John Bucci Jr. is back at John’s Roast Pork. Five years ago Bucci faced leukemia and required a bone marrow transfer. Once given a 50/50 chance at survival he’s back at the grill and looking to give back.
This Saturday, June 8th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. John’s Roast Pork will be holding bone-marrow registry drive and fund-raiser auction from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registrants get $5 off a sandwich, which is donated to the cause.
Read Craig LaBan’s story in today’s Inquirer on Bucci’s recovery and for details on the Bruschetta Steak as well as Saturday’s fundraiser.
John’s Roast Pork on Snyder Avenue can be a pain in the ass to get to since they are only open weekdays between 6:45 a.m. and 3 p.m. but now comes word that as of Saturday, April 7th, the roast pork sandwich stand that is known as much for their cheesesteak will be open on Saturdays. The hours will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We’ll glaze over the fans behaving badly and the cheesesteak references in this Chicago Tribune article and focus on the parts where food critic Phil Vettel finds us quite willing to talk about all the great food we have in this city.
Special nods of respect for finding Koo Zee Doo and skipping Pat’s/Geno’s for John’s Roast Pork.
