Uproar at The Ritz?

Today I found many people at work lamenting that The Ritz has been taken over by new management and apparently had a pretty thorough house cleaning in order to cater to a new crowd. I never knew The Ritz. One of the reasons I love this blog is that many here are obviously Austin veterans and I learn a lot about our local culture which is rich and tasty. I’ve only been in Austin for three years, but I spent almost every school vacation here visiting my cousin. Though I am a total Austin enthusiast, I feel like a such a complete newbie when things like this come up.

Now I’ve never been much of one to hit “the scene” and do the clubs and bars thing, but I love that people feel this way about things. I love that there are so many places with a certain character that people know and identify (even if I don’t). I love that places just can’t anonymously change faces and expect people not to notice. I don’t personally know much about The Ritz, but I do know a lot of people who seem to think 6th street has lost one of it’s characters. I guess I’ll never know now.
