1964 University Ave. at Prior, St. Paul. Joe was Joe Kozlak. There from at least March 1962.
Quoting James Lilecs:
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 [as a Days Inn]. It’s been remodeled 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.
