Coyote Moderately Attractive

coyoteugly.jpgThe National Post is reporting today that Coyote Ugly––the raunchy, almost-a-strip-club-bar that inspired a Jerry Bruckheimer movie that everyone, including Piper Perabo, forgot about five years ago––will open up its first Canadian “saloon” next year at 220 Adelaide Street West.
Coyote Ugly is upfront about its intentions: on their website, the bar explains the “business plan” of its first owner, Lil’ Lovell, was “beautiful girls + booze = money.” The organization’s slogan is “Don’t Just Get Drunk Get Ugly,” so it only makes sense that they’ve chosen the entertainment district––an ugly cultural vacuum––as their first home in the great white north.
Don Robard, the King-Spadina Residents Association president, told the Post that he had concerns about the bar’s “image”––namely, that “the impression the world has is that this place is where you go to get drunk and pick up chicks if you’re a guy and pick up guys if you’re a chick.” Which, well, makes it no different from almost all the other bars and clubs in the area, though this one comes with just a smidge more misogyny. Or maybe, actually, having half-naked bartenders stand up on tables, dance, and serve alcohol in exchange for money from men is actually a smidge less misogynist.

    I have the greatest respect for bartenders who are fast, friendly and creative. The ones who get by on boob jobs and cut-off shorts? Not so much.

    Ugh. Coyote Ugly is just the Walt Disney version of a boobie bar. Why go there when Toronto has its fair share of strip clubs where you can see the real thing?

    But at Coyote Ugly it’s always genuinely spontaneous!

    Oh great. This place is overrated as all get up. While living in Atlanta, I had the fortune to go to the one in the Buckhead area. Talk about overpriced. I went to go buy a Budweiser, a domestic beer, and it cost me almost over $7. Needless to say that was the first and last time I ever went there.

    Quick research: check out the website for the Coyote Ugly chain.
    Does it seem kind of funny to you that none of the women in the Flash intro are particularly hot? I mean, they’re obviously attractive, but more in a corn-fed, brain-dead, my-goal-in-life-was-to-become-a-fashion-model-but-I-got-turned-down kind of way.

    So Robarts no longer has concerns? He’s been appeased, has he? That would be a first. That residents’ association is a wet blanket.

    Well if those are the gals that are supposed to help me part with my money, sorry about their luck eh … lol … not a place where people not only get drunk but get ugly, I see with the Hostesses they have the ugly part down, just need the fools to go there and get drunk now lol …. I just prefer good looking women not Surgically Implanted and Sculpted, just something about water in bags that push out those bras out don’t appear attractive for some reason ….
