Texas Independence Day

Happy hour
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Before Texas was a state, it was an independent republic, and March 2 is celebrated annually in the Lone Star State to mark the day Texas seceded from Mexico in 1836. The Texas-inspired barbecue joint Hill Country honors the date with country music by Scott Kurt, a special menu of Texas grub and $3 Shiner Bocks all night.
