2011.03.23 Tom Spiess: Full of Baloney

Written by David Green. Posted in Letters

Those who attended the “You’re Full of Boloney Night” at the Bean Creek Coffee House saw that the event was a huge success.

Last Tuesday’s standing-room-only crowd enjoyed music ranging from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Irish folk and also the results of the baloney-making contest.

Brookview Meats, Pettisville Meats and Jacoby’s Meats, as well as Kent and Becky Thatcher, provided baloney and made “You’re Full of Baloney Night” a culinary treat.

Their efforts yielded 15 excellent samples of locally made baloneys that represented a worthy facsimile of Fayette’s famed baloney of the past. It was an honor to have many members of the Fidler family on hand to participate in the event.

Nancy Lavinder and members of the Fayette Arts Council also helped the success of program by setting up for the evening.

On behalf of the Fayette Arts Council and the Fayette Opera House, I want to express my appreciation to the many fine performers who made the third season of the Bean Creek Coffee House memorable.
