A former waitress at Sticky's Finger Joint claims her boss dosed her with hallucinogenic mushrooms against her will, the Post reports. Sofie Rasmussen, who was 19 in 2012 when the incident occurred, alleges in court papers that owner Paul Abrahamian took her into the kitchen of the West Village eatery and force-fed her mushrooms in front of her coworkers, claiming it was "a new recipe."
Rasmussen recalls, “I felt weird. I was floating. I really didn’t want to talk to customers. I was being goofy. I was tripping, and I had one or two hours left on my shift,” she told the tabloid.
Sticky's denies the claims, although in January, the mastermind behind the restaurant's Twitter account jovially tweeted about getting blazed while driving, threatening to kick Sticky's dissenters in the mouth and, apropos of nothing, giant pink dildos, so who the hell knows what's going on over there. A call to Abrahamian was not returned, but we'll update this story if we hear back.
