"Free parties" at Gossips
On my walk to work this morning, I couldn't help but notice this sign on the front window of the Calvert Street club Gossips.
Gossips seems like it's been there forever, but for some reason, I've never been inside.
It's probably the only club downtown that I've never checked out, actually.
Anyway, the sign begs passersby to book "free" parties there.
That begs the question: What, exactly, is a free party? ...
I like the sound of a "free party." As we all know, "Free Makes Everything Better" is one of Midnight Sun's unofficial slogans.
Is the booze free? Not everybody associates booze with partying, but I do. And I know I'm not alone here. So, to me, a free party implies free booze.
A free party would also have free entry, methinks. Cover charges are decidedly un-free.
So, after reading this sign, I'm highly tempted to dial up Biglesproductionsinc at the posted number and find out what his/her/their definition of "free parties" is. In fact, I think I will.
