Diner

Ok, let's get some history out of the way right off the bat this morning-- this diner is Worcester Lunch Car Number 818, and was built in 1949. The diner was originally situated on Forest Avenue, but in 1964 it was moved to 49 Marginal Way to make way for the Federal Building and main Post Office . In 2007, it was moved again, pretty much across the street and has been open there in Bayside since October of 2008. And now one more 'tasty tidbit' of historical trivia-- ta da! I have never-- EVER eaten here or even WALKED through its doors in all the years that I have lived in the city. Really, I have nothing against diners. I have eaten in other diners in other cities with probably just as much historical significance--just not this one. Am I planning to make it happen? No real plans. If it happens, it happens. However, with this Sunday pounding rain, it might not be a bad way to start my day.

Happy Pi Day! 3.14

  3. Ah, Pi Day! Thanks for the reminder so that I can send a greeting to all my Math teacher friends! Your photo: is it a railroad diner? Be daring; visit and enjoy the food! We have a railroad diner which is a landmark in St. Paul, MN. I've featured it on my visual st.paul blog in the past, but am too lazy to go looking for it now. Perhaps I'll post another one after I return to my home state in April. Hope you're having a cheery Sunday!

  8. Maybe we'll meet there next time. Do they have microbrews? For that matter, do they have macrobrews? Research is needed here.

  9. Methinks thou shouldst patronize this unique eatery.

    Hey, did you hear about two friends who ran into each other in your city the other day?

    Guy #1 - "Hi! Have you see Miss Portland?"

    And Guy #2 said - "Nope, I think she got railroaded out of town!
