Places listed and described in TexasMoreTexas journalist Shirley Jinkins has put to good use her more than two decades covering the states music scene by identifying the region s most historic dance halls, beloved honky tonks and iconic saloons. Places listed and described in Texas Landmark Saloons, Honky Tonks and Dance Halls are the sort of places that keep Texas culturally distinctive while the rest of the country gets homogenized by chain concepts and mass marketing. Gruene Hall, Luckenbach Dance Hall, Willie s Place, Billy Bob s and many more are profiled in this nifty pocket-sized, valued-priced guide that should be kept ready in every glove compartment of a vehicle headed through the great expanses of Texas. Passing through Mason? Don t miss the London Dance Hall nearby. Heading to Big Bend? Don t pass up the Starlight Theatre in Terlingua. Approaching Abilene around Christmas? You cant miss the century-plus Cowboy Christmas Ball at Ansons Pioneer Hall nearby.
