Conditional Sub Header in a sidemenu project

I’m trying to add something like this:

    <ion-subheader-bar class="bar-positive">
        <h3 class="title" style="color: black;">Header (stable)</h3>

To the standard sidemenu project, and I’m having some difficulty figuring out where it goes. This is the menu.html I’m using:

    <ion-nav-bar class="bar-dark xmd-nav">
        <ion-nav-buttons side="left">
            <button class="button button-icon button-clear ion-navicon" menu-toggle="left">

        <ion-nav-buttons side="right">
            <span style="padding-top: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" ng-click="goHome();">
                <img height="20" style="vertical-align: middle;" src="images/app_icon_home.png"/>
            <!-- <button class="button button-icon button-clear ion-navicon" ng-click=""> -->

    <ion-nav-view name="menuContent"></ion-nav-view>


<ion-side-menu side="left">
    <ion-header-bar class="bar-dark xmd-nav">
        <h1 class="title"></h1>
            <ion-item nav-clear menu-close href="" ng-click='goHome()'>
            <ion-item nav-clear menu-close href="" ng-click="back()" ng-show="hasBack()">
            <ion-item nav-clear menu-close href="" ng-click='myInfo()' ng-show="hasInfo()">
            My Info
            <ion-item nav-clear menu-close href="#/app/login">

If I just slap it before or after

    <ion-nav-view name="menuContent"></ion-nav-view>

it slides under the main menu.

I want to use something like this as a conditional notification across the site. Not sure if this is the best bet, but it certainly seemed like it’d be the easiest. I’m just unclear on where it should go. All the references I see talk about it relating to a ion-header-bar tag, but I don’t see those in this default layout.

Anyhow, any thoughts appreciated.
