Re: “McFadden's Institutes an Interesting Dress Code Policy

Like the work of Joyce, McFadden's Nashville is clearly uniquely Irish - brooding, complex and confusing, and vastly improved with whiskey.

The photo we see revealing the new dress code raises some questions. It seems hastily slapped up - from the outside - replete with the luxe wrinkled duct tape. And is it taped across the entry door? The questions only begin there.

Here's the dress code from the local McF's website: "NO: Hats, Visors, Do-Rags, Skull Caps, Cutt-Offs [sic], Plain White T-Shirts, Jerseys, Combat Boots, Ripped/Torn Pants, Excessively Baggy Clothing, Chains, Sunglasses Worn Indoors, Hoodies, Gym Attire, Motorcycle Jackets, Bandanas, Overly Revealing Clothing, Sleeveless Shirts for Men."

So if we take the new door sign as an update to the web policy:
1) at least your mother can get in again (work boots out but combat boots OK).
2) Just don't let her see your Dickies.
3) She can wear the cameo handed down from Irish ancestors,
4) but not on the chain. (Maybe she can do some kinda body mod with it?)
5) Best of all, while baggy pants, 3/4 length pants, sweatpants, and presumably, gym shorts are out it's safe to assume that sleeveless pants are OK. (Remember, the new door policy dumps the web policy's nasty swipe at Harpeth Hall with the "overly revealing clothing" shit.) Start pulling my Guinness now!
6) Tread lightly on hats - no flat bills, but aya gangsta shit aight. (Might be wise to get a protractor like this: http://citynoise.org/article/613).

Finally, let's flesh out the "integrity" part of the door sign a bit. If you wannabe a fookin' quasi-authentic pub, better learn to spell Guinness on your website.

One more thing. How come we don't have a "Douchiest Bar" category in our BON categories? Why? Oh, no particular reason. (http://dcist.com/2012/08/the_douchiest_bars_in_dc.php and
