ady gilLooks like Ady Gil may have found his next venture.

A major benefactor to the Sea Shepherd (his cash helped purchase the recently sunk ship bearing his name), Gil told LAist that his lawyer has contacted the city of Santa Monica about possibly leasing the space formerly occupied by the disgraced sushi restaurant “The Hump”. This is the same eatery that the producers of The Cove busted in an undercover sting operation for illegally serving whale meat.

If successful, Gil says he would open his own restaurant — but this time, the nosh would be 100% vegan.

We’ll keep you updated on if Gil gets the rights to lease the space. We’re pretty sure the city of Santa Monica would love to see this fiasco have a happy ending.

    So the sleazy pimp is going to open a restaurant to get more attention. What a creep.

    It’s kind of hard to sink a restaurant but with Ady’s luck I’m sure he’ll figure out a way to do it.

    When the Canadian Coast Guard seized the Farley Mowat from the Sea Shepherds I always expect a Japanese restaurant chain to buy it. Imagine what kind of sushi joint it would have made.
