Jarvis Jacket to be Retired at July 4 Event

The historic trenchcoat of Cookie Jarvis, that long, flowing icon of eating, will be retired on July 4 in Coney Island upon the formal retirement of this eating great.

The last time a "number" was retired was in 1999, when Mike Devito's shirt was hoisted to the rafters in an emotional ceremony. many fans teared up as Devito's jersey swayed in the wind on its way up toward history.

Cookie's custom-embroidered jacket will be a little heavier than Devito's jersey, however, and may take several individuals to hoist. Cookie is expected to say a few words of thank to his fans as the jacket is retired.
