You may have noticed that Geoffrey J’s upcoming gig has been cancelled at Hinano Cafe.

Why? Cause Hinano Cafe celebrates their 50th anniversary. The next couple of weekends they will be holding all sorts of events….but it all starts tonight.

I lovHinanoCafee this sleazy biker bar. They have fabulous burger, free popcorn and bowling alley wine….but after the first one it doesn’t really matter, right? OK I’m a cheap date.

Tonight they offer free food with the purchase of a drink….beer and wine only btw and wine coolers, mikes hard lemonade too

What: 50th anniversary celebration
Where: Hinano Cafe 15 Washington Blvd.,
When: All night baby!
