Today I’m pairing two bar signs taken in two different cities. What first caught my attention with Gramps is the double rail mounted sign.

Anytime ‘air conditioning’ comes before ‘cold beer’ is a serious indication that this picture was taken in a city where the average temperature on any given day is above 85 degrees.
Doc’s is a bar located in the SOCO district (South Congress) of Austin. This is one of the most memorable signs that I came across. Austin’s motto is “Keep Austin Weird” which explains this message:
