Back in October, The Vegan Spot on Sunset Blvd. put up an ad on Craigslist. It was a "quick sale." You could have your own vegan restaurant for $75,000.

Apparently, it's now closed, vegan blogger Quarrygirl finds. "Maybe i should have seen it coming. the last 3 times we tried to grab food, they were closed," she explained. "first, it was 'due to renovations,' unbeknownst to me. next, a few days later, it was closed 'due to the holidays.' now, it’s just closed due to being fucking closed. for days, the phone has been ringing through to an answering machine. for criminy’s sake, even yelpers have started to notice."
