How sweet it is! The Golden Triangle now has a new bar:Dulce Vida, which finally opened this week in the former home of the Cherokee Grill. Jason Tietjen, owner of the Dive Inn, bought the space, promising to turn it into the kind of neighborhood watering hole he'd created on South Broadway. Dulce Vida will hold its grand opening festivities in two weeks; in the meantime, we sent photographer Danielle Lirette to capture this look of the new place.
