Cafe Dupri, super producer Jermaine Dupri's ode to Applebees (or was it Friday's?) closed recently. Turns out that his So So Def Omelet and Triple Platinum Pancakes sold about as many units as girlfriend Janet Jackson's latest release, Discipline. Making a bad situation even worse, all the employees were stiffed on their final paycheck. Reports are that JD's Mom, the "CEO" of the restaurant, said something like "maybe if they all worked harder, we wouldn't have had to close." Seriously.
On a personal note, I ate breakfast at Cafe Dupri on the morning of my wedding, making it my "final meal" as a single guy. The eggs were so so. They were not def, unfortunately.
