Pro football great and former Baltimore Colts player Gino Marchetti will be signing autographs and memorabilia at Gino's Burgers and Chicken in Towson from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9.
When the franchise opened in August, Gino was unable to attend the ribbon-cutting since he had been hospitalized earlier for pneumonia. I'm glad he's better and is able to be part of the restaurant's "Fan Appreciation Day."
After all, Gino's is named after him. He was one of the founders of the popular Baltimore eatery that closed in the early '90s. This first franchise in the Baltimore area features burgers, chicken sandwiches, fries, onion rings, real ice-cream shakes, and salads. And, yes, the Gino Giant!
More Gino's locations are planned in Maryland and other states.
