Today's guest blog is by my hilariously talented Facebook friend - Hugh Minor. He has that rare ability to be witty and insightful both on online (on FB) and in person. (Hey, just being honest. I mean I always tell people up front that I am way funnier and more fun on the blog and FB than I am in person.) Check out his review of a cool new place on the West Side of PVD.
There's nothing trashy about this trailer park. Or maybe just the right amount of trashiness...
Come to the West Side of Providence and check out something new and completely different. Except everything here is vintage and retro in style. The word "kitsch" doesn't even begin to describe it. And I mean that in the best possible way.
Ogie's Trailer Park is everything you've been waiting for in a "bar - restaurant - beer garden" but didn't know it. Combine the fun of trailer parks, drive-in movies, amusement parks, hotel lounges, and a flair for retro style and you get the idea. I don't want to put a date on a particular time period - there's a lot going on here!
The huge bar accommodates a good-sized crowd or choose a high top for a little more privacy. Sit with your clan in the lounge area and have your own key party. We won't judge. And there are even tables for eatin' grub.
Speaking of - food is ordered from a "take out" food truck located inside the bar. With so many options for either food on a roll or food in a bowl. You have to see it to believe it.
Did I mention the super friendly and kind of adorable staff who are committed to making your experience just right?
Get there soon before this place becomes the next big thing and you're left waiting outside wondering what fun everyone else is having inside. It's that good.
They're so hip, they don't need a website! But you can check them out on one of those other social media sites.
