When you have a hankering to visit the Lucky Lounge, the parking lot’s just to the east of the place, which describes itself as unique and diverse.
(Although, judging from the photos on the site, the “diversity” consists of 4 musicians, and 18 young women, all of whom look like they’ve been legally able to drink for, say, 15 or 20 minutes. But who am I to judge?)
Another view of Uhland, just steps away from where I found this trailer.
I am sort of digging Uhland. For one thing, the place was named for a poet.
And also because of the last sentence of the town’s history, offered simply, without detail: Club 21 was burned down due to a car racing accident in 2012.
You know how much I love old, ragged buildings, right?
Earlier this month, I was in Austin, Texas, and decided to drive around some nearby small towns, seeking some photogenic (to me) buildings. However, I failed to account for the revitalization of places like Kyle and Buda. I mean, they are nice enough if you are looking for a town with a pie shop, or a store that sells scented soaps, or even a day spa.
But they just don’t work if you want something that hasn’t been (or won’t ever be) fixed up.
The town of Uhland, however, was perfect.
