    "Cultural Competition Theory" - By Sheldon and Peachez from (Keys to the Vip)

    Cultural Competition Theory
    Brothers,
    How ya doing? Finally got a chance to post. Its been crazy hectic, but I thought was really important to contribute to the community that started it all for me personally. The knowledge that is shared on this forum is fantastic!Furthermore, the knowledge that I have acquired from studying the Venusian arts have truly changed my life. Big props and shout-outs to ||||| who I met on the set of MTV Live in Canada. He really held out down on the show when he was being hit with a barage of accusatory questions by the host Alliyah-Jasmine! Don't worry |||||, I happened to run into her at a bar after the show and I set the record straight. A friendship as also been sparked out of that chance meeting as well!
    Anyways, heres our post! Tell us what you think guys!!
    Cities that have high immigration are the toughest places to pick-up women. The majority of new immigrants are males. Men typically leave other countries to establish themselves. Women are a lot less likely to move on their own to new countries. Women that come to a new country are typically with a family or their significant other.
    Whether the men that move to the new city are single or not, if they came to the new country alone they will be trying to meet women in the new city. This creates a situation in cities of this nature where in the clubs you see a greater ratio of men to women. These men are all working to pick-up the same women.
    Additionally, when women are continually picked up they have less tolerance for the next pursuer. Women in these cities do not feel the same pressure to meet a man, as they are bombarded everyday with possible suitors.
    Another reason that women in highly immigrated cities are more difficult to pick-up is they have seen various techniques from around the world. The more variations of pick-up styles that you come into contact with, the more difficult it is for guys to come across as original. Every culture in the world has subtleties in the way that the men relate to their women. This makes for plethora of different looking games and approaches.
    The final reason deals with a theory that we have coined as ‘Defensive Self Image’. Immigrant communities within metropolitan areas often engage in a process of ethnocentric behaviour. They tend to live together, eat together and socialize within that specific region while alienating others. What is odd about this behaviour is that although they attempt to encourage isolative behaviour, everyone within these communities knows that success can only be achieved by acquiring the resources that are available to the greater population. For example, Toronto has been ranked as one of the most difficult cities in the world to pick-up due to its strong multicultural make-up. Within this city it has become widely accepted and known that a Chinatown, Little Portugal, Little Italy and etc. are all mini-communities that exist under the greater umbrella of Toronto.
    These communities provide a sense of belonging and safety for new immigrants, and allow them to establish themselves before heading out into the greater parts of the city to pursue their dreams. The problem that arises daily is that you have thousands of individuals heading into the workforce from different cultures all competing for the same resources. Naturally, what occurs out of this phenomenon is the resentment and jealousy between the daily winners and losers. Unfortunately, psychological issues begin to mutate and individuals start theorizing about why they’re failing. Their conclusions usually involve a loathing hate directed towards anyone who is unlike them.
    However, because we are so called civilized people in civilized era. Many of these individuals refrain from lynching and burning crosses in protest of the other peoples who are so called ‘stealing their jobs and their women/men and etc’! What they do intern is engage in a ‘cold war’ of sorts, were there is underlying feeling of contest and competition. It is here where the true fun begins.
    Because individuals are constantly feeling self conscious about their lot in life, they adjust their behaviour to make sure that all times they are putting their best foot forward professionally and socially. Socially is where OUR greatest concern lies because this adjusted behaviour has been having a direct effect on how successful men are in their attempts to seduce females.
    With this set of circumstances in place the tension that looms over a society at all levels is almost palpable. People often walk around with their guards up, afraid of being exposed as inferior or even worse – undesirable! It is this self-consciousness that created a less then conducive situation for seduction. Women specifically, feel a greater sense of competition because they have the added stress of remaining attractive while remaining competitive within the capitalist framework!
    NOW, enter the club scene. A mix of women from different backgrounds jamming the local hotspot vying for the attention of a male they deem desirable. However, they can’t truly be themselves because they have an image to defend. An image of perceived and trumped up superiority.
    Solution to this problem you ask? Neg theory and DHV - brought to you by our friend and fellow Torontonian - Mystery!
    Stay tuned for more theories to help combat this phenomenon

    I don't know why I didn't see this section of the forum sooner. This is what I do in life. Every time a tourist comes to Southern California, one of the main things they ask for is give them a listing of the places to go out and I know what they mean is fun clubs/bars etc. There is nothing that excites me more than sharing these places to people besides going there or taking them there myself. After all I would love to run into the same courtesy if I visited a region of the world I had no knowledge of. I would like to give this thread my own contribution by supplementing info on all the venues I come across in Southern California.

