Good-bye, Jilly’s!

Standard

Well, the big news in Toronto in the last few days (thanks to Mayor Rob Ford being in hiding rehab), is that the building housing Jilly’s strip club (mentioned a few posts ago) has been sold and Jilly’s will have to vacate the premises.

Strange, but welcome news, is that the new owner does not plan to turn the building into condos — although a Toronto Star editorial expressed doubts.

Per the earlier post, I haven’t been able to find out – yet – any stories behind these faces, but I will take another look into this in the coming days.
