The Uptown Cafe confirmed on Monday that singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen dined in the restaurant on Saturday.
“There isn't much else to say other than he was very nice to our staff,” a representative for the Uptown Cafe said over email.
People began wondering why Springsteen was in town when a woman tweeted that her friend’s son works in the restaurant and told her that Springsteen and fellow singer-songwriter and Bloomington resident John Mellencamp entered the establishment. Bates said, according to her friend’s son, that Springsteen “is a generous tipper.”
Outside of the information given, though, no one at the Uptown Cafe has any other comment, such as why Springsteen might have been in town.
