Packing up the Park
The time has come. The moment we've all been dreading...We're packing up the Park. It’s officially time to say goodbye to Paradise Park. That’s right - July 28th will be the final night to eat, drink and rock at 411 Broadway.
When we announced that Paradise Park would be closing, we were overwhelmed with the response. We had so many people immediately recall their personal stories of the role Paradise Park has played in their lives. Multitudes of people reminisced about how they met their mate there. Someone even started an online petition to keep the doors open. To say we have been touched by the level of your devotion would be an understatement. Thank you for your love and dedication to our beloved trailer park bar that opened 11 years ago on the wrong side of Broadway.
In these “final daze” of Paradise Park, we have a few special things going on to make sure we go out with a bang. This Friday, July 27th, from 7 to 11 pm we’re hosting “Lover’s Paradise” in honor of all the love connections that have been made at Paradise over the years! Our very own online ordained minister Mr. Max Goldberg will be coming out of retirement to unite lovers in not-so-holy matrimony (or to renew vows!). Participating couples will enjoy ring pops, top hats, and tiaras with veils. The happy couples will also receive a coupon for a free chili cheese tot and sweet tea, as well as a commemorative koozie, which we’ll be giving away all weekend. There will also be a photo booth at the bar all weekend so people can commemorate their final shenanigans at Paradise Park.
Paradise Park is always kid-friendly until 9pm every night, and on Saturday, July 28th from 11-4 pm we’d love for folks to bring their kids and enjoy $5 burgers (and $6 pitchers for the grown ups!).
Saturday, July 28th will be the final night at Paradise Park. As every other Saturday night, it will be a party! Due to popular demand, we will be selling 50 framed pieces of the astroturf, of which a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Oasis Center. Paradise Park has a special affinity for the Oasis Center, as it has hosted their annual Hot Chicken and Jorts fundraiser 10 times over the past 9 years, raising nearly $100,000 for local at-risk youth.
The final last call will be at 2:30am on July 29th, and at 3:00am the front doors of Paradise Park will close forever. We hope you will come and celebrate with us at some point over the next few days; we would love to share a pitcher of beer with you. And fear not – Paradise Park Trailer Resort is portable and might just pop up across the city from time to time! You can’t keep a good trailer park down, you know!
