Since 2006, Lucky Bones Backwater Grille has been serving up cold beers and casual conversation to locals and visitors of Lower Township.

Owned by local David Craig, the year-round restaurant offers a menu with foods made from scratch, occasional live music and a popular happy hour held 4 to 6 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays.

The area’s coldest beers:

Lucky Bones prides itself on having the coldest beers in the area — kept a few degrees colder then necessary and served out of ice-chilled glasses. It’s said to be cold enough to make the Coors Light marketing team jealous.

The restaurant offers 16 beers on a rotating tap, wines by the glass and bottled and mixed drinks.

Singer-songwriter showcase venue:

Cape May will be hosting its seventh annual singer-songwriter showcase this Friday and Saturday, with live performances by notable up-and-coming musicians at venues throughout the city, including Lucky Bones.

On Friday, March 28, Lucky Bones will feature John Hufford at 7:30 p.m., Matt Cummins at 8:15 p.m., Chris Kudela at 9 p.m., Dirk Schwenk at 9:45 p.m. and Kevin Conaway at 10:30 p.m.

The most anticipated performance of the weekend at Lucky Bones will be when New York City’s one-man band Brodeur takes to the stage. According to his biography, Brodeur has produced a series of critically praised recordings as a solo artist and as frontman for power-pop trios The Suggestions and Maggie Mayday.
