Sep 17, 2020

Hey friends! Sleeping better in this lovely cooler weather? 🍁🍂🍁 We hope so, because we’re back with another episode of the 4 AM Report. 🌟💫🌟 

Today, let’s chat about what’s keeping US up at night – this staggering statistic from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce: 

Sixty percent of Canada’s restaurants could close by November due to the economic effects of 🦠🦠 Covid-19 🦠🦠!! 

This 🍽😭🍽 culinary devastation 🍽😭🍽 is top of mind for this week’s guest, Stephanie Dickison. 

Founder of Toronto Restaurants, she’s a food writer, journalist and an advocate for the Canadian restaurant industry. 

We talk: 

🍱 Supporting your local eateries.

🥙 The icky side of delivery apps.

🥩 Restaurant wage inequality and the “to tip or not to tip” dilemma of takeout.

🍔 And more!

Folks, we simply CAN’T lose upwards of 60% of our fabulous restaurants! Because once they’re gone, they won’t be back.

Have a listen. And support local!!
