A caveat before TKC Reader reactionaries get started . . . Ça Va is too pricey and high class for this scumbag blog and most of the sportos, motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies and dickheads who read every day so let's not take this story too personally. Westport remains dominated by dive bars and overpriced, middle-class bromidic, fare. This joint is a rare classy respite and there's nothing inherently wrong with trying to spruce up a part of midtown that's famous for grown women peeing on the sidewalk.
Nevertheless, challenging the politics of the "safe space" is perfectly acceptable whilst keeping in mind that this very smart biz lady also proves herself incredibly brave by sharing a very personal story and offering insight into rough & tumble service industry culture that must undergo change like everything else.
