Palmer Events Center
900 Barton Springs Rd.
If and when this site is converted to a fine arts space for the swells, where will we proles go for events like the Austin Record Convention, lowrider shows, debutante balls, and the SAMI Arts & Crafts Show? Sure, this multipurpose facility is dated, but we have a feeling that like an ornery but kindhearted old uncle, once it's gone we'll miss it a lot. (See related story in "Politics.")
