Gilley's is a goner. Once it was the most famous of honky-tonks, a vast 70,000-square-foot beer joint on a gone-to-seed street lined with used car lots and pawnshops. John Travolta made the mechanical bulls here all the rage after he rode them in the movie "Urban Cowboy." But the nightclub--self-described as the "biggest, brawlingest, dancingest, craziest honky-tonk in Texas"--was locked shut Friday morning, the day after a court-appointed receiver ordered it closed.
