Hey, Spike! reveals stars visit Jonny G’s
In some hot local social news coverage, Denver Post social columnist Bill Husted reports that Matthew Perry, formerly of TV’s “Friends,” was in Frisco for the holidays.
Matthew was spotted partying at Upstairs at Jonny G’s on Main Street. He was staying with friends at “$#*! My Dad Says” star Nicole Sullivan’s house.
Nicole and husband Jason Packham, also an actor, have a home here. They are residents of California.
And media sources say they are both sporting new weight losses via Jenny Craig: Nicole dropped 35 pounds; Jason 25.
They are friends of new Town of Frisco event manager Jaime Harmon.
Jonny Greco, now 35 years old, opened in his popular well-into-the-evening nightspot in 2001 in what is new owner Michael Hilbert’s vastly improving Frisco Mall.
“I can actually confirm he was in Jonny G’s,” says the likeable Jonny of Matthew’s visit. “I poured the guy a drink and didn’t even know it was him – we were so busy,” he adds.
Matthew Perry fans will soon find him in ABC’s “Mr. Sunshine.”
Jonny relates that Nicole and Jason always stop by when in town, explaining the famous couple likes Frisco because the “local people respect them” and “don’t make a big deal” of their presence.
He also noted that Jonny G’s has undergone a remodel and now is a pizzeria in addition to a bar and nightclub. He calls the next level “Jonny G’s 2.0.”
Oldtimers will recall the place used to be GeJo’s Pizza, owned by Sandy Schmaderer and Barry Hansen.
With sadness we report the passing of Kathy Lohmann of Marietta, Ga., ending her long battle with ovarian cancer.
Kathy’s husband, Dr. Jack Lohmann, is vice provost for faculty and academic development and professor of industrial and systems engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Daughter Ashley graduated from Stanford last summer.
Jack’s brothers are Jon, with wife Ann, of Houston, and Jed, also wife Ann, of Dallas.
The Lohmann Family has owned property in Frisco since 1950.
Spotted out and about recently: Bob Wenom, a retired gas refiner who lives in Dillon’s Whispering Pines Ranch; Gene and Therese Dayton, Frisco and Breckenridge Nordic Center operators; remodeling snowremover Greg Kane and “cute as a button” Lacey Rae Ely; Mark and Mary Waldman of the Hotel Frisco; Silverthorners Winnie and Dick Jaquemard; ex-Climax miner Kenny Johnston from down on the Lower Blue; Lawyer Kent Willis riding the Summit Stage back from Copper; longtime local Art Burger; RE/MAX-ers Kim Hebron and Don Buckalew; and Funsical’s Scott Liebler.
Emily Allison Palm Mulica, a freelance writer and photographer, isn’t waiting for any I-70 Zipper Lanes or a monorail.
A current resident of just-down-the-hill Golden, Emily and hubby Matthew “will be moving up to Summit County in four-five months – can’t wait” after it took them four hours to get back home.
