A Bar Gives Women Free Drinks Based on Their Weight

November 18, 2019



A bar called the Fusion Club in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, is offering a new special: Women get free drinks based on how much they weigh. And the chubbier they are, the more free drinks they get. We had to do some converting of metric system and currencies to figure out the exchange rate. For every pound a woman weighs, she gets around 12.3 cents worth of drink credits. So a woman who weighs 110 pounds would get roughly $13.50 worth of free drinks. A woman who weighs 200 pounds would get $24.60 worth of drinks. Women have the option to step on a scale at the entrance to the bar, or just share their own weight. And they can show it to the bartender discreetly so they don't have to publicly reveal their weight. The owner of the club says they're running the promotion through the end of the year because, quote, "We wanted the ladies to surprise their partners and friends that it's good to gain weight."
