Ish on hiatus... Fire at 37 King St.
Friday August 24th, 2012
We're saddened to say that Ish and Chips has sustained heavy damage and will be closed for the unforeseeable future due to a major fire in our building.
We would like to say a big thank you to all of our amazing fans and patrons of our little restaurant for all the wonderful experiences past and present support in our difficult time. We hope we can bounce back and reopen sooner than later, the last 2 years of being in the Uptown have been an absolute blast. Coincidentally, the day of the fire we were also nominated for Best Fish & Chips in the Kitchener Record's Reader Select Awards... for that, we thank you as well.
If anyone would like to be in touch with us or help us out in any way, please call our cell phone; 1-647-834-3123
Or e-mail us at:
Thank you everyone once again, your support means a lot to us!
Tinnitus Awareness Week
Sunday May 13th-19th, 2012
Today marks the first day of Tinnitus Awareness Week. Tinnitus is a condition where a person hears a buzzing or ringing sound that no one else can. It lasts forever, it is non-stop, and can be as loud as a jet and does not always occur at the hands of exposure to loud music.
It affects more than 250 million people worldwide. The Ish & Chips team is no stranger to this, as 4 of our staff members have this, including both owners.
There is no cure for this. But, lets do our part and raise awareness and help organizations like the American Tinnitus Association and find a cure to help those affected by it to know what silence sounds like.
For more information and ways to spread awareness, visit The American Tinnitus Association's website:
