Also, news about the former Coa Mexican Eatery & Tequileria at Roosevelt Way Northeast and Northeast 80th Street.

Crews are hard at work on it now, siting an outside place to put the barbecue smoker – 20-feet of it, we’re told.

Also that it will be Texas-style BBQ. (We’re from Texas….)

Opening date set for late August.
