Openings & Closings: Lucky Burger Says Goodbye After 40 Years & Siphon Coffee Finally Opens

Swamplot broke the news this week that Lucky Burger at 1601 Richmond Avenue will close on Saturday, May 31. Now that the burger joint's lease is up, the restaurant will turn off the lights after 40 years of operation. But, if you want to take a piece of the restaurant home with you, especially if it was a memorable spot to grab a cheeseburger, then you can buy some of the tables, chairs, cookware and equipment, if items are still available.

CultureMap Houston's Eric Sandler reports that The State Bar & Lounge at 909 Texas will hold its last service on Saturday, May 31. A manager told Sandler that the bar is closing, but did not reveal the reason.

The Cafe Express at 3200 Kirby also closed on Thursday, May 29. Cafe Express released a flyer explaining that the Kirby location closed "due to site development." This Cafe Express has been serving customers since 1987, but that has all come to an end. Fortunately there are other locations around town for you to get your sandwich, salad and burger fixes.
