My field agent in Stevenson Ranch sent me an article from the local paper reporting that the BBQ Club in Santa Clarita closed its doors on December 17. According to the owner he could not sustain enough business, he is quoted as saying "With a proliferation of large chain restaurants in the Valley, it's difficult for a place like the BBQ Club to make it."
'hounds may recall some positive reports about th BBQ Club on this board, where the 'Q was said to be quite tasty and there was live entertainment. I never made it out there myself to find out.
The article does also report that the owner said he will be opening a new BBQ Club in downtown L.A. Only 1,100 square feet and 20 tables, and no entertainment.
It might be prudent for 'hounds who work or frequent downtown L.A. to check out this joint when it opens, supposedly end of this month or early February. No specific location was cited.
