Jack’s Place is now Your Place.

Don Erich has taken over the bar at 3165 River Road N., just south of the Keizer city limits.

“We want it to be a fun, safe, entertaining place for locals to go,” he said.

Larry Gallagher is returning to the kitchen, bringing back daily specials along with the old menu, including “Your Big Burger,” a two-thirds pound monster with fresh beef.

Fresh, made-in-house fries and buffalo chips are back on the menu, and Gallagher plans to offer daily specials. Salad, steak and more are also available.

Wednesday nights remains the Blues and Jazz Night, and a grand opening Feb. 12 will feature High Point. Upcoming acts include Sagebrush of Bend and Rock Solid of Eugene.

There’s karaoke every Friday evening, and poker tournaments on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Free wireless Internet is available.

The bar also has lottery machines.

Erich has managed a bar before, but most recently worked in financial sales.
