Paisan’s, by Any Other Address …

We enjoyed the Traditions column about Paisan’s [Winter 2012]. I graduated from Madison West High School in 1960, and during my high school years, we frequented Paisan’s at its location on University Avenue. A special treat back then was the Champale served in red plastic cocktail glasses. They moved into the basement of Portabella while University Square was being built, then moved back to University Square. The new location on West Wilson is beautiful and retains all the old charm of the former locations.
