Dear Editor, What’s with the ad for Liberty Lunch on p.60 of the July 22 Chronicle? I remember when Charlie Tesar bought Liberty Lunch decades ago and put all his friends and relatives to work there making it a real Austin music place. Are there plans to reopen it? The original Second Street location is now a trendy restaurant/bar place. And “trendy” is not what the original Liberty Lunch was. Thank heavens!

[Editor's note: Thanks for the memory. The Liberty Lunch ad ran as part of the Chronicle's Can You Find the Vintage Ad? contest celebrating our 30th anniversary. As to our knowledge, there are no plans for the Liberty Lunch to reopen.]
