Daron thinks a club-like environment will bring out the child in anyone.

on May 23, 2012

I’ve seen nightclubs transform otherwise intelligent grown men into children. Forget the booze and the loud music. It’s the environment. The black lights, the neon, the mirrors, the chrome, the velvet-upholstered sofas, the crystal -- for some reason, this type of excess lavishness seems to bring out our most basic primordial instincts. 

Throughout my 20s, I probably spent a couple dozen evenings in nightclubs with my friends. And without fail, a couple guys would inevitably devolve into children and humiliate themselves. I’ll spare you the details, but the nightclub always seemed to bring out their inner 6-year-old. So this begs the question -- if the nightclub environment inspires grown men to act like uncontrollable 6-year old children, how would it impact an actual 6-year old? Clearly, you can’t bring a child to a nightclub (Rosie can confirm this for me). But you can bring the nightclub to the child. Just ask Jessica and Carlo.
