Mr. Mikes fires back in Bonnyville sign war

The Bonnyville sign war between two 50 Ave businesses is starting to get personal today.

After a new sign was posted yesterday by Sonny’s Liquor telling Mr. Mikes Steakhouse Causal that they would not be getting any deals this May 24 weekend, Mr. Mikes was quick to return fire.

This morning the Mr. Mikes Steakhouse Causal sign reads, “It’s ok Sonny’s we don’t shop there anyways.”

An apparent low blow in the pun-filled sign war. Although it is unclear who will be crowned the winner in this feud, the changing of the messages on the signs seems to happen daily now and is attracting a lot of attention.

Will this turn into a triple threat match is the question. Will it spread to the entire Lakeland? So many question remain unanswered.

For now, the two businesses have been creating fun messages for their business’ sign and some say it is a perfect distraction from what’s going on in the world around us. Plus it makes people smile.

Lakeland Connect will bring you more signs as they appear in the Lakeland.
