This is my favorite place back home. My bathroom back home is the place where I spent a majority of my youth reading and holds a special memory in my heart. This bathroom is where I learned to first shave, and is the first place I go every morning to see what dynamic shape my hair formed into while I slept. The first step every day of my life pretty much.
This is my view from my seat at Winstead's. This small diner at the entrance to the plaza was the first place I visited in Kansas City, even before KCAI. Brass poles and a constantly running juke box make this place a warm and comfortable retreat from the daily grind. My personal favorite is the massive "Skyscraper Shake" that is served in a glass vase, topped with home made whip cream. Decent food at decent prices and in close proximity to the school. Winstead's is the restaurant that I prefer in the immediate area and I suggest a visit to the dinner if your ever in the area, no matter the time.
