Almost Out of Gas is an ongoing project to capture and share with you perfectly unpolished fragments of Texas culture. Music, jug wine, bourbon, beer and great food bring people in communities together, and we are compelled to seek out and document the social and cultural impact of the common man – that is the lifestyle we feature.

Talking to beer drinkers, bartenders, old-timers and newcomers has given us a small but valuable insight into, and understanding of, this vibrant culture. Still, after thousands of miles of dusty Texas roads in the company of circling vultures, howling coyotes and rattling diamondbacks, we’re intent on bringing you the same beauty we see in the rickety, creaky and sometimes forgotten gathering spots – the Texas Honky-Tonks.

Welcome to Almost Out of Gas!

  1. Great shot of Club 21 in Uhland. It burned to the ground a couple of weeks ago. Sad, sad story. Just goes to show you, you might not pass that way again so enjoy it while you’re there!

  2. Just stumbled across this blog. Love the idea, love the execution of said idea.

    You guys should check out Longview, Tx as there are several great Honky Tonk’s up this way.

    Sheila’s Wild West club being my favorite. Fits James Hands’ description to the letter of what a Honky Tonk is.

    But there is also a bit of history up here with the REO Palm Isle having been bought and currently in the progress of re-opening.

    Keep up the great work.

    1. Hi Johhny! Sorry it took a while to reply. You kind of fell in between. I will absolutely check out Longview. I’ll keep y’all posted about next mayor trip.

  3. Club 21 has been a favorite since i was a wee girl and learned to 2 step standing on my Dads feet. Will it be reopenning? And anyone know a date it will be open again?
