Polish up your cowboy boots, you've got some dancing to do. Good Time Design's latest, Moonshine Flats, official opens the doors of its dazzling, country-tinged playground tonight to the public.

Inside, there's 7,000-square-feet of fun, from spinning shot chairs (they're giving out free ones) to beer pong, arcade games and a swath of dance floor on which to strut it out.

For now, Moonshine is open Thursday through Saturday; on Thursday, it's $3.50 you-call-its all night. From 7 to 9 p.m., it's line dancing time, follow by a couple hours of live music (if you're bold, you can sing with the band) and then a DJ until close. Down the line, the bar may extend their hours to Wednesdays too.

Their specialty drinks, served in mason jars, are all moonshine-based, including the Apple Pie Donkey with apple pie moonshine, ginger beer and lime. There's also Jack Daniels on tap.

Food, which is ordered at a window that connects to Lucky's Lunch Counter is of the county fair-variety, think fried Snickers, bacon-wrapped chicken fingers and a burger with a donut bun; the full menu is available until 2 a.m.

Not to be outdone by the infamous Ryan Gosling bathroom, the stalls in the ladies room have a "Cowboys and Bad Boys" theme, with pin-up pics of everyone from Luke Bryan to Lenny Kravitz.
