My father, Florian (Smoky) Schultz built the original Smoky's Bar and Lounge. He expanded when I was about 10 to include a larger dance area and a kitchen. My mother, Barbara Schultz, was a musician and played with numerous North Dakota bands at this location. Smoky's (when my dad owned it) was known for great music and dances and their delicious post-dance smorgasbord and Friday night fish fry. When my dad decided to retire and sold the structure, it was renamed Smokey's (with an e). My dad, who is 94, is still a fantastic cook and lives in Grand Forks.
