Of course the big news over the weekend is that downtown Bend’s Typhoon! Thai restaurant closed—and in fact all five of their locations are closed. It had been rumored that something like this was happening, and news hit over the weekend on Twitter first (I believe Shannon twittered it first that we saw). KTVZ followed up with a detailed story on the closing(s), which cited the death of its co-founder last year and a state labor investigation against the restaurant for alleged civil rights violations.
And the Bulletin’s article yesterday further answered another question I was wondering about: Bo Restobar, the other restaurant run by Typhoon’s owner Bo Kline, is also closed—and the restaurant was just around the corner from Typhoon, also in the Franklin Crossing building.
