This was the final weekend of Black Star Pirate BBQ to be in operation. They have lost their lease and will shutter at their present location. Tony Carriacci owner of BSPB is a member of our Galileo Club. He has been a member and a good friend to our Italian club. We decided to go as a group to bid him farewell at his restaurant.
We had an impromptu cocktail station set up in the parking lot an hour before the 11:00 am opening. We chatted and imbibed. Eleven o’clock rolled around pretty quick and we did not even notice the huge line that had already formed. We were not the only ones that had come to say goodbye. We got in line.
It was a festive crowd entertained by live music. The weather was perfect. The food was fantastic. We all scratched our heads wondering why all good things must come to an end. We all hope the best success for Tony in the future.
