USE THIS ONE!!! Why bother with downtown when you have Burnet Road? Start with a beer, pickled egg, sausage, and crackers at Ginny's Little Longhorn Saloon. Country troubadour Dale Watson plays there on Thursdays when he's in town. From there, crawl on up to the Poodle Dog Lounge to shoot some pool or feed the old-time jukebox at LaLa's Little Nugget. Karaoke fans can ply their vice at the Common Interest every night, but you haven't lived until you've done karaoke at Buddy's Place on Friday nights alongside emcee supreme Cal Koker. Best of all, none of these places charges a cover.
