On my run over the bridge this morning, I went past O’Rourke’s, and to my surprise and delight, what did I see, but no more plywood over the windows! I caught Brian O’Rourke outside in his trademark white apron and congratulated him on the rebuilding.
But the best part? Brian says O’Rourke’s Diner will be open in about two weeks! Prepare your stomachs, everyone! And check the O’Rourke’s Diner website for more information.
Freshmen and sophomores who may never have experienced the palate-pleasing joy that is O’Rourke’s: don’t pass up the opportunity to have a delicious breakfast when this gem reopens!
EDIT: Posted by drexmo on the O’Rourke’s Diner forums:
Brian tells us that the anticipated date to reopen is Monday, February 4th!! He also hopes to have extended hours into the evenings, ie dinner, on Thursdays thru Sundays! Spread the word!! Donations still very much welcome!!
