42-year-old rapper and owner of the College Park Skyhawks, 2 Chainz, real name Tauheed Epps, is also a proud owner of the Escobar Restaurant and Tapas Lounge located in Castleberry Hill. The Escobar Restaurant along with many other businesses have remained closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, that has plagued our nation.
On last Monday Georgia’s Governor, Brian Kemp, gave the green light for restaurants, gyms, fitness centers, bowling alleys, tattoo parlors, barber shops, beauty salons, nail salons and massage parlors to reopen their doors on Friday, April 24, as long as owners adhere to the strict social distancing practices.
Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottom, and other political leaders warned that Georgia could see a rise in coronavirus deaths as a result of reopening businesses and urged residents to stay at home. “Just stay home. Listen to the scientists. There is nothing essential about going to a bowling alley or getting a manicure in the middle of a pandemic,” Bottoms said in an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America.
2 Chainz was supposed to re-open his Escobar Restaurant on Monday, on Twitter he posted, ‘Instead of opening Escobar Restaurant up today we decided to feed the homeless.’.
