Philly Diner at auction: Everything's to go

The University City diner, which went out last weekend, is selling its equipment.

Philly Diner at auction: Everything's to go

After 10 years, the Penn campus mainstay Philly Diner at 39th and Walnut Streets closed Sunday at the end of its lease, as the Daily Pennsylvanian reports.

If the diner holds memories, or if you're thinking of furnishing a restaurant of your own, note that the diner's innards are being offered for sale on Comly Auctioneers' website.

Two days of bidding will begin Thursday, Oct. 20 on tables and chairs, a counter, refrigeration equipment, an espresso machine, bain maries, griddles, an ice maker, deep-fryers, and even a nifty framed print of an American flag.

I'm waiting to hear from Penn -- the landlord -- about what will become of the location.
