Cain’s Ballroom and a new Star

About a week ago I went for a little run during my lunch hour. I meandered north of Downtown through the Brady District and passed by the Legendary Cain’s Ballroom, former home of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.

The Ballroom has stars in the sidewalk commemorating famous musicians with ties to Cain’s. Here are some of them.

They have a new category for bloggers with ties to Cain’s. Here is the star for the first awardee.

My World – Cain’s Ballroom

I know that I’m a little obsessed with it but Cain’s is special. It is a link from now back almost 80 years ago to a different time.

    I totally dig the Cain’s. And WOW! You got your very own star? Of course you did. You’re slightly famous in Tulsa. I think you were the first non-gay guy to buy a Snuggie and LIKE it.

    Is it bad that I only knew one person listed on the stars besides YOU?

    What a fun, great post!! Sorry to have been absent the past couple of days, but you know how moving is!!! It’s actually beginning to look a bit like home instead of an empty apartment, though!! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!

    I’m so impressed Yogi! :)))

    Bloggers are great people and you are definitely one of the best. (And I’m not saying this tongue in cheek.)

    I haven’t a clue who the “stars” are but I recognise the last one – I’m sure it’s well deserved 🙂
    It’s not everyone who has a star to mark their fame/infamy – not sure which applies!

    I’m glad you took time out of your lunch hour to take such interesting photos Yogi. I especially liked your personalized star.

    You are famous!!! I know a famous blogger! A fun thought. You have very right to love this place and what it represents. I would love it, too. I wonder for what I could receive a star….still teaching at 72….I think that would qualify being I am the oldest teacher in the entire system!

    Oh I love it. That is great. We love Cain’s too. The Hubby did the design on the new lighting when they renovated it a few years ago and when he turned 50 (a few years back) I had his surprise birthday party there!
