Bar Requires High Heels For Female Patrons

Bar Requires High Heels For Female Patrons

You know how high heels are really bad for your feet? Well, one bar thinks that you should be required to harm your feet in order to get through their doors! Cool, right? ProAbition, a self-proclaimed “UltraLounge” in Riverside, California, put out a flier on Facebook to encourage people to attend their 1920s-themed opening night. On it, they included a guide for how customers should dress. More »

A Scottish Nightclub Put Two Way Mirrors In The Bathroom

A Scottish Nightclub Put Two Way Mirrors In The Bathroom

You know, I’ve always been apt to regard bathrooms as the last modern sanctuary. When I was a kid, whenever I felt overwhelmed by… anything, really… I’d lock myself in the bathroom and read. I knew that I could basically stay there as long as I wanted and no one could ask to see me or bother me. I still feel like they’re safe places, in general. I guess the owners of the Shimmy Club in Glasgow really wanted me to stop feeling that way, because they installed two way mirrors in their bathrooms. More »

Anyway, the story inspired us to wonder, who goes clubbing with his/her parents? The answer is Gloss EIC Jennifer Wright. …but she does it for the waffles. More »

Is Disliking Baggy Pants Racist?

Is Disliking Baggy Pants Racist?

I hate baggy pants. I think they make people look like they do not understand how pants work. (Pants working = pants that stay above your hips unsopported by your hands. Pants falling down your butt = pants fail). I discriminate strongly against people who do not seem to understand pants because they do not seem to understand pants. I did not realize until today that I was a bigot. More »

What’s the Most Embarrassing Thing You’ve Ever Done at a Club?

What's the Most Embarrassing Thing You've Ever Done at a Club?

Over at Gawker, Brian Moylan lists seven things not to do at a club. They include taking pictures (too much flashiness), dancing on the banquette (you’re not Paris), and holding hands with your entire posse (too clusterfuck-inducing).

And while these are all very, very solid suggestions, none of them are as embarrassing as, say, puking on the DJ, pocket-dialing your significant other while making out with someone else, or crying your eyes out loudly in front of all your friends…who are there for your birthday. More »
