If you’re a Texan you’ve been to Gruene Hall, or any other number of infamous dance halls. Music is big in Texas, especially country music. Stroll down 6th street in Austin, the live music capital of the world.
There are legendary dance halls all over Texas. The one that was in Longview was a legendary Honky-Tonk by reputation, I never went.
According to “Texas Dance Hall Preservation Inc.” you dance with your wife at a dance hall and dance with somebody elses wife at a honky-tonk.
I have been to quite a few dance halls including the oldest continuously operating hall, in Gruene, Texas. My wife tells a story about one time when they were really busy and I decided to help serve beer from behind the bar and was asked to leave.
Texas Dance Hall Preservation is out to save all that are left. Sounds like my kind of charity to me. They are a 501( c )3 . http://www.texasdancehall.org
