Join us at the bookstore for the release of Two Up & A Bag of Chips, the history of one of Worcester's most beloved institutions: George's Coney Island.
From the introduction:
"When my grandfather, a young Greek immigrant, first purchased George’s Coney Island, I’m sure he never dreamed of the many changes the city of Worcester would undergo, or imagined that our small family business would outlast them all and grow into an iconic city landmark...
In these pages, you’ll read about everything from my grandfather’s difficult ship passage from Greece to how we got our iconic sign, from the origin of our special sauce to the carvings on our wooden booths, from Worcester’s manufacturing history to the current revitalization of downtown.
Woven throughout the book are your personal stories too, because you are the reason Coney Island has celebrated 100 years in business and is still going strong. I am overwhelmed with gratitude each time you share a Coney Island experience. We value them all. We are blessed to have had the opportunity to feed, listen to, care for, cry, and laugh with you.
Whether you’ve just discovered Coney Island or you’re one of our regulars, this book is for you. If you have never been to Coney Island, we hope you will enjoy this story and come experience a taste of Worcester, Massachusetts, for yourself. May we have a hundred more years of memories to come. For as long as you let us, we will be here for you."
Filled with full color photos, the book celebrates Coney Island, with testimonials from over 400 fans, and is a valuable addition to the entrepreneurial history of Worcester.
