Mamacita's: Nice Sports Bar in Clint (El Paso)
After dinner I had a rum and coke, and watched more of the baseball game on the big screen TVs. The rum and coke was strong enough and the waitress cute; but not the model for the sign. The music was in Spanish for the most part.

The Flying Saucer: Great beer selection at The Flying Saucer!
The Flying saucer is located in the heart of Sundance Square. It’s an old two story building with the main bar on the first floor. The interior is like an English pub with a twist of Texas. The walls are covered with personalized plates to honor those who have tasted at least 200 different kind of beers. Some persons have two or even three plates. What more can I say than well done! If you want a plate as well, you have to become a member of the UFO Club (±$14).
There is also dinnerware on the ceiling that looks like ‘Delfts Blauw’, which is typically Dutch.
This bar has over 70 beers on tap and many varieties in bottles. They have lagers, ambers, browns, pales, domestic, or imported; they even got ‘beer soup’ (sorry, didn’t try it). In the summer you can sit on the roof patio and if you’re lucky you can enjoy the live music of the ‘8.0 bar’ across the street. Especially on Wednesdays when the band that plays at ‘8.0 bar’ is performing outside. The Flying Saucer has live-entertainment on Thursday and Sunday night.
For those who like to smoke cigars, this bar is cigarette and cigar friendly! If you didn’t bring your own cigars; no worry….not only do they have a large beer list, but also a huge cigar list! What more do you need; beer cigars, great atmosphere and for the men Britney look a likes in school uniforms (the waitresses)…..many say this is heaven!
You still don’t know were to go with your friends?? Well, hurry up and go to the Flying Saucer. It’s a great place to go hang out!

the back porch: port aransas
This open air watering hole made us feel like we were FINALLY on an island. Mingling with the tourists , locals & fishermen we lazed away an entire afternoon. Later we returned for the live music scene.......Augie Meyers no less! aka Texas Tornadoes & Sir Douglas Quintet. The place was on fire with activity .......dancers, families, singles......We had a big time. Apparently the live music scene on this quirky little island is one of Texas best kept secrets. My wife counted 8 locations with music. Locals were friendly,....tourists were , plentiful. We're told Spring Winter & Fall are best times to avoid crowds. We'll definetly go back. The back Porch seems to be the epicenter

J&J Blues Bar
J&J Blues Bar is tucked away in a little corner of Ft Worth. A well known spot for Blues and R&B fans. Looking more like a large tin shack, inside you will find a cosy atmosphere with table and chairs (with room to move) and a bar. Flashy old neon signs and gaudy advertising add some colour and for conversation, an assortment of bra’s dangle from anything they can find to be draped over. Just the coolest little place. J&J’s hosts numerous well known local and national blues bands including some great legends. (937 Woodward Street, Ft Worth).
