The various sports teams at the University of Regina are getting some unexpected help from a Regina restaurant owner.
Rock Creek Tap and Grill has come up with a “Cougar Burger”, a hamburger topped with sweetened chipotle beer sauce, bacon, cheese, lettuce and tomato.
One dollar from each sale will go to Cougar Athletics to help the teams offset costs when it comes to things like uniform and travel.
Owner Stu Rathwell says he used to be a University athlete, and he knows it isn’t easy for a variety of reasons. He is hoping this will help the different teams out, and he is hoping others in the Regina business community, especially those who have ties to Cougar Athletics will do something similar.
The hamburger will be sold until the end of May at the restaurant’s two Regina outlets.
