COMING SOON 6 Nashville hot chicken restaurant Tumble 22 will add a third location in the Austin area in July at 2304 Lake Austin Boulevard, formerly the site of Magnolia Cafe.

Second St., Austin. 512-481-9400. www.austinjava.com C LOSINGS 9 Plush owner Ryan Cunningham an- nounced May 23 that the club at 617 Red River Street, which had been open since 2000, has closed permanently. “I want to personally thank all of you for your time, love, and everything else you’ve done to help keep us open over the past 20 years,” Cunningham wrote in a Facebook post. 512-478-0099. www.plushatx.com 10 Barracuda, a music venue located at 611 E. Seventh St., Austin, announced its permanent closure on June 10. In May, Austin City Council members said they would look into purchasing existing music venues to control costs for the music and arts communities. Without interven- tion, Red River Merchants Association executive director Cody Cowan said the COVID-19 pandemic would be the “nail in the coffin” for live music venues in Austin. www.barracudaaustin.com
