Mr. Joe’s was a supper club at the old Midway Motor Lodge. The Midway was across from the Twins, another motel – sorry, motor lodge. For some reason the presence of two huge motels at the same intersection gave the corner some importance and permanence.

The Twins was demolished a few years ago, the space turned into an enormous hardware store. The Midway survives; heres’s a recent review. It's been remodelled from its original appearance, of course; who wants classic 60s motel styling when you can have late-80s / early 90s oversized cartoony Mansard roofs besides EVERYONE WITH A SENSE OF STYLE

Sorry, didn't meant to shout.
