Rack Daddy's, Independence

We took a couple of seats at the bar populated by older, blue-collar men. B needed to break a large bill but was worried it might be too early. “Oh, it’s no problem,” the bartender laughed. “We opened at 6am and those guys have been slamming back beers all morning. I have plenty of change.”

We noticed that one customer had a metal claw for a hand. There was also a claw machine against one wall. Unfortunately the photo opp never happened. :)
