Sometimes You Want to Go …

RECEIVED Mon., Aug. 12, 2019

Dear Editor,
    Thanks for the walk down Memory Lane with your recent list of old Austin gay bars [“An Incomplete Compilation …,” News, Aug. 9]. I am afraid you missed some of the better/bigger ones.
   Private Cellar
   The 505
   Green Parrot
   Backstreet Basics
   Waller Creek Saloon
   Snuffy’s Saloon
   Round Up
   Texas Colorado Street Bar
    Can you run an update next week? I am sure others will be adding to the list as well.

   Qmmunity Editor Sarah Marloff responds: Thank you for your note, Russell. As we noted in the piece (and headline), it’s an inexhaustive list due to time limits and space constraints. However, we are hoping to put together a complete list in the near future and are asking qmmunity members to let us know which bars are missing. If you remember a gay/lesbian/queer bar that we didn’t mention in “An Incomplete Compilation of the Gay Bars Austin Has Loved and Lost,” please email with the name, location (if you can remember), and any other info or anecdotes you remember. We’d also love to see some photos if you have those as well.
