Henry's Taco's to give employees a break

Business at Henry's Taco's in Studio City has skyrocketed since the news broke last weekend that the 51-year-old gringo taco stand would close this month. Owner Janis Hood had announced a few days ago that her employees would open for business on Sundays until the end. But she now says via Facebook that the onslaught has been too much and that they have to close to take a breather this coming Monday.

Because of your overwhelming support, we must CLOSE on MONDAY, 12/17 to regroup! Please understand that we are only five people with very limited space. My employees are working very long hours and they need to eat and sleep like everyone else, including me! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND UNDERSTANDING!

This will disappoint an upstart group that calls itself Occupy Tujunga and which planned to descend on Henry's to show its support on Monday. Come on Tuesday, Hood asks them. The name comes from the Henry's location at the corner of Moorpark Street and Tujunga Avenue.
