Column: Boomers hopes to go out with a bang

Boomers Coffeehouse in Upland is closing Saturday after 20 years of operation downtown, first in the Second Avenue Mall, and since 2006 in the Metrolink depot at 220 E. A St. Friday’s column — read it here — is about the coffeehouse’s demise. And feel free to leave a comment about the business too. A news story about the decision to evict Boomers can be read here.

Above and below are owners Lance and Gale Bennett, photographed by yours truly after our interview. I turned in the above photo to run with my column but I liked the one below too.

    I thunk it was named Bloomers.

    There are three “Boomers” in Upland. I was wondering if the couple here are involved in all three. If they are, I say good for them. If not, I question why respective City officials allow multiple, same-type establishments to have the same names. In Montclair, we have “Paradise Cafe”, and “Paradise Buffet”–no connection with each other–people sometimes walk into the former looking for the latter. I am sorry that the couple must close their business, though.

    [I’m not aware of other Boomers and doubt the couple has time for whatever the other ones are. I agree about Montclair’s two outposts of Paradise! — DA]
