Kate's Joint in the East Village Needs Rescuing

There's a campaign afoot to save Kate's Joint, a vegetarian restaurant in the East Village that has been open since 1996. Its owner, Kate Halpern, is in a bit of a pickle: She owes the building's landlord a sizable amount of back rent and might have to shut the restaurant down. But she still has grand plans for the place, which include turning part of it into a bakery that sells vegan and gluten-free treats.

Kate's Joint's Indiegogo campaign, which we heard about thanks to EV Grieve, is hoping to raise $30,000 for back rent. There are all sorts of prizes for different donation levels, including cooking classes, catering, and a dinner for two. So far, people have donated $905.
