Win or go Home!

Design Playoffs

It’s playoff time and most of the town has basketball fever. In order to capitalize on the craze, the Sunnyside Diner has temporarily added several tv screens to attract customers who would otherwise be watching the games somewhere else. Whether you are a casual viewer or a hardcore fan, you will have no trouble finding a spot to experience the games. Good luck to all the teams playing.

Inside tip: It quickly becomes very clear who is a basketball fan and who isn’t.

Animal Crackers!

There is never a dull moment at the Sunnyside Diner. The staff go back and forth with each other all day long like a pair of siblings. It is never personal, it just helps them to pass the time. You have to be able to take it as good as you give it to work here.

Inside tip: Contrary to how it may seem to visitors, Sonny and Christy are extremely close.

Picky Eaters!

Design PBJ

Have you ever vacationed with your children and dreaded paying for meals at restaurants that you know they will probably half eat? At the Sunnyside Diner, all kids 12 and under eat for free on Tuesdays. The kids menu is packed with items that will please even the pickiest of eaters.

Inside tip: Be sure to choose the right menu. The kids menu is so full that adults often pick it up and mistake it for the regular menu.

Out of Luck!

Design St Patrick

Griddle Creek has one of the lowest crime rates of any vacation destination, however, travelers still need to make an effort to keep track of their belongings. In most missing items cases, it turns out the tourist simply left the item behind somewhere. Griddle Creek is very proud and protective of their good reputation. 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.

Lost Time!

Design Spring foward

One of the first signs of spring is the clock moving an hour ahead for daylight saving time. This has been a harsh winter so any sign of spring coming is welcomed by most residents. For travelers new to Griddle Creek, the town does observe daylight saving time, please adjust your watches so you are on time for all of your scheduled activities. Do not rely on the clocks around town as some establishments, like the Sunnyside Diner, may be slow to adjust their clocks.

Inside tip: Make sure to adjust the time on all of your clocks and watches in the right direction.

Ice Box!

Design Ice Cold

The temperatures in Griddle Creek this week have resembled an ice box. It has been unreasonably cold this last week. The temperatures have been too low to safely enjoy any outdoor activities. The local weather service suggests you only go outside if you have to. Next week’s temperatures look more promising.

Inside tip: If you happen to be in Griddle Creek this week we suggest you stay inside and order room service.

Snow Day!

The winters in Griddle Creek are mild but the town does get the occasional snow storm. The extra snow is great for sledding but terrible for commuting. Some businesses do close or have reduced hours during the snow days. Not everybody in town is a fan of the snow.

Inside tip: Some of the town residents avoid coming out in the snow altogether, so our advice is to call ahead and confirm your planned destination is still open.

The Sunnyside Diner welcomes all customers. They don’t have a lot of rules but the rules they do have are important. The diner does not allow customers to bring in outside food.

Inside tip: Believe it or not the Sunnyside Diner does have a dress code, no shirt, no pants, no shoes, no service.

Design Banana Split

The Sunnyside Diner is serving classic Banana Splits this weekend. When the weather gets too hot outside, come inside for a cool refreshment. They are good any time of the day.

Where to do it: Why the Sunnyside Diner, of course! Make your way there before the special is over.

Inside tip: Wear your comfortable eating pants, it’s a large sundae.

National Comic Book Day!

Design Comic Book Day

The town of Griddle Creek is celebrating Comic Book Day.

Where to do it: Any and everywhere. On the bus or train on the way to work. On your lunch break. In the breakroom. Take time today to enjoy a comic book.

Inside tip: For comic book recommendations don’t be afraid to ask DeCaffe, she has been collecting them for years. Just don’t ask her while she is in the middle of reading one.
