Bachelorette parties not welcome here

Gay bar owner Geno Zaharakis has a message for bachlorettes -- get lost.

He's posted a "No Bachelorette Parties" sign at his Cocktail bar in Chicago's gay-friendly "Boystown" neighborhood.

It seems gay bars are popular with bachelorettes.

The young ladies get a kick out of the male dancers at some gay clubs and the fact they don't get hit on there.

But Zaharakis says he loses money when the ladies of a bridal party let their hair down.

He's also making a political statement, saying it's not fair straights can marry while gays can't in many states.

But other gay bars Chicago welcome the business the bachelorettes bring.
