It's been months since I've posted, and I'm sad to say this latest post is reminiscent of my last.
Another diner has closed.
I read with dismay that Al Macs, an iconic fixture of Fall River, had closed on Monday. How did I miss this? Why did I not know that this really cool place was going to shut its doors?
There's a lot of coverage in the news, as it seems that Al Macs is yet one of many in a growing list of diners closing.
So, support your local business - that diner downtown, the non-chain restaurant (although, to be fair, most chains are run by local business people and are paying sizable franchise fees) the farmer's market, the local hardware store, the drive-in. Yes, most times these places are more expensive. They are your neighbors who are trying to make a go of it.
