The End of an Era

This is the Cactus Cafe.

This article confirms the horrible news I heard on KUT radio this afternoon.

The Cactus Cafe is closing, due to budget cuts on the part of the University of Texas. The Cactus Cafe, where I heard Nanci Griffith 30 years ago, will be no more. The Cactus Cafe, where I walked around with Mntnwmn last year. To save the university $122K.

This really sucks.


  1. Perhaps the football coach could donate a weeks salary to save it...just saying...

  2. But, Marsha...this is Texas! Everyone knows that football is the only thing that matters at UT!
