This morning a plea for $50,000 from Cardinal Rule (5 Roncesvalles Ave. at Queen St. W.) came up on fundraising site indiegogo. It turns out their basement flooded and cost the restaurant its walk-in freezer. They will be closing for a week to have it replaced.
Those who help with the fundraising efforts (here’s how the money will be spent) will enjoy a variety of perks ranging from high fives to two free meals a month for an entire year. Co-owner Marta Kusel has said this Sunday’s brunch will be the last meal served until they re-open on the 16th.—Rebecca Fleming
