Still wondering what to do on Independence Day? Well, for starters you can declare your independence from the stove (or the grill, which can get pretty hot and sticky when you're the one doing the grilling).
Why not leave that grilling to somebody else? Like Gerhardt Yaskow, the owner of Gene McCarthy's Tavern, in the old First Ward? (Above is a picture of Gerhardt's sister, Suzette, tending bar).
This announcement just came in from Gerhardt and naturally we halted our work to study it:
On July 4th, we will be open only during the evening hours starting at 5:00. I will be cooking free hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill again (like last year, and yes, all mirco-craft drafts will be only $2 during the evening), plus drink specials on domestic beers. So if you want to grab a chair and watch the fireworks from an Old First Ward institution, then RSVP or just stop down and visit us throughout the night.
Free hot dogs! Free hamburgers! Sounds good to us!
Gene McCarthy's Tavern is at 73 Hamburg St. The phone number is 855-8948.
