My World bar in Green Bay was opened by Bob Hackl and Scott. It advertised itself as "Leather Levi Country/ Country Rock Music" bar. It enjoyed great success, and celebrated its 5th anniversary in April-May 1984.

For a time, My World also was home to another bar, the Silver Saddle. It advertised in 1982-1983 as a lesbian bar, entered via the rear entrance of My World.

The bar changed ownership in February 1985. It was shown in the same issue of In Step as being owned by "Jerry and Dwight" and advertised as being owned by "Dwayne and Jerry". Shortly after, the bar was renamed "Brandy's".

More information about this business is welcomed from anyone who can contribute it.
