The Bar Out Back is back


By Dan Ping

Sanford’s favorite biker hang out is back in business.

The Bar Out Back reopened Sunday in what the new owners thought would be a “soft opening.” By 3 p.m., the grounds were packed with more than 500 motorcycles. Bartenders had gone through 50 cases of Bud Light by early afternoon.

Co-owner Frank Ioppolo said he did no prior advertising for the event other than a single post on the Bar Out Back’s Facebook page.

“I think people are happy we reopened,” Ioppolo said.
