Washington County ‘Ghostbusters’ restaurant nationally recognized
This is one haunt the Ghostbusters should definitely respond to.
Angelo’s II, a restaurant in Monongahela, Washington County, has received recognition from Today Food for its festive Halloween decorations — an inflatable Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and inflatable green tentacles.
“They love it,” owner Ryan Dzimiera told Today Food, part of the NBC-TV morning show, on Monday. “I’m looking out the window right now and there’s a class of kids taking pictures and standing in front of it, which is just really cool to see.”
The restaurant posted a picture of the decorations on its Facebook page Sunday, and people were quick to share their thoughts on the haunted building.
The picture had more than 70 comments, 130 shares and about 500 likes as of Tuesday morning.
“This is so awesome! Think I just found a new restaurant to eat at … the pictures of the food and pastries look amazing! I can’t believe I never knew about this place,” one comment said.
“So awesome!! This made the news all the way up here to Niagara Falls, New York and Buffalo, New York!!” another said.
According to Today, the restaurant started putting up elaborate holiday decorations last year. The first display featured a giant Santa Claus for Christmas. It also was decorated for Easter.
Stay Puft was purchased online, but the tentacles are a homemade custom creation that are kept inflated using fans, Today reported.
