A Time to Drink a Shiner Black

In Honky Tonk on 11/28/2010 at 1:26 pm

Club 21 in Uhland, Texas (mentioned here on December 8, 2009) has BURNED DOWN.  It’s a sad, sad day for Texas honky tonks.

To understand the gravity of the situation, Club 21 is now closed for the first time in 117 years. On October 24th, an auto accident caused it to catch fire and burn down.  As you can see below, nothing is left.

Rebuilding is being mentioned already.  Here is the official website for more info: Club 21 Dancehall.

Thank you to Almost Out of Gas for the news.

I’m back!  Sorry for the delay ladies and gents.  Been busy and lame all at the same time.  Let’s get back to it, shall we?

Hondo, Texas.

Post corn maze.

Exercised and looking for some of these:

We took the backroads to The Backroads, a quaint little beer joint to be found on the road to Tarpley.

Complete with a dog on the front porch,

a very nice bartender who took our picture,

and a place to leave our mark.

The building itself is in shotgun style, bar immediately to the right and several large televisions for sports viewing pleasure.

I didn’t get any picture of the outside but it was impressive.  A nice pot belly stove, fancy horseshoe pits and conveniently rounded tables make this place an overall good hangout spot.  Being there during the day was relaxing, open to do your own thing or chat with strangers.  If you find yourself in that neck of the woods, be sure to stop by and write something on the big white wall towards the back, on the right side.

FYI: the smaller wall to the left is for Veterans Only.

Thanks for the pics A.R.!


It’s a fact! Fact:  My bologna has a first name.  It’s O-S-C-A-R.
