Tink ,you and CC , can hitch a ride with the me and the old man(Wild Turkey), for some southern bar hoping. Now I will tell ya honky tonks aint like they used to be darlin', the rednecks have taken over.
But if CC is prepared to defend your feminine honor than you might make it thru the first hour. LOL
We went to this one place called "the Log Cabin" , way back in the woods, it played lots of good ol country, with a slash of some funky stuff, (the gap band, kc sunshine, mj blidge, play that funky music white boy, etc. ) also so good old southern rock(Skynard, Segar, SRV, Allman brother band, ZZtop, .38 special, etc). They would also throw in some John Cougar, the Boss, Garth, what ever was good to dance too. Conway , Merle, Vern, George, George S. Mark ,Clint, etc. for the the belt buckle rubbing kind of dancing.
They had 2 pool tables, it was a small little hole in the wall, and a few tables and chairs. The owner used to travel with ol George Jones and many others back in the 70's as a manager and song writer. He had a pretty good Karoeke(sp) set up too, and encourage anyone to sing. This is something I had always wanted to do, so I did......I sang Desperodo, by the Eagles ( of course) andit was so cool. I dont even remember hearing myself. I just did it !!!! This was the place where I first went out and dance publicly since we left the borg, and it was awesome. I would dance till I had blister on my feet. Wild Turkey just sat there mostly drinking and shooting pool.
But turns out the place was a little rowdy,,,,,,,,,,,,,, we soon found out instead of locals calling it the Log Cabin,. they and the local police called it the "Stabbin Cabin". There were too many good ol boys there that wanted to get drunk , ( I mean pissin in the corner of the place thinking it was the bathroom) drunk. Usually some ol girl would have a fight with a former boyfriend andthen all hell would break lose. The cops came and took some away and it happened again. We decided this was not our kind of place , because if you knew my hubby, he would be in a fight with one of those arrogant fools in a split second. So that ended our days at the honky tonk.
We have since moved our partying out of the woods, and into the big city of Shreveport, about 40 miles away, and we fit in alot better there.
Our favoirtie is called Rockin Rodeo, it is big.. two stories,, downstairs, they play country and some dance mix ,, ifyou look down form upstairs you see lots of cowboy hats. Upstairs is where we stay most of the time, it is fast dancing, with all kinds of music, rap, rock, hip hop, top a40, southern rock , just whatever you can dance to. The drink specials are awesome and they have bouncers so there is no fighting allowed, or you can never come back.
Well, Tink,I just felt I would tell ya how it is around here in Louisiana and hope you can make it down maybe in December, my hubby is giving me a birthday party and he might do it at our fav club. If you get there early it is not so loud. So think about it,,, we will let you know what we are going to do for sure.
Sorry this was so long, but you sounded like you were ready to go out dancin, and this is the best I could do to help ya,,,,,, just talk about it. I guess I get a little carried away, and I know I am very descriptive, but I want ya to see it really good in your mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
