So Many Roads Brewery, the psychedelic rock-themed venue formerly owned by Jay Bianchi, had agreed to close its doors for the month of November after being hit with an array of legal and code violations. While Sancho's Broken Arrow shuttered for good for similar violations and is facing a public-nuisance hearing on December 6, So Many Roads reopened on December 1 with a concert featuring the Cosmic Charlies.
This week also brought confirmation of the closure of Northside staple Burrito Giant. Its owners, Miguel and Trinidad Vigil, have opted for retirement, though longtime friend Marilyn Manchego-Baca may bring back the name for a food truck she's hoping to launch in the spring.
