Hi, Sarah, I hope you're doing well. Congratulations on the baby! Just wanted to mention that I'd love to book my annual birthday bash with Kitten With a Whip either August 23rd or 24th. In the past, we've brought in over 70 people to these shows in addition to the regulars. Please let me know if you can book this show. -- Audrey, Kitten With a Whip (band)

I just want you all at PJ's to know how much your public appreciates what you do for us! We attend, dance, eat, drink, have fun weekly, because of the hospitable and courteous staff you have! Your cocktail waitresses(namely,Traci, Heather, and Sabrina), are the resident Queens of Hospitality-you should be very proud of these ladies! We are! :)

Hello there, I am looking to buy beer taps for $3.00 to $5.00 a piece. I will buy any tap, but ideally ones that are from San Diego breweries and preferably in lots of 10 or more. If you're interested, just let me know what you have and I'll swing by your bar. Also interested in lighted beer signs and neons. Thanks!

Please bring back "Kingfish" soon. They were the best band I've seen at Pal Joey's. We have a regular "crew" that goes to PJ's and I've told them about Kingfish. Thank you for great live music!

Hi!! Years ago, in the 70's-90's, this was the place I always thought of first when going out!! But heard several years ago that you closed. Nice to see that you are back up and running!!

Miss you all over there at the Lounge... I am doing well and really getting some things done here at home. It's been a long overdue extended vacation and im lovin it! Over a decade in the bars, and I can count on one hand how many days i missed scheduled work, and NO vacations taken whatsoever 0.o Miller and I are still friends - and Mr. Luster always believed in me (once he realized who I was and could actually remember my name;) Sarah was a blast and such a joyful spirit, but most of the thanks for making pal joeys happen at the [re] start in Oct 2008 go to Carol - the best Red ever! She and I set up the bar our selves and went 2 1/2 days straight no sleep from the time doors opened til she got the shifts filled! Cindi, Laura, Traci the golden girls of pals... Richard, Sam, Mr Shockey (the shark) my fav's through the 5 years i was there. No one had it better than I did having the whole bar at my disposal for work and fun any time i wanted. Thanks all for the memories, I couldn't forget you if i tried. You may only be a stranger once at pal joeys - but hang around long enough, and you'll be a friend forever!

Looking forward to Rockin out with Y'all- with Misty and the Moby's, tonight! Pal Joey's has become one of my favorite, small music venues to perform at. I came here, for my first time, to watch the 'Fro Brigham band,' back when I was barely 21 years old. From that moment, I was hooked, and I started bringing others to see Fro and his band perform, here. So it's and extra honor to play this stage; there's lots of great history here...and I believe this helps create Pal Joey's wonderful atmosphere, that we all enjoy, so much. ;-) Rock On! Rick Favale
