Porky’s Last Stand knows that everyone loves a party. That’s why this summer they began themed Friday night parties that take place every week from 8 to 10 p.m. The parties include themed drinks and patrons are encouraged to dress up to match the theme. Patrons not only enjoy drink specials, they also receive raffle tickets for every drink and food purchase and for their attire. The tickets are used to win prizes from local businesses that participate in the parties. This summer many businesses have participated. Marco Island Nail Emporium gave out gift certificates for manicures and other nail services and Executive Auto Repair gave away t-shirts, oil changes and tire rotations.
This Friday, will be the Sam Adams Glass Keeper Octoberfest Party with prizes from Progressive Auto Center like complimentary car washes.
“From 8 to 10 p.m. guests will buy a 16 ounce stein of Sam Adams for $6 and they get to keep the stein,” said “Toni Ison, general manager of Porky’s.
On August 26, the Piggy Paradise party will feature a drink served in a whole pineapple and more giveaways. There is also live entertainment by Jezebel on Fridays and the kitchen is open until Midnight.
“We get pretty good crowds any time we have live entertainment,” Ison said.
Porky’s features signature barbecue, steaks and seafood in a family friendly atmosphere. They are open seven days a week: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to Midnight Friday and Saturday; and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays.

Besides the weekly parties and entertainment Porky’s also holds different fund raisers and charity events each month.
“This month we are collecting school supplies for kids that can’t afford supplies,” Ison said. “We collect them and take them to Father Kyle at St. Mark’s who distributes them.”
As the summer comes to a close Porky’s will continue the Friday night parties, and they will also bring back their weekly football grill outs, which are local favorite.
“We are getting ready to start the football grill outs with Porky’s cajun sausage and bratwurst,” Ison said. “They start the 11th of September and we will have sponsors. People will get prizes if they wear their favorite teams and it is fun because everyone is rooting and yelling.”
Ison said that the parties keep the atmosphere fun and light for locals and visitors.
