My brother-in-law lives in Austin and I remember many years ago when we were there with him we went to Threadgill’s and he told me the history of it and Janis.
I do not know if it is still there but he said,
“Come here a minute because I have to show you something …”
In one of the backrooms was a portrait and there was a sheet over it. He picked it up and it was a portrait of Janis in a pretty revealing see-through top – it was just beautiful.
I imagine the picture was covered up at the time because it was being advertised just like home cooking in a family restaurant.
I have no idea where it is now in the restaurant or even if it’s still there. Great food by the way!!!
