The Necessary History
I’m gearing up to write an essay about another underground restaurant experience and in an attempt to re-read the history, I found these old blog posts. These links will be posted again when the essay is ready, but for now, here they are:
An introduction to the woman of the hour, Viva, can be found in this old blog post. (I’ve slightly modified the spelling of her name, but really – she’s just too vibrant and full a person to even attempt a made up name.) More tales are told here: “The Artist’s Statement”, “Perspective” and “Goodbye”.
For fun, personal narrative blog posts and to get a sense of the history of this event, read about Shady’s Cafe Part 1, Shady’s Cafe Part 2, and Shady’s Cafe Part 3 as well.
