In my voyages abroad, I have often frequented late night food establishments, be it
Yet, if we had some kind of hybrid column, I would peg this as half unreasonable. It is unfortunate that this is the only 24 hour diner around (IHOP does not count), and one is just not enough. I have a feeling the city licensing boards may feel quite differently, otherwise we would indeed have more. Allowing starving, stressed out students or (semi-) cracked out party kids to go hungry in the middle of the night is just not right. Further, always-open convenience stores (read: 7 eleven) don’t even begin to offer a viable alternative. The 24 hour diner is not merely an eating establishment, it is also a social institution—what more could you ask for than late night breakfast or dinner at sunrise?
