So close to success...

Post by D5CAV » Wed Apr 24, 2019 10:13 pm

Feminist Vegan Cafe that charges men an 18% surcharge goes out of business: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04- ... ter-24-mos

They were so close to a successful business model that charges men a lot more than 18% surcharge. Those businesses also give women priority seating, sometimes free drinks, and some of those women are even put on a pedestal and showered with cash.

So sad! If they had only made a slight change to their business model, they could continue to "soak men" for "participating in the patriarchy", and make a huge profit in the process!

I believe the colloquial term for those businesses is "strip clubs"
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Apparently their price model wasn't the only issue

From Instapundit
It took 5 minutes to get the attention of a waitress who seemed to be more interested in chatting to her friends, rather than serving a customer who’d just walked through the door. I was eventually seated and chose the gnocchi paired with the suggested pinot noir. The gnocchi arrived and I was bitterly disappointed. The gnocchi was very undercooked and had a floury texture, the mushrooms were burnt and the dish lacked any real flavour. The only enjoyable part of the meal was the wine. I left most of my meal on the plate and finished my wine.

When I asked for the bill, the waitress asked if there was a problem with my meal, since I’d left most of it on my plate. When I told her of my dissatisfaction with the meal, she morphed into an aggressive and irate woman who then started dispatching some rather vile language. Not wanting to cause a scene, I subsequently left the requisite cash on the table, which included a 15% tip, and promptly walked out. As I was walking past the register on the way out, I could hear the same woman telling the other waitress working with her that I was a “vile beast” and that I “wasn’t welcome here again”.


You’ll notice he complained about everything but the price.

A vegan restaurant goes out of business...and nothing of value was lost.

I think the only vegitarian restaurants that see any real success, are the Indian ones, as its less about trying to make something emulate dishes that have meat in them, but a style in their own right, using dishes that have never had meat in them.
