“And up through the ground come a bubblin’ crude. Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea...” We’ve all heard the song, seen the show, know the slang. But at Double D Ranch, these ubiquitous terms mean something altogether different!
This quaint little Marfa inn once housed some of the biggest stars in Hollywood -- as well as the rest of the cast and crew for Giant -- in the summer of ‘55. Decades later, this 41-room West Texas retreat is renovated and open for lodging, and offers travelers plenty to eat, shop, and do.
Turns out, after a brutal, very long day of shooting photography for Giant… WE did! (Catalog shoots are an arduous, exhausting event, and some days, they’ll drive ya to drinkin’.) Fortunately, Jett’s Grill at the Hotel Paisano had just the thing.
