Spend Labor Day at Taproom on 19th

Ending summer with a crabfest and barbecue isn't a bad way to go out.

From Foobooz: On Saturday, Tap Room on 19th is hosting an End Of Summer Block Party and Crab-Fest with Maryland Blue Claws, kielbasa, burgers, hot dogs, corn, potatoes and more. The fun kicks off at 1 p.m. Little Nonna's is having spaghetti and crab night on Sunday and Labor Day. Little Nonna's will be opening at 3 p.m. each day and offering a $35 dinner that will include the spaghetti and crab plus summer salad and garlic bread for the table. More here.

Labor Day and the unofficial end of summer is staring us in the face. But at Taproom on 19th, that unofficial end does come with a Old Bay dusted lining.

The South Philadelphia bar will be hosting a Labor Day Crab Fest and BBQ on Monday, September 5th.  There will be Maryland Blue Claw crabs, brisket, ribs, pulled pork, basically everything you could ever want or need out of a barbecue all made by owner Michael Strauss’ side project, Mike’s BBQ. There will also be some Maryland beers on tap like Stillwater, DuClaw and Heavy Seas as well as local favorites.

Strauss is also promising a water slide, live music, and other “surprises.” Not sure what those surprises include, I guess you will have to go to find out.

The event will be free entry all day and runs from noon to 7 p.m. Not a bad note to end the summer on.
