Owners, friends and fans of the Liberty Elm Diner are gathering tomorrow night to watch the Liberty Elm episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on the Food Network, and the public is invited. Host Guy Fieri had just dropped in for the taping last summer (where he signed the wall) when the flapjacks hit the fan regarding the owners’ overdue sales tax payments. Some agreement has been achieved and they are still in business and that is worth celebrating right there. The television show airs at 10pm on Monday for those who can’t get out. For those who want a party head down to the Everyman Bistro and with live music starting at 8:30pm (and continuing after the show airs) courtesy of the Killdevils, Lucky 57, and Mark Cutler and Friends.
Party 8:30pm (show 10pm) Everyman Bistro, 311 Iron Horse Way, 751-3630
Anyone have any idea if they are going to reopen? They closed abruptly back in January. A post on their Facebook page said the would be “closed for the next few weeks due to an unforeseeable emergency”. There’s nothing online or any news reports regarding why or if they are permenantly closed.
Yelp has a few reviews from this past week, which seems odd since it is supposed to be closed? And their website/blog is “down for maintenance.” Never a good sign. Did they ever pay off all their back taxes?
