most definately! years ago we would park at Billy Bob's and go there then walk down to the other clubs that were within walking distance, and there were a few!

on a sidenote: the White Elephant Saloon is one the oldest saloons in Ft. Worth and they filmed some of the scenes for Walker Texas Ranger there. it was used for the set of CD's Bar and Grill in the show.

There was a dive I went to where bikers stared at cowboys, who were laughing at these hippies, who were praying they would get out of there alive... Sorry I just couldn't resist that one.

In all seriousness I haven't been to any odd bars. I have heard of these underwater bars though. Has anyone seen/been to one of these?

Gruene hall is one of my favorite places to visit when i go to New Braunfels.
Been to Gilleys, and I think to Gruene Hall as well. Is that in or around New Braunfels?

I've been to the Hogs Breath in Carmel CA back when Clint Eastwood owned it. Funny story, a bunch of my friends and I just left there one night after tying one on and as we were staggering down the street a tourist asked us if we knew where the "Hogs Head" was. My buddy (who was perfectly drunk) slurs out "Shoor do. Itsh about thish far from his ash-hole." holding his hands about three feet apart, and we staggered on laughing. They were about 20 feet from the door.

As to other bars I have been in, the Mosquito Lounge in Mecca Ohio. real dive bar at the time. Guys shooting heroin in the back booths, regular fights, that sort of thing. One night we were the only ones there (I think it was a Sunday night, but I could be wrong about that- were Ohio bars open on Sunday nights back in the 80's?) and the bartender was drunk when we walked in. He was too far gone to make any drinks so we just hopped the bar and started making our own. Turns out the bartender was headed to jail the next morning so he was getting good and drunk to celebrate. We were there for a few hours until about 2:30 or 3:00 AM, the barkeep had passed out so we roused him up and said we were leaving, taking a case of beer for the road and he asked is we paid our bill. We honestly had no idea how much we had been drinking so we just said it was $30 and left $40 on the bar.

Been to quite a few I don't remember the names of. There is one in Orlando I never went into, it was a strip club called the Booby Trap. The building was was two pink domes with brown cupolas on top.

VikingDad, Gruene Hall is located in Gruene Texas, which use to be a small farming community outside of New Braunfels. now it's only a few miles from New Braunfels. Gruene is now a kind of historic district and has a few really nice restaraunts and shops there. the wife and i really enjoy visiting there and the last time ate at the Gristmill. it overlooks the Guadalupe river. worth the visit if you are ever there in New Braunfels.

Oh, OK. I was in San Antonio back then for the street race (I worked for a racing team) and we drove out to New Braunfels, if Gruene is nearby then it could very well be that we stopped in there. It looks familiar anyhow. Of course this was back in the late 80's.

Do they do a river rafting thing on the Guadalupe? I recall that as well. Beer was involved so I could be wrong.

Oh, I just remembered a bar in Phoenix, or Chandler actually- the Rustler's Roost. Great bar. There is another one in Mesa that I forget the name of, but it was a country western place with bands and all, the cool part was that it had the funniest graffiti all over the place- there was not one square inch of that place, inside and out, that wasn't written on. Some of the funniest graffiti I have seen too.
