“I have loved Joe’s since the day I first set foot in the friendly confines in the mid 1980’s. The ice cold schooners, the sandwiches, the pretzels, and hot peppers that would remove the epidermis from your lips. Tasty pickled eggs too, although an egg did lodge in my lower intestine one time and gave me a case of gas that wouldn’t quit. Yet, it was good Joe’s gas! In addition, I’ve always admired the chocolate colored deer head on the wall – tactfully decorated for Christmas with a threadbare string of lights casually tossed onto his antlers. You just can’t get more festive than that! Perhaps my proudest day was when my photo (along with my old friend and Long Beach native Eddie Shirron) earned a spot on the Wall of Fame. That’s us at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Joe Josts forever!”
