VICTORY: No Tilted Kilt in Evanston

tilted kilt1

When owners of the rabidly sexist restaurant chain Tilted Kilt tried to open a new franchise in Evanston, Illinois, Kathleen Flaherty and Cynthia Farenga said “no way.” They started a MoveOn Petition to Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl, asking her to deny the restaurant owner’s application for a liquor license. After collecting more than 1,000 signatures, they delivered their petition at a public liquor commission hearing and were joined by dozens of petition-signers with signs. In the face of clear community opposition, the Tilted Kilt was denied a liquor license by the city and kept out of Kathleen and Cynthia’s neighborhood.
