That fashion note, as well as the Wynkoop's food, came in for numerous comments yesterday, several from chef Chris Cina, who's now at the Wynkoop full-time.
I'm glad to see this, but wish the brewing industry was such that this wasn't particularly newsworthy. And while Bess is absolutely entitled to wear whatever color boots she wants, the writer's emphasis on those pink boots made me cringe. Maybe next time he could try not to infantilize his female subjects quite so much.
By the way, the association that pushes for more females in the brewing business is named the Pink Boots Society -- and it sells books in all shades of pink.
Is the Wynkoop's kitchen also in the pink? Here's one of Cina's comments:
When was the last time you were in? I've been here 3 weeks as the chef, I've instituted several menu changes and can promise the food has gotten better. Please come in and give it a try if you haven't been in recently.
When were you last in the Wynkoop? What do you think of the food? And how about a woman finally breaking through that beer-glass ceiling?
