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).
