Help Wanted

Greetings everyone! Just checking in to let you know that, despite a hectic vacation and work schedule, I am still working on the upcoming Coney Island Restaurant Tour, which will kick off in mid August. I have spent the last two months researching the history of the Coney Island in Flint, interviewing those who have written on the subject over the last generation, and making a comprehensive list of all of the Coney Island Restaurants in the county.

Here’s where I need your help. I know there are many more Coney Island restaurants than I have on my list, and I want to make sure I have every place on my list that’s in business before the start of the tour. All of the joints on my list are currently open, to the best of my knowledge, but if you know otherwise, please let me know. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

Stephanie will again accompany me on our 8 month adventure, which will get under way in just a couple of weeks, so keep watching and make sure to tell all your friends!
