In Florida, No More Ladies Night At Some Bars

Guys who feel left out of ladies night drink specials may want to think less about that free Sierra Nevada and more about platform Pradas. Some Florida bars are renaming ladies night to "high heel" or "shaved leg" night. This comes after the city of Gainesville told bars that ladies night violates the city's anti-discrimination ordinance.

Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly.

Guys who feel left out of ladies night drink specials may want to think less about that free Sierra Nevada and more about platform Pradas. Some Florida bars are renaming ladies night high heel or shaved leg night. This comes after Gainesville told bars that ladies night violates the city's anti-discrimination ordinance. Five men have already claimed their drinks at one bar, we assume, with silky smooth legs.
