The owner of our company flew in last week from Palm Springs and hung out with us for a few days. Then on Friday, he took all of us out to dinner at Baba Yagas.
Then, after dinner, we sort of just wandered into one of the bars in the immediate area. Well, the bars in the immediate area all gay bars. There's South Beach, JR's, and Mining Company, all of which are only about 100 feet from each other. We chose JR's. He and two other male colleagues are gay. All the women in the office are straight so when we all go out, it may as well be "girls night".
It's a very strange thing to go into a bar where the men oggle one another. Of course, lesbians are welcome here, too, but really it's mostly men. Then scattered throughout the bar are boxes where a man will stand in a speedo or something and sort of dance to the music. I say sort of dance because really, they don't do a great job of it. One guy just sort of stood there and swayed with the music. Another at least had some interesting moves.
Then, there's the restroom. In the ladies room, there were only 2 stalls. I wonder if the men's room had more since there were so many men there. On the outside of the stall there reads a sign that says "no more than one person in stall at a time". I thought that was sort of interesting.
I actually enjoyed the experience but I think I would have preferred a place where we danced.
