Doesn't sound like a fabulous place.

Awww, I'm happy for Kevin James and John Cho.

canceled a same-sex wedding party after saying gay and feng shui don't go together

Because feng shui is the exclusive domain of heterosexuals?

Tell the truth, the West Village is now about NYU students and transplanted Wisconsites than being gay.

I miss Greenwich Village...especially Panchitos.

Feng shui doesn't work like that!

Or, more accurately, feng shui doesn't work at all.

Color me confused ... aren't gay interior decorators the undisputed experts of Westernized feng shui?
 
2012-09-18 03:02:02 PM
And banning them is going to be really bad for the bottom line. Negative yelp reviews rolling in already from what I can see.

stupid ass, it's "partiers"

Exactly what I was thinking... under any other circumstances this "bad for feng shui" would be the gayest excuse in history for anything. I'm so confused now.

Yeah, I'm gonna want to hear the owner's side here. It sounds to me like the fired manager blew things up in retaliation for losing his job. I've eaten at both locations and some of this guy's other restaurants and there have been gay people in all the time. They used to host a gay dance party on the second floor of the old location.

So he's in Greenwich Village, and says that a large gathering of gays would, if anything, screw up his interior decoration scheme?

Did this guy just drop out of bizzarro world or something?

Isn't that kinda like cancelling a wedding party between a Jew and a Muslim at your restaurant because Jihan might break-out? No?

Nevermind.

FYI: Greenwich is not pronounced "Green Witch" but instead rhymes with "spinach".

Penn and Teller covered this on an episode of Bullshiat. They had 3 or 4 different Fung Shui "experts" all do the same set of tasks. They all gave mutually conflicting advice.

At its base, Feng Shui was originally set up as a series of guidelines on how to build your house in 3000-4000 BC China. Most of the original guidelines made a lot of sense, for instance, building your house so that the door faces south (because there are dust storms from the Gobi desert during winter) or for a certain side of the building to face the south (to catch the warmth of the sun). That stuff is just fine and it worked really well as a bit of common sense guidelines for arrangement of architectural elements.

Of course, during the intervening years, all manner of superstitious stuff got into what was originally just good common sense. And now, we're left with a superstitious and unworkable jumble of rules that just doesn't apply to modern buildings at all.

The problem is clear if you understand the basic principles at work here: at a gay wedding, you have a whole lot of wangs pointing in the same direction, like a bunch of psychic daggers - it's the same principle that says you don't want shelves of books in uncovered bookcases. With as much bad feng shui as a gay wedding would bring, the owner might as well have just built his restaurant on the back of a drag... queen. This isn't rocket science.

Also, there's a long-standing rivalry between Chinese feng shui masters and Western interior designers that is almost certainly at the heart of this.

Their wedding website doesn't say anything about that venue's feng shui, though it does note that the teak lattice flooring might "pose some difficulty for women in very slender heels."

That's Sexist!

Yang goes with yin, not with other yangs.

He should at least remember to keep the privy lid down, lest the dragon of unhappiness fly up his bottom.

Greene and Eng are seeking unspecified damages. They note that Amber Village - which closed in June - never refunded their deposit.

That is evil.

How does one live in NY and refuse to deal with gay people? Move to Arkansas, then. Money is green, take it.

/And I didn't know Kevin James likes asian men.

Sounds like another old book of rules to me. Sure you talking about feng shui?
