Dining With Denise Neil

Wichita restaurant where injured singer Jenny Wood works creates a front-window tribute

Don Wright still remembers when Jenny Wood turned in her application at Old Mill Tasty Shop two years ago.

Wright, who owns the longtime downtown restaurant with his mother, Mary, knew of Jenny Wood the musician but had never personally met her.

“She just walked in one day and put in an application, and I said, ‘Jenny Wood Wood?’” he said with a laugh. “She just grinned at me.”
