    • Taco Punk, the NuLu restaurant Mexican restaurant that launched a Kickstarter campaign, did not reach its $20,000 fundraising goal. No word on what’s next for the restaurant. (Eater Louisville)

    Well, color me surprised.

    The Vint Coffee location I often visit at 516 W. Main Street next to Humana HQ has turned into a Heine Brothers’ coffeehouse. Ditto at the Vint location at 462 S. Fourth Street.

    I was two seconds from being super confused until I remembered that this replacement had been in the works for months.

    Heine and Vint announced that they were merging back in November 2011. As of Monday, the two downtown Vint locations carry the Heine Brothers’ name, Insider Louisville reports. The Frankfort Avenue Vint will stay the same.

    To mark the occasion, the downtown Heine Brothers’ locations will offer buy one, get one free coffee on Wednesday, Jan. 9. I’ll drink to that.
