After 31 years, restaurant Howard Nielsen still makes his weekly trip to the market. Nielsen says he does this to keep costs down and for the camaraderie he gets from working with other businesses. There’s no substitute for hard work!
Due to heavy rains at the Lilac Fest today, Willie Nile will now be playing at Sticky Lips Joint (830 Jefferson Road) at 9:30pm. Come early to hear the Old Hippies open at 8:30! No cover!
A Buffalo, NY native, Willie Nile’s fans include Bruce Springsteen, with whom he’s guested onstage on multiple occasions, and Pete Townshend, who personally requested him as the opening act on the Who’s 1982 U.S. tour. Other avowed Nile admirers include Bono, Lou Reed, Paul Simon, Ian Hunter, Steven and Lucinda Williams, who once remarked, “Willie Nile is a great artist. If there was any justice in this world, I’d be opening up for him instead of him for me.”
Sticky Lips BBQ is celebrating its 10th year serving hungry Rochesterians with the roll-out of three new menu items at both restaurant locations. Barbecue aficionados can enjoy the new “Tenth Year Anniversary Sandwiches”: the Buttered Brisket Sandwich and the tropical island flavour of the Howie Maui Wowie Sandwich. Also new is the “Mr. Wallace’s Fried Chicken” recipe.

This year Sticky Lips also marked the opening of a new state-of-the-art catering/fundraiser kitchen, the first phase of improvements to the Culver Road location. Also ready to break ground will be the new “Sticky Lips City Music Hall,” which will include a full bar and live music.
The Sticky Lips story began on April 22, 2004, when the marquee read “I just spent my life savings, please eat my food.” After eleven months of renovation, the building at the corner of Culver and Atlantic was transformed. What was once an automobile showroom (and later Carvel’s Ice Cream) was now the two story STICKY LIPS PIT BBQ. Remembers owner Howard Nielsen, “People must have felt sorry for me. We had a line out the door and it hasn’t stopped since.”
Nielsen now owns the plaza at the corner at Atlantic and Culver, and plans are underway to create “A.C. Junction,” a dining and entertainment destination.
A few months ago, the Gas House Gorillas shot their music video for “Find a Little Boogie” at the Sticky Lips BBQ Juke Joint. We defy you watch this without tapping your feet!
