Schuylkill County and Beyond are Celebrating Pierogy Day on Tuesday

Pierogy can be spelled many different ways, but one thing is for sure, Tuesday will be a big day for you if you love them Polish Pockets.

On Tuesday, October 8th, 2019, the 11th Annual Pierogy will be celebrated within Schuylkill County and many other places.

Mrs. T's Pierogies, will hold a special flag raising ceremony at Shenandoah Borough Hall on Tuesday.

According to Megan Heim, Assistant Public Relations Manager of Mrs. T's, the event will begin at 10:00am and is open to the public. The first 25 people to arrive will receive a special prize from Mrs. T's.

The Wheel, in Pottsville, will also be celebrating the day with a special menu which will include Buffalo Mac and Pierogies, Pierogie Pasta, and Bayside Crab Pierogie.  WBRE's PA Live will also be doing a live broadcast from the restaurant during their afternoon broadcast.

“Pierogies are something everyone in our area grew up on. Mrs. T's has been a staple and continues to be one of our county’s biggest assets. Not to mention, we tested them on grilled cheese early on in the life of the restaurant and it was a resounding hit!” said Savas Logothetides, owner of The Wheel.

According to Mrs. T's/Ateeco President Tom Twardzik, many universities participate in celebrating Pierogy Day as well.

"While some might not serve them on Tuesday, we kind of celebrate it as Pierogy Month.  We have been fortunate to have some of our colleges that are our customers invite us there for the day.  We will bring games, trivia, and t-shirts for the kids" said Twardzik.

Twardzik says Bloomsburg University, Kutztown University, and New York University are just some of the colleges they will be visiting throughout the month of October.

Twardzik also said that a special luncheon will be held at their plant in Shenandoah for the employees of Ateeco Inc.

Will you be having Pierogies on Tuesday?  What your favorite way to eat them? Butter and Onions? Fried?
