Here’s a Guy Wearing a Trash Bag at the Llanerch Diner Last Night in Honor of Silver Linings Playbook

Some people treat the Oscar’s like the Super Bowl by hosting big parties with an extensive array of food with gambling pools to see who can pick the most winners. And other people wear trash bags to the Llanerch Diner.

“And who are you wearing this evening?”

“I went with a classic Hefty look.”

If you’re not familiar with Silver Linings Playbook — at this point you probably live under a rock — Bradley Cooper’s oddball character in the film, Pat Solitano, frequently rocks the trashbag-over-sweatshirt look when he goes out jogging in Delco.

As you can see in the below video, patrons at the Llanerch Diner are really savoring the spotlight David O. Russell’s movie is shining on it. And for those of you, like me, who’ve eaten some 3:00 am cheese fries at the joint, the thought of waiting 45 minutes to eat there seems unimaginable.


Silver Linings was sadly shutout from most of the awards it was up for, although Jennifer Lawrence did steal the show by bringing home the award for best actress.
