Today at Cj’s, We had a regular guest come in that we have not been in a few weeks named Frank. He came in alone and sat at the bar, when typically he would come in with his wife and sit at a table. After finishing his lunch (a cheddar burger an a 160z Goose Island IPA) he asked if Joey could come around the bar so he could ask him a question. Upon Joey going over he got choked up and said that his wife had passed away last Tuesday and it was his fist time out since she passed. He said CJ’s and Bedford T-Bones were two of their favorite places to go together and he was always so happy with our food and staff and also the generosity of other guests. He said their were so many times that his tab got paid for or someone bought a round of drinks so he wanted to pay it forward today and paid for another bar guests tab. Joey then paid it forward to Frank and gave him a $50 GC to come back and see all of us here at Cj’s as he knows how difficult it must be for him to come out alone but that our store is full of so many great memories. He got teary eyed and gave Joey a hug and thanked him. The gentlemen who’s tab got paid for then left $20 for the bar staff to continue to pay forward. It was a pay it forward kind of day here at Cj’s!!
