I know that many of you are wondering where to go to party in Fort Myers now that the city's iconic Ricochet club has gone the way of the wild goose. Well, the answer to that riddle; Groove Street club, located at that big shopping plaza on College Parkway just east of McGregor Blvd. Cover charge is only $5 and they have great staff, great dances, and yes Groove Street does in fact have a history of playing slow songs, too. Groove street is great for singles, couples, and groups alike. Better yet, they even sell T shirts with the Groove Street logo on it. There are, however, a couple of policies that they have. While regular, still-photo cameras are welcomed, they do unfortunately prohibit movie cameras. Also, they have a dress code that prohibits tank tops and short shorts. Regular T shirts and regular shorts are basically the minimal clothing you can wear there.

Error in gography in above post; Groove Street is actually at the shopping center right on the corner of College Parkway and Winkler street, right behind Starbucks.

Hey, people. Did you know that a bar is actually the 3rd best place to meet a boyfriend/girlfriend? In fact, the top 5 best places to meet a boyfriend/girlfriend are as follows;

#1; Friend's house

#2; Party

#3; Bar/Nightclub

#4; Church

#5; The internet

I was in Fort Myers for 10 days and was at Groove Street Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. While Friday and Saturday were great with the crowds, Thursday was extremely sparse with the people. And Thursday is Ladies' Night at Groove Street Grille and Discotheque and the club is open Thursdays from 9 pm to 3 am. Yet only about maybe 10-15 people even showed up at the club during the 3 hours I was there (9 pm to 12 midnight). And then I spoke with one of the staff and was told that, in fact, Thursday is a very empty evening there. He even told me that they are extremely lucky if they even get 40-50 people for the entire 6 hour period that the club is open Thursday evening. And with the Ricochet having closed in 2009 and obviously still up for lease, I would imagine all the ladies that had fun there should go to Groove Street.

Groove Street has a new dress code. Must have went into effect around the same time smoking was banned. Shorts and short sleeves are no longer allowed at Groove Street anymore. Guys especially are now to be covered from the neck and arms all the way down to the floor, with only the hands and head/face exposed. Also, the new dress code is more semi-formal; no more casual street clothes anymore, either. Although there is the slightest chance they might, just might, let someone in dressed as business-casual, but even that isn't very likely. Also, the club has very weak air conditioning, and absolutely no fans at all to keep people from overheating while on the dance floor.

And the club is even covering it up, too! Like they literally think they're still in North Korea! Literally another place where the tattered American flag has fallen from it's mast and where the North Korean flag may as well allready be flying in it's place, and where portraits of Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il may as well adorn every wall inside that club. Making Groove Street's new dress code known to the public is exactly the same as a North Korean citizen publicly broadcasting all over Pyongyang that Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il have both done a horrible, rotten terrible job of running North Korea. Only difference is, at least Groove Street does not, as of yet, threaten three family generations of someone who makes their new dress code known to the public. Several Facebook members have allready been heavily flamed and threatened by Groove Street for warnings posted to Groove Street's Facebook page about their new dress code. To me, that's even like a notion that making their new dress code known to the public may even as well be the equivilant of setting fire to the embalmed bodies of Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il, attempting to or even successfully blowing up Kim Il-Sung's palace, and/or even an assassination attempt on North Korea's current dictator Kim Jong-Un, all perpetrated by a citizen or group of citizens of North Korea.

Also, Groove Street has, as of lately, catered more to private parties (birthday, Bachelorette, etc) than to the general public.
