Producer Charlie Corwin was an investor in Socialista and explains why the project failed so quickly, saying that Giuseppe Cipriani "ended up making a deal with the government.That included him paying a large fine, and as part of that fine he taxed all of his restaurants—including Socialista." Unfortunately the restaurant was never successful enough to cover those costs, so the place went under. That, and the bartender with Hepatitis A. But Corwin says he still loves Armin Amiri and would love to invest with him again. [BlackBook]
