A continuing business … J&T's Bar & Grill in Midland

J&T Bar and Grill (formerly Tin Buck 2) ... is up and going strong in Midland. The owners/operators are Tammy Williams and Jay Calhoon.

Though they took over the business on September 1, they wanted it going by Midland’s Free Day on September 12. They made it!

J&T’s Bar and Grill has replaced the former Tin Buck 2 in downtown Midland.

“Business has doubled since when I was working there before the sale and now,” said Tammy Williams, the “T” part of J&T. She had worked there for the eight months before the previous owner decided to close, after running it for just a year.

Porch summarized the consideration of sparsity – comparing the average daily membership (number of students) with the square mile area covered by the school district.
