Ronnie Butler. HALF-DOLLAR THE HALF DOLLAR LOUNGE.. Ready to update your Dallas Bar notebook? Well, here's another 'must try' for you. And put a little gold star next to it, because this is one little bar you' re really going to like. The Half ollar has been nestling quietly on Fitzhugh (3220 N.Fitzhugh)FOR almost four months now, opened in June of this year. It has slowly come to life to a point now where it's really one of the towns most talked-about places. It's a WESTERN bar and truly western it is....from its owner to the clientele; once a straight bar called Jerry's, this place backs up to a large apartment residential area of Gays who find this location very convenient to and from everywhere. This is why on some nights you'll find a blending of mods with cowboys sporting the latestest in westernwear. The manager here, is rugged Gerald Van Sickle, whose wes- ern wear depicts the mood from the moment you enter. The long lost and almost forgotten western hospitality of the by-gone era seems to be back again at this interesting bar. A beer-bar, this place is alive with the energy of its owner Ray Hadaway; some may recall his earlier association with R.L. and later the Ranch. Ray is quick to explain his reason for having a western bar....'A western bar is me...I'm western Page 4 ...it's how I think, and I know a lot of people who think like me. And our kind of people will like our kind of place'. Born in Pecan Gap. Texas, he stands five foot eleven inches, has blue eyes, sandy brown hair and a typical texan twang to his voice. As bars go the HALF DOLLAR reflects the individuality of the owner. If you like people you'll like the ones who go there. It's cruisy, clean, well-located, ample parking space, no red-neck problems, and this place just seems to have a natural magnetism which draws a lot of natural Gays to it. Good luck Dallas, you've got ANOTHER winner you can shout about. MARK TWAIN REVAMPS MARK TWAIN REDECORATES.. The plush MARK TWAIN in Dallas has already begun seeking new ways to upgrade itself, and at the same time provide new measures of safety for its vol uminous crowds. The upstairs PIANO BAR s congested with people, all the way up the stairway, and so crowd ing this limited area with people, caused Frank Caven(the owner) to have to rebuild the upstairs area to help accomodate so many people at one time; the serving bar was enlarged and moved away to allow for penetration of a door; a new exit to the outside was made and additional standing room came as an indirect result of the change Frank admits he didn't expect the kind of activity this upstairs area has enjoyed, but thinks the problem is taken care of, now, even though it'll still be crowded, there will be little danger ov exiting in the event of emergency. Aside from a newer longer bar upstairs, Frank has also added a large chandelier over the piano (shades of Liberace), and together with the dark paneling and the fireplace, this room seems even more intimate than before. Fire regulations carefully observed, this becomes a much safer environment now. THE PATIO is as yet unfinished but mostly left undone are the bar, and decor. The concrete is already poured and the fence is already up. The original sign depicting the MARK TWAIN has come down, but was replaced by a newer one atop the house-like building; the two large GAS-LIGHT TORCHES remain to herald the visitor and are easily seen a mile away. Situated amid LEMMON avenue traffic, parking is no problem here. Lots of off and on--street parking around the building; an early day starter, this club has already soared to the top of the list containing Dallas' most pop- ular night spots. VERBAL MAP OF DALLAS Dallas is sure a fun town to mobile around in, these days. Everything seems so spread out at first, but really, there are so many places to go now, and so much to do that that city is a GAY PRIZE to visit! And it's easier to find your way around in that great city than you think. If you'll just take some notes, we'll show you.... For example, start downtown. Take Ross away from downtown to N.Central Expressway heading north, and in a few minutes you will be exiting off HENDERSON where you'll swing a left, then another left(back on the feeder toward town) go one block, then turn RIGHT and you'll be at MCKINNEY. Just to your right sits the ENCORE. Leaving the ENCORE, take MCKinney to the corner back to henderson; turn left, and go one block to COLE where you'll want to turn left again. Take COLE all the way down (TOWARD TOWN)TO HALL Street where you'll turn left once more to bring you back to McKinney again. Park it. You'll be just between TJ's and RONSUE'S. After leaving these two wild places, take McKinney again (toward the Encore) a couple of blocks to lemmon avenue and turn LEFT. Take Lemmon for a short trip to the MARK TWAIN. Vistt that new club and then continue on LEMMON until you come to Mockingbird where you'll turn left... (that is the same road to the airport, and take the lane that says to airport)....pass the airport and turn left on*: DENTON DRIVE, where you'll turn left off Mockingbird; take DENTON DR. (going back toward town) to what will appear tc be almost a dead end; actually this dead-end will be lighted and loaded with cars. Here is where you will find the new SPEAKEASY.When you're through funnin' and dancin' here, get back on the same road and head back in the same direction toward town again...this road becomes MAPLE....and you'll soon come to the RANCH. After the RANCH, you'll keep on the same street until you come to CEDAR SPRINGS where you'll turn, right, drive a short way to Pearl Street where you'll find the BAYOU LANDING just off the corner on PEARL next door to a bar-stool supply business. No trouble finding it, it's, the busiest largest place in town. Then, from the LANDING, you start your next leg of the journey; head back into the heart of town to pick up LIVE OAK and take it away from town until you arrive at SKILES...where you will find three interesting places: THE ENTREE NUIT, THE VILLA FONTANA, and THE BATHS. It's a great trip, and you'll like finding these places. From each, you'll be able to obtain the addresses and locales of the other lounges in each vicinity., and there ARE several more within easy reach, such as the HALF DOLLAR, HIGHLAND, BON SOIR, etc., but you'll have to make those part of your itinerary after you've learned your way around this great BAR city. TJ. A WINNER T.J.'s OF DALLAS □ □What there is about this place noone can answer, but it's certainly got SOMETHING! One may almost term it an enigma. And how this large place manages to fill every corner is astounding, people are still asking the same question over and over again... how does Margaret manage to do it? Some of the ingredients are dancing, pool tables, game machi- and atmosphere of a raw 'BAR'. No pretense here. Most people feel the reason for T.J.'s popularity is mainly due to M.H. HERSELF.Or maybe, just maybe, its because this place gives one the feeling that whether in torn jeans or cut-offs, or wearing a cotto n safari jacket, or whatever, you're welcome here. And, THAT FACT is made plain the moment you encounter Marg. at the door or the friendly bartend er who's not afraid to smile at The service is excellent, and judging by the length of the bar, it's obvious why her bartenders are able to remain slim. They literally 'run up' to servee you. T.J.'S IS LOCATED JUST RIGHT and that makes the difference too. Known for its cooperative attitude with all the other Gay bars in Big D this place has endured while others have come and gone. Perhaps because the patrons here seem to be the most fiercely loyal. Reminds one of the cigarette ad.
