BLACKFOOT â€” The highly acclaimed bluegrass duo "Otter Creek" will perform at the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center (BPAC) on Friday, offering bluegrass and country music fans an entertaining and unique "backstage" experience.
BPAC programming director Susan Mann, explained, "In a backstage event the audience sits right on the stage surrounding the performers in a circular seating arrangement. There is a lot of interaction between the performers and the audience. If you've never been to a backstage concert before you will absolutely love it."
Stanâ€™s Restaurant on Main Street in Blackfoot has been a gathering place in Blackfoot since 1951.
So when the longtime, family owned eatery closed its doors rather abruptly last week, the word got out fast, leaving patrons and vendors asking â€śwhy?â€ť
Attempts were made by the Morning News to reach the longtime restaurant owner,Gregory Richardson, for comment on the closure of Stanâ€™s last week.
Family spokesman Tom Richardson (Gregoryâ€™s brother) offered to shed some
insight on the closure and the history of Stanâ€™s.
