During the week most things seem to close up by about 9 or 10 o'clock. But on the weekend a number of the beer gardens open their stages for live music. Among the best bets for Texas bands playing everything from rockabilly to the blues are Hondo's (312 W. Main St.) and the Silver Creek Beer Garden and Grill (310 E. Main St.), which also hosts an open mike once a week to anyone who wants to belt a tune.
