Holy Roller, the all-day biscuit and brunch spot at 590 Rio Grande St., Austin, closed Oct. 18. "I am so fortunate in this life to have been a part of something so spectacular, and I am eternally grateful for the friendships and partnerships that have carried me through this whirlwind," owner Callie Speer wrote in an Instagram post. Holy Roller had been open since 2017 in the West Sixth Street area of downtown Austin. Speer said Holy Roller will hold one last celebration Oct. 24-25 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. to "celebrate the community that we’ve been so lucky to be a part of these past few years." www.holyrolleraustin.com
