For 50 years, the Broken Spoke stands at the southern end of South Lamar as an outpost for country and swing dancers and chicken-fried-steak aficionados. Its wooden porch, dirt parking lot, and neon sign mean it still looks like the remote dance hall it was when it was first built, more than 20 years before the first South by Southwest festival. Now, it's practically in the center of town, but developers of the 704-apartment building that surrounds the honky tonk dared not try to move the beloved landmark, and instead built around it.
