Joe Muers Reunion - Detroit

Wakeley Bridge Aug 24, 2009 07:37 AM

John Bommarito (former waiter at Joe Muers Restaurant) is trying to organize a reunion for Joe's on the anniversary of their 80th year (October 30, 2009). The party is open to all employees and any customers that want to attend. The food details have not been totally worked out but it looks like it is going to be around $25-30 per person with a cash bar. The festivities are going to be held at the Italian American Cultural Center in Clinton Township (Romeo Plank south of Hall Road) where John is the manager. If you are interested, contact John or Jeff Lefevre (another former waiter) who also works there part time.

    As a minor side note....Over at Northville Charlies (My Mom used to work there) back in the 80's...at one time had three employees named John Lennon, Steve Miller and Jim Morrison. I ran into Steve years later working as a Sysco sales rep.

    I also find it funny maybe ironic that a seafood man was eventually eaten by fish.

      Wasn't Chuck Muer the restauranteur that was lost at sea? I thought Joe Muer just fell prey to the sharks at the bank.

        Oh your right...I should not post before coffee in the morning. :)

        At least they were related (somehow...can't remember how)...

        ...and yes I normally have coffee by 11....but I suffered plumbing issues last night....very late night.

        My mom would LOVE to come to the reunion! She & my dad would go to dinner there every Friday, and Fraiser would take care of them. Is he still around? My parents would take us kids as a special treat, and we would get the stuffed flounder. Mmmmmm, I can taste the delicate crab filling right now. (Those white beans were a big hit in our family, too!) We really miss the restaurant. What a wonderful idea for the reunion. Please keep all of us loyal followers in the loop as to how the plans are progressing. Thanks tons!

          will they be serving the white bean salad, cole slaw, and seared salmon with carmelized capers in parsley butter sauce? - all my favorites.
