I've noticed the take your baby to a bar thing, too. Last time, we were in a bar watching an excellent live jazz combo. Privileged hipsters bring not one but two toddlers, proceed to sit down and pour gin down their gullets while ignoring their spawn. The toddlers, who I'm sure didn't ask to come to a dank basement full of drunken adults, proceed to do toddler stuff...like chase each other around, hassle the waitstaff, and throw tantrums while lying on the boozy cement floor. You'd think management would intervene, but no...apparently throwing paying customers out is a no-no. We just did a slow burn while looking daggers at mommy and daddy dearest.
My mother would have kicked my ass if I had taken my toddler to a bar. Ah, the good old days!
