More Independence Missouri grooviness

This is the original pizza and pub in my home town. Lots of birthday parties were held here. I went to the location closer to my house, but this one still stands and operates today. I can't say the interior decor is my favorite, it's dark early 70's wood, but I love their pizza and there are so many memories here... The big plus was that it was by Cool Crest Mini Golf and pool. They are still around, too, and that will be my next post! Stay tuned.

18 and counting Thanks, all you followers!

The Katz Drug Store on the square in Independence was exactly like this one. I wish Katz, Woolworths and Kresge's were still around. Alas, none are. However, there is a soda fountain and lunch counter in the old drugstore there that Harry Truman worked in that serves the old time favs. This building is now Ophelia's a high end restaraunt.
