Plaza flash mob wasn’t about race until it was about race
Hours before they called the cops and the U.S. Marshals, there were warning signs we were in for trouble. “These are the same people that were here the last time it happened,” one of the servers said while waiting for food to come out of the kitchen at the Cheesecake Factory on the Plaza.
A manager who hadn’t worked on the Plaza long enough to know it attracted as many trashy people as rich people was complaining about a table of a dozen kids who’d ordered one piece of cheesecake and asked for 12 forks.
