OP-ED: San Diego's New Trailer-Park-Themed Restaurant | Perpetuating The Trend Of Treating America's Impoverished As Entertainment

August 20, 2017
By Brooke Binkowski

A new restaurant has opened in San Diego’s Gaslamp District. That in and of itself would not be something remarkable but for the name and theme of this particular eatery - Trailer Park After Dark. The underground restaurant and self-described “five star dive bar” features fashionably mismatched furniture, shopping carts & wheelbarrows for seating, wood wall paneling, and actual trailers scattered around the room. Were this mere 1970s nostalgia, I would have no issues with this restaurant. Even if this was the theme, if done respectfully, I still would have no qualms. But the way this place is set up and presented, with its stench of classism and whiff of racism, is wrong.
