A Boston Pizza might replace The Brunswick House

The Ye Olde Brunswick House's days are numbered. And, it looks like a Boston Pizza might replace this storied Annex-area watering hole.

According to the Harbord Village Residents' Association (HVRA) website, the landlords at 481 Bloor Street West have terminated The Brunny's lease. As of December 31, as the CBC notes, the bar will be running on a month-to-month basis.

The HRVA says that Canadian chain Boston Pizza is interested in the ground floor space. However, it would want a patio if it were to move in. While nothing is confirmed yet, neighbourhood residents are invited to a public meeting on Monday to discuss the changes that might be coming to the corner of Bloor and Brunswick.

Despite The Brunny's reputation as Toronto's grungiest student bar, many of us look back fondly on our nights there. Redditor dnhmltn posted a photo of the HRVA notice and has since generated a lively discussion. Many have also taken to Twitter to voice their concerns about The Brunny's impending demise.
