Welcome to the Monday Night Meetup series!
This event is open to all:
Especially those who hate Mondays.
Especially for those who want to check out the different restaurant and bar scenes in the Providence area.
We are always welcoming new members!
It is very helpful to know in advance what our attendance will be.
This week's location is: Black Duck Tavern - East Providence
With 1/2 Price Burgers!
We will be out on the BRAND NEW patio (weather permitting, otherwise indoors). Please be advised that the patio seating is given preference by the venue to patrons who are dining. We are unable to "exclusively" reserve that space. Please be understanding of this policy.
"The Black Duck was the most notorious rum running vessel in West port. Its was a fifty foot vessel that was powered by two twin air powered motors that were capable of up to thirty miles per hour. It was the bane of the coast guard in that area because it could just about out run every last one of their patrol boats. It was finally stopped after it took a spray of bullets from a coast guard because it zigged when it should’ve zagged. The bullets rang out across the Newport bay in December of 1929!"
The Watchemoket Bar opened the day Prohibition was repealed... December 5th, 1933... The Black Duck Tavern continues the tradition to this day!
Hope to see you there!
"Come early, come late, leave early, stay late - everyone is always welcome..."
