117. Goodnight Gracie Jazz and Martini Bar – April 18, 2015 – Royal Oak, MI

On this Saturday night I was in Royal Oak to see one of my favorite comedians, Marc Maron, at the Royal Oak Music Theatre. We had a pre-show dinner at Goodnight Gracie’s, a tiny little martini bar next to D’Amato’s – and apparently owned by the same people, because they share a website and a food and drink menu. Does that mean I’ve already been to Goodnight Gracie if I’ve previously eaten at D’Amato’s? I’m going to say no. They’re next to each other but contained in separate spaces; I went to the latter for a fancy Italian dinner; and this was happy hour (yes, they do extend happy hour to Saturday night here – exciting!). Six-dollar martinis and eight-dollar three-plates of sliders on a Saturday night – I’ll take it!
