When we lived down in South Austin, Sam's Town Point saw a bunch of our beer money vanish into their coffers. It's a friendly, little neighborhood dive bar that's been around for a solid coon's age.
Old timers would show up with crockpots filled with chili, and like as not a wandering musician would get up on the stage. Saw the Gourds, and affiliate members there plenty times.
This Tuesday, April 30th Sam's is hosting a Willie Nelson Birthday party and pot luck.
Who knows; you might get lucky, and ol Willie himself might show up.
