Grub Street is closing up shop a little early today because someone needs help lighting the grill. With that in mind, we’re wishing everyone a very safe and happy holiday weekend. In the meantime, you may as well start mentally preparing for all of the restaurants that are about to open uptown, downtown, and pretty much everywhere else. We’ll be back here bright and early on Tuesday morning with a bunch of news to report and, hopefully, a little bit of leftover sand still in our shoes.
