Hot Off the Street, Hot Stix Closure Update

According to unnamed sources, the owner/manager of Hot Stix at Lindbergh skipped town and left his employees no notice, nor did he pay them for hours prior to the abrupt closure. Many employees were said to have taken flat screen TVs and liquor from the restaurant when it became apparent they were not going to receive their paychecks. Outdoor patio furniture has also disappeared from the restaurant, presumably by angered employees looking to recoup something in lieu of no payment. When Repeat Atlanta stopped by earlier this week, much of the alcohol was gone from the bar and it was evident that at least two flat panel TVs were taken from walls and the patio furniture was missing. Repeat Atlanta!

Any info on this surprise closure? Leave a comment to share your thoughts.

Atlanta's restaurant scene is volatile to say the least.

Hot Stix was not as good as Chow Baby, but it's surprising that Hot Stix was a huge failure and Chow Baby continues to do very well.

You know it's not surprising given the ownership. Cheap is not the word.
