Perhaps the apocalypse is arriving this weekend after all. Cool Hand Luc, the cheery ice cream parlour that Luc Essiambre opened last summer, is closing tomorrow. According to a post on the store’s Facebook timeline, the building that houses the shop at 545 King Street West has been sold to a new owner, who has other plans for the space. Essiambre is currently looking for a new location in the neighbourhood, but needs to clear out his stock asap—which means that scoops are now selling for $1. [Facebook]
