Village Diner in Red Hook, NY

The “Historic” Village Diner is significant as a distinctive example of early-twentieth century American roadside architecture surviving exceptionally intact from its date of manufacture in the 1920’s. It embodies distinguishing characteristics of the type and period in its streamlined metal railroad dining car inspired design, which was intended to evoke, at once, the ideas of travel, food cleanliness and modern efficiency.

The diner is additionally significant as a representative example of a Silk City Diner, a highly popular prefabricated dining car line manufactured by the Paterson Vehicle Company of Paterson, New Jersey from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. Moved several times to adapt to changing travel patterns, the history of the diner also recalls the growth and development of the regional transportation system during the early automobile age.

After years of catering to travelers on Dutchess County’s major highways, the “Historic” Village Diner now enjoys continued popularity as a community-oriented restaurant and the focal point of much local nostalgia.

TW: Fat shaming

Hey Bard I wanna ask you a favor. That favor is can we please stop so blatantly, shamelessly, repeatedly equating skininess with attractiveness to the point of exclusion of all others on both sexsomebardian AND likesomebardian? I ignored the rampant “skinny only” posts on…

YES THIS IS SO IMPORTANT

every time i see one of those posts i cringe. policing other people’s bodies for your own pleasure or otherwise is extraordinarily fucked up and just reinforces the normalizing of fat/body-shaming. C’MON SON.

Okay, so, I am debating with myself whether to say anything or not? But I feel like I really should, because I don’t know if anyone else will. Also, Bard has some serious problems with racism that tend to just get swept under the rug? Also, I am totally not a part of thisbardianlife, but I think it is a really great thing in general! 

BUT.

I listened to this person’s piece (it’s the first one), and, coupled with this photo, I am sensing a lot of Very Bad jokes being made at the expense of Native peoples, perhaps in the pursuit of irony (??). The white author plays a character called Alvin, who is 1/64th Iroquois and whose “Native American name” means “running water with rocks,” while dressed in a war bonnet and face paint. At the very best, it could read like he’s making fun of people who latch onto small parts of their heritage, but at its core, the joke is still awful/marginalizing, and appropriating Native garb as caricature is fucking offensive.

So am I missing something? Why was this an okay thing to do?
