Elia Herrera

Using humour to perpetuate Trump's demeaning and offensive rhetoric towards women, to sell a Mexican product, is disgusting. This is a lot bigger than La Carnita, it's about recognizing that as a culture we cannot adopt this way thinking by making light of comments like this.

Icewine is perceived as the untamable beast of the wine family. Have you ever heard someone pronounce their undying love for it? Highly unlikely.

When a restaurant is owned by a company whose vision and mandate does not address food -- but rather sports and entertainment -- it gives me cause for concern. MLSE: Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, is an archetype of this business model. But of course, a company such as this would (inevitably) expand into food-focused outlets, regardless.

I should have known better. Generally, you need to offer some leeway for new kids on the block -- at least three months to work out kinks. But I didn't. Because at the time, I thought -- "Bumpy ride, be damned! Imma get me some Hotline Bling." Oh, how naively hopeful I was.
