The Happiest Hour
Calamity Jane's in Georgetown
Description: A bar and restaurant with an understated Old West theme occupying an antiquated building in Georgetown.
Bonus: The lovely back patio, adorned with tall trees and wagon wheels.
About Calamity Jane, the person, not the place: She was a celebrity cowgirl and trick shooter who wore men's clothing, associated with Wild Bill Hickok, and smoked cigars while chewing tobacco.
Further proof of Calamity Jane's badassery: She slept peacefully in clouds of flies. In James D. McLaird's biography, a bewildered onlooker described "flies by the hundreds [which swarmed] about and into her mouth and nose, yet... she slumbered on and on."
