Item description for Jukeboxes & Jackalopes, A Wyoming Bar Journey by Julianne Couch...
Jukeboxes & Jackalopes is an apt description of this collection of essays in which the author shares her impressions of some of the unique bars scattered throughout small towns in Wyoming--some so small that the bar may be the only business at a location named and noted on the map but perhaps only claiming two residents. Regardless of size or remoteness of location, these watering holes often serve as community centers and living rooms away from home for those folks who populate the neighboring ranches and energy industry camps and offer a delightful experience for travelers who dare to leave the Interstate in search of a unique experience.

Need a drink in wyoming....this is the guide Sep 13, 2007
Wyoming prides itself in being thought of as one small town with a long main street and a great people-to-bar ratio. Okay, so I added the people-to-bar ratio based on personal experience. But many of these great bars are not on main street; rather you have to stumble off into the alleyways and dirt roads. So if your goal is to get off of main street to explore the old western bar with more local color than you can only imagine, you might want a succinct and witty guide to take along. Look no further: Julianne Couch's new book Jukeboxes and Jackalopes captures with style and grace the people and places you will find in the small town taverns out here in the Big Empty. I know--I live in a Wyoming town. We have 100 people and 3 bars, which by all measures is a great ratio. But it is still a town too big to be included in this little gem of a book.
A Humorous Bar Tour of Wyoming Jul 14, 2007
Ever wonder what the inside of a bar looks like and what kind of people frequent that bar as you speed by in your vehicle? Would the people be friendly? Would they be interesting to talk to, and would they be interested in you? Well, Julianne Couch makes the stops for you, enters the bars, and talks with the people. It is a great way to tour Wyoming and learn about the people who live there. Julianne Couch writes with a humorous touch. She is a modern day Mark Twain, a keen observer and storyteller. I know the next time I travel through Wyoming I'll take along a copy of Jukeboxes & Jackalopes so I'll know where to stop for a cold one and learn more about the people who live in the small town's of Wyoming.
