11th Street Cowboy Bar

Although the dances and dance lessons at the Dance Rally are terrific, my favorite place in Bandera is the 11th Street Cowboy Bar.


Every Wednesday night, they have a "Burn Your Own," along with live music, and no cover charge.

The first week we were there, the Lone Star Pickerz were on stage. They're a great band, and played at our Dance Rally the following week.

They invited the women of our group up on stage to perform as the "Irritations." Since I'm not a good "wiggler," I chose to be the photographer.


This bar is unusual in several ways. Inside the bar are lots of bras hanging from the ceiling. The story is that if you leave your bra here, they'll give you a t-shirt.


And outside the door here, as well as all over town, are places for you to tie up your horse.


The second week another band, the Rusty Nails, played.

Although most of the music was country, here I'm dancing to an Elvis tune.


Two fun filled evenings spent with friends. How much better can life get?
