The scene looked like news coverage of a Black Friday doorbuster deal. Dozens stormed Fuhrman’s Cider Mill Friday to get the first taste of the famous Apple Cider, leaving one man with sour grapes. “I’ve been camped out since 3am,” he told us, as paramedics checked his vitals. “We wanted to make sure we got some of the first batch, but when the doors opened, it was just mayhem. I’m not sure exactly what happened, but my son and I will be thirsty tonight.” Eyewitnesses from the scene reported customers swinging jugs of cider at each other and standing on coolers trying to fend off the crazed apple fiends. The coolers were empty as the store closed Friday, but owners and staff are preparing for more of the same on Saturday. “Maybe I’ll try again tomorrow,” he said. “I’ll have to bring my ‘A’ game. After I get checked for a concussion, I’ll be right back in line. Have you tried the stuff? It’s totally worth it.” This is the second possible concussion this month for the man, after being knocked out by a frozen ham during Erie County Farms’ reopening just last week.
