Bone Daddy’s coming to Plano Texas on the Tollroad?

Posted by    |    September 9th, 2011 at 10:36 pm

Yes it’s true.Bone Daddys Plano

Right by the new cult following Chuy’s on the East side of the tollroad, will be another tempting place to stretch your waistlines.

Many people that have not been to Bone Daddy’s are very surprised. This place is a mix of Hooters, Brickhouse, and Dickey’s BBQ. Some feel awkward going to places like this with your wife and kids.

Older gentlemen, I’m sure, feel like creepy old men.  And the 20 something guy crowd couldn’t be happier!

The waitresses wear tight clothes, but the majority should think twice before they show up to work.Bone Daddys House of Smoke

They do not close until midnight and prepare to have a little issue with your waitress and her timing on refills and service. I’m sure they are encouraged to mingle with the customers.  But TVs are everywhere!
Their focus is barbeque, but they have a fantastic chicken fried steak.

So before you make the 45 minute wait at Chuy’s before your movie which is walking distance, in late 2011 you will have another choice Bone Daddy’s!

(Or be smart and take the Drive Thru at In-N-Out Burger 5 minutes away!)

Horses and Longhorns in Plano Texas?

Posted by    |    September 8th, 2011 at 2:33 pm

Yes there are.Horses in Plano

If you wonder what Plano is like, here’s a typical site in West Plano. Still open land, this is at
Corporate and the Dallas North Tollroad on JCPenney headquarters property. Beautiful horses and their foals, about 25 horses, we are guessing.

I think we kind of take this for granted. In the distance is the Dallas North Tollway and Shops of Legacy – a stones throw away. Just so you know there are lots of SUV’s and pickup trucks too but most the cowboys are in Ft. Worth.

My son loves to hear that we are going to feed the horses slices of apples. They all come galloping over and it’s all worth it to see the smile on his face.

Longhorns in Plano

On the opposite side there are Longhorns ranging from 600 pounds up to 1,400 pounds. And no, we do not try to feed them.
This is a great activity for anyone who has little ones and wants something different to do!

Good TimesThe 2011 Plano Independence Day Parade themed, “Let Freedom Ring,” took place on Monday, July 4th in Plano.

 

A huge turnout as usual gathered on both sides of Independence as we drove up to our yearly spot to celebrate America’s Independence.  This was our 15th year at the parade as a family and we had a great time.

The parade began on time at 9:00am and wound its way from 15th Street to Parkhaven along Independence Parkway.  It was filled with the usual participants: Boys and Girl scouts, Plano Councilman Ben Harris, local churches, kid sports teams, local businesses and  parents marching pulling their children in decorated wagons.  Other children rode their bicycles, decorated with crepe paper and American flags.  (more…)
