Meanwhile, out in LaBarge
The Moondance before its departure last year. (amNY file)
Speaking of diners, we were perusing the Casper Star Tribune this morning (but how do you stay informed?) when we came across this:
Finally, the Moondance Diner is starting to resemble a diner again
The new foundation is poured, the walls are up, and the barrel-ceiling roof is being installed in Wyoming's newest dining icon -- the famed Moondance Diner that relocated from New York City to this tiny town in southwest Wyoming last summer.
Apparently, things are proceeding apace with the plan to bit by bit relocate all the cool parts of New York City to the mountainous west.
The article details all the work going to getting the diner up and running in Wyoming, including helping it to recover from a 2,000+ mile long journey and a harsh winter in the Rockies.
The new owners hope to open the joint in June, and are adding more seats and this choice detail,
"A "NYC" subway facade will be constructed over the front entrance to keep in line with the New York ambiance."
Actually, all that probably symbolizes is that the place will be dirty, the service slow, and patrons will defecate in the aisles.
