Around here, they tell the story of the cowboy who rode through the front door of the Kirkwood Inn, trailing his packhorse bearing a deer he had just bagged. He rode up to the bar and demanded: "Bartender, pour me a whiskey!" The bartender protested: "We don't serve people this way." The cowboy pulled a gun and shot out the light above the bartender's head. He got his whiskey. Two things about the story: It's true. And it happened only three years ago.
