Hey - I love Billy Joe's - mostly because they totally tolerated me playing too much on Open Mike night (especially the last time I was there). I played and hung out there for about 6 months, but had to move on because of work. The steak dinner on Tuesdays is great for $8, the Open Mike was decent quality (much better than other places in Des Moines), and Angie and Linda are great. And, occasionally, Al, I do Dream About Des Moines! Plus you can play Buzzkill, I mean Buzztime there. You can karaoke other nights - I'll leave that to the rest of you. But go there!!!
