A sailor in full dress uniform was turned away from The Standard Hotel in New York by a bouncer over the weekend.
Yes, Memorial Day Weekend.
The anonymous Navy Officer was decked out in her all-whites trying to get into the Top of The Standard lounge with three of her friends who happened to be wearing civilian attire when she was told she wasn't allowed in for breaking the venue's dress code.
And while her white uniform was technically against the lounge's cocktail rules, the sailor and her companions tried to explain that military uniforms trump all other forms of clothes — especially since she was in full dress.

However, no one at the Standard helped the situation, and now the entire hotel is in hot water for disrespecting our service men and women during Fleet Week, of all times!

Oh no! Is he okay?
Suge Knight had to be rushed to the hospital over the weekend after falling not once but twice while he was in jail.
[ Photos: Celebrities With Multiple DUI Arrests! ]
According to sources, Suge passed out behind bars, was taken to the medical ward, and then fainted again during the middle of an X-ray.
According to Suge's lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, he was transferred to a local hospital.
In addition, sources claim that Suge is suffering from a blood clot in his lung, and that the current theory is that the clot formed because Suge couldn't take his blood thinner medication in jail.
Suge and Katt Williams were arrested for robbery after allegedly stealing a female photographer's camera.

This Alaskan state senator must be out of his mind!
State Sen. Pete Kelly apparently wants women to take PREGNANCY TESTS before they drink at bars to try and curb the amount of babies with fetal alcohol syndrome. He wants the state to fund these bar administered pregnancy tests, too!
It's like he has no idea when April Fool's Day is, because this HAS to be a joke!
Here's what he said:

Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't! Here is a recipe for making the classic chocolate coconut candy at home, anyway you like it! Get creative by adding different nuts or flavors (like orange or almond extract) or a sprinkle of pink salt!
3 cups shredded coconut (put aside 3 tablespoons for garnish)
1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups powdered sugar
3 cups chocolate chips
Combine coconut, sweetened condensed milk and powdered sugar in large bowl, and mix until combined. Pour into greased 9×13 baking pan, and freeze until firm enough to cut - about an hour. Cut into small squares. Melt chocolate chips in oven proof bowl (I'll either microwave for a few minutes, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth, or by placing the bowl over a small pot of hot water). Dip the coconut bars in chocolate, place on wax paper to cool, and sprinkle with a dash of remaining coconut, or even chopped nuts. For that picture perfect touch, purchase mini muffin wrappers at the grocery story - they are the perfect size for candies.

McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman are with the rest of their gold winning teammates on the Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics right now.
While they were recently in Ontario, California over the weekend both girls were injured!
McKayla was hurt when she fell during a dismount after a simple routine on the bars.
She was hurt enough that she had to be carried out of the arena by medics.
Aly was doing a very complicated bars move called the Shaposhnikova.
During the move she fell on her stomach, on a part of the concrete floor that wasn't padded!
Check out the video (above) to see the girls both get injured one after the other.

Either bars are going to start losing business or doggy daycare facilities will become a booming industry.
People like their dogs, but they also like their drinking and now they're being forced to make a choice.
New York City has always had regulations in place banning dogs from bars but they were never really enforced… until recently.
The health code inspectors have been cracking down on the bar owners.
Service dogs are still allowed in, and it's not like service dogs are any cleaner than regular dogs, so we don't get what the big deal is.
We also wouldn't be surprised if we see a dog bar open in NYC, that serves dogs, and just happens to also have alcohol for their companions. LOLz!

Designing duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have created their own cocktail.
The drink, which was made in partnership with Bacardi's vermouth brand Martini, will be debuted at the Dolce & Gabbana men's fashion week in Milan.
Along with the alcoholic beverage, D&G have also opened up bars in both their Milan and Shanghai stores.
Shopping and drinking!? What a great way to get people to buy clothes!
