The Flying Beaver pub calls it quits

The Flying Beaver has been grounded. Closed on account of an electrical fire since February, the business will shutter permanently according to a Facebook post from the owners.

"While it appeared at first that [fire damage] could be remedied quickly, that was not the case," the note reads. "Mostly, the delay was caused due to extensive issues at the property that were not caused by or part of the fire. Nor were they our responsibility to remedy... As we've been closed for over four months now, we've decided it's time to move on."

The Cabbagetown spot will be missed for its reliable brunch and commitment to live entertainment (some of which was produced by co-owner Maggie). The closure has also displaced Psychic Brunch in Toronto, which called the pub home. I suspect, however, that the folks running this event knew about the impending closure all along.
