Sara’s Restaurant Prepares for Media Onslaught


An annual spring swarm is about to descend on Erie, although this one is mostly harmless. It’s the swarm of media that has gathered at Sara’s restaurant near Presque Isle to cover their opening day, which is seen as a rite of passage in the Erie area.

“My news director sends me here twice a year” said one unnamed local reporter. “Opening day; and in the fall when they close. I think he knows the guy who owns it. I have to remember to bring back a hot dog for our anchor or else he’ll ask me a question I’m not prepared for during the live shot.”

Eve Hartling, a visitor to Presque Isle from Pittsburgh, noticed all the media vehicles and stopped to see what the big story was. “Is the president here? Did a UFO land? I can’t seem to figure out what’s happening, but it must be pretty big to have all these media people around.”

Down the road, the owners of Steve-o’s Pizza stared at the media assemblage and shook their heads, thinking about all the money they spend on advertising.
