Chocollazo gets in gear for Eat St. appearance


Don’t let old culinary acquaintances be forgotten at the end of the year. Remember that CIA Bakery Café (312 Pearl Pkwy, (210) 554-6464) closes to the public after Friday, December 20, and BIN 555 (555 W Bitters, (210) 496-0555) will ditch the wine and small plates concept for the oh-so-hot-right-now Asian fusion trend in 2014. BIN-heads can get their last fixes with the BIN Bye Bye Bye menu, full of favorites like seared scallops, Brussels sprouts and a ridiculous creamy crab dip gratin, available through December 31. And pour some out for Boneshakers, an independently-owned bar and, later, pizzeria, that focused on bringing Texas craft beer, artisanal pub grub and live music first to the South Side and later to the foot of the Hayes Street Bridge on the East Side. The Boneshakers crew announced earlier this month that they’d throw in the towel by year’s end, however, we hear they have another beer-based project in the works located off Brooklyn Avenue.
