The death of Wink part II: Trouble in Minnesota
In the lead-up to Valentine’s Day, I blogged about the demise of Wink, the city’s sex shop for women. Terry Richardson, Wink’s former landlord, essentially told me that the shop failed because of owner Elizabeth Rich’s erratic business practices; Richardson suggested she had abandoned the place. Some who read the post — including Rich herself — felt this was unfair to Rich. I believe the term “pile of shit” was used. That hurts.
Earlier this week, I finally talked to Rich (though I didn’t make note of this in the original post, I actually had tried to contact her back then). After the jump, read her side of the story. But if you want the short version: I was right.
