UPDATE (OCT 23): It now comes to us from Edward Stewart's blog that somebody in charge of the Tower Theatre building has painted over Josh Wigger's mural on the side of Palomino's. Just like that. No disscussion, it's gone. Even if they had the legal right to do this, it's pretty bad mojo to be doing that, without disscussion, to a Tower District landmark.
ORIGINAL POST (OCT 16): Went to have some dinner at Palomino's in the Tower District this weekend. Couldn't get a table though ... because the place was closed. At 7:00. On a Saturday night.
Called Palomino's earlier in the day and the phone line has been disconnected. Maybe they did a closed-because-we're-dead-when-the-fair-is-in-town thing. But there was no signage stating this or anything else.
And this POSSIBLE closing on the heels of their next door neighbor calling it a day. Plus there's still nothing open in the old Daily Planet space. Can't be easy paying the rent on those Tower Theatre building spaces.
