Red Room Closed

Anyone know what happened to the Red Room? The PPG said they closed.

      I found this out yesterday and I am really upset. The main reason being we bought a substantial gift certificate the week before Christmas for a family member and it is now worthless. I loved this restaurant and supported it from the beginning. They should have said they don't sell gift certificates if they had any idea (which they should have) they may be in financial trouble. Totally unacceptable.

        If the first comment is correct, then that really was low to have sold you the gift.

        I wonder if another restaurant might honor it. Maybe some restauranteur who's reading this right now? (C'mon, we know you're out there!)
