Local Man Giving Up Meatball Omelets for Lent


Newly converted Catholic Turner B. Donaldson will be forgoing Dominick’s famous meatball omelets for Lent. “Since this is my first Lent as a Catholic, I wanted to give up something that I’ll really miss – delicious meatball omelets,” said Donaldson. Normally Donaldson can be found at the table by the window in the longtime Erie eatery at 7:00am, enjoying the well-known breakfast treat. “I try to sit near the door for fresh air, since the smell of alcohol is still lingering from the overnight patrons.”

But will he be able to make it? “Just the thought of those giant meatballs, gooey cheese, and tomato sauce…Wow, this might be harder than I thought.”

When asked if there’s any other food that might help him get through the 40 days of Lent, Donaldson replied, “40 days? I thought it was 14! Oh, Christ.”
