The Week Ahead….and Goodbye to Hello Cupcake – and Kraze Burger?

by Larry Janezich

Alia Khan posts on Newhilleast that the owner of Hello Cupcake is pulling the plug on the Barracks Row shop because “the numbers weren’t working out for them.”  The shop opened in May of 2011.  On Twitter, ANC6b Commissioner Phil Peisch, responding to a query from JD Land,  speculates that Kraze Burger on Barracks Row is going out of business. The restaurant’s door features a “Closed Until Further Notice” sign.  The restaurant opened its doors October 17, 2013.

    I’m sorry to hear that the numbers didn’t work out for Hello Cupcake and Kraze. I would be interested in learning what kind of retail options the neighborhood thinks would do well in those locations.
