Here’s why you’ll want to visit:
Billy Bob’s Texas isn’t just known for being the World’s Largest Honky Tonk, either. The nightclub celebrates other claims of notoriety as well, such as this fun fact: Merle Haggard made the Guinness Book of World Records for buying the largest round of drinks when he purchased 5,095 shots for the entire crowd at the club one night. The bill totaled $12,737.50 and equaled 40 gallons of whiskey!
