Westport and chains have never been a good mix. Am surprised it lasted that long. Even Starbucks didn't last. Westport could use a local wraps place though. I miss the days of Mesa Wraps where the condo building was later built (Port Fonda location). That was maybe my favorite wraps place anywhere (and one in Dupont Circle DC that was similar).
Thank you! I always tried to remember the name of that place which was around when I first started going to Westport. Always parked over there with no issues.

I used to manage this hotel a few years back. Yes just lipstick on a pig and anything to rent a room. I quit and switched careers real quick. Overall they had a good concept, just slumlord type of ownership. I know they have switched hands tho.

Sad to hear about that shooting at the Esports event. Always thought a game/ arcade spot is sorely missing in Westport.

I used to work with the owners brother (He was an engineer who left to run a daycare business with his wife) Both brothers are entrepreneurs and they are some of the nicest people u will ever meet. It's unfortunate that this happened but this was nothing in how the business was run and it's shouldn't be a trouble spot going forward. I hope his business can survive after this incident.

I see Westport released a masterplan including height restrictions. So dumb.
