The 12 Types Of Dudes Who Will Try To Pick You Up At A Bar

Brooklyn Bar Can’t Get Drunks To STFU, Ups The Drinking Age To 25 On Weekends

bar raises drinking age to 25

Drunk people are annoying — so annoying, in fact, that a Brooklyn bar is raising their drinking age on weekends to keep the youngest annoying drunks away. Neighbors have been complaining about bar patrons from Phil’s Crummy Corner leaving empties in their planters and screaming in the streets until 4 a.m.  So now the joint will no longer admit drinkers younger than 25 after 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, a plan they referred to as becoming a “quiet family place” (instead of a combination sports bar/Latin American restaurant, which is what Yelp calls it). Phil’s Crummy Corner is even hiring a bouncer to keep those young’uns out, too. Noisy assholes will have to find someplace else to drink … just stay out of Queens, please.

Get Me A Beer, You Effing Slacker!

The Casa Pocho bar in Cullera, Spain, actually encourages its patrons to swear at and insult the staff. In fact, they offer free drinks to the most original and creative pottymouths. Owner Bernard Mariusz, who was born in Poland, says he thought people needed somewhere to release their stress during the economic recession. “That way they won’t let it out on their family,” he said to Reuters. Spanish may be a romance language, but it does have a rich collection of obscenities, so the bar staff hopefully checks their feelings at the door. [Reuters]
