Take Mom to The Rosebud One Last Time

The Rosebud Diner in Davis Square, better known as The Rosebud, tells Eater that it plans to close on May 12, better known as Mother's Day. The historic/iconic/picturesque/nostalgic/old restaurant is reportedly being sold to Vinny Testa's - now Vinny T's - founder Marty Bloom, who told the Somerville Patch that "a big upgrade" was in store, though the National Register of Historic Places-worthy exterior of the diner car front will remain intact. Local band the_Stampede claims to be playing the last show ever in the restaurant's bar/music venue section, on May 11, and notes that they are "setting our guns to DESTROY." Hopefully their destruction won't affect that exterior.

Update: The Rosebud appears to be hanging on until at least mid-June.
