BCK, 933 Studewood St., recently announced via its Instagram page that it would be ceasing operations Friday.

The Heights spot originally opened serving nostalgic foods with elevated twists, like Spaghetti-Os. Over the last three years the restaurant refocused its menu, eventually pivoting to specialty burgers.

In the Instagram post, CEO John Reed said that while this concept is closing, the company would soon be announcing a new concept. It will not be located in the same space.

Trailer park-themed bar coming to Washington

Drinks served out of Spam cans and a menu featuring Twinkies and Cheez Whiz will soon make an appearance on Washington Avenue.

Fat Boots Trailer Park Bar will open May 5 at 4218 Washington Ave., according to CultureMap.

The bar will feature singing and dancing staff who will encourage patrons to sing along and participate in drinking games.

While the Houston location is the first of the concept, there are already plans of expansion to Las Vegas and New Orleans.

New brews coming to area

Ovinnik Brewing has been in the works for over a year. It will soon take root at 7201 Wynnpark Dr. in the Timbergrove area.

The brewing outpost will add to the handful of craft beer options in the area. According to an Instagram post, the space was supposed to open in the first quarter of this year.

The brewery’s logo of a black cat with three eyes fits the name Ovinnik, which is a Slavic mythological creature that appears as a black cat that threatens to burn barns down if it’s not fed.
