Houston Blurker: Does Rathskeller’s Still Exist?

Dear Mr. Oliveria:

37 years ago last Wednesday, my wife and I celebrated heading out of Spokane after being married with a double pepperoni and black olive pizza and a pitcher of dark beer at Rathskeller's after scoring the last motel room in Coeur d'Alene as evidenced by a couple coming in from the east side right after we took the "suite" who said they had no luck in finding one all the way in. I went searching for Rathskeller's on the 'net and your blog came up. Do you know if it still exists? We toy with the notion of driving up there sometime from Houston to have another pizza and beer to see if the magic is still there or if it's just the memory of being young.

Paul S. Ziegler
Houston, Texas.

Question: Can someone provide a rundown re: what happened to the Rathskeller?
