PALO ALTO HOBEE'S CLOSING NEXT WEEK ... After 28 years of serving its tall, streusel-topped, blueberry coffeecake, the branch of Hobee's restaurant in Town & Country Village in Palo Alto will close Jan. 6. The upscale burger joint Gott's Roadside is set to replace it. Ed Fike, president of Hobee's, said the management at T&C attempted to work with him to get Hobee's to stay put by upgrading the space. "We were given the option to stay, but with that came certain contingencies. Unfortunately, those contingencies added up to well beyond what we could afford," Fike said. He added that he has tried to place most of his employees at the eight other Hobee's restaurants in the Bay Area. There will still be a Hobee's remaining in Palo Alto, at 4224 El Camino Real.
