Kinda looks like the Hard 8 in Coppell, but hard 8 is a gambling term, not a rodeo term. Actually, I guess it could go both ways...

Hard 8 in Coppell it is. Actually, I've always thought is was a very clever multiple entendre name. You've got the gambling term, and the reference to the 8 second ride on a bull or bronc, then there's the porn, lol

Hadn't thought of the porn reference. Their web site shows the dice rolling a hard 8, so that influenced my thinking.

I thought this "tag" would never make it through a weekend, I mean really! Not only is it centrally located, it's got some of the best bbq in the metromess. Come on people, get out there and ride to eat -eat to ride!

I'm a little out of town right now... otherwise, I'd have grabbed it...
I've not been to this location, only the one in Stephenville...

Yum.

Sorry, I rode last weekend to the Texas tag-o-rama and went to the salt lick in Driftwood Texas. I'll get working on this tag...

The Salt Lick is one of my favorite BBQ joints in the state of Texas. Hard 8 in Stephenville is another great one. My buddys place the Loco Coyote is also some of the best located outside Glen Rose.. Ranch House in Glen Rose is also outstanding. Smittys in Lockhart is excellent. Kreuzt Market in Lockhart, and on and on.

Yeah, I've thought about trying to get a few people and doing the "Texas BBQ and Beer Tour". Eat lunch and dinner at a noted BBQ spot in and around the hill country. There are so many worthy BBQ restaurants in Texas and so little time. Different styles of BBQ as well. Also, maybe visit a brewery as well. Its just an idea I had while riding this last weekend.

I'm going to try for the Hard 8 in Coppell tomorrow if anyone cares to join me for lunch. Be there around 11:15-11:30.

My version of the old tag:



and the New tag. I've been accused of making the last Texas tag too easy, so while this is a unique building, this photo was taken from a different angle than most people view it.

It could be that I'm a noob to north Texas, or I'm a complete doofus, or.........

I have absolutely no idea what or where that is...

Here's a hint. Its a structure in the DFW area that has won it's designer a gold medal. Tomorrow night, I'll post a photo with a different view. Didn't want to make it too hard or too easy.

You are correct! Was it the clue, or did you just recognize it? Here's my other shot.



This is a crappy shot. Sorry, its one of the reasons I posted the other pic first. Its a hard building to photograph well, especially if you have to work a the motorcycle into the shot.

For the record, its the Marty Leonard Chapel of the Lena Pope home.

I recognized the roof.

It's a very striking building to say the least, never been in it though.

Its even more striking inside. I've been in and took a photo or two, but couldn't find the pics. The women that was working there was very friendly and allowed me to take some photos.
