Park Plaza Diner Reopens Thursday After August Blaze

September 5, 2012

Following a fire August 4 that decimated the kitchen and HVAC system at Park Plaza Diner, the long-lived eatery at 220 Cadman Plaza West is scheduled to reopen for business Thursday, September 6. Dimitri Likourentzos, a member of the family-owned diner and its chef, tells BHB that the blaze caused extensive damage, requiring gutting of the kitchen, duct-work, AC units and a large portion of the roof.

“We had to practically rebuild the kitchen and fix a lot of the roof, which became a swimming pool after the Fire Department was here,” Likourentzos says. “It also destroyed a good bit of the renovation we had started a month before.” He muses: It’s been a lot of fun.”

Park Plaza will reopen Thursday, hopefully by midday. Likourentzos says, “We make so much of what we serve fresh, so there are a lot of day-to-day items we’re trying to get in stock before tomorrow. We’re hoping to be back in time for lunch.” Normal business hours at Park Plaza are Sunday-Thursday, 7 a.m. to 1:30 a.m., and 24 hours on weekends. (Photo: Park Plaza)

Theater 2020 Offers Another Chance to See a Work in Progress: Lady Susan

July 2, 2012

This past February, our friends at Theater 2020 presented a reading of playwright Lynn Marie Macy’s work in progress, Lady Susan or the Captive Heart, a Jane Austen Bodice Ripper at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Brooklyn Heights Branch, Cadman Plaza West and Tillary Street. Your correspondent attended, and filed this report. Since then, Ms. Macy has been refining her script, and now there’s a second opportunity to hear a reading of Lady Susan before it’s put into final shape and performed on stage sometime in 2013.

The reading will be at the same place on Saturday, July 14 (one week from this coming Saturday), from 1:20 to 3:30 p.m. Admission is free, as is the air conditioning.
