If you've driven past and noticed that Palomino in Bay View is dark, your eyes have not deceived you. But, the closure is just temporary, says Valeri Lucks, co-owner of the bar and restaurant.

A sign on the door indicates that Palomino will be closed for a few days this week, reopening at 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 10.

"We are expanding the kitchen to accommodate our bakery that has outgrown itself at Honeypie," says Lucks of the closure.

The Honeypie bakery, which has been expanding its offerings and ramping up production to serve wholesale clients, has recently added items including New York-style bagels to its repertoire, which also includes biscuits, pies and other baked goods.
