Last Call: No More Ladies Night In Gainesville Edition

Sadly, the era of ladies night is tragically coming to an end – at least in Gainesville, Florida.

They’ll be notifying 115 bars and restaurants in the city limits in the next few days that they will no longer be able to give discounts based on gender, reports the Gainesville Sun.

Cecil Howard, the city’s director of equal opportunity, said the city hasn’t gotten any complaints about discrimination based on these sorts of promotions. But they are taking a cautious route.

Gainesville officials are following a pattern in other places, from Clearwater to California, where discrimination laws have been strictly interpreted to strike down such discounts.

Wait. The city has a director of equal opportunity? What the hell? They should have a director of letting women get drunk and loose department, if you ask me.

But what do I know? On to the usual tomfoolery.

                @semper_ubi_sub_ubi, thanks! I had pizza to celebrate. And ice-cream for laters. I’m going to have to do a fourth day of walking, but hey, it’s the first big-ticket sale for me…

                  @Sculptor?!?, I ran for the first time in about a week this afternoon. Went drinking after class rather than eating lunch and I needed to sober up. Wasn’t the healthiest decision I have made in my life.

                  First big-ticket deserves iced cream indeed.

      @Sculptor?!?, The best is the concluding paragraph; the fruit of a journalism degree (no offence to FD intended, I’m writing about generalities).

    Sculptor?!?, did you ever watch Deadwood? I was just procrastinating on an assignment I working on for tomorrow by checking out Warming Glow and seeing a link to a New Yorker article talking about the show of one of the main characters from Deadwood. http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critics/television/2010/04/05/100405crte_television_franklin?currentPage=1

    He also had the movie ‘Hitman’ which he acted like his Deadwood character (I wouldn’t call that movie ‘good’). That movie also had the Ukrainian Bond Girl from the last film and she showed her boobies.

      @semper_ubi_sub_ubi, I don’t really know why I passed it along, other than being a New Yorker article about TV and giving us the illusion that we’re classy folks (I’m really only speaking about giving myself that illusion). Feel free to ignore it.

        @semper_ubi_sub_ubi, I loved Deadwood. Heaven for a costume geek like me, and I also like Ian McShane. Timothy Olyphant’s awesome too – I just keep forgetting to tune into the new show…

          @Sculptor?!?, I had never heard of it. Ian McShane is all kinds of awesome. My brother like ‘Kings’ that was on TV last summer. He hated the main character, but said McShane made it good. Likewise for that ‘Deathrace’ movie I mentioned (and no, I don’t mean the Deathrace film that you’re thinking of, I mean the newer, shittier version).

          Dare I mention that I was once involved in a Rev. War re-enactment group? Royal Provincials, so we wore the green coats.

              @Sculptor?!?, I haven’t done it in years. Concentrated on spending the summer working so that I could pay for school. It was fun, however, for a while. It’s nice to make the choice not to live with modern stuff for a weekend. Some people were into it a little too much for me though. One of the big events was a 10 day trek through the Adirondacks (which one year became 11 because a bridge washed out) taking nothing that wasn’t 18th century replica. I never did that, but it would be cool to do it sometime.

    My usual train wreck TV – RuPaul’s Drag Race. I can’t stay away from this show, it just kills me. I’m sure they don’t mean it to be nearly as funny as *I* find it, but hey.
