Posted by on April 24, 2013

Welcome to Billy Bob’s.

I’m talking, of course, about Billy Bob’s.

Perhaps the coolest single part of the Ft Worth Stockyards.

Like the Fort Worth Stockyards where the bar is located, it really was a cool experience. I’d heard about this place from friends, actually, but that didn’t nearly prepare me for how much I was going to enjoy it.

Easily the highlight of the night, though, was the rodeo action. It was a bit short, and I didn’t get nearly enough pictures.

To cap off the night, the SMU dance team ‘kicked up their heels’ on the dance floor.

Billy Bob’s was definitely a worthwhile experience, and I urge everybody who ever finds themself in Dallas or Fort Worth to check the place out.


Y’all come back now, ya’ hear?
