For how long are you in town? Denton is a college town so there are a lot of bars to hit but I can't tell you about mulit-taps. Are wanting "refined" entertainment such as Museums? Or are you just looking to drink some beer?

... and the Cabernet Royale...
Cabaret Royale, it's not a wine bar!!!!! And if this is the route you want to take The Men's Club is the best in Dallas, and The Lodge is a very close second. Cabaret has gone down hill in the last decade or so.

Yeah, we are just here through Saturday. We figured we'd drive into Dallas today to check out the JFK murder stuff and have lunch.

Yeah I'm not really into the whole men's club thing. Too many of those in Portland.... Most per capita in US. Really hoping for a decent brew pub in denton as we went to some place called pour house last night and while acceptable. Beer choices were pretty bad. I just might be spoiled back home though. Thanks everyone for your recommendations. I really appreciate them.

Woops. I haven't been into one of those places in at least 10 years (closer to 20), but I do remember that one.

You could drop by Gordon Biersch on Park lane. The food is not bad and they have a decent beer selection.

There is also a Gordon Biersch in north Plano. In the Shops at Legacy. In the same shopping center is The Gingerman and Ringo's Pub. Both are pretty decent multi-taps, Gingerman having a better selection. It is basically at the Dallas North Tollway and Legacy, just south of Hwy 121 (Sam Rayburn Tollway). Lots of neat bars and restaurants in there. There is a Fox Sports Bar too if you're into that.

Glad JFK finally got it through his head we don't want him in Dallas.
