Goodbye Juniper Cafe
First off, sorry about the lack of posting yesterday. I was in bed with a stomach virus all day. After sleeping all day, I feel much better.
As I mentioned earlier, the Juniper Cafe was to close at the end of this month. In fact, today was its last day (it'll be official at 2:00PM today). So after 47 years, the Juniper Cafe is no more.
As is our usual Friday tradition, my father and brother-in-law went there this morning at 6:00am, and my family went there for lunch today. The waitress that is always there bought our lunch (we left her a healthy tip). A Bulletin reporter was there as we were leaving, interviewing the manager and such.
Apparently on May 10, the owners of the building are going to be coming back into town and basically giving away everything in there to the highest bidder. I'm going to see if I can get some of the wall hangings off the wall in there (I did get a postcard or two while I was in there).
The waitress that's been there as long as I can remember is moving to Billings, Montana, with her husband. Apparently he works at the local Outback Steakhouse, and they're opening one in Billings that he's going to transfer to.
Good luck to them, they will be missed, as will everbody at the cafe.
