Ladies’ Night Now Illegal in MN

I blame feminism. Hey, equality! And Bush, just because.

It’s a bastion of bar culture: “Ladies’ Night,” staged to attract female customers by cutting their drink prices and cover charges.

It’s also illegal gender discrimination, according to the Minnesota Department of Human Rights.

The department charged this week that by having ladies’ nights, five Twin Cities establishments denied men the right to “full and equal enjoyment” of their businesses.

“Gender-based pricing violates the [state] Human Rights Act,” Commissioner James Kirkpatrick said in a statement.

Shouldn’t a business choose what promotions they wish to implement without interference from the government?
