my beloved bk neighborhood has been overrun by the mega rich yuppie douchebag set, and the bar on the corner now has these awful people with their kids running around and bothering people...it's called ENTITLED.

so what you're saying is you feel ... entitled ... to a bar with no kids in it

ienjoyhotdogs, Friday, 11 April 2014 20:46 (five years ago) link

does the bar serve food? i think there are laws out here about bringing underage kids into just straight up bars... maybe i'm making that up, i don't know.

tylerw, Friday, 11 April 2014 20:47 (five years ago) link

bars don't have kids in them, it's right in the name: BAR

j., Friday, 11 April 2014 20:47 (five years ago) link

calstars do you have kids? i'm guess you don't?

fwiw i don't have a problem with this depending on circumstances. though i have a kid and i have never done it.

My sister and bro in law bring my eldest niece (four years old) to bars whenever policy permits. Last time she sat on my knees and jabbered while I drank my scotch.

Bryan Fairy (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 11 April 2014 20:49 (five years ago) link

This thread is relevant to my interests. I take my baby to bars all the time. If there's a changing table in the bathroom, it's fair game, IMO.

Why do intolerant tools feel the need to go to bars? Dud

dan m, Friday, 11 April 2014 20:58 (five years ago) link

It's pretty easy with Ivy. She's 4.5 months old so she just hangs out in the carrier strapped to one of us while we drinky drink drink (usually sleeping). We go during off hours though, usually a Sunday afternoon to a place we know won't be crowded or annoying.

Jeff, Friday, 11 April 2014 21:02 (five years ago) link

Are you calling me an intolerant tool? lol

calstars, Friday, 11 April 2014 21:02 (five years ago) link

XP we're pretty thoughtful about it. Like I'm not wheeling a double wide stroller into the corner slashie at 11:30 on a Friday so I can throw back shots while my neglected infant screams. It's mostly between 1 and 5 in bars that I know are kid-friendly for a couple of beers then back home.

Or what Jeff said, as we share that particular baby.

carl agatha, Friday, 11 April 2014 21:04 (five years ago) link

I only feed my baby alcohol at home.

when I see a child in a bar, it reminds me to get absolutely wasted. because I may be so lucky to have a child of my own someday. thanks for the reminder.

Belgian Flanders Albums Chart (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 11 April 2014 21:28 (five years ago) link

I should clarify that I meant lucky in a truly positive and earnest sense there.

Iago Galdston, Saturday, 12 April 2014 18:54 (five years ago) link

I am fine with babbies in bars and anywhere else UNLESS they are crying, in which case I am gonna be irritated if a parent does not remove said child until such crying ceases.

I make exceptions for moving trains, airplanes.

everywhere that has good reasonably priced food by me is a semi-bar at least, so hell yes we bring our infant to bars. this is not even a thing really in MN to be honest, kids in bars go back to the state incorporation as far as i can tell.

Corpsepaint Counterpaint (jjjusten), Saturday, 12 April 2014 19:07 (five years ago) link

but yeah, not into anything that would be just booze plus a pizza oven or anything, although there are hardly any of those around, and the ones that are are pretty shitty whether you have a kid or not.

Corpsepaint Counterpaint (jjjusten), Saturday, 12 April 2014 19:09 (five years ago) link

Bars that won't let me and my son sit at the bar and watch a ballgame = MASSIVE DUD. Fortunately I do in fact live in Wisconsin, where everybody brings their kid to the bar, so this is seldom a problem.

don't bring yr kids where there is food either imo

No, but I breastfed her at the table while drinking a beer.

Saw that dynamic in action recently at a beer garden in Pk Slope, kids playing a loud game directly under the television during a World Cup game that many people were there to watch. Tbh I thought it should be up to the bar staff to ask them to behave appropriately, not on other patrons. Not that it's easy for the staff either, but customers policing other customers seems like NAGL. The issue isn't really children being there as much as parents who treat all spaces as children's spaces imo.

Brewery near me with bar/restaurant attachment and sorta family friendly game and activity spaces like a lot of these places do now recently instituted a “No kids after 6” rule and it’s gotten a lot of parents riled up.

Was not uncommon for parents to just chill out while their kids ran around the place unattended and it was consistently causing issues.

Have sympathy for attentive parents doing it right (or at least trying), but goddamn after recently having a herd of kids running wild in a similar space and nearly getting my coffee kicked all over my laptop while the responsible parent sat by and said nothing I’m very OK with it.

I was recently laughing at what a drunken degenerate, flat trashing, vodka swilling, lefty posh-boy waster Polly Toynbee's fatha was in his young days. But wikipedia revealed as well as going into a right wing sulk in his dotage. He wrote some grumpy piece in the early 60's about how he's glad everyone has finally realised what a pile of steaming dogshit J R R Tolkien is and stopped buying his wretched books and condemning them to the obscurity the worthless pos deserve.

sorry slightly offtopic, but arrgh fuck ya anyways!

thinking of becoming a dad in order to bring kids to bars

bookmarkflaglink (jim in vancouver), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 22:34 (three months ago) link

so my place of residence at the moment is salt lake city. it's known for being the mormon capital, and mormons are known for having lots of children. the reputation is accurate. almost everywhere i go outside of my bedroom in this state i have to share public space with countless moms and dads and their broods of four or more children. now i'm not so curmudgeonly as to categorically hate children or people who decide to have one or two kids but i find it exasperating and pathetic when mom and dad have obviously made an effort to produce 3 or more of themselves, increasing the net stupidity of humanity and adding a significant amount of additional co2 to the atmosphere.

the gym i go to is a two-floor barbell gym, locally owned and run. i am serious about weightlifting and go almost every day. today i was using the cable station on the second floor of an almost-empty gym when a herd of 6 kids and mom appear at the top of the staircase behind me. two of them start playing hopscotch right at the edge of my gym personal space and the rest climb on to the exercise bikes nearby and dink around. mom is doing nothing, just standing there watching them. i get very irritated and lose it, growling "this isn't a playground" at the kids and mom. i don't regret it. to that mom: i don't need to deal with your six fucking kids at my gym and i hate you and this """"family friendly"""" garbage can of a state for making it ordinary and acceptable for you to bring them there.
