Originally it was a Top Cat Fast Food Restaurant? It was Tom Boy Hamburgers originally, evolving into Top Boy Hamburgers (saved money by not changing the sign too much). The outside sign was repurposed from the buildings first incarnation as Top Boy? Hamburgers. Jim also owned for Big Boy Beer and Burger Grand Rapids Eats and Treats that became Sensations. D-J’s was named such for the early partnership of Denny and Jim. The ‘D was Denny Patterson and ‘J was Jim Gibfried, both D&J taught at CC. It was a hopping spot.

    This was , The Elbow Room bar, that always had a row of Harley Davidson bikes all lined up. THEN it turned into a rock and roll bar Danny J’s, it was 1.5 blocks from my house. Was so cool but we could never get in, then we tried to look through the edges of the drapes in the front windows and some stupid waitress would cover the spot sliding the drape over LoL

    DJ’s Lounge is now American Family Care (AFC) Urgent Care. They built a new building for the urgent care.
