A place you don't want to be. This place may exhibit any combination of the following characteristics:
1. a high crime rate
2. a plethora of sketchy characters (aka thugs)
3. dark alleys or blind corners
4. the presence of metal detectors or rent-a-cops
5. instills a fear of you gettin' jacked
Ladies, if you have to ask a guy to walk you to your car for safety reasons (and not because you want to make out with him) ... the place is definitely shady.
I don't care that parking garage has decent lighting, it is shady from midnight to 6 am. Why else would they need a rent-a-cop?
The G-bar over in downtown is shady. Even my buddy Ian, who's pretty much a thug, got jacked there.
Ken went to a shady high school.
Really, how shady?
So shady they put metal detectors at the doors his freshmen year.
