With Northeast Kingdom’s public persona becoming evermore grander on a national scale, many feminists–both in and out of Bushwick–have taken issue with the patriarchal name of the establishment.

The owner of the very expensive restaurant, Mark Overpryce, a 38-year-old from Augusta, Maine, has, thus, decided to take according measures in order to placate the period-driven masses. “I realize now that there is a certain sexism to Northeast Kingdom’s name. That’s why it is my pleasure to announce that we will be altering it to Southwest Queendom,” Overpryce confirmed in an exclusive statement to The Burning Bush.

The name change is expected to go into effect at the beginning of next week, giving Overpryce time to hire painters to hand paint the moniker in a neon pink Curlz font (big up to L-Mo’s on that front) to solidify the feminine feel. The restaurant will also be offering a Southwest-inspired menu in honor of its new handle. Think: everything with corn and black beans. Unfortunately, Overpryce also sees the re-branding as an opportunity to further raise the price points of each food item. “Feminism has its cost, you know,” he said as he watched one of his employees restock the tampon machine in the bathroom.
