Mike's Soul Food (Santa Cruz) closes again for good...

Yes, it's true and kind of shocking. Nathan P. and I were wondering what was going on w/ Mike's since we each had noticed that it was closed during normal business hours recently. Not a good sign and very abrupt given that Mike had just re-opened not too long ago. I knew it couldn't have been due to lack of business...

I just learned from a blurb in the local Good Times paper that Mike has shut down for good reportedly due to recurrent back problems. I guess that led to his prior closure and that he has decided to hang up his tongs to the public for good...We had only eaten there twice since the re-opening and I wasn't that crazy about the food but liked the vibe and Mike and hoped to slowly work my way through the menu. Am sorry to see it closed. There was someone from over the hill who seemed excited about revisiting Mike's, so just a heads up.

Will be interesting to see what opens there next...maybe something on my wish list.
