Live blogging from the Liberty Elm Diner

edited 10:30PM

We received word that something is in the works to mark the diner's first year anniversary. We stopped in at the Liberty Elm Diner about 2PM and asked them to share some of what they have planned.

On August 18th, the Liberty Elm will celebrate its first anniversary. Since the diner is closed on Mondays, there will be a musical variety show on August 17th.The driving force behind this event is the Liberty Elm Employees Fellowship, LLC. LEEF is made up of both employees and individuals. We'll post more details as we get them.

From the reasonably priced healthy food incorporating local or regional ingredients, to the live music, and wireless Internet access, you'll see this isn't your typical diner. On Sunday's the diner has a live music series entitled the Americana Breakfast Club. We arrived a little late for Ace Brown & the Ohio Valley Boys, but we heard the place was swingin'. Check out the diner's myspace page for information on the musical events.

This 1947 Worcester Lunch Car Company diner would have had a diner tag above the door bearing the serial #806. We'll talk about what it took to get this diner reopened in another article. Both Kip and the diner recently appeared in a segment for the Chronicle, Boston's ABC affiliate, WCVB TV Channel 5 nightly news program. Click to watch the video.

Hours: Monday - closed; Tuesday - Friday 6AM - 3PM; and Saturday and Sunday 8AM - 3PM.
