Area residents soon will get to see a local restaurant owner’s appearance on the national TV show Judge Judy.
Doug Holiday, owner of Bigg’s BBQ, said he’s been notified that his appearance on the show will be broadcast on Thursday.
Holiday last summer brought a small claims court case against a 20-year old after Bigg’s got fined $500 for serving the minor a beer. The minor used a fake ID to buy the beer.
Holiday brought the case after learning that the minor ended up striking a plea deal with the city prosecutor’s office, and ended up paying less than Holiday’s business did for the offense. The case ended up drawing the attention of the producers of Judge Judy.
Holiday is hosting a special watch party at 4 p.m. Thursday at Bigg’s, 2429 Iowa. The event will include a special fake ID amnesty program. Holiday will give anyone turning in their fake ID a $10 gift certificate. Holiday then will destroy the fake IDs, not turn them into the police — or Judge Judy.
The event also will feature a Judge Judy look-alike contest.
The show airs at 4 p.m. on WDAF TV, which is channel 4 on Sunflower Broadband. The show also airs at 11 a.m. on KTKA TV, which is channel 12 on Sunflower.
