Cowboy Jack's may win Western logo shoot-out

Western-themed restaurants and bars have been hot lately in Rochester.Texas-roadhouse1

We now have Texas Roadhouse, Wild Bill's Sports Saloon, Whiskey Creek Wood Fire Grill, Whiskey Bone's Roadhouse and the latest high plains drifter to ride into town is Cowboy Jack's Eatery. 

Cowboy Jack's is part of a Twin Cities chain and is slated to open soon within the former America's Best Value Hotel on South Broadway.

LEach has its own take on a rough and ready Western atmosphere.

 

However, going just by logos alone, it looks like the the latest addition to the Med City corral could be the toughest hombre ever seen in these parts.

 

• Texas Roadhouse has kind of 60's diner look with a cowboy hat wearing state. Eyecatching.

•  Wild Bill's invokes the whole tin star thing with sort of sheriff/ U.S. marshall/ ranger feel. That's a strong logo. 16418249_BG1

• Whiskey Creek goes with a flaming campfire design invoking cowboys around a fire after a day of driving cattle across the prairie.

 

 

• Whiskey Bones has an Elvis in a 50's diner thing going on, sort like the restaurant that John Travolta took Uma Thurman in "Pulp Fiction."

And then there's Cowboy Jack's.

• There's a skull of a Texas longhorn steer with

glowing red vengeful, demonic eye sockets and fangs. Very macho and a little spooky.

And then there's the crossed meat cleavers behind the skull that are actually DRIPPING BLOOD.

Uh... yeah... OK. That's an insanely intense logo.

That's the roughest, toughest logo of the crew. That logo paints Cowboy Jack's as the guy in the black hat who shoots first and then stands with one scuffed boot on the chest of his victim while he casually lights a cigarette.

Cheapest Roch beer? Roch. Mag wants to know

Here's an interesting question by Rochester Magazine Editor Steve Lange:


We want to be your clearinghouse for Rochester’s cheapest beer prices. And we want to be that clearinghouse so we–mostly Jamie and I–can buy cheap beer. We’re bud-man

looking, somewhat regularly, for the cheapest 24-pack cans of A) Bud Light; B) Busch Light and C) Natural Light (for poker night). Mostly B&C (the economic crisis has finally hit home). Any suggestions?


I wonder if Rochester Magazine has any openings? That office sounds a little looser than the newsrooms. Heh.
