It’s 3 days left before 2016 ends. It was good for some and bad for the others. We most recently had Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) pass away, before that George Micheal, David Bowie among many other very iconic people leaving life on Earth – we hope wherever they go, they’ll be happy.
Here at Big John’s Place, we’re very grateful for all the support and love you, as our guests and staff, have shown us. Here are some pictures that reflected the whole of 2016. We hope you’ll enjoy the pictures!

Love from John and everyone at Big Jon’s Place. P/s: yes, it’s heavily photoshopped. John doesn’t look like this is real life and his hands are not floating hands
