A large branch snapped from a tall tree on State Street near Haley in downtown Santa Barbara about 10 p.m. Tuesday night.
It hit between two outside patio dining and bar areas, including Whiskey Richards.
No one was hurt.
Santa Barbara Public works closed off traffic in one direction of the 400 block s where one lane was covered by the broken branch.
A city Forestry Division crew removed tree branch [Wednesday] morning.
