The Cowboy Scene

I just spent two weeks in the relatively deep-south / wild-west, doing that whole family thing.

    You’ve obviously never traveled to the Latino section of town–they’re dressed like this all the time! Especiall those belt buckles–they’re as big as a WWF championship belt.

    Ronnie–

    I live in the “Latino section of town” — one of them anyway. My shock isn’t that cowboy hats exist in OC, it’s that white kids where them to the Spectrum!!

    I’m going to pass on the cowboy scene and wait for the lumberjack bar to open up.

    Right! And as long as it’s in Orange County, we’re guaranteed a premium level of authenticity.

    The urban cowboys always used to hang out at In Cahoots in Fullerton. Is it still open? Last time I passed by, it seemed to be undergoing a major renovation.

    My surprise is that this phenom is in Irvine! I can’t imagine this Asian dominated territory actually going the “western” route!

    My theory is that there are cowboy-types throughout OC, and they just choose to gather at the Specturm because they can. I also firmly believe there are many more living among us than we know, and lots only “play dress up” when they’re going to the Crazy Horse, so the rest of the time we think they’re our run-of-the-mill OC folk.

    Good theory, Doss. I’ll buy it. Besides, it lends credence to this whole “dress up” pointers post.
