Ira, come to LA, you will see many hip fifty-ish year olds.

Some born in the 1950's: Iman Christie Brinkley, Sting

Fifty is the new 30!

please lighten up spy...i was only saying that when a club becomes the talk of a website whose average age is probably 50 and whose idea of hip is removing the 'fanny pack', it's not so cool. even being the talk of thorn tree would make many hip club owners cringe...but fodor's!?!?!? insert requisite smiley here

and yes, i have been to both bed supper and buddha...not such a big deal as these are both huge tourist attractions in their respective cities....visited by probably millions.

i was only trying to poke a little fun at ourselves. insert another requisite smiley here

and i totally agree with NThea...if it makes you feel good to go there, then it is a good thing. most of the hottest clubs are well off limits to mere mortals (and certainly to almost all accountants and lawyers in their 40s and 50's) so why not go to the more accessible ones like buddha and bsc and have a good time....and with places like buddha and bsc, it's easy to pretend you are in a hip club...as long as you don't look to closely at the other customers....running into martha from minnesota might ruin it for you. final requisite smiley

Let me try to understand this.
I believe (probably will be wrong but I KNOW someone will correct me...)
Was it Mark Twain or Will Rogers who said, "I don't want to belong to a club who would like someone like me in."

Is this the same theory?

As long as you take your Vitamin B12, Lipitor, Lotrel, Flomax or Hormone Therapy.

If anyone wants to have the Buddha Bar experience and they're in the area of Evian, they just opened one in the new Hilton Spa hotel there.

Gee Ira... I'm well over fifty
(okay, I'm sixty) and I don't take any of that stuff ! Are you feeling a bit out of sorts today ?

oh... what are lotrel and flomax ?

Ira,

You got yourself into this one, Buddy. Now you have to explain to our female friends what Flomax is all about for all of us over the hill males.

Never understood the appeal of trendy clubs anyway. Give me a local dive with no TV and the jukebox set low so you can carry on a conversation and I'm happy. If the beer is good.

Reminds me of an old New Yorker cartoon -- from about twenty years ago. It shows a middle-aged man plodding down the street wearing an overcoat and holding a briefcase, a glum expression on his face.

The caption reads: "Man born the same year as Mick Jagger."

And my response, walk, is, if you actually HAVE been to these places, once, and you find them so tired and boring, and it just doesn't make you feel good to go there, well, then don't go-those of us who DO like these places, (particularly the performance art at Bed) will continue to hang out here, thus continuing the tradition, and contributing to their longevity (insert smiley here).
