last weekend

This past weekend was my husband's family reunion. We shipped ourselves to Texas and had ourselves a real good time. We hung out and caught up with family all weekend long, eating Tex-Mex and barbeque and drinking cold beer. Exactly what one should be doing in Texas. 



Our last night there, the whole family went out to Lures, a dive bar with a sense of humor. It's catch and release only and if you are female, make sure to use the "Bait" restroom - "Rods" is for the guys. With no A/C, it was a pretty warm and sticky night, but we had a blast.


We were lucky enough to have live entertainment - the Kevin Black band played for us and it was fantastic. Two of his sons play with him along with Floyd - the only non-relation - but a funny guy. I see why they keep him around.

The night reminded me how much I love small, live shows. In Vegas - the land of over the top entertainment- there must still be some small, local music scene, right? Making a mental note to check that out.

  1. Looks like fun! I lived in Texas about 20 years ago and haven't even thought of an icehouse since then. I need to go back, I think my husband would really like it!
