People also seem to be returning to the basics with their lifestyles by rejecting the superficial, faceless, expensive and shallow, and instead embracing things that really matter.Diners really do matter to locals, travelers and any walk of life as a place to connect with our great country -- you’ll see the most wonderful cross section of customers at these dining destinations.Diners almost always feature a counter, stools and a food preparation or service area along the back wall, states the American Diner Museum, which by the way, “consider(s) every diner to be a living museum.” , features a young boy and a caring highway patrolman, at the counter of a diner in the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts (more on that later).All are worth a look, no doubt, but the best way to get the feel of a diner in going to one and soaking in the grand, but informal experience.They wasted no time ordering food while showing a close camaraderie as if they were brothers.
Clearly, many factors create a true diner but in a nutshell, "diner" is a derivative of "dining car" and “diner designs reflected the styling that manufacturers borrowed from railroad dining cars,” according to the Rhode Island-based American Diner Museum web site (I’m working on a master list NEVER BEEN DONE before (not sure why, tho) on an interracial dating blog.Back when I co-work Swirling, we created a list of interracial-friendly cities and states, and some of them were not really a surprise–Los Angeles and pretty much all of California, parts of Texas, some fly over states, and swaths of regions on the East Coast and South. So today I thought to myself, So I’m off building the MASTER IR-FRIENDLY LIST of CITIES, COUNTIES, NEIGHBORHOODS and TOWNSHIPS that you can feel free to pursue employment, real estate, and vacation spots and know for certain that no one will throw stones, harass you, or otherwise make you feel miserable.” is often associated with diners, the welcoming nature takes on, obviously, many other forms of sincere words beyond that famous phrase.
Diners, as local landmarks and unofficial community meeting places, proudly stand as the ultimate unpretentious places to have the next best thing to a homemade meal -- often better, if a talented chef works on the premises.
