    Sorry, the correct link for Violet's obit is here.

    Haaa, yeah I am about to turn 50. We moved here back in the early 70's when I was around 9. I just remember our dad taking us over there for tacos and I think it very well may have been called the Tamale House. It was on the NW corner and it was very small as I remember.

    The Stallion had not only the chicken fried steak with a greenish tinted gravy, but an amazing enchilada plate that was as greasy as anything I have ever eaten. Great jukebox as well.

    I lived under the flight path near 45th and Airport for awhile. We could see the Mrs. Johnson's Bakery sign from our house and when the red light was on it meant that hot doughnuts were available. Yum.

    Forest Ridge. The Backyard. Camping at Hamilton Pool and jumping off the top at night!

    I was bummed when "Beans" became s sushi place. I remember when there was only one sushi place and one Indian place in Austin. More diversity in dining options is good, but I did like the nachos at "Beans"

    Ohh man, I forgot about Mrs. Johnsons, used to pick up fresh donuts while driving into work a couple times a month.

    Not sure that I can say I "miss" them but these all had great memories for me-

    Southpark Meadows 83 The Police, 84 The Cars
    Austin Music Hall when it was off S Congress
    City Coliseum for Concerts
    When Stubbs was on I-35- Stubbs had the biggest hands of any person I had ever seen
    Academy on I-35
    When you would drive N on I-35 and an airplane would go about 100' over your head on landing
    6th St on Halloween before the barriers
    Mt Bonnell when there were no houses around and you could explore
    Driving over the Damn on 620 instead of the bridge
    Teamsloan and stratosrally like this.

    What happened to that opening back up after a couple of years? And I'm still waiting for that section at City Park to open back up. It's been more than 10 years already.

    Good Eats Café was always tasty.

    I also miss the GM steakhouse on the drag, everything was priced so they wouldnt take pennies and everything you ordered was a cheeseburger variant.

    The old Academy across from Hancock Center was a place of magic and mystery; went there often when I lived on Kirkwood St in Duplex Nation behind Fiesta (the rail road tracks were in the backyard). Dark crowded aisles, splintery floors, but you could usually find what you were looking for and it was so fun to browse.
    Salvation Sandwiches on the Drag, maybe the first of the food carts. Carrot cake/cream cheese sandwich, to die for.
    A snapshot in time: riding bikes on the upper deck of I 35 after construction was completed but before it opened to traffic.
    Does anyone else remember the day of no traffic during the gasoline shortage? The streets of Austin were deserted and bikes ruled.

    Bought a lot of my camping gear there when I first moved to Austin! There was also a really cool fly fishing shop up on Parmer Lane - anyone remember the name of that?
