Man I miss Red’s Scoot Inn. It’s new incarnation as Scoot Inn just doesn’t measure up.
The old Mexican icehouses of East Austin are vanishing with moneyed white folks snapping up the old school beer joints, putting Iggy Pop on the jukeboxes and switching out the watery lagers for microbrews.
I miss bartendress Vera standing behind the bar with the placard emblazoned “If mama ain’t happy ain’t nobody happy” over her head-watchful of the drinkers and attending to our needs.
