I went to the U of Texas from 1965 to 1968. Austin was a sleepy little town of 200,000 people in those days, in some ways better than it is now, and in some days worse.
It was worse in the selection of food that one could get. Imagine a Jewish boy from Brooklyn not being able to get a bagel, either a good or bad one, or Chinese food. It was really a culture shock to me.
Fast forward about forty years. I decided to take my wife to see Austin. We got in late on a Friday night, and my wife was hungry. We asked the concierge to recommend a restaurant, and he sent us to Katzís restaurant. We walked in and I ordered Kasha Varniskas. You could have knocked me over with a feather.
Stan, I am jealous of you. Austin is still my favorite city in the US. And now that you can get good bagels, I miss it more----even though I heard Katzís has closed.
