The waiting is the hardest part.
Because sometimes around EOW, we like to take a little poetic license with things, here is the past week's restaurant news presented in some merry iambic pentameter:

Though downtown's lost a Mexican rest'rant,
Fear not because another soon will haunt
The Cabo space with patio sublime:
Pepper Jacks will open there in time

More Mexican is moving in
On already-crowded Navigation;
Next to Ninfa's soon will be
El Tiempo -- its old family

And though it's been too many a warm week
Without the welcome salve of beers and freaks
Moon Tower's finally making concrete plans
To reopen with a vengeance for its fans

We've bid adieu to Dharma Cafe
Sad farewells and come-what-mays
But on its horizon has appeared
A Belgian cafe with excellent beers

And finally after hopes and dreams
Of eating in front of the big screen
Inner Loopers will go gung-ho
In Midtown: Remember the Alamo

On the next page, catch up on what you missed in this month's openings and closings (sorry, no poems there).
