Where does Mitt Romney like to party?

Maybe at Stoney's? NPR has a roundup of where to press the flesh on the campaign trail. Hint: Put on your spurs.

Stoney's looks like a dance hall crossed with a sports bar — if the only sport in the world was rodeo. And in a city dominated by Democrats, it has become a Republican haven. Chuck Muth, head of the group Citizen Outreach, is the founder of a monthly gathering for conservatives at Stoney's called First Fridays. "It's not really a political event," he says. "It's more just a fun event of people who like politics." Politics and half-price drinks.
