Cool Jerk Vol. 4: Thinkulus — at the printers!
Actually, I think you can get away with shorts in about 100%* of the restaurants in San Diego. (*rounded figure)
If I had a nickel for every time I heard “Put on some damn pants”…
I never recall a restaurant giving their customers shit about wearing shorts, unless you totally look like a transient.
I’ve seen signs in restaurants that state: “No shirt, No Shoes, No service”
But have never seen any signage about wearing or NOT wearing pants.
What about putting on some shoes, for cryin’ out loud!
Even in (most of) L.A….at least the places poor folks like I go, you can get away with anything. I’ve been to theatrical productions where people are way overdressed and others are in pajama pants. The only place I’ve seen someone get busted for shorts was jury duty. Granted, I don’t go to fancy pants places, I suppose.
Ha. I wear levi’s most of the time. But when it is time for responsiblility (or, the appearance of), I put on my “fancy pants”.
That one’s definitely about me. Weddinds, work, and funerals are the only place I don’t wear shorts. If a place doesn’t allow ‘em, I don’t spend my money there. Fo’ shiz.
What would life be without typos. I meant weddings of course.
And knew you would consider “fo’ shiz” to be legit.
Ever notice that really nice restaurants don’t have a “no shirt no shoes” policy on their door? It’s kind of a foregone conclusion.
@SKleefeld: HAR! @Mr.Hoisington, @Nowlin, @Rcarter, @stacy: I’m with ya. I even dared a friend to go into a McDonalds wearing ONLY a shirt and shoes. He never did, so far as I know. @Cory: Oh, I think I wore shorts to a wedding once. Fo shiz. @KeithG @Jodi: I’ve only had to wear pants less than a dozen times since “not working for The Man” (2006). And yet, still no tan. =:^O
Just for laughs, I wonder how far you could “dress down” and still get into a nice restaurant. (memo to self — things to try in 2011)
