12:50 p.m. Sunday: Best Place to Drink Beer Out of a Boot

Clayton Club Saloon

Acoustic tiles get expensive, so the owners of the Clayton Club covered the ceiling with boots instead. Dozens of them dangle from the ceiling, each inscribed with the name of its former owner. The longest continuously running saloon in Clayton — you can spot photos of the town founders drinking there on the walls — the 125-year-old club now attracts a heady mix of ranchers, bikers, gearhead-style hipsters, and drunks. To make your own contribution to immortality, you have to drink a beer out of your own boot. In front of the bartenders. How you hobble home is your own problem.
