Weekend Roundup

Time period 12/28/2008 - 1/3/2009 (last edit 1/7/2009)

The Weekend Roundup feature was delayed while we caught up on some of our other blog posts. It draws from some of our postings during this past week. It's purpose is a quick summary and one area of the blog where we usually don't include map links or pictures. At times we may include other items here not making the blog that may be of interest to our readers. We'd like to hear your comments or suggestions.

It was our goal this week to re-visit a diner we hadn't been to in a while. Here's the list:
Monday - Norm's
Tuesday - Tin Man and Dave's Diner
Wednesday - Al Mac's
Thursday - Shawmut Diner

Friday was the start of our road trip. Our first stop was at a diner we had not visited before--Collin's Diner. The route continued through New York, New Jersey and into Pennsylvania. Melrose Diner was our last stop of the night.

At the top of our list for diner visits on Saturday was the Mayfair Diner. From there we went to the future Manheim Diner. We visited other diners in between, however Saturday ended at the Capitol Diner in Harrisburg.

Sunday's wrap-up will be in another blog entry.

There were no news reports of any classic diners being demolished, constructed, installed, moved, or sold. Please let us know if we've missed something diner related happening this past week.
