Taproom on 19th Hosting a Block Party and Barbecue
Two years ago, owners Michael Strauss and Pete Fry took over Taproom on 19th at 19th and Ritner in deep South Philadelphia. Since then they’ve built a faithful local following. This Saturday, November 7th, from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. they’re hosting a second anniversary block party with Pigheaded BBQ, which is an award-winning Kansas City Barbecue Society Competition barbecue team based in Middletown, Delaware.
The Taproom’s chef Chris Speero will also be showcasing his anniversary burger, quarter pound of LaFrieda brisket burger, shaved steak, pork roll, tomato, fried onions, special sauce, cheese and all served on a pretzel bun.
There will also be a live performance by the Gin Canaries and a special cocktail designed by Lê from Hop Sing Laundromat. The South Philly Flip is maple bourbon, Cynar, egg and nutmeg.
The event is pay-as-you-go and a large tent will cover Ritner Street in front of the bar.
