be recognized by students as being part of
Top of the Hill.
I feel like between myself, my boss Mike
Logan, night manager Cameron Lauer, we put
in a lot of work and energy. Sometimes we
dont know if people do anything but come to
the shows, so to be voted Top of the Hill feels
pretty awesome, said Shulte.
Liberty Hall is different than the Granada
in that it has weekend movie showings on top
of other events. It also offers a full time video
rental store.
We want to be the place that people think
of when they cant find a movie on Netflix or
at Blockbuster, said Douglas Redding, Liberty
Hall Video Store manager.
Besides offering blockbuster movies,
Liberty Hall also has a wide selection of alter-
native and older film genres to choose from.
It is really the only place in Lawrence
you can get alternative films to see and also
to rent, said Molly Fister, a freshman from
Lawrence.
Not only does she
go to Liberty Hall to
see films, she attends
live events as well. She
prefers to go to local
venues like Liberty
Hall because they do
not just have local
bands.
Its really cool. It
has headlining shows
with people that I
know. I went to Sarah
Bareilles a couple of weeks ago, Fister said.
Liberty Hall also has deep roots in
Lawrence history. It was built in 1912 and has
been providing live venue services under dif-
ferent names since then.
We have a good intimate setting. There is
not a bad seat in the house, said Redding.
Lawrences live venues are working to bring
events for all interests. This semester brought
acts such as Tech N9ne, Matt & Kim, Ted Leo
& The Pharmacists and local music sensa-
tion Louisiana Street Band to the stage. The
Granada is preparing for their next semester
line-up.
We are not allowed to say who yet, but
next semester will be huge, said Shulte.
