Ed Pottinger of the Real Jerk
"What we were seeking was a temporary injunction to cover a 10-day period," says the Jerk's obviously elated Ed Pottinger.
"What we got was a temporary injunction that keeps us here till at least the end of February and, if nothing is resolved by the first of March, then I would have to pay the difference in rent between what the new renter was going to pay and what I've been paying."
Still, the Jerk's days kitty-corner to Jilly's are numbered. Anything more concrete on where you'll be moving?
"I've been contacted by several BIAs who'd like me to move into their neighbourhood," continues Pottinger. "They really want us at Pape and Gerrard."
Rumour has it a chain of Irish pubs is eye-balling the lucrative Queen and Broadview location.
"They told me they needed to be open for St. Patrick's Day," laughs Pottinger. "Excuse me, this is black history month!"
