What's more American than a Midwestern diner on a the 4th of July? We imagine that was Adele's thinking when she popped into the Longfellow neighborhood's Hi-Lo Diner yesterday. That and maybe a hankering for pancakes and donuts.
The British megastar swung into town a day ahead of her concert at Xcel Energy Center and tweeted:
Happy 4th July America! Really happy to be here ???????? pic.twitter.com/rk8oEZzb77— Adele (@Adele) July 4, 2016
She'll kick off her U.S. tour here tonight, and presumably sought after some homey diner eats to fortify her. While she didn't explicitly mention Hi-Lo in her tweet, the Current reports that after some internet detective work, her fans recognized the shiny chrome dining car.
So did she tackle a stack of pancakes with rivers of maple syrup? Did she sample some Hi-tops, the diner's signature fried dough with sweet and savory toppings? Did she have breakfast or skip straight to dessert and booze? Is she human just like us?
Hi-Lo isn't saying and no one from the public was there to bear witness — the diner was closed for the 4th of July.
Update: At her show at the Xcel Energy Center last night, Adele mentioned she had "chicken on a donut" at a "real American diner." She likely had the Gary Coop'er, a Hi-top loaded with buttermilk fried chicken, maple bourbon syrup, country gravy, and micro arugula. She also mentioned a dinner at 112 Eatery, where we pray someone served her the tres leches cake or butterscotch budino or both.
