Just yesterday I was commenting to an acquaintance over at the community radio station KZFR (where Some Guy hosts a mean rad radio show) that the doors of many businesses seem to be closing up. She asked for examples and I didn’t really have many, save The Underground chain record/porn/bong store here in Chico, the french fry / fish ‘n’ chips spot downtown called Pommes Frites. There are a few more businesses on the verge of closing down though, and all these businesses cater to those with a little extra income – disposable, some may say.
Well, for those who love their food fried and served from a faux-Irish themed chain restaurant, we have some bad news for you. The Bennigan’s Parent Company has filed for bankruptcy, and most of its locations (save the few independent franchise stores) have closed their doors today. I tried checking their Web Site, but either its too overloaded with traffic from the closing announcement, or they stopped caring about that shit and began letting it crumble months ago.
