Some Bars Get A Bad Rap

As per usual, Roissy nailed it on the head with his latest post, "There Is No Such Thing As A Bar Girl".

Some excerpts:

...If it isn’t yet obvious to the “bar girls are low quality” brigade let me spell it out for you: Girls who go to bars are the same as girls you meet anywhere else. They are not an exotic subspecies of womanhood. I understand the impulse of the Loser Mafia to want to disparage girls who are confident enough to go to bars and scoop up tons of male attention, but the facts don’t bear out the comforting belief. That classy, smartly attired girl with her pink Ipod who’s picking through the organic bean sprouts at Whole Foods is the same girl who was at the bar last night hitting up chumps for free drinks....

...Attractive girls who are in happy, committed relationships are often the biggest propagators of the “bars suck” meme, because in their lovestruck haze they have forgotten just how many nights they used to go out to bars. Their opinion is of no use to any man trying to figure out where to meet women...

...Only suckers throw away their time and money chasing the elusive “quality girl” through events, classes, or expensive but socially approved status-whoring hobbies. Bars are free...


I'm tired of people bashing the college bar I work in because of the type of girls who hang out there, or "the crowd" you have to deal with there. The more I work, the more I start to see faces who said they would never visit that bar. I see them dancing, and smiling and not being uptight prigs like sooooooo many Richmonders.

Most of these cows will never leave their ivory towers though. They're too busy inhabiting 2 or 3 bars in the fan on Friday nights, staring at the same guys in light blue button down shirts and khaki shorts. That sounds like fun.

Ha. You couldn't afford the 25 cent beers either. Besides, when do you ever pay for a beer?
