Restaurant based on NFL team's racist mascot goes out of business in Virginia





A restaurant that was based on the Washington NFL team's racist imagery has gone out of business in Virginia.

Hail & Hog Kitchen and Tap barely lasted one football season, The Washington Post reported. The paper's restaurant critic described a sad sight when he checked out the burgundy-and-gold business a year ago.

"Freddy Krueger has a new name: loaded Redskin mashed potatoes," Tim Carman wrote in September 2016 of one particularly scary dish.

The company behind the restaurant declared bankruptcy earlier this year, The Post reported. All of its assets -- but hopefully not those potatoes -- are being auctioned by Reality Markets.
