We live in Fort Worth, and if you're looking for a more typical "TX experience" I would NOT go to Dallas. The east side of the metroplex is stuffed full of snotty people who have forgotten what being a Texan is all about (sorry).


You HAVE to go to the Fort Worth Stockyards. Start dinner at the Lonesome Dove (rather expensive, but worth every penny). Stop at the White Elephant on the corner of North and Main to have a few drinks. Then make your way to Billy Bobs TX singers are always playing there. They have the mechanical bull, the biggest dance floor ever, and bull riding in the bar (though amature, still okay). Stay at the Stock Yards hotel. It's amazingly beautiful! Each room has its own theme, and it's one of the oldest standing hotels in the area. FYI - My fiancee and I meet at Cadillacs in North Main ST.


Next day, drive down New Braunsfuls and go float the river. If you're looking for a crazier time, float the Guadalupe. If you want something more quiet then float the Comal. Basically, you rent a tube, sit in it all day, drink beer and get wasted! It's so much fun, you'll have a blast.


BBQ - yes, Rudy's is great, but it's a chain. On your drive back to the Metroplex, take highway 67 up through Marble Falls (soooo beautiful) and stop at Hard 8's in Stephenville. I guarnatee it is the BEST DANG BBQ you will ever have in your life.


Let us know how it goes. Feel free to contact me if you want!

Good call on driving up through Marble Falls Jenna. That Hill Country drive is so pretty!


All of this Texas talk is making me crave a hot July day, floating on the Comal with an ice cold frosty beverage in hand, singing at the top of my lungs to Robert Earl Keen!!!! Summer where are you?

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
