This morning on Fox & Friends, the owners of the Round the Clock Diner on Route 30 in York, PA were featured. They are familiar to most of us who regularly attend the York Meet as they draw a large TCA breakfast crowd.
They opened for inside business on Morher's Day despite the Governor's order preventing this action. They are practicing all of the safe practices recommended and followed by the so-called "essential businesses" (like marijuana stores-can you believe this) and their business is vigorous. They said the the local City and County officials have been very helpful to them, many who are their customers.
Thought it was interesting that an establishment that many of us who know this establishment very well made the national news this morning.
In terms of train forums, you will probably only see this here. Heck, news about a famous model train enthusiasts hang-out, way to controversial in these times.
Thanks Adam for the clip, Most York Meet attendees are very familiar with the Round the Clock Diner, so it will be of interest to them.
In the bigger picture, thank goodness we have courageous business people who are willing to stand up to ridiculous government overreach at this time. And we at the OGF can address this subject without a BIG DELETE BUTTON.

Thanks for sharing this information, Brian. The write-up I saw mentioned two locations: Round the Clock Diner on Rt30, the one we're most familiar with, and Round the Clock Diner EAST (which as the name implies is on the eastern side of York off Rt 462 east of I83). Glad to see these establishments telling Comrade Wolf where he can stick his policies.
I read a few minutes ago that Dr. Fauci says 'now is the time' to reopen the economy”. I like him, IMHO Dr. Fauci seems to know what he is taking about regarding the COVID19, and has given us good advice so far.
I cannot believe how staying home and being safe has become a partisan biased issue. It seems some in our government are saying its important to stay home, don't work, and smoke pot, and we will tell you when its ok to go to work because you are too dumb to figure it out. REALLY? When Trump visited a Ford facility yesterday, all the press focused on was if He wore a mask? Are you kidding me? What about all the heroes that went to work everyday risking their lives to make ventilators and shields for the public. Not one word was said about that. I understand its important to self distance and public crowds should be avoided, if you are sick stay at home. … I understand there are health risk in dining out. Risk were there before Covid-19. but now we become so paranoid that nothing will be the same until a vaccine is available. I don't see any type of normal living until then.
Living in Harrisburg, I can tell you that UNFORTUNATELY state stores (liquor) were NOT initially considered essential during the shutdown. So we Pennsylvanians bore the brunt of Covid AND had to be sober about it... I watched my booze supply dwindle and was starting to get pretty desperate. FINALLY (today) state stores were allowed to open in Yellow phase counties (York and Cumberland), and I was able to restock. The store I visited was doing a brisk business at noon, so you know there was some pent up demand being released there. MAYBE, now with a little EtOH on board, we can all take a deep breath and relax...
