We packed up the van and headed up north 61 to Shendo, and paid a visit to Lucky’s Deli. It was my first time, and I ate like a true king.
Haven and I have a lot of history. I don’t think they’ve ever forgiven me for being an integral part of beating them in football 1989 when I was an assistant water boy for Nativity.
But, despite all of that, I’m still a stand up guy and thought it was necessary to review their lunch. I wasn’t disappointed. Patty and the entire crew did an amazing job.
Doing this tour really makes me realize just how great it was to have school lunch every day.
Jim Gurcsik does an amazing job with the students at Schuylkill Technology South. The restaurant is open to the public and 100% run by the students. And they’re not just making your rinky dink menu. They have everything from Curry Alfredo Pasta to Oysters Rockefeller.
Add this to your list of lunch stops.
Even though I’m Italian I can appreciate some good pork & sauerkraut. I picked up three. One from Yorkville Hose in Pottsville, another from Schuylkill Hose #2 in Haven, and the last one from Good Will in Minersville.
All three were excellent, but I could only choose one winner. No bias at all as it was done as a blind taste test (as the title of the post tells you)
Kenneth Kline is my neighbor. I had zero idea of the coaching legend that he was in the Coal Region. He led Jim Thorpe to a state championship in the 60s, and lost a second one on a half court buzzer beater.
He then came to Pottsville where he accumulated over 200 wins, and was a shop teacher.
A great neighbor, and it seems like an even better coach.
Pan Rolls. Mac & Cheese. Eagle week. Do you need anything else?
Took the show on the road this week and visited Millie from Mamma Millies bakery in Pottsville.
Key advice … when in doubt, bring an apple Jewish cake!

I’ve read a total of zero John O’Hara books, but I still had fun doing this interview with Jim Haluska from the Schuylkill County Historical Society. You will too.
Today we visit with President Judge (a big deal) Judge William Baldwin and discuss growing up in Pottsville, challenges of being a judge, and I compliment his weekly fruit selection at Giant.
October is pretty much the best month of the year.
Today we can easily take care of the last one for you with an interview with Diana from the Schuylkill County Historical Society giving us all the details on the Haunted Walking tours starting this Friday.
