Many of us remember the original Rawhide, a great venue for western parties and a hit for out-of towners toting the little ones along side. When it moved out of town, we were left mainly with good ole western cookin’ as our fix for the cowboy lifestyle. And, do we love our Greasewood Flats, Handle Bar J’s and the Pinnacle Peak Patio. Westworld remained as one of the few venues for our look into our western heritage.
Looks like we may get more than just a “taste” of the old west once again: 40 acres at
Bell Road and 94th Street near Westworld will be developed into a western-themed recreational park. City council approved the initial proposal and more detailed plans will be submitted for final approval later this fall. If all goes forward, the venue could be open by fall, 2012.
I’ve always been a cowboy at heart – Yee Haw!
