One night at the dance hall...

My first night "going out" in Austin was last night. Tiffany & I went to the the Broken Spoke, last of the true Texas dance halls, to see Brian's band, The Derailers, play. The place was crowded and the dance floor was full.

The proprietor, James White, is a friendly man with a lot of wonderful memories to share... and a killer fashion sense!

There's memorabilia and photographs everywhere. Including treasures such as these:

(painting done by James White, himself.)

Of course, the band entertained the entire time (James White even joined in):


At the end of the night, Tiffany and I went for a night cap to a place called Giddy-Ups.  Quite a fine little local dive. All in all it was a great night and I can't wait for more!
