Hat Creek on Burnet....?
Drove by this morning, and they were in the process of taking down the giant hat sign....Closing? Made to change their sign since it was the former Arby's sign? Anyone know the scoop?
I dropped in this morning to find out - the sign is down. I always liked the Arby's/Hat Creek transition, but apparently the sign had to come down because of Arby's lawyers. . Hat Creek is doing a major expansion at that site - the whole shop is gutted and they are expanding over the sidewalk.. I heard, (separately) that they were applying for a liquor license. The guy said that the sign issue "it's no skin off my nose." I think it should be a rule to have neon signs on the new South Austin strip that is Burnet. Hopefully they will put one in.
Closed for remodeling (looked too much like Arby's is my guess). Their 3 other locations still open.
Speaking of which, Arby's just started selling their Arby Sauce and Horsey Sauce in 11.5oz bottles for $2.50/each. Giddyup! Too bad I just bought a 16oz bottle of Woebers Horseradish Sauce for $2.29 - even better.
