The Phillie Phanatic Is Coming To Manco's
The Phillie Phanatic - whose good friend is an OC homeowner and a Walking The Boards subscriber (are you?) - will be at Manco’s this Wednesday as part of a larger Phillies-themed event.
Here’s the press release:
While the team’s away, the Phillie Phanatic and friends will be making a special visit to Ocean City, NJ in honor of “Phillies Day at Manco & Manco” on Wednesday, June 14, from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. at 9th Street and the Boardwalk.
The fun kicks off with the Phillies Ballgirls, who will be hosting ‘Planco & Planco at Manco’ with fun Phillies prizes to win throughout the event (while supplies last).
Fans are also invited to receive autographs and take photos with 1993 National League champions Milt Thompson (also a 2008 world champion hitting coach) and John Kruk (also a Phillies broadcaster), who will be at Manco & Manco from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
The Phillie Phanatic will then make his big entrance at 6:30 p.m., where he will attempt to take part in one of Manco & Manco’s traditions, which is making the pizza fresh in front of the customers.
Part of the proceeds from this special event will benefit Phillies Charities, Inc.
The popular Manco & Manco is also one of the concessions in Ashburn Alley and throughout the ballpark at Citizens Bank Park.
The Phillies, of course, have a partnership with Manco’s through their location at the ballpark. This will be the second year in a row that the green guy has showed up.
See you there.
