A Baltimore “Hon-troversy” heats up in Hampden. The embattled Cafe Hon restaurant gets national attention as a kitchen nightmare.
Gordon Ramsay of “Kitchen Nightmares” gathered the staff at Cafe Hon to tell owner Denise Whiting what they really think of her. Gordon and Whiting stopped by Mix 106.5 to conduct an interview for the station.
The word “hon” no longer belongs to Denise Whiting. She did away with the trademark to save her business.
Honfest takes over Hampden this weekend, but not without some controversy. Debate over festival rules and trademarking continues.
The outrage continues after the owner of Hampden’s Cafe Hon copyrights the word “hon.” She says she did it for business reasons.
“Hey Hon” is a Baltimore term of endearment, and now the subject of a protest.
