It is the last full week of August! Wow, this summer went by fast! Time to get ready for cooler weather, football, and everything else that come with the change of seasons! That being said, we still have a little bit of summer left, so we are going to do what we can to make the most of it! The weather is looking cooperative to take in a lot of the activity going on around town this weekend. But if hanging out at the lake or at home is your plan, let us know what we can do to help get you down the road with the proper goods!

Upcoming Holidays and Events

As we look forward to the cooler weather and impending holidays, it is my duty to remind you of what we offer for event services. Particularly where the beverages are concerned.

We offer a number of full-service options for beverage service in your home, office or wherever else you want to throw a party. We also offer a number of scaled back services to get you what you need for happy guests and a smaller budget. We can really work around most budgets with a variety of different things, so ultimately, it’s up to you how crazy we can get! If you would like more information on what we can provide, please email

Need a place to throw a party? The Event Room at JJ’s is a perfect spot for small groups to larger small groups. We have had groups as small

Grazing tables are prepared on site, typically in JJ’s Event Room! Priced per person and loaded with all kinds of meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, desserts and sauces.

as 10 people and as many as 80 or so. Ideally, we can seat 64 people, but with standing room and flex seating we can accommodate a few more. Rates to use the room are hourly. The cost to rent the room is the mitigated by food purchases from our kitchen and The Boozy Bakery, but also by pre-arranged or pre-purchased beverage options! If you are interested in using The Event Room at JJ’s for and upcoming holiday party, rehearsal dinner, graduation party or retirement party, please email and we will get you all of the details!

JJ’s Axes & Ales is another option for throwing a party! You can rent the whole facility, with or without axe throwing and have the whole place to yourself! We can even place a special event license for your private party so that you can have a full bar to offer your guests! If you are interested in using JJ’s Axes & Ales for an upcoming event, company gathering or family reunion, please email!
