Lol! Water temp might not agree with that! But I'd go for it if water temp was 60+

Not sure what piano bar you're referring to. There's a couple that are actual bars, but not restaurants. One is Ernie Biggs in Westport, and the other is Howl at the Moon in the downtown bar district. Both are fun, but if you're going out I'd choose Westport over downtown. Westport and The Plaza are where you should be if you want to have fun at the bar scene. I'm not sure what I'm up to this weekend yet, but there's generally a high probability that I make it to one of those two areas.

It might not have been a piano bar, just had a piano in the bar area of the restaurant. Was a lot of people having a good time! I'll have to check out those other 2 places you mentioned. I might try one of those Friday night as I figure Fridays are busier than Thursday

You'd be surprised... Thursdays will still be fun either way.

In westport check out:
Kelly's - chill irish bar
Dark Horse - also laid back
Firefly - also laid back
The Foundry - Bar/Restaraunt
The Union - crunchy beatz bar

Plaza you should go:
Gran Faloon - "college crowd" style bar
O'douds - Good irish bar
The Point ($10 all you can drink friday from like 7-10PM) this is like a block north of the plaza though.



Those would be my suggestions. I'm 29, and I thought I saw you mention you were younger in another thread. You won't run into a bunch of dads at all these places (sorry for the dads on here ;))

Depends...

If you plan to be on the lake here in feb, it will be bitter... any other time it's 90 degrees...

if you dont like the weather here in texas, stick around a few hours, it will change.

i'm training a few club members on driving for our site tonight... water will be skiable till around 7 PM, then shift from SW to W to NW...

Piano bar was Sneaky Petes..... Closed - Find Barley's Brewhouse if you like micro-pubs and great chow. - they have a whole wall of tasty brews on tap. Salty Iguana is great too. Nick and Jakes...

Not too bad, usual bar burger, grill stuff - It gets alot better after about 4 beers though. There is usually some eye candy at the Falloon.

Depends what you like really. Kelly's is fun if you're just looking to party. Cheap beer in high quantities. You have anyone else with you or you just rollin' alone?

Just me, don't want to party to hard and not make it back to the hotel but still want to have a good time

I forgot about Ernie Biggs too... that might be a fun place to go. They have a bar you could park up to, and everyones having fun since its a dueling piano bar. That's also in westport. The nice thing is everything is all packed into 1 block, so if you're not having fun just head somewhere new and you're there in 5 minutes or less.

clrussell

Ernie Biggs sounds pretty cool! I like the idea of being able to move on if I don't like a place. There are only 3 bars here and they are all 10 miles apart

If there is, I'm way out of it at this point. You'll find more people come out when it's warm out. You might check out www.kcsr.org though, that's the old website for people in that scene.

Thanks, like I said that'll depend on if I drive my truck up or not.. Thought if there was something like that it'd be cool to go check out everyone's rides. I'll prolly just stick to the bar choices. less likely to get in trouble at the bar I'd say
