At least they know their audience

 grown folks bar
Saw this awesomely named spot on South Hanover Street in Brooklyn.

Don't know if I'm allowed in. I mean, how grown do you have to be?

And how folksy?

Do they have one of those height-measuring sticks like the ones you see in front of carnival rides?

you are so white.

Hahahahahahahaha. Thanks anon. Too true. Reading your comment was the first time I've really laughed all day.

"Grown Folks Bar and Lounge" , read: "Keep walking, young person."

Sam - you should go in there and try and stir things up by shouting things like:

Stuff costs more than it used to!
Someone just walked across your lawn!
Young people use curse words!

Sam go in, buy a Lotto ticket and Insinuate that If you win the Lotto you can afford to go to Brewer's Art.

"I remember when you used to have to flush the toilet by yourself, and you had to turn the water on to wash your hands and get your own towels ,now every thing is just done for you kids!" said the grown ups....

I remember back when all they had were wood-burnin' cats.
