Today we say good-bye to our favorite local diner as it closes its doors forever. Miss Albany Diner will close after today and the end of an era will come with it. Not only was this a favorite diner of ours and many of our friends and locals, but we loved bringing visiting friends and blogger buddies here as part of the “Albany Experience,” not to mention seeing our friend, Mark, ACW (Albany’s Cutest Waiter).
Doors opened at 7:00 AM this morning, so Jeffrey and I were up at 6:00 and waiting, first in line, at 6:25 am in 21 degree weather.
This is YNN (Your News Now) Channel 9 News Reporter, Megan Cruz, and her camera man set up outside the dinner. Megan interviewed me outside the diner before it opened, then interviewed my husband, Jeffrey, inside the diner after we were seated.
This was the line of patrons prior to 7:00 am. It kept growing.
Our friend, Matt, joined us at 6:55 AM. Bitch didn’t have to wait out the cold like we did!
We enjoyed our final breakfast, despite the craziness and media everywhere. I took one final picture of Mark, ACW. We said good-bye to him but promised to follow him to the next diner he will move on to.
It was sad but I’m happy we made the effort to be there one final time! I’m sorry for all of you who never got to visit us and join ud for breakfast there, but we can still drive by and see it any time! (For now.)
