Stadium Club Closes Over TruOrleans Tax Debt

Troubles continue for former TruOrleans owner James "Tru" Redding. The D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue announced today that it has seized Redding's strip joint/steakhouse Stadium Club in order to pay the more than $100,000 in sales and use taxes he owes for his now-closed H Street NE restaurant.

Just before midnight on July 19, a dispute erupted at TruOrleans on H Street NE over whether a large party was overcharged for its margarita-heavy tab, which totaled about $1,000. “Fuck this bill,” one patron in a teal tank top told a manager as the group started to leave, the manager says in a report […]

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

Young & Hungry has become Spiked TV or something like that. For the second week in a row, Spike Mendelsohn has dominated the blog, both with the news of his New York-style pizzeria, due to open today, and with the old, never-say-die story about his apartment eviction on Capitol Hill.
