Why do bars, at some point in the evening, turn the lights down? It bugs the hell out of me. I like an open well lit bar.

They are just trying to help people like you get hooked up. Less visibility the better.



for the record, I prefer the dimmed lights.
Too funny!!!! I was going to add that dark lights might improve the Fatman's and others chances. Chuckle... you don't have to wait till you get so drunk that an ugly guy or gal looks good.

So.... people are not composed of Gals and Guys.

Another Gripe: Why would someone be seemingly offended by using specifically Gal's and Guys as opposed to people.

Pretty sure Gal's and Guy's covers people.

Reveals a gender. You cannot assume the gender.

So insensitive. You need woke.

Touring YouTube last night, and I came.across a guy reviewing the movie Blazing Saddles. In 2020 he was laughing his rear off following every clip he watched. Blazing poked fun at stereotype after stereotype. I would be received today?

Is there a gender other than gal or guy? Pretty sure, everyone "primarily" identifies as one or the other.

"So Sensitive". Pretty sure you have it donkey backwards. As such, I didn't start my response with LOL. At this point works for me: LOL

Help an old fart, who happens to be ugly and fat with the expression: "Woke".

It's actually effective. Was at Brio's with Mrs. Zunardo last Thursday for an early dinner. Had just started on some delicious gelato and tiramasu when the lights dimmed noticeably in the whole place. After a few minutes my wife looked up at me said, "Have I ever told you how cute you are?"

Well, maybe not as effective as the two daiquiris she had earlier in the meal. But I'm going with the lights for now.

They do this for the same reason casinos routinely do it. By dimming the lights, they can usually count on a percentage of folks losing track of time. They’re betting on this same population of customers spending more $ as a result. But yes, beer goggles are a given as well.

That's a thing? I need to google more.
Are you talking about the Zima/Jolly Rancher? That was huge with chicks when I was in college in the 90's. We use to have parties and buy a keg for the fellas and a cooler full of Zimas and Jack Daniels Country Cocktails for the ladies, along with a bowl of Jolly Ranchers. We had an agenda for sure lol.

I'd have a harder time finding Zima around here than finding jolly ranchers.

White Claw would be a different story.

What's this thread about?
