What’s the best day to come with that being said?
Saturday night for sure, for the shows, and as I said, our Thursdays are good here, too. It gets pretty crowded, and it’s a good time.
What’s the most popular drink here?
Well, we make something called a Three Legged Monkey; it's super chilled Crown Royal with Coke and Sprite. It’s a favorite here.
So, like a shot?
How about beer, what’s your most popular beer here?
To be honest, it’s Shiner. I mean we still serve a lot of Miller Lite and things like that, but Shiner is the favorite.
How often do you see famous artists?
Oh, all the time. Friday and Saturday night for sure. Pat Green was just in here most recently but we see a lot of football players, too. I don’t watch much football but you know, all the famous ones.
How about Willie Nelson, does he still come up here?
Oh sure, Willie Nelson was just here a bit ago as well.
Really? Willie? I’m surprised he’s still moving around?
Ha ha, yeah.
Before I asked my next question Skyy took care of a few actual cowboys who were waiting for me to finish. When she wrapped up with them I ordered an ice cold Shiner, and she slid it across the bar. I passed on doing the Three Legged Monkey; I figured I’d play it safe. I sat at the bar a bit afterwards and watched a group of guys play pool, took a few more swigs from my Shiner and for that moment I felt like an actual Texan. While I'm sure city folk were sipping their wine and wearing fancy clothes, it felt genuine and comfortable to just sit there in a honky tonk and be undisturbed with my Shiner.
