Good coffee and good beer are served under the same roof. Brew & Brew, a coffee and beer bar, has definitely got the right idea. Don't want to travel that far for a cup of coffee? Just head to Jo's right down the street.

Even the hidden bars have weird names. Midnight Cowboy Modeling is labeled as an "Oriental Massage" establishment in the middle of the bars on crowded 6th Street. But ring the doorbell marked "Harry Craddock," and you'll be transported to a sneaky speakeasy bar where drinks come in tiki mugs.

Consejos para la ciudad

Frases útiles
Hankerin'
When you have a hankerin' for something it means you really gotta have it. The exact intensity of hankerins' are unknown, but we are fairly certain they range from 0 (kinda hankerins') to 10 (must-have-it-now hankerins'). This phrase can be replaced with "Fixin To" when the person truly commits to his/her hankerins'.
Frases útiles
Howdy Ya'll
Ya'll means All in the weirdest city in America. "Howdy Ya'll" means hello to everyone, regardless of race, sex, class, or if they are wearing cowboy hats or not.;)
Frases útiles
Fixin’ To
If you’re fixin’ to do something, it has literally nothing to do with fixing anything. "Fixin’ to" means you’re about to do something. Like, when your roommate asks you if you’re going to wash the dishes and you tell her you’re fixin’ to do it. Best to drop the “g” on pretty much everything in Texas if you want to fit in.
Frases útiles
Bless Yer Heart
"Bless Yer heart” is one of the most versatile statements you can have a hankerin' for in the southwest. Use it when you genuinely feel bad for someone and then immediately flip it when you are feeling sarcastic (i.e. Go F*ck Yerself).
Frases útiles
Might Could
Even though Texans love to shorten things in order to make it easier to say, the phrase might could is one instance where they take a phrase and draw it out. It’s literally just another way to say could but with an additional word in there. Instead of saying “I could do that for you,” they’ve got to say “I might could do that for you.”
Frases útiles
All Hat, No Cattle
If someone’s all hat and no cattle then it means that they’re all talk and no followthrough. Or, it means that someone speaks highly of themselves when they really don’t have anything to be bragging about.
Frases útiles
All Git-Out
You’ll use the Texas slang phrase all git-out when you want to convey the most extreme case of something. If you’re dining at a steakhouse and want to comment on how great the meal is, you could say “This steak is as good as all git-out.”
