Sentimental Sunday: Jaime's Spanish Village, Austin, Texas

In an earlier post, I mentioned that my parents drove to Austin, Texas, from Houston on their wedding night (September 11, 1954) before heading on to Colorado.  They didn't remember what hotel they stayed at, but they did remember where they ate:

So when we had a 50th wedding anniversary party for my parents in 2004, we (immediate family) decided to eat at Jaime's the night before:

Unfortunately, Jaime's has since closed after 79 years (on July 30, 2010), and another restaurant (Pelon's) has taken its place, keeping some of the old features of Jaime's.
