Last year, Graffiti Junktion's Thornton Park location moved down the street to the former Wildside Bar and Grille space. Now, we finally have a tenant for the vacant location at 900 E. Washington St.

Chef Greg Peters will return to his old haunt with a new permanent pop-up kitchen concept called Truck Stop Pop-up Kitchen, a space that food trucks, chefs, catering companies or private events can rent out for a short "pop-up" event.

Peters told local blog the The Bungalower that the new pop-up kitchen plans to open in July and will be open Thursday through Sunday.

Thornton Park has witnessed a bit of a sea change over the past year, with a string of bars and restaurants either closing or reformatting. In the past few months, chef Greg Richie's Asian gastropub Baoery shuttered, Mucho Tequila and Tacos is retooling into a New Orleans concept, and longtime neighborhood watering hole Burton's Bar was closed and then purchased by new owners.
