Is it bad to lay some Shutter down so early on a Monday morning? Cheer up: We'll have a big helping of Dish openings later today. Notice a closure in your hood? We're all ears.
This is unfortunate for Harball Productions: According to the Los angeles Downtown News, Trifecta—which we've been wondering about for weeks---has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and is scheduled for a hearing to file for Chapter 7 (liquidation). After unveiling a menu with a $15 hot dog, the "sports lounge" opened briefly to the public but then closed for private events only. Partner Charlie Lew told us the original delays were due to a water pipe breaking, which must be the new code for "no one wants to eat $15 hot dogs."