    Inland Empire
    Orange County
    Los Angeles
    San Diego

    For more SoCal listings look up http://www.niteguidemag.com/ for an online view of the magazine. The magazine updates new listings every month and reviews them. They are trying to be the official magazine to the night guide life in SoCal right now. You can pick up a physical copy in many clubs in OC, San Diego, LA, and certain ones in IE.

    Aside from the magazine I want to supply my own reviews and listings to put together a more complete picture of the SoCal scene. If the NiteGuide company stumbles across this post, may it help them as well. There is a huge community of potential customer base in these forums for them too. Just credit me and keep my identity to Drunktext.

    I'll start with the Inland Empire, my hometown. We don't get a lot of publicity and even people who grew up here are lost as to where to go.

    We aren't the busiest region in SoCal when it comes to the night life. The recession hit most businesses around here especially hard. Venues and clubs are built up and torn down the next day. Businesses are destroyed by their own promoters who are bribed out by other businesses. Despite all that, many investors still look into the IE region as an undiscovered gold mind that could one day yield a lot of money for them - once they figure out how to manage this uncharted region of tribal like warfares between scattered businesses out here.

    But if you think the IE is a backwards region of only dirt people, you will be surprised by the bustling scene that occurs under the nose of many locales and missed out by passerby tourists. Find the right places during the right times and you could have a very memorable experience unique to the Inland Empire. Look, speak and ask around you. That is what we are all here to have developed.

    To read this guide properly, imagine the listings following subsequently from one listing to another like you as if you travelling from one bar to the next. They are meant to be read in order in other words.

    I posted this in another thread before I saw this sticky. Cut, paste and edited:

    Riverside (Downtown),

    Sevillas: Sevillas is an ok club down Riverside on Mission. It was known for it's Salsa lessons; and colleges that offered salsa classes would take their students down here. Most people in the IE have been to Sevillas or heard of Sevillas at one point. The club was once an 18 over club before they bought a liqueur license and decided to make money off of alcohol rather than the 18-20 bracket. It invited a whole new crowd of customers. The new policy alienated a lot of the younger college age students who used to frequent this place. Themes like 80s night were popular among hipsters. As the younger crowd once excluded began to hit their legal ages, the old customer base of Sevillas return. There three entrances here: The top shelf is usually rented out to private parties and hosts one bar. The right door is your typical downtown restaurant in the area. The middle door is the main course. Most clubbing occurs here. There are two bars inside on each side of the wall in a rectangular room. It has a sizable dance floor. You'll occasionally find attractive women here, but I've rarely seen anything above an HB7 there. There are lot of places to go to in the IE that are better than Sevillas though. Walk down town and all you have to do is but ask.

    Cover Charge 5-10$

    Marios: If you travel a little further down town (on Mission), you'll find a little hidden gem of a restaurant called Marios. This place gets packed on club nights and most of the hotties are concentrated here. HB ratios and ranking get a big boosting from Sevillas. HB 7s and 8s show up here regularly. Saw two stunning HB 10s last time I was here. On regular nights, it's an Italian restaurant. On weekends they open the back door to their backyard which is walled in except for a door that connects to the alley. A second bartender tends the outside crowd. Very mixed group of people from all the bars here. Classy place.

    Cover Charge None

    Behind Marios, on University street, is a tiny strip where 4 bars and a coffee shop are linked together. During the first Friday of every month they have an Art Walk where the town is filled with pedestrians and artsy fartsy types of girls if you're into that.

    Smoke Shop/Lake Alice: The first bar directly behind Marios is a Smoke Shop/Bar. They play Jazz and House here. I only stop here to buy cigarettes since I think the setting here is not suitable for gaming because the tables and chairs are setup where the stage is the focus and not socialization. The bar is a tiny slab of wood with usually 5-6 old people (graying men and women) sitting there. Right next door though is Lake Alice. This place more resembles a sports bar. I've gamed here a couple times but the crowd here can be a little rowdy. They have bikers and other bros as regulars here. Fights do break out here so take caution. I always have a good chat with the manager/bartender here though. This place has the strongest bitch shields because of the type of guys that come in here all the time.

