TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 7 (UPI) -- A Florida bar manager apologized for the business' Facebook post that some interpreted as promoting taking advantage of intoxicated women.

Marina Decennia, manager of Fire Bar and Grill in Tampa, said the Facebook post was made without her knowledge, WFTS-TV, Tampa, reported Thursday.

"Ladies night at Fire tonight. Ladies get $2 martinis and $3 wines. Guys get drunk ladies," the Tuesday post read.

Decennia said the post has since been deleted.

"We would never post something about taking advantage of intoxicated women. An unauthorized employee somehow got onto our Facebook and posted an inappropriate post," the manager said.

"I'm a lady. I'd never want someone to be like 'Come to Fire, where we have 3 wines and martinis and you can get into and guys can take you home.' No, absolutely not," she said.

"I'm very sorry. That's completely inappropriate," Decennia said.
