Polk Street’s Kozy Kar Thinks Date Rape Is A Joke

Kozy Kar, the Nob Hill bar that plays ’70s porn on loop, has two water beds on premises and a history of respecting its patrons, has some signage hanging up that caught an Eater reader’s attention. The reader emailed the tipline late last night, writing:

“My girlfriend and I were having a drink at Kozy Kar on Polk Streettonight and noticed a sign promoting their box wine that made light of date rape. We mentioned it to the bartender and he quickly dismissed our concerns, saying, ‘I’m not the owner; I can’t take the sign down.”

The sign says, ‘One sip brings back memories of beach parties, Camaros, Eddie money, feathered hair and date rape. Oh, the memories … it’s like high school all over again … but better!’

Just want to let your readers know that this type of misogynistic bullshit goes on still.”

When reached by telephone, Benny, who is listed on Kozy Kar’s website as handling private events for the bar, told Eater, “Then they don’t need to be in our bar. The bar doesn’t take itself seriously. It’s a big joke. Everything about it is a joke.” When asked if he thought it was okay to joke about date rape, Benny hung up.

So that’s where they stand on that.
