That Toronto Restaurant You Can Buy for $150? Ya, the Raffle is Now ‘On Hold’…

Some things are just too good to be true.

An umbrella that can catches rain water and turns it into drinkable water for instance. Oh, and the ability to raffle your restaurant off for $150 a ticket.

Here’s our question, is that ‘issue’ impacting her ability to receive payments a technical one (as in, Eventbrite was overwhelmed and crashed) or is it a legal one (as in, you can’t actually do this ’cause your landlord found out and was like, ‘the f*ck?’).

Only time will tell, but giving back full refunds two days after you’ve launched suggests this might be the last you’ll be hearing of your gastropub dream.

As for us, we’re going to work on our amazing umbrella idea…you know, for a rainy day.
