Celebrate 4/20 with a Happy Deal from Joebar

Do you remember the excitement of getting a Happy Meal when you were a kid? Not only did you get your own perfectly portioned burger or nuggets with fries and a drink, but you got a surprise toy too! Sure, you knew what the theme was, but would you get the toy that you really wanted? 

Joebar in Hazel Park is bringing back that excitement we experienced as kids, but to adults. Every Tuesday, they offer a $10 Happy Deal. The deal usually is comprised of an amazing specialty burger, fries, and a Miller High Life. And, of course it wouldn't be happy if there wasn't some sort of surprise that came along with the meal. So, Joebar teams up with other local businesses to offer a "toy" for adults that comes with each meal.

This week, in honor of 4/20 and those that like to celebrate with a little flower, Joebar has an extra special Happy Deal. They have teamed up with their neighbor New Standard Cannabis for this week's toy. The burger is also extra special and is called The Luau. It features classic Joebar patties topped with American Cheese, Pineapple Chutney, Lettuce, and Honey Sriracha. 

If you want to celebrate 4/20 with a $10 Happy Deal, you have to pre-order your meal here. Pre-order starts at noon and pickup begins after 4 p.m. Joebar is located in Hazel Park at 23839 John R. To stay in the loop on Joebar's weekly $10 Happy Deals, follow them on Facebook and Instagram

Monroe Street Theatre has featured newer films, family films, and classics during its run, but sadly that run is coming to an end. This is the final weekend to check out the theatre. Friday's movie is Shrek 2, Saturday is The Croods, and Sunday is Forrest Gump. Tickets are $20 per car and can be purchased at DetroitDriveIn.com

Revisit the Art of Experience at Willis Show Bar this Weekend


It's been almost four hundred days since Willis Show Bar's house band has filled their legendary room with music. It's been almost thirteen months since their mixologist has shaken up one of their signature cocktails and it's been way too long since any of us has had the kind of classic night out on the town that only Willis Show Bar can offer. Thankfully, this weekend that all changes because WSB is ready to welcome everyone back for a socially distanced experience that you cannot find anywhere else.

Willis Show Bar will be open for service this Friday and Saturday, April 9 and 10th. They have always had limited seating, but in order to keep everyone safe and make sure that they have a good experience, their seating will be even more limited. They also have a new menu and their house band will be taking the stage to entertain you two times a night from 7-8 p.m. and 9-10 p.m. Their house band is comprised of some of the city's best artists, which means that they never disappoint. This isn't just a bar or venue reopening, this is the art of the experience returning to Motown.

Following this weekend's reopening celebration, Willis Show Bar will be open Thursday-Saturday from 5 p.m. - 11 p.m. The house band will be performing from 7-8 p.m. and 9-10 p.m. nightly and there is a $5 cover, all of which goes directly to the performers. Please note, you do not need reservations to visit unless you have a party of 5-6 people. Also, there is no cover before 6 p.m. and Happy Hour starts at 5.

Willis Show Bar is officially ready to welcome you back for a classic night out on the town!
