    "Located 5 miles west of Waverly on Highway 24, Baltimore Bend Vineyard is a family owned and operated business that was started because of a love of wine and a thirst for an understanding of the winemaking process. Located in the northeastern corner of Lafayette County between the Missouri River and historic Highway 24, the area was a focal point of travel and commerce during the19th century, and lies on the path of the expeditionary company of Lewis & Clark and parts of the Santa Fe Trail. The vineyard and winery lie close to a bend in the Missouri River that legend suggests was named after a sunken boat called "Baltimore." (MissouriWine.org)
    Bissell Mansion Restaurant & Dinner Theatre
    I do declare, I do declare, there has been a murder, and you, sir or madam, can be a part of the action as it all unfurls, or just sit back and watch how the pieces all come together. Either way, meal and laughs will be provided. The former home of Captain Lewis Bissell, built in the 1820s and located in the north-side College Hill neighborhood, is now an everlasting crime scene, with homicides occurring every Friday and Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. For a fee, customers can witness the action and even take on a starring role if they so please while enjoying a four-course meal surrounded by the elegance of early St. Louis interiors, featuring large fireplaces, chandeliers and wooden doorways. The dinner menu, which comes with two glasses of wine, includes an appetizer, salad, entrée and dessert. Guests and suspects can choose from an eight-ounce strip steak, chicken Parmesan or a baked white fish served amandine for their main course. Weeknight shows are available at special group rates.
    Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery
    The phrase "comfort food" has been bandied about so much that it's become a cliché. Stale notion or not, the Blue Owl satisfies these longings in a country-diner atmosphere. Owner Mary Hostetter's Texas roots are evident in menu items such as biscuits and gravy topped with crumbled pork sausage, chicken-fried steak with country gravy and red-velvet cake. The influence of German immigrants on this region is also apparent, with German potato salad and German chocolate cake, cheesecake and pie. Even the Great Flood of 1993, whose roiling waters threatened to engulf Kimmswick, is commemorated with "levee-high apple pie."
    Boathouse
    Forest Park's Boathouse lies in the heart of the park, nestled near the art museum and zoo, making it an easy go-to for weary, hungry park visitors. The patio sits next to Post-Dispatch Lake, where paddle boaters cruise by during the summer/early fall. The menu provides options for all ages, with salads, pizzas, sandwiches and a separate kids' menu. The outdoor bar offers cold beverages for those who are waiting for a table or just want to sit outside and take in the surroundings.

Carrying on the family tradition, Floyd Bynum opened the winery in 1989. Nestled in the rolling hills of western Missouri, not far from Kansas City, Bynum Winery is a 6-acre vineyard with plans to develop over 30 acres in time.
