Chop and Wok Damaged By Fire Over the Weekend

The buzz over the weekend was that Chop and Wok, the cheeky rock 'n roll-themed Chinese restaurant in North Scottsdale, burned down.

Turns out, there was a fire over the weekend, but the place is still standing -- there was no structural damage, one of the employees tells me. A small fire that got into the hood was bad enough to shut down the restaurant portion of the operation.

However, the bar was unaffected, and it's still open for business. "Hair metal is still playing over the speakers," says a source.
