    Chrissie Hynde Closes Vegetarian Restaurant - She cited the economic downturn as the reason

    The Pretenders' singer/guitarist and staunch animal rights supporter Chrissie Hynde has been forced to close her vegetarian restaurant. According to The Associated Press, Hynde had to close shop due to the economic downturn. The eatery was located in her Akron, Ohio hometown.

    Hynde posted a note on the VegiTerranean restaurant website on Sunday, saying that she and the staff had tried to keep the restaurant open but that the economic climate made it impossible. The restaurant was open for four years.

    What a bum out. I'm a vegetarian and I am sure that it was a terrific joint. Perhaps if the economy experiences an uptick, Hynde will reopen it! It sucks when a cool eatery such as this has to close its doors.

    Have you ever eaten at a veggie-friendly restaurant?
