DINERS, HOT TEXAS WEINERS AND SILK CITY HISTORY
The Paterson Museum will open its newest exhibit, “Order’s Up! Paterson and the Rise of the New Jersey Diner,” on Saturday, July 8, from 1 to 3 p.m. The event is free and the public is invited to attend.
This exhibition will highlight Paterson’s contributions to the diner industry, from Silk City Diners to Libby’s Lunch and the Hot Texas Weiner. Many of the photos in the exhibit come from New Jersey author Michael Gabriele, who serves as the co-curator. Among his many publications, Gabriele has written two books about diners, The History of Diners in New Jersey, and Stories from New Jersey Diners.
A short program will be followed by an informal meet and greet with the co-curators and a chance to explore the exhibition.
The Paterson Museum, located at 2 Market Street (on the corner of Market and Spruce Streets) is in the heart of the Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park. For more information about this event, or to learn more about the Paterson Museum, visit our website: https://patersonmuseum.com/.
