Seymour Historical Society to shine spotlight on state's diners

SEYMOUR - More than 100 classic diners still dot Connecticut’s roadways and Main Streets, filling empty stomachs and serving as community gathering places. 
The inside story of these iconic eateries will be the focus of a Seymour Historical Society program at 2 p.m. Sept. 27.

Featured speaker Garrison Leykam, a public radio host and author, will focus on material drawn from his book, “Classic Diners of Connecticut.” 

He’ll talk about the companies that made the distinctive diner buildings, celebrate mouth-watering recipes, and reveal the colorful lingo used by waitresses and cooks to describe certain dishes. (Perhaps you’ll even learn what a “Noah’s boy” and “frog sticks” are.) 
Best of all, you’ll hear stories about what makes Tony’s Diner in Seymour and other diners featured in the book into important community landmarks. 

The Seymour Historical Society is located at 59 West St., near the Trinity Episcopal Church. 
The program is free to Seymour Historical Society members; $5 for non-members. Doors open at 1 p.m.
