The Art of Manliness Weekly Roundup: Men’s Grill Edition

In the New York Times yesterday, there was a story about a golf club in Phoenix that has a men’s grill- a grill where only men are allowed. No ladies. It was a place the men could go to get a beer, a nice juicy steak, and talk manly talk with other men. The women were relegated to the ladies grill where old women would play bridge and shush any young whippersnappers that were too loud. Well, the women folk in Phoenix were none too happy about this, so they’ve filed a complaint with the civil rights division of the Arizona attorney general’s office claiming the facilities at the women’s grill of the golf club are inadequate compared to the men’s grill.

Well the men are up in arms about this, and what are some of them doing to counter these angry women? Well, according to the article they’re driving in golf carts up to the homes of women who are involved in the suit and peeing on their trees. Childish, not manly.

But regardless of their immature reaction, what do you think? Should men have their own places to hang out sans women?
