Plattsburgh For those looking for a break from the usual night out, Conroy’s Organic hosts a weekly BBQ Night with burgers right from the farm, live music, family fun activities and more every Thursday.
“We have games in the back, and the kids just run wild,” said Co-Owner of Conroy’s Organics Mary Conroy-Bushey. “We decided to make good use of all the space we have out here and encourage people to come out and enjoy the fresh air.”
BBQ Nights are held from 4 to 7 p.m. every Thursday through the end of August at Conroy’s Organics, 8173 Route 9 in Plattsburgh. BBQ Nights include an accompaniment of music, games such as games like Kan Jam, volleyball, horseshoes, and ladder ball, wine tastings from the Conroy’s shelf, and music to keep the family barbecue alive long after customers have cleaned their plate.
For $8.95, guests can have a Conroy’s Beef Burger, a side of salad and a beverage. Or for $9.95, the Conroy’s beef burger can be substituted for the weekly specialty burger that varies week to week, or for $7.95 guests can have a veggie burger.
Conroy’s paired with the ROTA Gallery in Plattsburgh to connect with local musicians who perform during the BBQ Nights.
“In approaching acts to play at the Conroy’s BBQ Nights, I tried to think about showcasing the diversity of our music scene here,” said ROTA Gallery Matt Hall. “I wanted to give local and regional artists playing original music a chance to share their stuff at a new venue.”
Elliot Daughtery, Marketing Director for Conroy’s, said attendance has grown more and more since the first Burger Night on Thursday, June 13.
“It’s very family oriented, cows will come over because of all the excitement, each musician brings their own younger crowd and then we have an older following and families with children,” Daughtery said. “It’s a pretty mixed blend and we wanted it that way.”
