Japan Association curse strikes again: Happy Home Buffet on McKnight Road to close for good, be replaced by Ocean Treasures Cajun Seafood and Bar.



McKnight Road's Happy Home Buffet, which recently posted news of a temporary closure on its door, will close for good and be replaced by Ocean Treasures Cajun Seafood and Bar. The seafood place has another location in Monroeville.

I frequently joke that the Japan Association of Greater Pittsburgh has this effect on businesses that host its annual New Years party. In recent years Golden Palace in Robinson, Tokyo Sushi Buffet, Misaki, and Old Town Buffet have all closed shortly after hosting the Japan Association's event. Hopefully they'll choose the Oakland McDonald's next year.
