Birthdays at Cowboy Country in Long Beach

This is an older photo, same place as last night, but from 2005: Cowboy Country

Please excuse the older photo, I didn’t take any last night.  I have to say, I hate to complain, but…. here goes my review of Cowboy Country.

Once upon a time, I took free line dancing classes with a bunch of friends, but that didn’t last.  Some friends continued, some moved on, just like me, to other things.  I have to say, I hate country music!  I can’t get into it, but I can appreciate the fact that others like it and like to line dance.

The cover to get in wasn’t bad.  It’s free to get in before 7:00 p.m., after that cover charge is $5 a person.  Not bad, but in a place like this, really a cover?  It’s worth it to get in before 7, but alas, we missed the seven o’clock cut off and had to pay.

The first issue I had was when I decided to buy myself a glass of wine.  The bartender shorted me $1.  I know it happens sometimes, but there you go that was your tip. Is it wrong of me to think this way?

About an hour later I decided to grab myself another glass, this time my hubs flagged down the waitress, she never brought us our drinks. Oh well, we saved ourselves another $10.  Good deal!!

Right before we left, I decided, it was time for a diet coke.  My lovely hubby went to the bar, asked for a diet coke, but came back with a regular coke. Strike three!!

Lucky 11-11-11 for me, it wasn’t.  :-(.  Did I have a good time despite the flaws? Surprisingly yes, I had a great time celebrating my friend’s birthday and hanging out in a place that in a way, took me back “home”.  This photo, as I mentioned is an older photo taken at Cowboy County, but it represented a really happy time in my life, and to me that means coming home.

I’ve only been to Cowboy Country a handful of times and would never go there on my own, but overall I’m glad I got out of the house. This  place is pretty crowded and safe. It’s an older establishment, but clean.  The food isn’t good, pass on that. When I asked for Merlot, the waitress looked at me as if I was an idiot and asked me if I wanted red wine, but the place is still entertaining and if you go enough times you get to know many of the regulars.

*** DISCLAIMER: Oh by the way, I don’t line dance, so no animals were injured in the celebration (and yes this is my pathetic attempt at a joke.)

Overall Cowboy Country gets 2.5 out of 5 Gerber Daisies. It was still fun and if I had to go back I would for special occasions ONLY.


To quote Country artist, Faith Hill, Country music is the people’s music.  It just speaks about real life and about truth and it tells things how they really are. I agree, that’s why it’s usually depressing
