Site administrators don't like links to news stories. But this is from Helen Schwab's Observer column in May:
Look for the Midnight Diner to open in about a month at South Tryon Street and Carson Boulevard, just down from the Uptown Cabaret. Brian Dominick, part of the Cabaret ownership, says he bought the classic diner in Kings Mountain "seven or eight months ago," then shipped it here. He'll turn it over in three weeks to an out-of-state operator who, he believes, plans a classic diner menu - breakfast 24 hours a day, salads, chicken, sandwiches, oversized portions - and will need a bit of time to tweak it.
