Smith’s Family Restaurant is throwing a block party this weekend.
The Pine Street restaurant is celebrating the end of summer with a massive community barbecue that’s free to the public.
Hamburgers, hot dogs and all the fixings are on the menu for the event Saturday. It starts at noon in the parking lot at 1425 W. Pine St. and runs until 4 p.m.
Owners Danny and Laura Smith said surrounding businesses on the block — Walt Fitness, Hot Mama’s Espresso, DeBroeck Solid Surface, Comfort Inn and Holiday Inn Express — have embraced the restaurant as neighbors. Saturday’s celebration will include live music and hourly prize drawings.
