  1. I swear if I was still young and frequenting the bar scene I would wear a thong on the outside of my pants! Take that establishments!

  2. Lol the Dome would hate me, being in a wheelchair, mostly what i wear is sweat pants/jeans/ cargo shortsor pants, hoodies/tshirts, and running shoes or Croc’s..

    A few places here where I am forced to live now, have same policy, they lost my business right away.
