Worcester’s Coney Island Selling Buckets of Hot Dogs to Support Friendly House

by | Jun 8, 2019 | Headlines, Dining, Entertainment, News

WORCESTER – Inspired by a battle for Worcester’s best restaurant, George’s Coney Island has an incredible limited time offer to help out a local nonprofit.

For a limited time only, Coney Island will be selling “Boynton Buckets” filled with a dozen hot dogs — served any way you like — for $50 to help raise money for The Friendly House — a multiservice organization in Worcester that services local families in need.

In the third round of NBC 10 Boston’s “Best Restaurant in Greater Worcester” tournament [voting ended Friday, June 7 at 12 PM], Coney Island took on The Boynton, who sells the popular “Boynton Buckets” — a beach pail filled with coconut rum, blackberry brandy, raspberry vodka, triple sec, blue curacao and fresh juices served to two or more persons with long straws. 

Coney Island is taking empty Boynton buckets, putting a Coney Island bumper sticker over the Boynton logo and filling them with hot dogs.
