New York Bar Serves Weak Drinks for Ladies, It’s Going Badly

A restaurant in Brooklyn is offering weaker drinks for women. Guess how much everyone hates it?

Look at all these women who have decided to drink elsewhere!

In Brooklyn, a Clinton Hill restaurant called Los Pollitos III has introduced a “his and hers” drinks menu, where the men’s drinks contain a higher alcohol content, and the options “for ladies” contain less.

According to restaurant manager Marcos Merino, who designed the new menu, the decision to water down the women’s drinks was meant to “make people laugh” and customers were supposed to “have fun with it.”

Bartender Leo Vasquez clarified to DNA Info, "Anyone can order anything, but a lot of times ladies don't like to have the strong stuff so this menu is for them."

So with all the fun and delightful gender imbalance going on, I think I’ll sit this one out, lest I over-exert myself and get the vapors.

I’ll leave it to Twitter to show you how the menu change is going:

Seriously? The bar would do a service to humanity by deleting alcohol from all its drinks. Beyond me why people voluntarily poison their systems with drinking. So much damage done by this legal poison.

I don't know why all the women are so up in arms and offended. I am an adult female and I personally like this idea. I am not a big drinker. Many times I go out and don't drink alcohol because I don't know how I will feel and I will often ask for my drink to be weaker (but never cheaper). So, ladies, before you get your proverbial panties in a bind, read this. You are over-reacting to something that most women would probably enjoy. An option.

Just order the men's drink. Who cares. Get a life.

1st off, I am a female.... if you ladies are soooo offend ... DO NOT Patronage this place... there are any other restaurants who would love your business..and for for those who wish to complain and continue to go there...when you are making the choice to drink from the "woman's menu".....I hope its at a cheaper price, or you are the true dummies in this story...

tdm-35-icon.png

Oooo...this is SO offensive, on just soooo many "levels".
I will NOT be patronizing this establishment!!!!!!!!!!!
(of course, I live no where NEAR it, but STILL!)
Say, what caused Atlantic City Casinos to post "drinks have ALCOHOL in them!!!!" signs all over the place?
Can I get a "less alcohol/lower cost" option at the fuel pump?

tdm-35-icon.png

with all the issues in this world, seriously people. I think it is a wonderful option, yes option, no one is forcing the women to chose this menu, but I for one, on occassion have requested a weak one.
Do you all protest against childrens menus as well??? what about the lighter portion menu, does that upset you as well??? you all truly need to get over yourselves!

The better idea would be to simply offer drinks of different alcohol levels without genderizing. I am sure there are some men who would not mind a lower alcohol level drink.

tdm-35-icon.png

HILARIOUS!!!! Ladies, I know your panties are in a bunch but just lighten up, go do a few girl pushups or some Pilates and get it out of your system!

tdm-35-icon.png

This would have been acceptable, and even responsible, had the restaurant just offered a "Light" version of all their drinks, not being gender specific. I'm surprised some bars don't already do this, notwithstanding a "Shirley Temple".

tdm-35-icon.png

where's Brooklyn?

tdm-35-icon.png

I think it a good idea. Women have a smaller capacity for alcohol than men. SIZE ... Nothing worse than a sloppy drunk women using her condition for her actions and blaming others for it

tdm-35-icon.png

you guys come on it is a breath of fresh air to see we ladies do have a special spot on the menu,,you think its great to be equal and tuff,,a lady is dainty and soft and having a special spot on a menu is high class,,to want to be seen as a HARD core drinker then you are not ladies you are whores,,yep stone hard drinkin whores,,because a woman is always to be delicate and with this said no wonder ladies are rare today they all want to be tuff and I will kick your butt and yada yada yada,,I salute the owner of the restirant for having great taste and giving ladies a special attention we deserve!!!

Those upset women either need to lighten up or check into Betty Ford. Although separating out the regular drinks from the lighter drinks as "his and hers" may be a bit old-fashioned, I find this marketing ploy to be VERY funny. And, I might enjoy an "old-fashioned" or other cocktail more if there was less alcohol. Am I the only one who finds alcohol to have a generally abrasive taste?

tdm-35-icon.png

Uhm..let's see..there is a his/hers menu..then there is one that says 'everyone'..gee..I guess if you don't want to order off the hers menu...THEN DON'T...is this rocket science? Don't think so!

tdm-35-icon.png

Sounds like people being offended just to be offended

tdm-35-icon.png

Uhm..ok...there is a his/hers menu..then there is one for 'everyone'..simple fact is..if you don't want what is on the hers menu..DON'T ORDER IT

tdm-35-icon.png

Call 800-waa-waaa to complain.

tdm-35-icon.png

Ladies that don't like it should call 800- waa-waaa

tdm-35-icon.png

Wow.....does everybody in the world have to go out of their way to get offended ? >; /

tdm-35-icon.png

This is a great idea, woman constantly complain drinks are too strong and oh my god here comes the shocker, men and women metabolized alcohol at different rates and men can drink more alcohol and feel the effects less. Also the surgeon general warning on alcohol comsumption suggests women should consume less alcohol than men. This outrage is a bunch of uppity feminist bullshit.

I'm ashamed to be called American now. We have become way too easily offended. Oh, that reminds me. Someone said "Hi" to me today. What a JERK. I was so angry and felt so violated and offended. How could someone do that to me? Arrrrrrrrrrrg! To say "Hi" to me, what kind of word do we live in? What a mean, inconsiderate, unloving, uncaring person and I had to run into this person. It ruined, my day, my life Arg! lol

GREAT IDEA, might help woman not to strip down so much as they do these day, jump up on tables and spread their legs because then they to often become murderers when they kill the baby that was created from their night of drunkenness.

Nothing wrong with that! Just the other day, my husband and I were presented with three champagne choices. I asked which was the "weaker." The bartender immediately picked one out, and I was thankful.
