Temple Restaurant in Minneapolis has closed, according to WCCO TV. Most of you have never heard of it because if you had, the theory goes, it wouldn’t be closed.
The closing is being blamed on higher food costs, the lack of other eateries, and the lousy economy.
Isn’t it possible, though, that if you have to resort to offering the opportunities for customers to eat sushi off naked women, that maybe there’s another problem?
