August 1st is fast approaching!! We are very excited for these events to happen (Aug 1, 15, 29 and Sept 12). I thought I would take a couple minutes and explain exactly how it is going to work.
Where: If you have been to the Diner lately, you’ve no doubt noticed our new canopy (thanks Lake Owen Camp) over the porch adjoining the Diner. We also have covered areas between the Diner and Diner Store with picnic tables. We will be serving at the Window on the Porch, there are standing rails on the porch for eats and drinks, seating is available at the picnic tables and the live music will be played under the canopy. The Diner itself will not be open during the Thursday BBQ Porch Events.
When: The porch will open at 5:30pm for food and beverage. Music starts at 6pm and ends at 8pm. The evening ends at 8:30pm.
Menu: This event is all about Diner BBQ. August 1st we will be serving 1/3 racks of Diner slow cooked Memphis Style Baby Backs with our in house bourbon baked beans, slaw, cornbake, and bread. We will offer one of Bo’s great beers from South Shore Brewery, our house wines, and soft drinks. That’s it!! Your choice is Ribs or Ribs.
Music: We are very fortunate to have Andy Noyes as our “music man” for these events. Andy will be performing a solo act for the August 1st event and bringing friends for the other three events. All music performed on the porch will be original composition music performed by the artist(s) that created the work. We want to provide a place where local original work can be performed and featured, rather than mixed in with covers. So, no covers, don’t even ask (please)!! :) The only change to this is the possibility of adding some “traditional” cultural music down the road. Stay tuned.
Cost: Beer $5, Wine $7, Rib Basket $15, Double the Ribs $20, Music is Free (please tip the music talent liberally)
So come help us celebrate BBQ, Beer, Wine and MUSIC, on the Porch … at the Delta Diner! Should be great fun!! I will post another update before the first event.
