*After first saying they were going to re-open their ATL restaurants on Monday for dine-in service, rapper 2 Chainz and business partner/co-owner Snoop Dillard have now gone in reverse.

“After careful consideration, we are not going to open our restaurants on Monday. It has not officially been decided when we will start having dine-in service,” Dillard told TMZ

It sounds to us like somebody came to their senses and made the right move.

Here’s what was reported earlier …

2 Chainz is going to take advantage of Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s order to lift the coronavirus shutdown and re-open his Atlanta restaurants on Monday.

The ATL rapper’s Escobar Restaurant & Tapas has two locations and were only doing take-out service during Georgia’s shutdown, but plan to reopen for full dine-in service, but with extra precautions.

Here’s what the plan is.  The staff will have their temperatures checked before shifts, employees must wear gloves, cooks must wear masks, and patrons will be given paper menus, 2 Chainz’s business partner Snoop Dillard told TMZ Friday morning.

On top of that, any symptomatic employees must self-quarantine for 14 days before returning back to work.

2 Chains’ controversial move to reopen comes as Georgia politicians continue to battle over whether reopening its economy is the responsible thing to do.

While Gov. Kemp is itchin’ to get businesses to reopen, some of the state’s mayors including Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is not in agreement and is asking people to stay home.

As far a 2 Chainz’ restaurants are concerned, the shutdown resulted in having to furlough 80% of the staff. Revenue reportedly dropped 95% during the shutdown.

Page Six reports that the plan is to bring back 80 employees to get things going again with sit-down service and continued take-out.

They also plan on continuing to have live DJ sets as well.
