Cal Day pic 2 Sep 18Growing up in Karnes County in the 1950s and 60s it was not uncommon for whole families to go to dance halls. It was always especially heartwarming to see parents on the dance floor with their children teaching them to dance and having fun. THE ROUNDUP in Bergheim Texas has reincarnated the family dance halls of my childhood. It is a great place to spend Friday, Saturday, or Sunday evening with the family. In addition to having a live band with dancing for all including children, they have a children’s playground and a face painting booth. There are several food trucks there with a big variety in cuisine. My favorite is a food truck called “THE ANT SPOT” where I routinely order fried catfish and Boudin balls. There are number of television screens for the sports enthusiasts. The atmosphere is delightfully positive and laid-back and for those of us who enjoy music but also enjoy an evening of conversation and fellowship there’s no problem getting far enough away from the band so that the music is not too loud. It is a great place to people watch and to see some phenomenal dancers. On our latest visit to “THE ROUNDUP” we ran into three sets of friends that we had not seen in some time so it was quite a treat. In addition the lead singer and guitarist for the band (Mark Odem) graduated from my alma mater (Karnes City High School) so we had a quite a nice chat. THE ROUNDUP is located about 30 minutes north of San Antonio at 531 FM 3351 N Boerne, TX  78006. http://www.therounduptx.com
