Getting to the bar before it opens is not my specialty.
But with SXSW giving Austin all the appeal of an open sewer we fled town at daybreak and hit Thorndale Texas before the barkeep at Steve’s Place had turned the key.
It’s a good looking old building and word has it that it’s a fine place to get a beer or set ups for that bottle of Early Times you carry around with you. Downtown Thorndale is lovely. Some of the buildings are tumbledown while others contain thriving businesses.
One imagines that Steve’s Place gets pretty busy once the drinkers drag themselves out of bed and get to the business at hand.
