Judy and I were watching the latest episode of SECRET PRINCES on TLC the other night when we spied a familiar sight.
The show is absolute trash but it’s fun to watch because it takes place right here in River City. The premise of the show is that four European princes (all bachelors), have come to Austin and gone undercover in search of the women of their dreams. They live in a home that’s worse than a frat house, have no jobs to speak of and very little money. They must win over a would-be “princess” based solely on their charms and personalities, not their titles and possessions.
In their search for true love the four young men visit many Austin restaurants, clubs and bars. On the latest episode they went to a venerable Buro establishment.
No, not the Poodle Dog Lounge. The men went to Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon for a spirited round of the legendary game of Chicken Shit Bingo. It was great to see Ginny’s on national television but I must confess that I’ve never been there.
One of these days, after the princes have left town, I might just have to stop by Ginny’s for a cold one some afternoon.
