Brooklyn’s MeMe’s Diner

Target Details – Brooklyn’s MeMe’s Diner
(Click to Enlarge)

Such a “lovely” thing I found last night- Friday, July 6, 2018 – while I was out for a nice dinner. It seems that the Red Hen isn’t the only queer-centric restaurant to feel it’s OK to refuse service to members of President Trump’s administration.

Owners: Bill Clark and Libby Willis

They have no reservations at all about defining MeMe’s as a queer space owned by queers, staffed by queers, and made for queers, and space where members of President Trump’s staff and administration are not welcome. One can also assume that proud supporters of our President are also not welcome their. Hell! One can also assume that normal, heterosexual people aren’t particularly welcome at MeMe’s Diner either.

It’d Be A Shame

Yeah, MeMe’s Diner is such a lovely, little restaurant; it’d be a shame if something happened to it, it’s owners, it’s staff, and/or it’s preferred clientele. πŸ˜‰ You see, restaurant this small which has been open for less than a year can’t really sustain much in the way of setbacks or problems, so places like this are fragile and highly vulnerable to a plethora of possible catastrophes that would result in its destruction.

Then again, such a shame as that would be something that Bill Clark and Libby Willis would have brought upon themselves, their staff, and their clientele by their own hate, lack of compassion, and heterophobia. If Americans decide to enact reprisals upon them, so be it. The only sin has been committed by the owners, not the Americans enacting justice upon them via the means of their choice.

Now, I’m not issuing any threat of actual violence against Clark’s and Willis’ persons or property. That would, this context, potentially be illegal. Nor, of course, am I calling for any form of actual violence against their persons or property. I am merely providing what information I can about these “people” so that the American People can be properly informed and have the opportunity to take whatever action(s) they choose to in the face of Clark’s and Willis’ bigotry and hatefulness.

Brownstone living, especially areas that are a bit – or a bit more than a bit – “hood,” aren’t for everyone. I, however, find a lot to recommend such areas, I even get services as Maid Complete for cleaning houses to go there without any trouble – so over 13 years living in Bedford-Stuyvesant hasn’t come close to changing my mind. πŸ˜‰

Yeah, We Can Bake

People think of a lot of things when you mention Brooklyn. Baking, however, isn’t one of them. Sadly, we’re just not known for our bakeries.

Yeah, We Can Bake In Brooklyn

That’s a little sad and more than a stupid because here in Brooklyn, especially right here in Bed-Stuy, we can damn well bake some cake. πŸ˜›
