Two days before Thanksgiving 2021, a chemical fire broke out. No injuries were reported. A GoFundMe campaign has raised over $73,000 since then.

The 29 Diner closed back in 2014 before John Wood bought it and reopened it. In the fall of 2021 I visited for the first time in decades and noted the changes to the menu and vibe. Inside, it didn’t change much.
