Men - would you want to go to it?

HAMBURG, Germany (AP) - A German bar is offering women who want to go shopping without their partners the chance to park them at what it bills as the country's first kindergarten for men.

For $11.80, the Nox Bar in downtown Hamburg is offering boys' games and home-improvement coaching as well as a meal and two beers for men left there for a Saturday afternoon, while women are free to shop in the city's swanky boutiques. So far, the 'Maennergarten' has been a hit, with 20 men dumped there the first week, and 27 last Saturday, bar manager Alexander Stein said Tuesday.

'Many of the guys see it as just a gag, but then were surprised to find they got on really well with the others,' Stein said. He said women have been delighted to be able to get rid of their men until 6 p.m., when many German stores close for the weekend...

Ladies: Would you send your men to a place like this while you went out shopping for the day?

LoL! That's great! I sure would! As long as there were no scantily clad women there.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/18/03 - 10:21:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't "send" my man anywhere..
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/18/03 - 1:41:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oooooookaaaaaay... That is not really my idea of a good time. I'd rather be with my woman
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/18/03 - 1:53:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think I would be against that. It depends on what she's shopping for, and who else is with her.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/18/03 - 2:00:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
what unhailey said..
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/18/03 - 2:03:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
If he were willing to go then why not?
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/18/03 - 2:07:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well if he wanted to fine, but I wouldn't tell him what or what not to do. The word send and calling it a daycare makes it sound like you're talking about a child. I view the men that I date as equals not children.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/18/03 - 2:07:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
"Send"? No, he's a human being, not a dog. He's more than capable of deciding whether he wants to come shopping with me or not, and I'm more than happy if he chooses to come with me.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/18/03 - 2:08:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Exactly estella.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/18/03 - 2:13:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, whats the point of bringing him if youre just going to dump him off at some bar? I would just stay home and do whatever. If I had to go, then I could see doing it. Thats about what happens when we go to the mall anyways. Well... theres no bar there, but the arcade does well in a pinch. But its not like shes getting rid of me, Im sure she'd like to have me along. But I just cant stand being there by her side while she asks my opinion on this blouse or those pants.

I swear, sometimes I think she woulda been better off marrying a woman.

I think it's hilarious! The guys in the article seem to love it, I want to see if it's more for European people that are into pubs and socializing? I think most guys would much rather sit around with other guys drinking beer than having to go shopping with their wife. My husband probably wouldn't like it unless his friends were with him, he and I like shopping equally so I don't think he ever feels like I'm dragging him around

How about you reverse the question: "Would you send your women to a place like this while you went out golfing for the day?"

See how many negative responses you get out of that.

18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/9/03 - 3:17:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Obviously none so far - if someone would object to something as silly as that they have problems! I don't think it would work the opposite way though. Women don't like to hang out with other women the way guys like to hang out with just guys - I'd much rather be out golfing with the guys than shopping or at a bar with a bunch of girls
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/9/03 - 4:08:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather be doing something on my own (of my own choosing)than golfing OR being babysat at a bar so I'm not annoying my man..
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/9/03 - 4:13:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
^^That's actually what I'd prefer over anything too
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/9/03 - 9:42:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Um...who here has a man who would actually allow himself to be "sent" anywhere, anyway?
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/10/03 - 6:28:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only if he wanted to go.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 1/2/04 - 7:01:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
i would, if there aren't any chicks or any way he'd cheat on me... haha
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 2/3/04 - 11:03:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
OH hell yes.. where do I sign up?
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/18/04 - 5:41:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
If I get dumped there, I'm going to need a whole lot more than 2 beers. Why can't these men do something useful with their time, like normal men? Drink beer at home, or pretend to fix something in the garage, or do a stinkin crossword puzzle or something?
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 3/9/04 - 1:48:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
LOL yes! If I dated men that is
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/25/04 - 9:09:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
hell, send me!
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/25/04 - 9:30:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
Someone has to carry the bags and tell you that you look great! And that no, you haven't gained any weight, and yes, blue is so your color!! ;) Why would I dump that off?!
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/11/04 - 3:35:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
men have free will... if he wanted to go then i guess but im not bringing him on a leash or anything.....
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/11/04 - 3:47:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
But I want to go shopping *cries*
