In the fourth episode of the NBC mockumentary/cringe comedy darling Parks and Recreation, the series’ main character, Leslie Knope (played by SNL alum Amy Poehler), infiltrates a group of her male coworkers who get together and drink in their office building’s courtyard every Tuesday after work. The episode, titled “Boy’s Club,” follows the hard-working, honest, and almost painfully earnest Leslie—Deputy Director of the Parks Department in the fictional city of Pawnee, Indiana—as she pushes her way into the Boy’s Club one Tuesday evening.
On property paid for by taxpayer dollars—Pawnee City Hall—Leslie’s male counterparts regularly and openly drink alcohol. Knowing this is against the rules but too overwhelmed by her desire to be accepted as a member of the club (due to the city’s history of male-dominated leadership and a crush she has on one of her male colleagues), Leslie joins the guys in the courtyard.
