Reader: Pay women the same wage as men and I'll give up free drinks at ladies' night

Steve Horner, the anti-ladies' night crusader, left Colorado years ago, but on a recent trip through this state he stopped by Brewski's, which just happened to be hosting a ladies' night. That inspired Horner to file a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division, charging once again that ladies' night deals discriminate against men.

Says Allison:

Pay women the same wage as men and I will gladly give up free well drinks.
Says Susan:
I don't know, I think you guys are worthy of men's night too. I'm willing to bet that women would be lining up to get in.
Says PhatCheddar:
As a single and "budget-wise" father, I like going to bars and agree, ladies' nights aren't fair, no matter how many broke, ratchet, kids-at-home pretty girls it attracts. Make DEALS for everyone.
And here's how Ivan sums it up:
Here's a headline for you, Westword: "Desperate shithead on crusade for a cheap beers."
