Best Survivor of the Brave, New, Meat-Free World

Austin Shoe Hospital at Windsor & Exposition

Since inheriting West Austin's Tarrytown shopping center several years ago, rabid animal-rights activist Jeanne Daniels has waged a crusade to cleanse the strip mall of any selling of meat or animal by-products. Neighborhood favorites – the Grocery, Formosa, Texas French Bread, and 50-year-old family restaurant Holiday House – were all out faster than you could say "Heeeeeeere piggy, piggy!" due to the meat=murder clause. However, there have been a few survivors of Daniels’ purge, most notably the Austin Shoe Hospital’s Tarrytown branch. As a part of the deal, this particular Shoe Hospital no longer carries leather products ... an interesting business plan for a service that revolves around leather products.
