New in Lubbock – February 2016
It is a new month, and we have even more new places to grub, drink, relax and play in the “Hub City.” February is the month of romance, and we already shared our date ideas for Valentine’s Day, but if you are looking to fall in love with some place new, this list is for you. Take your date out for a steak, chocolate-covered apples and top it off with a nice night of dancing in this month’s New in Lubbock.
The largest dancehall in West Texas has opened to a lot of hype. Charley B’s kicked off their first weekend with sell-out nights featuring Jason Boland and Cody Canada, and have since hosted Wade Bowen and Rich O’Toole, with no signs of slowing down. With 27,000 square feet of space there is always room to two-step, even on packed events.

Wow…Charley B's is like The Billy Bob's of West Texas.

We put the spotlight on Mountain Hideaway‘s first store just a few months ago, but now they are right in the student spotlight with their second location. Just a minute walk from the Texas Tech Seal, this is an excellent spot for one of our favorite retailers. With an updated look and fresh gear, anyone who fancies themselves an outdoorsman or gal must check out Mountain Hideaway.

It is no secret that we love chicken and waffles, especially when the waffle is Texas-shaped, so obviously that was our go-to at Slim Chickens’ new location. If you haven’t been to the first location, now is the time to try their tenders. Slim Chickens offers a Southern atmosphere and is fast, casual and social.
