ZombiesYall: I read the article and I don't think it's clear on what illegal thing has happened here. A grown man should know how much he can drink before he becomes blacked out and spends over 40k. It's not as if they drugged the guy. Is it now illegal to lead someone on? I don't get it.


IANAL but I believe bars are supposed to stop serving you once you are clearly drunk (obviously not a rule/law that is followed widely, but it's on the books most places).

If he went beyond drunk to blackout status and they kept on serving, or at least charging, there could be some liability there.

And you're embracing a false double standard. Don't pretend for a second you'd say the same thing about this with the genders flipped.


You don't know me very well, then. Because I say it all the time around here.

I don't think you read the article. There was a little part that mentioned how they would dose the guy's beers with vodka to get them a little more hammered. That will mess up anyone's beer math.

Big shoes, and custom gloves?

custom shoes, actually. The XXL gloves from REI work great, and I can put in hand-warmers with the extra space on really cold days when walking to class.

I sadly have tiny feet. Kids size 3, hello kitty light up shoes are awesome.

Yes, that wonderful local micro brew is quite tasty. The alcohol zing is just part of its hoppy character.

Trance354: last time I went to a bar, some chick tried to buy me a drink, to which I replied, "Not for all the tea in china. Now, I have a pool game to win." She was appropriately shocked, but she was also 250+ pounds,


I have a similar story with a 250+ lb girl, but it did NOT end well.

It was a coyote morning in a hotel in Dallas. I was in college.

I thought I could sneak into my apartment without my roommate noticing at 6:10 am. He noticed, had a pillow under his T-shirt as if it were a giant belly, then went about his business.

Yup. And people would be outraged if someone did that to a woman's drink.

Yet the same happened to these guys, and people are just calling them dumbasses. Jealousy maybe? The guys had the money to go around club hopping with some attractive chicks, nothing wrong with that. But they didn't expect their drinks to be spiked with hard liquor and scammed by being charged exorbitant prices that weren't clearly labelled. It's not much better than getting them drunk and just stealing their wallets, but the perpetrators tried to disguise it as legal to get away with it for as long as possible. They probably figured the guys would be too embarrassed to complain about the bill.

Either there's a massive double standard (obviously) or people are ignoring the parts where the guys had their drinks spiked and were also bilked by other shady methods, rather than having just innocently drank a little too much and spent a little more than expected.

Smeggy Smurf: Don't drink shiatty beer that adding vodak can make better


I dunno about other people, but I think I'd notice that my drink was laced with liquor more quickly in something cheap like Budweiser since it has very little taste and alcohol, than an expensive stout or something. A stronger taste would probably better cover something being added.
Either way, Vodka doesn't have much taste, and it wouldn't have taken much to raise the alcohol content significantly.

The city charges these clubs multi million dollar liquor licenses that allow to price gauge the shiat out of alcohol, i would say they should be complicit as well.
 
2012-11-05 12:48:54 AM
Strip clubs in Soho are notorious for this. Vastly overpriced drinks, women working there asking men to buy them drinks and enormous bouncers at the door to force the poor idiots to pay the colossal bill they didn't expect.

I bought a woman a drink once, 29 years later I am still picking up the tab.
How do we make this a class action suit?
 
2012-11-05 08:05:05 AM

Gyrfalcon: Your analogy would be accurate if the women were being charged with rape. However, what happened here is not rape. What happened here is that the men got sloppy drunk and then paid exorbitant amounts of money for cheap booze and overpriced fish eggs and bad lap dances, hoping beyond hope that some butt-ugly women would somehow find them attractive enough to sleep with them. Which is pathetic and sad, but is hardly in the same category as a predator getting a victim drunk so he can take sexual advantage of them.


So a a predator getting a victim drunk so he can take sexual advantage, is completely different thana group of predators getting a victim drunk so they can take finnancial advantage?

I've seen the bright lights of Memphis and the Commodore Hotel
And, underneath a street lamp I met a Southern Belle
Well, she took me to the river where she cast her spell
And, in that southern moonlight she sang the song so well

If you'll be my Dixie Chicken, I'll be your Tennessee Lamb
And we can walk together down in Dixieland
Down in Dixieland
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/l/little+feat/dixie+chicken_20191946.html ]
Well, we made all the hot spots - my money flowed like wine
And then that lowdown southern whiskey began to fog my mind
And I don't remember church bells or the money I put down
On the white picket fence and boardwalk of the house at the edge of town
Oh, but boy do I remember the strain of her refrain
And the nights we spent together, and the way she called my name

If you'll be my Dixie Chicken, I'll be your Tennessee Lamb
And we can walk together down in Dixieland
Down in Dixieland

Well, it's been a year since she ran away - guess that guitar player sure could play
She always liked to sing along - she's always handy with a song
Then one night in the lobby of the Commodore Hotel
I chanced to meet a bartender who said he knew her well
And as he handed me a drink he began to hum a song
And all the boys there at the bar began to sing along

If you'll be my Dixie Chicken, I'll be your Tennessee Lamb
And we can walk together down in Dixieland
Down in Dixieland

liam76: So a a predator getting a victim drunk so he can take sexual advantage, is completely different thana group of predators getting a victim drunk so they can take finnancial advantage?

I would like to coin a new phrase.


... Fiscal rape.
 
2012-11-05 11:48:40 AM
So, what I've taken from this is that:

1. Spiking the guy's drink was wrong.
2. Charging him prices for drinks that he wasn't aware of was wrong.
3. Allowing him to drink himself over the legal limit was wrong.

I'm assuming the above are illegal in most cases (please correct me if I'm wrong here lawyers).

So, would just hiring some hot chicks to flirt with guys and get them to buy drinks be illegal? I ask because I thought of this idea a while back when deciding whether or not to open a bar. I felt it was immoral, but not illegal. Is there anything illegal about it, or just immoral?

Considering this is the technique used in many strip clubs in Houston, I figured it had to be legal.

/not planning on doing it (as I determined by my standards it was immoral), just curious at this point.

mbillips: Picking up women in bars is best enjoyed as a Zen exercise. Give up desire and enjoy the moment. Buy people drinks, laugh and make merry. Then if you go home alone, as one does most of the time, you still had fun.


Excellent advice for any younger Farkers.
 
2012-11-05 05:11:12 PM

oukewldave: My fellow males are retarded. My female friends are married and when we go out (with their husbands), their job is to flirt with guys who actually buy us all drinks. They like to harmlessly flirt with other guys and we like free drinks. Works out for everyone, except the idiot guys who actually bought the drinks. Did you actually think these two women with wedding rings on and with three other guys are going to go home with you? lol.


Don't you get tired of the roofies?
