Hi-Tops Closes

That’s right folks, the wonderfully planned area near the stadiums seems to have trouble supporting sports bars. Sixty Five employees were let go on Sunday.

The restaurant’s owner, Hi-Tops Pittsburgh USA LP, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in March. Rothstein said high rent and pressure from a lender were other major factors in the business’s problems. The business made an unsuccessful attempt recently to buy its building.

The owners are partly blaming the fact that the Pirates suck– perhaps the problem is they haven’t sucked down enough tax money?
