Two Popular Local Businesses Close

Jan 7, 2020


A Dublin restaurant has closed permanently after operating for more than 20 years. 

Brazenhead owner Mike Tibbets hasn't said why he closed the facility on December 29. It first opened in 1998. And Laughlin's Bakery on East 2nd Avenue closed for good on Sunday. Operators blame slow sales over the last three years, caused in part by construction in the Short North. The bakery opened in 2014 following a Kickstarter campaign.
