The unusually warm temperature today made for a slow shift at the Sunnyside Diner as most residents are outside trying to enjoy the warm up. The warm up will be brief as the temperature is projected to dip back down tomorrow. The Sunnyside Diner staff keeps themselves busy during the slow times by reading books and straightening up around the Diner.

Inside tip: Days like this are perfect to try someplace new because there is usually no wait to be served.

Most of the residents live by the golden rule.

Inside tip: If you happen to lose anything at the Sunnyside Diner, Christy will be glad to take your number and call you if it turns up in the lost and found.
