A requirement of the Texas trip is to go to the largest honky tonk, Billy Bobs. Billy Bobs Texas is the Disneyland of all that is Western-as their website sums it up:
With 127,000 square feet of space, which is nearly 3 acres inside and 20 acres of parking, for entertainment and events, Billy Bob's has 32 Max individual bar stations, country music's biggest stars, Live Pro Bull Riding and a Texas size dance floor for everyone to enjoy.
Once again, it's big. Their gift shop sells all sorts of stuff from hats to cross bedecked teeshirts and bags, to anything with a cowboy boot on it. They have pool, gambling, dancing, bars,live bull riding, stuffed bull riding (for a picture)--"the photo bull" and much more...down to a music hall of fame and some terrific bios with pics of their favorite barrel riders or rodeo stars...(getting me much more excited about tomorrow night). The big fashion look beyond the boys in their hats and boots were these spangly belts (western style ) that the chickaritas cinched around the requisite jeans and low cut tops. Wow! I hope they don't pack that stuff when they come to Manhattan---It might not work so well out of context.
The Lone Star beers were cheap and it seems that one or two of them were being consumed. I cannot even begin to imagine the scene that goes on on the weekends there. A buck to get in. A beer for $1.75 and all the music you can consume...with gals in tight stuff with spangles and lots of lip gloss and plenty of handsome tall drinks of water--twirling and two stepping into the wee hours. Wowza.
It's late. Good night!
