The latest edition to the burgeoning bar scene in Bridgeport is a new sports bar opening on 35th Street, directly across the street for Sox Park and in the same building as Gate 5. Though it carries the unfortunately tacky corporate-sponsored name Bacardi at the Park, the place looks great, and hosted a soft opening today. I wasn’t able to attend, but got some photos from a guy who did. I hope you like HDTVs because this place has a ton of them, however, for me, this is the show-stopper.
Yes, that is a 2-piece, I’m guessing approximately 8-10 feet tall poster of Al Smith getting an accidental beer shower in Game 2 of the 1959 World Series. That is just phenomenal. If the rest of this place is as Sox-oriented as this one corner appears to be, I’m going to be pretty happy.
