Willy Jaks will be re-opening at the same location. Corie has bought the rights from his wife and is 100 percent financed. Currently they are gutting the inside of the building and plan on rebuilding there. The place will not be named Willy Jaks however. They will have the same menu and atmosphere as Willy Jaks though and will be adding steaks to the menu

Nope, it is nowhere near open yet, although they have started work on the inside. They have a long way to go before reopening unfortunately.

I takes people with real courage to open an adult business in Metropolis. Until people with guts are elected to decision making positions Metropolis doesn't stand a chance to progress.

With Honeywell all but shut for good, EEI laying off and cutting back, USEC on its last legs and the new riverboat in Cape will most likely send Harrah's floating on down the river, the town will be a ghost town before long anyway. There won't be anybody that will be able to go out and have a good in that cesspool of a town.

For the most current info on Willy Jaks feel free to attend this evening's Industrial Committee Meeting 6 PM at City Hall right before tonight's City Council Meeting. Their agenda shows that there will be an update on DC Ventures and where they stand with Willy Jaks. I will also let everyone know on here what the update is as well for those who can't make it.

no real update to indicate when it will be opening again unfortunately. Apparently the building is still being appraised and everything is tied up in red tape and paperwork at this time. If you are on Facebook here is the video I recorded from the Industrial Committee Meeting where they were discussing Willy Jaks. #!/photo.php?v=494342303928901 Not sure how good the audio will be though. Hopefully, you have good speakers I hate recording from my phone considering the poor audio in the council chambers with their microphones.

You'll have to copy the link and backspace once right before the # in the link. Topix keeps putting a space there for some reason.

If I was interested in opening an adult business I would look at Paducah. The city administration in Metropolis takes it's orders from the local Clergy which is against anything adult oriented.
