Openings & Closings: Pepper Jacks the Old Cabo Space and We Wrap Up May

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
