Re the previous entry...I don't just listen to classical music, and I don't just go to the symphony for entertainment. I like a lot of different kinds of music, including some rap, and I like a lot of variety as to where I go.

Yesterday afternoon I went to one of my favorite places in Dallas: Adair's Saloon in Deep Ellum. That's a picture of the alley door (the entry I prefer to use) above. (Note: I didn't take this pic; I got it from the website). Adair's is a dive bar with one of the best cheeseburgers anywhere. There's live music (country) at night and during the day the jukebox plays mostly Willie and Delbert and Merle and Hank, with a few variations. If you're wondering what the last names of those guys are, Adair's is probably not your kind of place. The booths and walls are covered in graffiti; when a friend took his 20-something future stepson there for a burger and a beer, the kid was afraid to sit down for fear he'd get marker on his khakis; we all had a good laugh, at the kid's expense, over that concern.

The only things on the menu at Adairs (there are no actual menus) are hamburgers, cheeseburgers, fries, and grilled cheese sandwiches; you can get a soft drink but no ice tea, and Shiner Bock is the only beer on tap...but why would you want anything other than a Shiner Bock with an Adair's cheeseburger? Mmmmmmmmmmm...good stuff.

Marker on his khakis? LOL!

Country music is not my first choice, but I don't hate it. In fact, it sounds more and more like what I used to listen to back in the seventies... And the songs at least have a story-line.

The only "music" (and I use the term loosely) I cannot abide is rap. Lisa :-]

Agh I wish my mom did that. She only likes oldies or talk radio. That's it. Drives me crazy because she complains about my music so much lol I'm exactly like you in this respect. I love all kinds of music. People find it funny when I say I like Black Eyed Peas right after talking about Frank Sinatra lol
