Longtime Silver Lake sports spot Good Microbrew & Grill has been taken over by another sports bar, 33 Taps, Eater LA reports. Initially, Good’s owner, Ron Martinez, stated in an email that the temporary closure was due to a small office fire, and that the place would be up and running. However, a few weeks later, the papered windows of the closed restaurant told a different story. It announced that Hollywood sports bar 33 Taps is next in line. The future 33 Taps is located in the 3700 block of Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake.
