While awaiting some return calls I was browsing through Vimeo when I came across this freshly posted -- and quite lovely -- short about the late, great Metro Diner on Gaston. Owner Wayne Adams locked the door for the last (and damned near the first) timeat 2 p.m. April 10
to make way for more Baylor parking. I drove by the diner only a few days ago, and it was heartbreaking to see the place stripped of its neon, its windows replaced with wood. This was made well before its demise was imminent.

Update: In the comments, a Friend of Unfair Park says this looks like a YouPlusDallas video. Yes, yes it was -- from July 2010. But the score was different. I like the new one much, much better.
