Boomer’s will be temporarily closed for a little remodeling

100_2330UPDATE March 7th – We will be re-opening tomorrow! We are looking forward to seeing everyone and showing off our shiny newly remodeled kitchen.

We survived Boomuary (aka The Anniversary Sale) so while we give the carhops and cooks a few well-deserved days to recover, we will be giving the kitchen a bit of a makeover. Since we will be putting up fresh paint, installing new counters and doing other neat stuff, we won’t be cooking for a few days.

We hope to be open again in a week but these projects can come with surprises so we don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up until we are sure. So watch here and on our Facebook page and Twitter account for updates so you don’t miss out when our doors open again.

The Tale of the Boomer’s Tip Jar

Original Boomers Drive-In tip jar from Glass Mountain Studios

Original Boomers Drive-In tip jar from Glass Mountain Studios

Many years ago Ed Schmid and other Boomer’s Drive-In fans at Glass Mountain Studios crafted a custom tip jar and gave it to Boomer’s. It was displayed proudly on the front counter.

Sadly, it was stolen during the craziness of an anniversary sale only a few years later.

Replacement Boomers Drive-In tip jar

Upon hearing the news, the gang at Glass Mountain Studios showed up with a replacement custom-made tip jar. How cool is that?

But surprise upon surprises, a gentleman recently returned the original custom tip jar to us the other day. His son had found it in a lot down the street from Boomer’s about the time they were moving. The tip jar ended up in storage until it was discovered a few days ago.

It’s very cool to have it back. Loving our fans and neighbors.

Pardon Our Mess

Our drive-in canopy is getting a makeover for the next couple weeks. Be aware not to park in spots blocked with cones or tape.

Construction begins!

It’s been a long time since the canopy was built so it’s due for replacing. Fortunately, it will essentially look the same when done save for the peeling paint and other signs of age.
