kiddush clubs for ladies?

we all have kiddush clubs at our shuls. even the smallest shteibel has a group of men who quietly exit davening (usually right before the rabbi's speech) to get together and "enjoy" some herring, crackers and a bottle or two of the best scotch (I say "enjoy" because I mean, seriously, does any of that stuff actually sound appealing?)
i've heard of shuls banning kiddush clubs, and i totally support that. i mean, isn't davening while under the influence kinda not within the spirit of the law? and i doubt anyone is being carded at those clubs. and more importantly, what about the idea of equal rights?
that's right - why aren't there kiddush clubs for women?!
Ok, granted, as mentioned in paragraph 1 of this herein post, the stuff that's being served at kiddush clubs aren't exactly lady-friendly.
But, why not have Ladies' Kiddush Clubs! Instead of scotch and vodka and whiskey (and anything else that tastes and smells like a urine sample), we could serve Strawberry Daquiris and Sex on the Beach and Pina Colada! Instead of herring and crackers --> mini hors d'oeuvres and Party Sandwiches.
C'mon Jewish women of America (and Canada)! Let's get this party started!

Not all of us. I can state that in my shul that is most definitely not the case.

got to say love your blog!
re: kiddush clubs, i think it is great, do you know most of the guys wouldnt have gone to shul if not for the smelly herring and eirkichel... with women it is different, the way i understand a woman can get away with not going to shul, what excuse can a guy have? he cant even complain about a stomachache before the chulent!!! oish, i miss chulent, didnt have any for a year by now i think!
