I have always loved the atmosphere of a diner, especially one with an open kitchen. There's something about seeing the cooks create your food, the hustle and bustle of the staff, and the noises. I love the noises. It feels alive, and even if you eat alone, you feel welcomed and accompanied. @metrodiner is all that and then some, and you always feel welcomed. Today is my birthday and my parents ask where I wanted to go, and of course, here we were earlier today. I had their signature Chicken and Waffles. They serve up one of the best fried chickens and when you accompany that with their waffles. Well then, it's just magic on a plate 😋 It's so good! It must have looked damn good as well, because I had an sweet older lady asked if she can take a picture of my meal 😄 I happily obliged and even arranged the food for her to take a better photo. Haha! ~Aristotle

“We wanted to be America’s Rolling Stones”
41 years ago today, a chartered plane carrying Lynyrd Skynyrd, in the midst of a headlining tour, crashed in a Gillsburg, Mississippi Swamp. “Lord knows, Lynyrd Skynyrd had seen it coming. On the flight from Florida to South Carolina, the band’s Convair CV-240 tour plane had begun spewing orange flames from its starboard engine. The two pilots seemed unfazed, insisting there wasn’t a problem. But by the time they landed in Greenville, some were spooked enough to book commercial flights to their next destination.
The following day, leader Ronnie Van Zant decided to board again for that night’s gig in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In lieu of Skynyrd’s all-for-one credo, the rest of the 26 people – bandmembers and road crew – followed suit. Stepping aboard in the late afternoon of October 20, 1977, Van Zant turned to security guard Gene Odom— “C’mon, let’s go,” he said. “If it’s your time to go, it’s your time to go.” ~Rob Hughes for @uncutmagazine
