open mics SUCK get real talent and pay them......and quit tipping off guitar thief's.......
My guitar was stolen at the Matinee’s open mic last Monday. The host, Brendan Kenney, told me that’s happened a few times there. And then, I sh*t you not, laughed about it.
Tomorrow!
This song goes out to the girl I saw last weekend and I think she saw me to …
yoooo
See you Saturday night...
Um, can you please explain this?

The Matinee in Highland Square.

We are the bar connected to Mr. Zub's Deli. Lots of crafty beers on tap. Cozy atmosphere. Sunday Liquor License. Karaoke on Mondays. DJ Mario Nemr on Tuesdays. DJ Benny spins da funk/soul every other Friday Night.

[03/20/20]   We miss everyone so much during these crazy times but we are happy to see how our city has once again banded together to help each other.

If you miss seeing Wes’ happy face around town, his band White Lighter is putting on a live show on Instagram @whitelighter, 9pm on Saturday. Drink a kenmore corona and pretend like your hanging out with us at the cop top.

If you’d like to help support any of our bartenders here or at Mr. Zubs or any other local bar, check out this virtual tip jar! Amazing stuff.
