Strutting Season

Outstanding Washington Post article about New Jersey guidos from 2003 featuring none other than the guy who runs NJGuido.com. This sums it all up pretty nicely: “The guido ethos is showy, it bumps shoulders and yells. It is a hey-baby culture, in which the men are macho and the women wear spandex. When cruising in cars — a popular pastime — guidos like loud dance music and loud-looking girls. When they walk, they thrust their shoulders back and take over sidewalks.”
