WTF? You Must Be Under 12 To Party Here
Manhattan is now the proud home of a monthly nightclub event at which parents can bring in their elementary-aged children, turn them loose on the dancefloor, and toss back a couple in the middle of the day.
CNN Money attended New York’s monthly Fuzipop afternoon dance event, which features a 12-and-under age limit and a 9-year-old resident DJ… oh, and a full bar.
The writer’s description made us cringe:The dance floor was thick with the smell of sweat and alcohol, and tattooed arms waved neon glow sticks through the dark as a remix of Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” filled the club.
We’re assuming fake tattoos. The kids are served juice boxes only, but that doesn’t mean the bartenders didn’t work hard keeping parents in high “spirits.” Vodka was apparently the overwhelming favorite.
It would seem as if the organizers had some of the adult juice in their boxes, charging “$20 for a parent and child and $60 for a family of four,” which doesn’t make an extreme amount of mathematical sense, at least not sober.
Poor arithmetic notwithstanding, the event is reported to be breaking even and on its way to turning a profit, and how can you put a price on teaching your kids a valuable lesson about drinking responsibly with a real-life demonstration?
