    German Bar Offers Kindergarten for Men

    HAMBURG, Germany (AP) -- A German bar is offering women who want to go shopping without their partners the chance to park them at what it bills as the country's first kindergarten for men.

    For $11.80, the Nox Bar in downtown Hamburg is offering boys' games and home-improvement coaching as well as a meal and two beers for men left there for a Saturday afternoon, while women are free to shop in the city's swanky boutiques.

    So far, the "Maennergarten" has been a hit, with 20 men dumped there the first week, and 27 last Saturday, bar manager Alexander Stein said Tuesday.

    "Many of the guys see it as just a gag, but then were surprised to find they got on really well with the others," Stein said.

    He said women have been delighted to be able to get rid of their men until 6 p.m., when many German stores close for the weekend.

    The bar plans new attractions, such as miniature car racing and cocktail courses.

    "Whether we keep it going depends on who comes when the buzz dies down," Stein said. "Some of our regulars have put their head round the door and recoiled in horror."
