Good morning! Happy Friday to you! Not looking to be the most pleasant weekend coming up, BUT it is the weekend and there is quite a bit going on!

Congrats to all of the graduates from Augie and USF! Graduation for both schools is this weekend. We have TWO of JJ’s finest graduating this weekend. Sydney Capers is graduating with a degree in Biology. He is off to Texas for a job in healthcare. Kailie Hopkins is graduating with a degree in Media Studies and Marketing. She is going to be coming on fulltime at JJ’s as one of our lead bartenders and also our social media marketing and advertising specialist and is also studying for the realtor exam. Both are graduates from Augustana University!

We have had two other graduates this month as well. Lauren Aden graduated with a Bio-Chem degree from Truman State University in Missouri. She will be joining our event team as a lead event facilitator. Noah Bunger graduated from SDSU with a degree in linguistics. He is also a lead bartender and will be joining our culinary team in The Boozy Bakery.

Congrats to all of you! Once JJ’s family, always JJ’s family! We love you and are very proud of what you have accomplished!

Cocktails & Cars – JJ’s this Summer!

This Summer, we are going to be doing something a little different on Tuesdays. We are inviting ANYONE with a classic, custom or otherwise badass truck, car or motorcycle that you want to show off! We will be showcasing these vehicles EVERY Tuesday through the Summer, starting June 7th, from 6pm to 8pm in our North parking lot. We will expand to other parts of our lot as needed but stick with the North for now. What is going to be happening?

  • Walk around and check out the cars while enjoying a beverage from JJ’s Bar! We will have drink and food specials to be had during each event.
  • Stop in and throw axes at JJ’s Axes & Ales, or throw some darts, or shoot some pool!
  • Listen to LIVE music on JJ’s patio from 6pm to 8pm.

We really want to make this a weekly destination event for car enthusiasts, cocktail enthusiasts and live music enthusiasts who are looking for something to do on an otherwise quiet Tuesday evening in the Summer!

Anybody who brings a vehicle down to participate in the show will receive a complimentary beverage. If that’s not your thing, we will make sure you get something for taking the time to shine up your wheels and bring them down!

Dogs, yes. Kids, no.

There has been a bit of conversation in the media lately about dogs in restaurants. It is certainly a growing trend, and we are happy to be part of that trend! Any four-legged fur-baby is welcome to join you while you hang out in JJ’s Bar or on the patio! We only ask that they are behaved and remain on a leash. We also ask that you indulge yours truly and let me scritch their ears.

There has also been talk of late about kids in bars. We would love to be able to serve your youngsters, but if they are mobile, they are not allowed by law to be in our bar. The only time anyone under 21 (not confined to a baby carrier) is allowed in a bar is when that bar sells more food than booze. That is not the case with JJ’s, so sorry, but dogs, yes but kiddos, no. If you are just dying for some brisket nachos and can’t find a sitter, you can always order carryout at https://order.jjswine.com.

I hope you have an awesome weekend! If you are looking for something to do, come and see us! Or stop into JJ’s Axes & Ales! Book your time to throw online at https://www.jjsaxes.com! Or just walk-in. If you have to wait for cage time, you can shoot some pool, throw some darts or try your luck with Video Lottery!
