There Were Rumors That a New Brewery Was Coming to the East Bank

One very popular rumor was that there was going to be a new brewery coming to the East Bank and we were all left wondering how much more alcohol our little downtown could take. I had heard that that building was being converted into an Airbnb and people could stay right there in the East Bank District. How cool would that be?

The New Restaurant Will Have a Huge Bar, Both Indoors and Outdoors.

I stopped by and saw there were people working on the building and I asked if I could check it out. I met Miguel who is one of the proud new owners of El Patio, a Mexican restaurant. The bar and grill will have a huge patio so the name "El Patio" is fitting.

This is Not the First El Patio in Shreveport-Bossier.

If the name sounds familiar to you it's because you've probably noticed one or two around town.

This is the first Mexican Restaurant to Set Up Shop in the East Bank District.

Will the Mexican restaurant thrive like all the restaurants have been thriving? Is a Mexican restaurant what we needed in downtown Bossier?
