The Big Idaho Potato Truck is coming to town

A truckload of Idaho potatoes is on its way to Richfield and the community is invited to come to Whitey’s Booze N’ Burgers on Brecksville Road on Sunday, Aug. 7, from 3-7 p.m. to be part of the fun.

Whitey’s owner, John Bigadza, and his son Matt, have become vodka distillers and their main ingredient is potatoes. While they have gotten potatoes from several sources, this load comes from the state known as the potato capital and the truck delivering the spuds announces that fact.

The Bigadza family is producing, selling and distributing the vodka, with all of the sales receipts going to St. Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral in Parma, where the donations will be distributed to an orphanage in Ukraine.

The vodka can be purchased by the glass at Whitey’s and by the bottle at Corkscrew Johnny’s in Richfield. ∞
