Hey folks, get ready for the time of your life at Tobacco Road.

It seems like bars and music have always gone hand in hand. And nowhere more so than at a honky-tonk. A piece of traditional Americana, the honky-tonk has been part of Southern culture for generations. Well there are honky-tonk bars, and then there’s Billy Bob’s Texas. We all know everything’s bigger in Texas, and Billy Bob’s is no exception. With a total enclosed area close to 3 acres, space for over 6,000 patrons, a 1,650 square foot stage for performances, a 4,800 square foot rodeo arena, plus a restaurant and shopping, Billy Bob’s is the largest honky-tonk bar in the world. And as manager Marty Travis says, “It’s not just a place, it’s an attitude”. Here is the place that country music lovers from all walks of life come together to drink up and party down. Read more

Meers Store and Restaurant :: Lawton, Oklahoma

Sitting about 100 miles south west of Oklahoma City is the tiny hamlet of Meers, Oklahoma; a once a bustling town filled with earthy miners and lots of Wichita Gold. Over the years the gold ran out and most of the locals moved on, but a few hearty folks have stayed behind to run the only building still remaining of the old town: Meers Store and Restaurant. It’s hard to say exactly when or where Meers Store and Restaurant appeared on the scene because the building actually jumped around town and owners a few times having served in such positions as a gas station, post office, pharmacy, print shop, and grocery store. We do know that in 1949 the store was purchased by the Myers family who brought the first fresh cooked food, particularly hamburgers, to eager travelers. Read more

Gadsby’s Tavern :: Alexandria, Virginia

Alexandria, Virginia is home to some of the key pieces of the dawn of the United States. Children study in history classes how the Founding Fathers met in taverns and pubs to draft the nation’s earliest laws and shape this nascent country. Did you know, however, that you can sit and dine where some of the greatest of these men ate, drank, and contemplated America’s future? Gadsby’s Tavern in Old Town Alexandria showed up on the “it scene” in the late 1700s serving the likes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Andrew Jackson and James Madison. A major center for social and political life in the 18th and 19th centuries you can almost picture Lieutenant Colonel Washington (he was still over 30 years from the presidency) recruiting like minded young men for the French and Indian War.
