Yesterday, the interwebs were a tangle of Luda stories, from our report noting his Chicken-n-Beer concept among the 150 sites approved for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to Eater National's sweet video post of one of the "inspiring" album's songs. As EN pointed out via The Atlanta Journal-Constitution article, Ludacris is closing Straits in midtown so he can focus on the airport venture. The AJC also offered a "celeb hangout" recap of the restaurant's glory days. Meanwhile, over at Creative Loafing, dining editor and restaurant critic Besha Rodell reported on Luda's mayoral connections that might have led to the rapper/restaurateur's "TALKING ABOUT THE BUSIEST AIRPORT ON THE PLANET!! THIS IS HISTORY!!"
In other closing news this week, What Now, Atlanta reports that O'Terrill's Irish Pub is closing in midtown after seven years and The Grape has closed at Vinings Jubilee.
