A Greenpoint Blind Item: Partying Like It’s 1959

tropicalthursdaysThis item comes from an anonymous tipster and although it will probably be a slam dunk for most of you my inner feminist demands I publish it here:

Which Greenpoint watering hole reduced one of its female bartender’s hours back to one shift a week after she refused to wear a bikini while slinging drinks Thursday night?

In 2009 we put a black man in the White House and yet expecting a woman to trot around in a bikini while serving drinks is considered a perfectly acceptable job requirement for one business establishment in the Garden Spot. Could someone please explain this to me?

  2. I have no idea what establishment that could be but she’s got to have some of legal recourse? I hate people.

  4. That would be Red Star — I was just there for brunch and noticed they were promoting bikini-clad bartenders on Thursdays, which I thought was funny since I was pretty sure the guy behind the bar couldn’t pull it off. It’s too bad that the place feels the need to check off every sports bar cliche in the book.

Tell me what you're thinking...
