Start Up Date: 1989 (approx) Original Owners: Joe (now deceased) and Pat (Patricia)
Date: 1991 Reason: Joe and Pat wanted something unique for the Bar and Grill because they felt that Joe and Pat's wasn't an exciting name (according to patron Bruce Hooker) Contest Method: Suggestions dropped into a Pickle Jar Contest Winner: Bruce Hooker (USAF) of Tonapah, NV (formerly of Elk River, MN) walked in and asked "What's up with the Pickle Jar on the Shelf?" Pat explained that they were having a Naming Contest for the Bar and Grill. Hooker then went on to ask "What's wrong with Joe and Pat's?". Pat replied that they wanted something more exciting than Joe and Pat's Bar and Grill. Hooker then drew out on a napkin "A'le'Inn". Pat said put "Little" in front of it and then said, "Joe come here and look at this". Joe came over, looked at the napkin and then promptly grabbed the pickle jar off the shelf. Bruce thought his suggestion was going into the jar but instead Joe threw out the other suggestions (there were maybe 4 or 5) and then said "Done".
Prize: Dinner for 4 at the Sahara (maybe it was for 2)
Pat and a new Guy (because Joe died)
