BUH-BYE, LIBERTY LUNCH! People always say, “Too soon!” But, so, is this too late? We think not. We think if Independence Brewing Company wants to throw a sort of wake for the beloved Austin club that closed in the Nineties – if they want to invite citizens to attend while dressed in their best duds from those halcyon days, to try to win the costume contest and enjoy $3 pours of Liberty Lunch brew on tap – then we’re all for it. Note: Of course, Indie Brew, ol’ pals, we are expecting a follow-up Les Amis farewell party now … Sat., Jan. 12, noon-9pm Independence Brewing Company, 3913 Todd #607, 512/707-0099. www.independencebrewing.com
