Burrito Cart Closes…Owners Are Accused Of Cultural Appropriation

May 25th, 2017

Just one week after Kooks Burritos in Portland, Ore., was featured in a profile for local publication Willamette Week, the pop-up Mexican food cart has closed down amid accusations that they ripped off their recipes.

Kali Wilgus and Liz “LC” Connelly, the two white women who started Kooks earlier this year, have been accused of stealing their techniques from the “tortilla ladies” of Puerto Nuevo, Mexico — because Connelly told Willamette Week that they gathered their recipes and tortilla-making processes during a holiday road-trip to the Baja California village.

“I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did,” she told the site. “They told us the basic ingredients, and we saw them moving and stretching the dough similar to how pizza makers do before rolling it out with rolling pins.”

In the profile, which first ran May 16, Connelly also claimed that, when the Mexican cooks wouldn’t give up their trade secrets, she and Wilgus “were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look.”

Connelly then said she used a trial-and-error process to recreate a tortilla with the same flavor and texture after returning to Portland. She and Wilgus then opened their weekend pop-up inside a taco truck on SE Cesar Estrada Chavez Boulevard, and began serving their Mexican-style tortillas filled with California-inspired ingredients.

Though the eatery had been open for several months, the owners of Kooks were only recently accused of cultural appropriation by The Portland Mercury and Mic.com based on Connelly’s revelations.

“Because of Portland’s underlying racism, the people who rightly own these traditions and cultures that exist are already treated poorly,” The Portland Mercury said, calling the closure of Kooks a “victory.”

Man steals 800 pairs of shoes from Nike store in Portland

May 25th, 2017

According to a report from local Portland station KOIN-6, a man named Kevin Torain Millage managed to steal 800 pairs of shoes from an area Nike Factory Store.

The shoes were apparently valued at $5,000. Millage apparently admitted to stealing the shoes. It remains wholly unclear how he managed to steal them all on multiple occasions. There were reportedly four separate thefts beginning March 27 and increasing in worth until May 6.

This was all apparently to fund his drug habit. Yes, that was a dark turn.

From The Oregonian:

Police were able to identify Millage after reviewing the store’s in-house surveillance footage. Millage possessed three bags of heroin when he was arrested.

Millage is now in custody and has been charged with theft, conspiracy to commit theft, and unlawful possession of heroin.
