sure we'll all stop by! good luck jimmy/bruce. i hope i can be your first patron. all of us from "Scooties" wish you well. we think your right the lyons is a nice community. with any luck doug and i will be able to transform the screwy louis bar into a retro disco palace complete with a big crystal ball that would make Dick Clark wet his nickers!. it will definetly not be a sports bar. we will probably be able to bring alot from our area to the lyons. remember when we first came to royal oak. with the 6 property investments that we are going to invest in on lafayette, we can make this town boogie! big hi hugs to all!

what the hell is a hi hug


#4 Jan 18, 2009
a hi hug is when you want to express love and touch but cant because you are talking to someone on a computer. icons dont do it, so when you say hi hugs, the person on the other end can magicly feel the warmth from you even if your a thousand miles away. our friend the very fashionable shaunclaire is the first person to feel a hi hug. he was talking to a client of his that was considering coming out.

ok guys it seems as if you are going to try to transform south lyon into a gay community. hi hugs? a retro disco club in the middle of the town? spices, latais, teas, german chocalates, pastry and some guy named shaunclaire?. what kind of place is scooties! we are not anti gay but you need to research the area more. there is not enough people to support this kind of club stuff here in south lyon.besides that it is expensive out here.


#6 Jan 22, 2009
we have the money! and as for support we have all we need. it comes from the greater metro mens league of michigan, ohio, indiana. our numbers are staggering. we have chosen the lyons as our next stop, so get on board or miss the train! and to all, big hi hugs and a choo ! choo! here come da judge!

as the sighn says on the side of the building of the former screwie lewies. change is coming! we have decided to call this new adventure "STRAPS" we will feature retro disco and ball dancing. if you like dancing with the stars then you will love to scoot your boogie to our viberstimes. big hi hugs to all!!!!!

shaunclaire dude! is this bar going to be catered to a certain type of clientel, like, well you know! i would like to disco again like i did in the would be a fun place, and nothing is like that close at all. my friend told me that the retro disco dance places are popping up in colorado, and florida. he also said that its because people just want to dance to have fun again and forget the economy for a night. why did you choose "straps" for a name

"STRAPS" several reasons why. first the saying "pull up your boot straps" straps is a strong word that has a real kick to it. "lets kick it up and boogie". this is going to be a real retro blast. it will out do any place thats within 200 miles. we have done our work on this. and it will be a direct impact to the entertainment idea that lyons realy needs. we are looking into the parking issues at this point and guess what. as we did in frisco entertainment shuttle busses. these busses are a prep show to and a safe ride from. they will come from novi and several other lager populated areas simply park at a mall outside of town. issue solved

the gays are a good deterrent for keeping your city from becoming ghetto.

So, what happened? Why did STRAPS fall through, and it's now Crossroads Grille?

So Bruce and Jimmy, are you guys still around? it would be nice to see another gay business in South Lyon.
To all of you who think South Lyon is totally straight, you are mistaken. There are a lot of us gay people here. Just look for the homes that are kept up nice, and clean.
