“About 10 years my wife and I were in a truck stop in Denver. My wife pointed out to me that a truck driver had just gotten out of his truck and had a t-shirt on with my name on it. I went over to him and asked him where he got that shirt. He told me all about the greatest bar on earth and that he went there every time he got to LA. The next summer we planned our vacation to go to Long Beach and find Joe Jost’s tavern. We had a wonderful vacation but the highlight was the afternoon we spent at Joe Jost’s. I now have about 10 Joe Jost’s t-shirts, They’re great and I wear them proudly, Hope to be back there some day soon.”
