GRAFTON—Following the governor’s mandate to do away with live music earlier this year, the White Front Tavern and Grill would like to announce their first performance being held this weekend.
Because the mandate was recently lifted, live music will once again commence, and the back deck will be open all summer long for performances to go on as usual.
This coming month, White Front Tavern and Grill will proceed to having open mic night every Thursday evening, and lady’s night will be held every Wednesday evening.
As everyone in the community may remember the White Front as just a local bar, that in fact has changed over the past few years. The White Front Tavern and Grill now has seating area for in-person dining and an option of take out.
They have a full menu with a variety of great food and a nice selection of beverages. Recently a kid’s section was added to the menu, giving children a wider variety of food options, as well.
Another bonus that was added to the local bar and grill was a breakfast menu. Breakfast is held every Saturday and Sunday from 8:00-11:00 a.m., and after that time, the establishment goes straight into their lunch service.
Staff members revealed that some local favorites are often served daily. Best-selling foods include wings, hoagies and their famous Tali Sausage Sandwich, featuring locally made sausage.
Speaking of locally made, on draft the High Ground beer Mandatory Fun is made locally and is served daily, along with other traditional favorites on draft such as Yuengling, Devil Anse, Blue Moon and Busch Light.
White Front hosts Happy Hour on Monday-Wednesday from 5:00-8:00 p.m. You can check out all daily and weekly specials by visiting the White Front Tavern and Grill’s Facebook page.
