It's as all-American as baseball and apple pie - the summer Block Party! Friends gather. Great food is served. There are plenty of drinks to go around and in the best of times, there is even live entertainment. Summer is a time to relax and enjoy traditions like Block Parties, especially those hosted by the ultimate neighbor, Dick Moranto of Backstreet Bar & Grill.
This Saturday, Aug. 10, Backstreet Bar & Grill is home to a BLOCK PARTY to beat all block parties. Beginning at noon, you will find classic summer fare - burgers, grilled chicken sandwiches and hot dogs (with macaroni or potato salad on the side) and your favorite drink specials all day, and all night. With unbeatable prices of $5.00 for the burgers and chicken, and only $2.00 for the hot dogs, you will NOT leave here hungry. As if it could get any better, there is also LIVE entertainment with the sounds of Tom Revane from 12 noon until 4:00pm, followed by Black Jade from 4pm to 8pm, and then to finish up the night, there will be a DJ and Karaoke until 12:30 am. The perfect summer Block Party here at Moranto's Backstreet Bar & Grill.
Backstreet Bar & Grill has been a familiar site on West Shore Road for over two decades. Owners Dick and Colleen Moranto have made this popular "watering hole" a place where newcomers and old-timers alike feel at home. Their friendly staff knows you by name, and treats you like family. The Moranto's care about their Warwick neighbors, always supporting local musicians and hosting frequent fund raisers for community causes.
It takes a lot to stay busy after 20-plus years in the business, and to thank their many loyal customers, the Moranto's are hosting another great event on September 21st - a Customer Appreciation Fun Run - for bikers and non-bikers alike. The first kickstand goes up at 11:00, and all are invited back to the grill for a free cookout at 2:30. Stay tuned for more details.
Backstreet is known for its great pub-style food, including a long list of savory appetizers and main dishes, and its full-service bar. Come check out their Friday night Fish & Chips, their succulent steaks, grilled pizzas, juicy burgers and hot and cold sandwiches.