    Cover Charges None

    Worthington's: Across the street are two more bars. Worthington's attracts more of the social crowd. It's a laid back bar with an outdoor patio to smoke. No bikers or bros here. There are two pool tables for those who like pool. A lounge room with sofas is connected to the bar where bands come in and play anything from soft mellow guitar to screaming acoustic guitars. Sometimes an annoying DJ that is friends with someone who works at Worthington's comes in with his equipment. Everyone groans because he plays his music so loudly, no one could hear you including the bartender. Hipsters come here a lot. Women having a girl's night out come here a lot. A lot of the women that come here have been openly flirty in my experience.

    Cover Charge None

    Gay Bar: Then next door to Worthington's is the gay bar. Every bar needs to hopped for a complete night. The gay bar is no exception to straight, gays, bis, trans etc.. It's like every other bar in the area except with more gays and poetry nights. They have a dance floor that takes up about 1/3 of the main room which is nice since no other bars in the vicinity, besides Sevillas which is up town more, has a dance floor. Women put down their bitch shields here since they feel safer around so many gays according to one wing. My experience dictates that if you they don't know whether you're gay or straight, they don't care except that you have a penis to grind on so dance the night away with them and game until both of you forget it was even an issue (Make sure her hands aren't unusually large for her body size since estrogen pills can get rid of their manly voices, adams apple, rough skin, and hairy bodies while giving them curvier bodies; and surgery takes care of their boobs and groins. Their vaginas also can't lubricate naturally but if you've gotten that far then it's probably better not to know. But don't worry you're not alone. For every 100 girl a guy has had sex with, out of that number at least 2 weren't born females . The good thing is that it's not a common issue out here at all like it is out in LA or the OC but just to be sure. People are more natural out here.)

    Cover Charge None

    Overall my two favorite spots are Marios on club nights and Worthingtons on average for most nights. On weekends I prefer the gay bar over Sevillas. On Thursdays I'll go to Sevillas over the gay bar. My least favorites here are Lake Alice and the Smoke Shop.

    Noteworthy mentions*

    Back to the Grind: Then you have the coffee shop next to the gay bar which closes early but attracts people during the day. The place is a gallery for displaying art. Great place to take out on 2nd day and awe them with your taste for art. Downstairs is another gallery of art and a pool table. Sometimes they have performances down here. I've taken countless girls for dates/photoshoots here because it's more than just a coffee shop - you're also sight seeing. There are also two museums in the are I usually walk over to afterwards.

    Redlands (including downtown)

    Down the 91 freeway, towards San Bernardino, you'll find one of the best bar hopping places in the IE. This place has been compared to bar hopping in Venice Beach. Exit the 10 and head east until you see Orange. Exit, go past the stop sign until you hit a light and make a right. Park at the CVS store.

    You are now in Redlands. Many HBs fill the streets and clubs/bars here and you won't have trouble spotting an 8 or 9 here.

    Barhoppers have a name for this district of the town. They call it the 'Redlands Crawl' because you'll be crawling on your knees by the end of the night. Come here on a Friday or Saturday for a guaranteed large crowd of people.

    The Vault: Typically people start from one end of town and end up on the other side. Me personally, I start with The Vault on the south end of town (right if you're exiting CVS). This place consists of two indoor bars, separated by a closed off alley where people dance and bands play music. Skip the first indoor bar if you're going to buy alcohol and go to the one a few steps down the alley. I recommend this bar because the bartender gets entertainingly drunk (read my field reports) and I've gotten away with several free drinks. Friendly crowd and since everything is set up very linearly from one bar to the other, it is easy to do over the shoulder indirect approaches here.

    Cover Charge None

    The Underground: Bar hop up north and on the second street light, make a right. Open some pedestrians or two for "The Underground" bar and they will point you to a building that leads straight underground. A lot of dining tables here with a bar that overlooks the entire room. Relaxing place to sit and talk with a social group if the music isn't too loud. Ok place.

    Cover Charge None

    Charlie's Jewels: Exiting the Underground, you'll want to swing by Charlie's Jewels (aka Chuck's Nuts) before you head over to Romeros. It's located a street light up north, if you return back to the main street. It sits on the corner across from CVS. I hear lot of bad things about this place, mainly that it attracts rowdy customers and pricey alcohol. Simple solution is order water until you get to the next bar. I haven't had any bad experiences with the customers here yet. The bar is situated like a box sitting in the middle of the room. There's a dance area on the right. The women tend to come isolated here even when they're with friends to wait at the bar to be mingled with. These particular women range from 25-35, have good income jobs and are anywhere from a 5-HB8. The higher average HB groups, from HB7-9 here and younger crowd (21-27) circle around each other talking amongst themselves. One of two places that serves Mohitos (herb minty drink) in the area.

