Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon

Austin, TX

“While traveling around the state, I have made it a point to check out the local watering holes in the cities I go through. This popular spot in Austin has its regulars during the week who come in the middle of the day. Generally they talk to one another, but the bartenders don’t get involved. But this one serves the beer, then joins the regulars on the drinking side of the bar to enjoy her midday soaps and reruns.”
