Monk's across the street is the better Dells bar.

I THINK IT'S "GIN" SPELLED BACKWARDS.

Ah, I get it. The PJs in the video were souvenirs from NIGS bar. Hillaryland vindicated again!

You are going to have a hard time believing this but I have been to that bar.

My parents own a cottage 5 miles from that bar on Lake Delton.

I have also been to Ishnala which is a nice alternative and nearby Nigs.

I am obviously very fabulous, cultured, hot and successful but there is a big part of me that is a Wisconsin redneck. I love going to Wisconsin red neck bars, fish frys, and Wisconsin auctions.

By the way, no comment on the Charlotte Allen column in the Wash Post today? I am surprised, you considering yourself a feminist would have a comment about it.

I love Wisconsin Dells too. It is totally tacky and low class.

I also love Coney Island, Old Orchard Beach and the amusement park at Santa Cruz. There is something about those honky tonk amusement parks (which are disappearing) that get me excited and feel alive.

Titus, I noticed it but wasn't in the mood to read it. Infighting among feminists? That's so 1980s to me. What did you find interesting about it?

Perhaps a Grateful Dead fan can pinpoint the site of the San Jose Acid Test, held at Big Nig's House in San Jose, on 12/04/65

Ann Althouse said...

Wait, the infighting one was something else that didn't interest me enough. The Charlotte Allen was the one about women swooning. I didn't see the point. I'm supposed to link because it was published in the WaPo and it says that? It will only encourage them.

titustandue said...

The article was more than women swooning over Barack which I agree is a little weird and disturbing.

She pointed out womens deficiencies compared to men.

I wasn't sure what to make of the article to be honest with you but it did create quite a bit of conversation in the blog world and just thought you may have an opinion of it.

The quote I found most interesting in the article among many was this:

"I can't help it, but reading about such episodes of screaming, gushing and swooning makes me wonder whether women -- I should say, "we women," of course -- aren't the weaker sex after all. Or even the stupid sex, our brains permanently occluded by random emotions, psychosomatic flailings and distraction by the superficial"

The "stupid sex" quote was what got me.

Ann Althouse said...

Eh. She's just trying to get attention. She's not going to get it from me. I'm wise to that game.

Titus, I read the article and somewhat agreed with it. I often look on some women and wonder what the hell is wrong with them. When the Beatles came to the US and I was a teenager, I cringed at the screaming, fainting, drooling girls and was embarrased to be a "girl" and refused to go see them because there was no point. You couldn't hear them.

I don't think that women are any less or any more than men as a group. We all stand on our own merits and fall on our own weaknesses.....but pulleeeese....fainting at the sound of Obamas or the Beatles mere presence??? I just don't get it.

I want to line these women up and slap them silly, except that it seems to be too late.


Nigs looks like a fun place.

True enough, but then again we don't discuss our bathroom habits or degenerate sex life in public.

I'm talking to you Titus.

I am tacky and low class and fabulous all in one I admit it!

tituspleay said...

Also, I like to talk about sex!!!

Sex is interesting to me and I have had interesting sexual experiences that are funny...so I share.

Mr. Forward said...

Titus, you are funny, you don't need sleazy.

Pardon my grumpy,I was just trying to create the appropriate closing time menacing atmosphere. Now I'm channeling morning after regrets. Will spare you the details.

Wozhawa.

I am an anamoly rapped up in an enigma tied by a enema.

A very unique fag who plays in the fabulous gay world of clothes, NYC, restaurants, working out but also enjoys my Wisconsin roots of fish fry, beer battered shrimp, french fried lobster and bowling and curling.
