Classy Times and Bad Signs at the Hong Kong

If you’ve been to the Hong Kong in Boston, the Faneuil Hall bar known for its scorpion bowls, karaoke, and wild clientele, you know that it’s not exactly the prime venue for a classy evening.

So that’s why I wasn’t terribly surprised to see this sign there last weekend:

The text:

LOST COAT TAG POLICY

If you loose or can not produce your coat check tag, you must way until the close of business, to claim your belongings.

My reaction:

NOT OKAY!

That’s the last time I go out without my Sharpie.  This picture will have to do for now.  But I plan on returning.

  1. I could go for two scorpion bowls about now.

  2. The weird thing about the lose/loose error is that it seems to be a generational thing. I’ve been teaching for 10 years, and I have noticed students making this error much more frequently now than they used to. The other one I see (if you’ll grant me a bit of flexibility on topic), which I truly do not understand, is the complete inability to spell the word “definitely” correctly: they all spell it “defiantly.” I can’t figure this out.

  3. “If you’ve been to the Hong Kong in Boston… you know that it’s not exactly the prime venue for a classy evening.”

    Beg to differ! Hong Kong is the epitome of klass, and if you ever mosey down to SRQ, I’ll show you some REAL dive bars, haha!
