San Angelo’s Angry Cactus hosts open house Friday and Saturday

San Angelo’s Angry Cactus, 1 W. Concho Ave., is hosting an open house at 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Select appetizers, beer and wine will be available at the event, as well as tours of the new eatery. There will also be live music by Stephen Newberry and Charles Reyes.

After a long wait, the Angry Cactus statue that stirred controversy was installed in October in its permanent spot at Tim Condon’s restaurant that bears the same name. A debate over the redesign of the restaurant’s sculpture/sign caused a few delays to the project’s kickoff.

The restaurant’s official grand opening is scheduled for Dec. 5.
