Happy Tuesday everyone! Who is ready for The 4th of July!? We will be open regular hours through SUNDAY (actually open until 8:00pm on Sunday, July 3rd) but we will be CLOSED on Monday, July 4th. So please plan ahead and get your goods ahead of time!

We have another crazy week coming up but wanted to get this out before all of the craziness ensues! We will be doing beverage service tonight for Silencer Central’s Grand Opening featuring country singer Tyler Farr. The concert is free, the beer is not! Festivities start at 5:30pm and run until 9:00pm. Stop out and see us! We also have a few other things going on this week…

Cocktails & Cars – Week 4!

This weekly event is going to continue to grow!  Tom Watson will be providing the entertainment from 6:00pm – 8:00pm. Cars are welcome to start assembling in the NORTH parking lot after 5:00pm on Tuesday, June 28th and stay as long as you want! So, what do you do while here?

  • Walk around and check out the cars while enjoying food and a beverage from JJ’s Bar! We will be offering Buy One Get One HALF OFF tap beers and signature cocktails this week. Plus, we will be offering $2 off pizzas and Pretzel Bites & Cheese.
  • Stop in and throw axes at JJ’s Axes & Ales 10 throws for $10, or throw some darts, or shoot some pool! Have you seen our game room? We now have THREE pool tables and are planning on hosting a few pool league teams this coming Fall! If you know of a team that might be interested in shooting out of JJ’s Axes & Ales, please let me know!

PLEASE NOTE: ALL adult beverages consumed in JJ’s parking lot MUST BE PURCHASED FROM JJ’S BAR. Meaning, you cannot buy a 6-Pack or any other package from our retail store (or any other store) and drink it in our parking lot. If this happens, you will be asked to leave. Also, no outside food is allowed. If you are hungry, we have an awesome kitchen and great menu for you to order from and the kitchen is now open until 9:00pm! Please don’t be that guy and cause an uncomfortable conversation, as that conservation will take place with me, and I am not good at uncomfortable conversations. ALSO – Kids are welcome to join you to check out the cars but are NOT ALLOWED in JJ’s Bar or on the patio except to use the restroom, so please plan accordingly.
