Another Pinkberry melts away

pinkberry-abbot-kinney.jpgSince we seem to be on the Pinkberry closure beat now, let it be noted that the Abbot Kinney outpost of the empire — mildly controversial when it opened two Julys ago — shuts down on May 3. Separate from the great Pinkberry contraction of 2010, times are tough for Westside eateries. The Kay 'n Dave's outpost in Rancho Park is closing, and a few blocks west on Pico a sign in the window at the venerable Anna's indicates big changes are coming.
