you're referring to a spray-painted piece by none other than roky erickson (of roky erickson and the 13th floor elevators), long-time austin resident (may be with us, don't know). the art didn't make it, sadly...but quack's is alive and well on 43rd and duval, across from one of the 2 remaining fresh plus marts (the other on west lynn and 12th), and caddy-corner to mother's, which still serves a tasty veggie burger. you could opt for the fries at hyde park bar and grill, but i'll go with a mother's/quack's combo any day...and i know you've picked up the latest chron, so check out the restaurant poll....all the best, tjm
