Celebrating the Diner — 09/29/22

The Red Arrow Diner is turning 100! Food writer Matt Ingersoll recently sat down with the Red Arrow’s three owners, who reflected on the diner’s rich history and lasting legacy as a staple of Manchester’s culinary scene. Learn about how the Red Arrow began as a tiny lunch cart on Lowell Street in October 1922 and its evolution into a hotspot today for political candidates and local celebrities alike. We’ve also got the details on a special free 100th anniversary celebration event at the diner on Saturday, Oct. 15. Want more diner eats? We take a look at other area diners serving up the classics.

Also on the cover The Deerfield Fair, a four-day event packed with midway amusement rides, food and animal demonstrations and competitions, is back for the 145th year (page 18). Hippo cocktail columnist John Fladd makes the case for why you should embrace pumpkin spice flavors this fall (page 29). Find live music for your weekend and beyond in our Music This Week section (starting on page 34).
