The Best of Everything

AS IS THE CASE
whenever a nitery is
changed over, there are pros
and cons regarding its alt-
erations.
This is the case with
Jakks on Greenfield and 10
Mile . . . which recently un-
derwent a facelift with more
people than not thinking it
a rejuvenation for the bet-
ter.
Some say the intimacy is
gone . . . Others say it now
has more class . . . that the
neighborhood saloon look is
gone.
Actually, the change is
really in keeping with the
times ... As the saying
goes, you can't halt prog-
ress ... The day of the
large piano bar seems to
be fading in favor of
larger dance floors and
wider expanse for all-
around viewing.
This, Jakks has ac-
complished . . . The piano
bar that once stood in the
center is now at the east end
. . . much smaller (only five
seats), with wrought iron
railing on the sides . . . Ac-
tually, Carl Steger at the
piano bar can now be seen a
lot better . . . from all over
. . . elevated on a little
stage.
It is good showplace for
his fine piano playing and
singing talents . . . which
heretofore seemingly have
gone unnoticed with
favoritism toward his re-
partee on the egos of cus-
tomers . . . Carl's ability as a
singer and piano playeris so
very much better than he
was able to display before.
Jakks is wide open now
. . . with a 165-foot parquet
dance floor . . . There are no
more booths by the bar .. .
All are along the north and
west walls . . . A long one
that was formerly in the
rear has been moved to the
front -beneath lattice work
that covers the doorway
area.
The separation from
bar to dining room is an
asset ... and it will be
doubly so in winter when
the cold winds enter
everytime the door
opens.
Seating for dining is over
100 . . . Plus the regular 22
stools at the bar . . . there is
a six-foot stand-up sector
where booths used to be as
people entered.
Jakks has been known as
a place to see and be seen
. . . as well as much noted for
its fresh food and reasona-
ble prices.
The new layout is such
that the entire room can be
seen from anywhere .. .
There are no more parti-
tions between the bar and
dining areas.
It is interesting to see
the looks on people's
faces as they walk in for
the first time after re-
modeling Jakks' look
is so very different .. .
wide open instead of cut
up ... The bar will even-
tually also have a new
look ... and gold tablec-
loths have replaced the

fnrmpr rilactirc

Talk is that the name will
be changed, too.
Dick and Aggie LaCombe
took over ownership and op-
eration on Oct. 18, 1980 .. .
It is in their best interests
that the image be changed
. . . Those against the alter-
ation are selfish persons .. .
The economy of today dic-
tates how most essential it
is to go with trends that
bring people . . . not only
on the weekend, but during
the week as well . . . Club <
owners who can attain_ the
new looks within their poc-
ketbook allotment are bet-
ter off . . . Two bad some
people can't realize this.
Dancing is back . . . the
way it used to be . . . close
. . . Folks who go out to eat
also like the "floor show"
atmosphere they are given
by dancers . . . Those who
like to dance want to spend
their money in a place that
affords them this recrea-
tional activity.
And why not? ... In a
night club, if the food is
good and folks can get
dancing, too, for the same
price, why shOuldn't they
accept it? Money is tight
. . . Patrons want as much
as they can get for their
dollars.
Some of the "loyal regu-
lars" had gotten themselves
in such a rut . . . seeing the
same thing and getting used
to it at Jakks . . . that they
cannot yet realize the
change . . . Amateur singers
who come to vocalize will
love it.
Jakks has changed, in my
opinion, for the better .. .
The dingy neighborhood bar
look is gone . . . and in its
stead is a restaurant-lounge
that has a supper club style
look . . . It will certainly re-
turn customers who previ-
ously stayed away . . . plus
bring in new faces.
WHEN HE TAKES
over, Chuck Muer will
make Sussex House another
family tavern . . . like his
very successful Bloomfield
Charley's.
It will open about early
October, with the 12 Mile
and Evergreen location a
prime one for Chuck since
many of his current custom-
ers already come from this
area.
"We thought it would be
an opportunity to make it a
little more convenient for
them," said Jim Mac-
Donald, Chuck's marketing
director.
The interior will be re-
modeled for a totally new
look and-new feel . . . brigh-
ter, lighter and more fun.
The existing lower level
will remain available for
banquets and meetings
. .. making this the first
Chuck Muer facility
where a separate area
has been set aside solely
for private parties.
The menu will feature
most of the Chuck Muer
favorites, "full of value and
variety" as Jim puts it .. .
with Chef Larry Pagliara's
very popular new
