LaBarge Moondance Diner - LaBarge, WY

A year ago yesterday, the diner left its long standing home at 6th Ave and Grand Street in New York City, bound for LaBarge, Wyoming. It was another case of the land below the diner being worth more than the building or the memories it contains. We found an article stating that parcel of land was one of three properties in a package bought by a developer. Purchase price was about thirty-three and a half million dollars. The diner itself sold for seven thousand five hundred dollars.An article about the diner's reopening appeared here. Though delayed, the diner is expected to open in September.

You might wonder where the nearest other diner is located? About one hundred fifty-five miles southwest is the recently restored and reopened Road Island Diner. We just noticed they have a new website.
