Come on in for a tasty breakfast of pancakes, bacon, and toast, coffee and orange juice! After breakfast, Executive Director Chris Dobbs will share his presentation, "Wagon Wheels and Stainless Steel: The Architecture of the American Diner". He will trace the architecture of the American diner from wagon to Pullman car, streamliner, and eventually rocket. Notable West Hartford diners will be included in the presentation. Dobbs has been a fan of diners for many years and recently published an article on diners for Connecticut Explored magazine.
