When model nights ruin it for everyone else

Don’t get me wrong, I know that club owners see a value in allowing Z list models free drinks and food. It’s like chumming the waters when hunting sharks, you give something and generally you get something back in return. My beef is when I take a group of friends out to Koi on a tuesday night (these are creative people, in the fashion industry) and get told that the normally available bar menu is now only for models.

Excuse me??? Since when did paying customers take a backseat to Z list models?

I’m tempted to start a “Ban Model Night” campaign

    It’s just stupid! I don’t know why would a business rather have models eating for free then having customers paying for their food. It’s just plain stupid!

    So lets seriously start showing club owners how much damage they are doing?

    Look models are part of my career, but i’m not into this fascination with them, especially the z grade ones bkk seems to be full of.

    If you start boycotting places which treat models like royalty it might work. I don’t have any issue with models/celebs getting free entry into such places, but I am a little surprised they will take away a bar menu from paying customers. How are they meant to subsidise the lives of the models/celebs without the paying customers?

    Before anyone think’s i hate models, i really don’t, but the point is that this city seems to love them more than they love themselves.

    Free entry is ok, but free drinks and food?

    PandaManiac – LOL.

    To make a real impact, how about a campaign to make everyone a model? I mean, seriously. If I have a business card with my glossy on it, saying that I AM a model and I belong to a modeling agency, who are you to refuse me freebies?

    We just need to create “an agency”, a digital camera, a computer with photoshop and MS word, a printer, and whole lotta business card paper! Then EVERYONE can be a model!

    But yeah. Model nights…psfffssshh…whatever.
