Gonna Party Like It's 1999

Hunting & Gathering

BY BRITTANY MATTIE SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY SEP 20, 2019

A local charmer turned 20 years old this September and we haven’t forgotten to wish them a happy birthday. J.R.’s Old Packinghouse Cafe candidly threw it back to the late ‘90s with a promotion all month long to celebrate its decade milestone—a special menu with prices from the year 1999. So with the end of September looming in sight, don’t forget to snag J.R. and his family’s invite to indulge in authentic Cuban dishes and American comfort staples at nostalgic bargains in its new backyard venue.

After dancing a hole in the mud to one of the many killer bands playing every night for the month of September, “kick up your boots” to order some grub from the 20th anniversary “Come Back for Roll Back” 1999-priced menu. From homemade chicken empanadas and Cuban bowls, to BBQ pork nachos and Boom Boom shrimp, wipe the mess from your mouth for $8 each. And with a few extra bucks left over in your pocket for an adult beverage, take advantage of a classic or berry mojito with Captain Morgan or the Packing House Anniversary Punch with a tequila floater, for a whopping $7. Whether you make it in in the next 10 days, or thereafter, it’s always a darn good time at this Old Florida treasure.
