In the News - Al Mac's Diner

Last night we had a sense this might take place. Fox25 Boston has a feature called "Diner Wednesday." The premise is Doug "VB" Goudie travels to diners in Massachusetts, interviews the owners and they put together a segment for the show. During the Wednesday morning Fox25 live broadcast, Mr. Goudie is at the diner and from time to time the anchors check in with him. He'll be chatting it up with the owners or customers along with doing a commentary on some topical event or issue. We were there on December 3, 2008 during his broadcast from the Nest Diner, in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. A brief blog entry was posted here.

Today, Mr. Goudie traveled to Fall River, Massachusetts and visited the 1950's DeRaffele built diner known as Al Mac's Diner. Fox25 has a video posted that may be viewed here.

We last visited Al Mac's, this past New Year's Eve and blogged about it here.
