Yesterday, I wrote a bit about my latest social experiment. My favourite thing about this particular experiment is the observation of cultural behaviour during the different themes nights at the crew bar.
1. American night means it’ll be a college frat party, along with beer pong, flip cup and other drinking games. Men will typically ignore women, opting instead to impress the fairer sex with their drinking prowess, until they are slurring and heavily inebriated.
2. Latin night means lots of salsa (which sounds fun in theory, except when you have 5 women and 50 men to dance with). The best male dancers get the girl, while the rest of the male population glare with envy.
3. Fillipino night is never complete without hours upon hours of karaoke. And sometimes food magically appears during the night.
4. Balkan night involves a lot of dancing around in a big circle with arms on shoulders. Which is far more practical than having to find an elusive female to dance with. It’s also easier to stay standing after having a few drinks. The men seem quite overt when interested in a girl, not unlike how a tiger would approach a wounded wildebeest.
5. Indian night is similar to Balkan night except with only men dancing. Somehow, that seems a little gay. I don’t think anyone gets action after Indian night. At least no women do.
6. Caribbean night invariably results in men standing close to the walls, while swaying to the music. They also seem fond of wearing sunglasses – perhaps Caribbean men suffer from photosensitivity. Nevertheless, when a suitable female is identified, the favored dance-style involves grinding and dry-humping.
7. British night means heavy drinking, while standing on the dance-floor and talking.
