Tina's Pic Story - Colorful eatery
Tina graciously hosts the unique blog Tina's PicStory - every picture allows for 1,000 words. We merely need to capture the photo. The theme this week is Colors.
This is one of our favorite eateries, the Olympia Diner on the Berlin Turnpike (Routes 5 and 15) in Newington CT. Opened in 1952, this seems to be the last of the era of stainless-steel train car style diners. One of my favorite dishes is the corned beef hash - the best I've had anywhere.
The colors stand out especially in the neon sign - the bold red Olympia and the bright yellow Diner are combined with the green walls inside the restaurant. The fluted steel is a fine silver color and the building sits under a pale gray-blue evening sky. I think that I am able to comply with this theme...
See the wonderful world of color at this fun meme!
