Tito’s 2’s Day – Also for this 2’s Day, and for the rest of the week, we are offering our BEST price and by far the best price in town on Tito’s Handmade Vodka… $26.99/1.75 Liter Bottle, $19.99/1.0 Liter Bottle and $16.99/750 ml Bottle. Tito’s is issuing it’s first price increase in about six years effective March 1st, so I would suggest stocking up while the price is hot! Most retailers within a short distance of JJ’s are selling the 1.75 Liter bottles for $29.99-$32.99/bottle. We are consistently cheaper than that, but this month it has been exceptionally low.

Toby’s Lounge, Meckling South Dakota

Toby’s Lounge – What else is happening today? Well, Jane’s Boys, LLC (Myself, Nick & Jim Slattery) have closed a deal to acquire Toby’s Lounge in Meckling, South Dakota. Why is this important? Because it’s an iconic destination location for a lot of you who live in this area or attended the University of South Dakota. Why else? It’s where I poured my first drink in this industry 31 years ago. It’s also where my younger brother Jim met his wife Carmen and its where older brother Nick has made many memories with his family and friends in his twenty plus years in the Vermillion area.

It’s where our family farm is. The Sealey Family (Mom’s side) farm was established in 1915 just one-mile South and one-mile East of Meckling. Over the last 51 years of my life, there have been many trips to Toby’s for broasted chicken, and maybe a few drinks as we got older. It is a haven for locals, a respite spot for weary travelers, and a vision of great adventures to come for three boys growing up and going to visit the Grandparents over the years.

Along with our recent acquisition of Whimp’s Place in Burbank, Toby’s will carry on the traditions of those who came before us, but with a little flare you would expect from me in the adult beverage area, Nick in his robust tableside manor, and Jim in his desire to constantly learn and make the customer service experience exceptional. We look forward to seeing you!

Whisk(e)y Wednesday – Tomorrow is Whisk(e)y Wednesday at JJ’s! So, all spirits will be 30% off List Price, and it doesn’t matter how much you buy! We also have half price whiskey flights in JJ’s Bar and some excellent food for you to enjoy and soak up all of the whiskey goodness! We do have a feature flight this week.
