Michigan Idol Castaways Winner Joe Gibson & Judges
Rolling Michigan Idol Show To Stop at VNO's
August 2, 2014
By: Josh Sharrow
Michigan Idol was born at The Stables in Bay City, Michigan. Since then the show has had successful stops at The Willew Lounge & Castaways. Michigan Idol host said it's time to move the show to a new location, and VNO's New Age Restaurant, on Midland Street, is the place!
Contestants will have the opportunity to win a Grand prize of $500 cash. Greg Kimbrue, owner of VNO's, says he is excited for the competition. "I've watched this contest for a while now, and we're excited to have it here at VNO's!" Michigan Idol Host Josh Sharrow said he thinks the location is perfect. "VNO's is a great place with great energy. The location is good, and it's nice to breathe some new life to the street."
The Vno facility features a large wine and beer retail area with over 500 types of wine from all around the world . . . and of course, from the state of Michigan.
"You really have to see our pricing on wine," Kimbrue explained. Kimbrue says his wine pricing meets and mostly beats all of the big chain stores and that special orders are gladly accepted.
"I think we have the Tri-cities most unique dining, drinking and shopping experience," Kimbrue explained . . . with over 5,600 square feet of space spread out in an open urban, yet historic style and decorum.
