The New Riv is Born: Less Smoke and Free Music

In our interview of Riverside/New Riverside Cafe collective member Ken Logsdon for Radical Roots, he relates to us the great renovation of 1983. As he tells it, the process was fraught with misfortune and almost led to the Cafe closing. Thankfully, it instead caused a big upswing in patronage and gave the West Bank another 13 years of good food and music!
