Listen: "In 1954, Paul and Maryann Joseph opened El Patio Restaurant at 2938 Guadalupe." Yes, for real – and now the Joseph family is inviting Austinites to help celebrate this milestone in their history. They'll be partying in one way or another all day long, with a special outside bar and live music, with KLBJ doing a live, drive-time broadcast in the afternoon, and – 65 years
, people! 1954! Oh! That's, like, way before Les Amis opened
! And now here it is, long after that hippie-era joint (and now Dolce Vita
and Frank & Angie's
, etc.) has closed … and still El Patio abides. Huzzah!