    Cover Charge None

    Irish Pub: Up the strip is an Irish Pub. I've been here once and the crowd didn't appeal to me. All I remember about this place is that it has two stories.

    Cover Charge None

    The next two bars usually optional in my bar hopping rotation and I usually skip them.


    Romeros: Romeros serves late night pizza slices if you're hungry but it's a tiny bar and doesn't attract many customers.

    Cover Charge None

    Flaming Flamingo: Next door is the Flaming Flamingo (aka the Dirty Bird), a run down bar that accepts only cash. Guys here are tattooed up and look like they're on steroids. A regular's bar that attracts a niche group in the area. People use this place to traverse in and out to the boiling room. I know I that's the only reason I use it for.

    Cover Charge None

    Boiling Room: Exit the back door. Behind the back alley that runs parallel to the main street is the boiling room. Most people end up here by the end up of the night. It gets pretty packed and when it does, they form a line to get in. On the busy nights a second bar will be set up outside and is cash only. Walking space is minimal. The music is really loud so I just end up dancing here. Dancing with every random girl is fun and is hilarious when you're drunk here. Lots of HBs end up here. Security guards are enforced here. It's basically like a club.

    Cover Charge None

    Mikans: If you trace back all the way to the beginning right after you exited the freeway, there is a Sushi Restaurant called Mikans at the stop sign. Stop by here on a Monday night and they turn the upstairs into a club night. They own Monday nights.

    Cover Charge None

    From my most to least favorite experiences with these bars: 1) Boiling Room 2) The Vault 3) Charlie's Jewels 4) The Underground 5) Mikans 6) Romeros 7) Irish Pub 8) The Flaming Flamingo

    *Noteworthy places outside the downtown strip:

    Revolutions: Across the freeway, if you go under the bridge and on the next street make a left. Go down until you see Revolutions on the left. This used to be a very popular club when it first opened under the name Rock N Saddle. It's the only real club in the area IMO. The business is being out promoted by it's own promoters to other businesses in Redlands. It will be shut down soon, but it's worth a visit if you're in town. They have a mechanical bull there.

    Cover Charge Usually free for women before 11 and 10-40$ for guys

    Gentleman's Club: It's next door neighbor is Larry Flynt's Hustler club. This is a strip bar that serves alcohol. Very good looking girls when I used to come here two years ago. Most of them were young and in their twenties, clean looking and smelling. 2$ steaks on Sundays. As with all strip clubs, spend at your own risk.

    Cover Charge $5 before 7pm. 15$ after 7pm.

    Dances $20

    Topless on stage only

    Canton Bistro: Continue back on the street in the direction you were originally heading before you stopped at Revolutions/Larry Flynt's Hustler Club. On Alabama, make a right. Go over the bridge and past the freeway. On the left side shopping center there is a Starbucks. Behind Starbucks is Canton Bistro, an Asian restaurant/club at night. I have not been here on club nights yet and my company is still in the process of making business with them. They are one of Revolution's competitors.

    Cover 10-15$

    --

    I'm confident that Ranch Cucamonga has some pretty nice joints as well. It's an upscale town like a mini Orange County. The Victoria Garden mall is an outdoor mall that attracts a lot of attractive young women in the area. There are a couple of bars in there, including the Yardhouse. I'll give a more extensive report after I explore the town more.

    Ontario Mills is down the freeway. An ok town with a decent size mall that attracts lots of attractive women as well. Not as upscale as Rancho's Victoria Gardens however. There's a Jungle Bar inside, with the whole Jungle Theme. I'll look into this town after Rancho. Has potential.



    My next set of listings will be on Orange County.

    ----
    *This post will be edited as numerous times as needed. I'll update this list and revise the listings with more details in the future. I know some listings are lacking and needs a make-over, but I'll plug those in when I have more time. This was just a brief intro in-between my studies right now. I just wanted to get those names out. I'd love to compile together a complete and detailed response to people who don't know where to go in the IE/are afraid of the dirt people .

    **Don't hesitate to shoot me a tell with your information if anyone wants to go out winging in the IE region.

    ***This isn't a professional review . Although I work for a company that helps venue seekers find places to go, I'm not a writer nor an editor.
