Mike Prushinski, owner of the Anthracite Café in Wilkes-Barre, will take on the job of providing food in the food booth at the Back Mountain Memorial Library Auction this year. He’s planning to bring his best and most popular-selling items to the auction grounds.
How about boardwalk beef sandwich with sautéed onions and horseradish sauce on a Kaiser roll for starters? And he says he’ll have all the regular foods auction lovers crave like hot dogs, pulled pork chicken tenders, soft pretzels and nachos.
Prushinski is confident everybody will be pleased. He’ll have a staff of six to eight people who will man the booth all four days of the auction - Thursday through Sunday. “This work is not new to me; it may be a new location but we do this kind of work all the time,” he said confidently.
The job was recommended to Prushinski by his friend Dan Volpetti and Prushinski is “pretty excited about it.” He can’t wait to meet all the new and very cordial people in the Back Mountain, he says.
Prushinski will donate half of the profit from food sales back to the library.
