Uh, you guys do realize why there is a ladies night, don't you?
If bars had "men's night" they would wind up with a bunch of guys, and no women. As a result, many of the guys would stop going (even if the beers
were free), and the bars would start to lose money.
I realize that not ALL guys go to the bar hoping to meet a girl, but a good majority of them do. Even if they are not looking to hook-up, how many
men would want to go to a bar where you are surrounded by a bunch of other guys, with no women to improve the view?
Women are far more likely to go to a place where their drinks are cheaper, and guys tend to go to the places they know women will be.
The same rule wouldn't work with reversed gender roles, because women still prefer to be pursued. We don't want to be the ones who have to go out
looking for guys. That would be contrary to our nature. Bar owners know this and take advantage of it.
When the parts we play are reversed, and men can get laid anytime, anywhere, but women can't, then men's night will take the place of ladies night
in the bars of the world. Until then, I think you'll just have to "grin and bear it".
