One of the last recognizable vestiges of the old Abbot-Kinney, Glencrest Bar-B-Que is endangered in following the $2.2 million sale of the building that houses it. Owned by Venice local Chris Featherstone for nearly 25 years, a recent KCET video found him lamenting the tremendous loss of Black and Latino-owned businesses on the street in the last decade and the increasing difficulty for locals to operate here. Yo! Venice! asks an employee about the business’ chances for survival only to hear, “it doesn’t look good.” [Yo! Venice!]
