If Cheers is the bar where everyone knows your name, then Club Bounce is the one where everyone knows your weight.
"Club Bounce is a size-acceptance nightclub," said club owner Lisa Marie Garbo, 40. "People of larger shapes and sizes can go and feel comfortable, accepted and desired and not feel like they're second-class citizens for being overweight."
Garbo, who says she's a distant cousin of the Hollywood legend Greta, believes that overweight people are the last group against which discrimination is still accepted.
"There's no sensitivity, there's no understanding," she told the paper. "[People] can make fun of you and nothing will happen to them for it."
That is heavy.
