End of an Era: Gasthaus zur Linde in Elgin closing 10/4

Another German/Austrian restaurant going away.

Many fond memories of drinking and dining there. Being stuffed to the gills and then having Fritz come around to chide you for not finishing your food. Joanna joining you with her bottle of home-made schlivovitz for a few rounds of after-dinner shots.

Fritz passed away several years ago, and I understand Joanna has been out sick lately and has decided to close the business on 10/04/06. Dining there might be a bit dicey without Joanna to supervise the cooking, but going there for a last round of drinks would certainly be appropriate.
