Please join us; on the patio….

Upon the Diner’s quiet Wyoming reception….. we planned what elements to include in addition to the Moondance Diner itself in order to facilitate quality food and service. One of course was a commercial kitchen addition and the other was outdoor seating…. keeping in mind the warm Wyoming summers and beatiful autumn evenings.  After sketching and re-sketching some ideas I came up with a concrete patio. “I think it should be a half circle; moon-shaped?; enough room for some small tables, benches, possibly a band, grill…..” my mind stretched with the possiblities. This patio would mean extra seating and a place for fun events the Moondance will have the opportunity to host.

A few weeks before scheduling the concrete pour we tossed some ideas around as to how to make it a unique feature; possibly incorporating stamping or colors? Our G.C. Don Hacklin thought of a friend whom he’d worked with in California whom may want to come to Wyoming to help form a few design elements that could be poured with concrete dyed with colors of our choosing. Vince spent a morning over at the Moondance to help lay-out a moons and stars pattern to be formed then poured. Don’s friend Jake made the journey to La Barge for a week and formed and assisted with the pour. It was interesting to see the design take shape. This will be a much enjoyed aspect of Dining at the Moondance! Vince asked that plans for a natural gas heating element be included so that one can enjoy the patio while sipping cider ;a truly divine scenario for a crisp October evening.
