Attn: Georgetown Lovers of Guacamole, Tapas and Margaritas
4E received some sad news this week. Bandolero, an M Street Tapas hot spot, will be closing after years of legal problems.
Bandolero is known for their all day happy hours and quasi-affordable food options. It was an institution for many a Georgetown student.
Bandolero’s closing comes after the closure of both the restaurant Tackle Box and the popular bar Rhino. WHY ARE BAD THINGS HAPPENING TO GOOD INSTITUTIONS?! We are losing the Georgetown food staples. What are they going to replace it with, another inappropriately overexpensive store? Why do we need that? Food > Clothes.
As of now, the actual date of closure is unknown. Knowing M Street management, Bandolero will probably gone soon. Go get your fill while you still can.
Let’s raise a glass to the place we love. Taco Tuesdays will never be the same.
As a Guac enthusiast I just have to say, thank God we still have El Centro. (Knocks on wood.)
Thanks to the Washington City Paper for letting us know about this tragic event.
