I’ve been to the Glass Slipper once. We went because of the Yelp reviews. I wasn’t as drunk as I could have been, and as the only clothed woman in the establishment, felt the side glances from the other patrons somewhat acutely. “No place for a woman,” a man kept growling [into his $9 beer]. […]

You could say it’s almost like East German training where you’re purposely […]
