Kansas City Hipsters Cancel Port Fonda Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

Working in Westport has always required coping with a mix of substance abuse problems, soul crushing meat market "dating" life and the threat of random violence.

Accordingly, complaints about working conditions shouldn't really come as a surprise.

Nevertheless, here's the latest trendy institution that must cope with the fickle support of hipsters. 

Also, it's interesting to watch The Pitch playing rough with former advertisers as their biz model switches to donations.

Party's Over: Port Fonda's "cool kid" reputation masked years of sexual harassment, fear, and abuse

Photo by Travis Young, Illustration by Katelyn Betz It should have been easy. Valentine's Day 2020 was a Friday-guaranteed money for any restaurant with a shred of ambience. Port Fonda, Kansas City's nationally lauded Mexican restaurant, was hosting a four-course dinner inspired by Laura Esquivel's novel Like Water for Chocolate.

Actually, Port Fonda was pretty close to Bob Evans. They're what your mom imagines ethnic food tastes like.

I was excited when I heard about a new cable show called Beating Bobby Flay but disappointed it wasn't about 30 minutes of beating the crap out of that snug bastard chef.

Not even going to give the pitch one single page view click.

Will the pitch just hurry up and shut down already!

It's not news anymore, it's just gossip and left wing corporate globalist propaganda and talking points.

Has it's fag cali editor recovered from covid yet, or was it all just an attention whore publicity stunt?

The Pitch staffers and liberal hipsters who criticize Port Fonda voted for Biden who is accused of inappropriately touching and groping women.

Hipsters have their own drama, too.

It's a clique and you're not in it.

^^^ True.

Drama at the pitch is the next paycheck.

the pitch wants kansas city to be known as pretentious community where a couple gringos slinging their interpretation of avant garde corn tortillas are errant lords of
Bridgerton.
