This is my great grandmother Josephine. She come over on the boat from Poland when she was 14 years old. She landed in NYC and made her home in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. During prohibition she opened the first Joe’s in her basement. Everyone from the neighborhood was welcome- no matter if they were Italian or Irish or what have you. She provided a space where people could come together, eat, drink, listen to music and be part of a community. She is the inspiration for “Joe’s”. She taught me that everybody was equal. And that everybody deserves to be heard.
That’s what the experience of “Overheard at Joe’s” is all about. In the vein of the old school speak easy. A space where it’s safe to speak your mind. And speak your truth. And be heard. Because people listen. That’s the key. Respect for other people’s thoughts and beliefs. Especially if they’re different than yours.
We’re back this weekend June 21st-23rd @mchalesnyc We’ve got some great music on tap including @bipolarbradley on the 21st and 23rd and The Boxroom Larrys (@samunderwoodnyc ) on the 22nd. Tickets are just $20 and can be purchased by clicking the link in our bio.
Come and join us for a new kind of theatrical experience where the line between audience and characters is blurred so completely that you forget you’re at a show. It’s a happening. An event. And once you experience what’Joe’s’ has to offer, we’re sure to become your new favorite local.
You know you’ve got something to say. We see you. And we’ll listen. *********************************

Heartbreak Pier... how many good byes Last lingering looks and smiles of encouragement filled with the hope of reuniting once again My mother’s family stepped off this pier in search of “Merica” and all her promises.

In my eyes greatest, bravest, toughest and most respectable gentleman I’ve ever known. The man that taught me to be proud to be Irish and the one that’s taught me not to be ashamed to call Ireland home☘️ I love you forever grandad, there’s not a day where I don’t think about you. I talk very highly about you my man I love you forever and always. #ireland #irish #proudtobeirish #waterford #dungarvan #grandad

We have been so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to drive around Ireland. We booked our trip in early November and planned it all out ourselves and it has been amazing. One of my favorite parts so far have been the Cliffs of Moher. Tomorrow we make our way to Northern Ireland and then we head back home. But we don’t want to leave!
