This (boston.com) is an idea that will make someone a mint. Of course, if the women let their husbands stay in the 'mandergarten' while they shop, the real question is why won't they just let the men stay home, watch soccer, babysit the kids, and save the 10 euros.

Geez- if sporting events had a "Femdergarten," and described it the way this is described, the left would be screaming about sexism...

Absoluetly. This is ridiculously sexist, but I'll bet you that before long these will be all over malls in the US.

I'm going to guess that they have limited means of transportation? So if they're out running errands on the weekend, they have to do them all together?

there was an episode of married with children where all the men were at the mall sitting around holding their wives purses. that's gotta be where the idea really started.

Eh, sexism is in the eye of the beholder. I wanna know if I can get in there without a woman holding onto a receipt.

Yeah, the thought that men can be corralled so easily is sexist, but a truism as well (sadly). It is also sexist to suggest that women are prohibited from entering and enjoying said establishment.

If they build something like that, where I get a hot meal (sheppard's pie, chili, so long as it's hearty), two beers (with the opportunity to buy more beer), a nametag, a tv with a game on it, and some remote control cars to play with, and my girlfriend had to come pick me up afterward, I would have no qualms with it. Hell, I'd probably go there for my birthday.

However, I envision a sterile white room with folding chairs, an average 19" television, a deck of cards and other board games (chess and monopoly) on a card table, and the RC car described in the article. Hell, even a poster of a chick endorsing beer or some athletes would give that enough atmosphere to make it liveable, though.
