Coyote Ugly Saloon — the New York City bar that inspired the movie, which in turn inspired a number of franchise bars bearing the same name — is about to open a branch in Accordion City’s “Clubland” area.
The National Post reports that Don Rodbard, president of the King-Spadina Residents Association has these particular concerns about Coyote Ugly that suggest that he’s as clueless about life in the big city as the pro-nightclub people suggest:
“Of course we have concerns, Coyote Ugly, yeah,” Mr. Rodbard said. “They don’t have a good image. 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.”
How does this differ from any other singles bar? Or many house parties, school dances, debutante cotillions and even church socials?
