O'Rourke's Has Reopened
I received two emails from complete strangers today (thanks!) telling me that the famed O'Rourke's Diner in Middletown, CT has reopened after a fire devastated the place in the Summer of 2006. The 18-month effort to rebuild was the result of hefty fundraising and local support (sound familiar?). Looks like a road trip is in order to get my hands on a steamed bacon cheeseburg patty. Central Connecticut is the epicenter of the steamed burger phenomenon and Ted's Restaurant of Meriden is featured in my film Hamburger America.
