SAN ANTONIO -- Taco Land, once famous for its live music, large oak tree, colorful artwork, and charismatic owner Ramiro "Ram" Ayala will soon reopen.
Taco Land was left deserted after the murders of Ayala and doorman Doug Morgan back in 2005.
Thursday City Council approved a lease to allow Taco Land developers to rent out the land adjacent to the venue.
"We'll have a path that actually connects to the River Walk itself," said David Adelman, a partner in the Taco Land ownership group.
Adelman said people will be able to dine, drink and enjoy live acoustic music. Adelman went on to say the ownership group is dedicated to preserving the Taco Land legacy.
"We're literally saving every brick and every stone that we've pulled out of here," said Adelman.
Taco Land is expected to open this spring, most likely in March.
