Maybe it’s the return of Kent Roosevelt’s annual Beatle mania fund raiser that is going on this weekend or maybe it’s just a little nostalgia creeping in but either way as we said goodbye to the Old Red Diner this afternoon I kept hearing the Beatles lyrics playing over in my head — There are places I remember… If you haven’t had a chance to drive down Water Street today, the old red diner is officially no more. Demolition contractors were on site first thing this morning and by this afternoon the site was essentially cleared. As of 3 pm they were scooping up the remnants off the ground but I’d guess that by nighfall there will be nothing left of the old diner except memories.
There are places I remember all my life,
Though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain.
All these places have their moments
Of lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I loved them all.
And if you’re in the mood for a little mop top tribute go see 1964. I saw it last year and I swore I was watching John, Paul and Ringo.
Looking for something to do this weekend, don’t miss “1964” … The Tribute on February 7th at 8 pm at Roosevelt High School. Doors open at 6:15 pm.
The tickets are $20 presale or $25 at the door.
