Austin's Wonderful Late-Night Eateries

RECEIVED Tue., Jan. 13, 2004

Dear Editor,
   Reading the article on Austin late-night eateries has made me fierce homesick ["Second Helpings," Food, Jan. 9]. Since moving to San Jose, Calif., in 2000, I've told all my pals how wonderful Austin is, how one can actually go out for dinner after 10pm.
   San Jose, if you don't know, rolls up the sidewalks and turns off the stars nightly, at 9pm. The weekend club scene is blitzkrieg-closed by hordes of police at 2am.
   Then I read this lovely article about Magnolia Cafe, Kerbey Lane, and even Katz's. Homesick I am. Wanting good food, after work. Is the Starz Inn coffee shop still open?
   Oh, to once again savor the delicious green chile chicken enchiladas at Chuy's.
   Yes, I miss Austin. I'd come back, if only there were some paying jobs.
