Today, as I said, we went out to Oakley. It was a really cute, really small, rather out of the way town. And it was cold as heck (49 degrees and raining!!) so I can't say I spent a lot of time absorbing the atmosphere. The best part of the afternoon was stopping at the local diner for lunch after the game. It was so very atmospheric... It's the Road Island Diner and was moved to Oakley (of all places) from New Jersey in 2007. If you want to read the whole history (which is kind of interesting) follow the link.
I love that they kept the whole thing authentically 1939 retro style. All except the fancy schmancy tv's on either end and the quarter juke boxes on each table.
I should say that they have some very yummy fry sauce and an outstanding grilled Reuben. YUM-O!!!
