Looking for a fun way to fill your Tuesday nights during the long, cold winter months?

Every Tuesday from October through March, BJ’s Barbecue Shack in Detroit Lakes is hosting a full evening of Texas Hold ’Em Poker — and the price to participate can fit into even the tightest budget, because there is none.


That’s right, the weekly games at BJ’s Barbecue are all free — but that doesn’t mean the stakes aren’t high.
