Where should I begin?
Hopefully this is the first and last time I'll be tear gassed.
Happy Birthday to me! ...Not. I spent the latter part of the evening coughing up a storm because they found that TEAR GAS was the appropriate way to respond to a small confrontation on the dance floor.
We paid $800.... Not $20, not $100, but $800 for VIP seating and bottle service. That was fine. Getting there was the hard part. I understand that bouncers are supposed to act tough and put forth a façade as though they're an immovable force as to deter the riff raff. However, for a group that paid nearly $1000 for bottles that collectively cost $120 at [insert liquor store name here] down the street, you'd think they'd show at least a little bit of courtesy and respect. The bouncers told us to, "Shut the f*** up and wait" when we asked why we couldn't go in yet. The club allegedly opens at 11PM and we were told by the club manager to arrive a few minutes earlier to secure our VIP and pick our location. WE DIDN'T GET IN UNTIL 12:45AM! The night was well run-into and we hadn't even sat down yet.
Upon getting past the threshold, we were pat down as per usual. However, the lesbian attendant that checked the ladies in our party was OVERLY thorough. I call her orientation to attention not disparagingly, but because she molested (yes, molested) my sister and friends--and I'm also gay. She began checking and re-checking their private parts and chest specifically. It was abhorrent.
The only decent thing about the night is that our waitress was wonderful and courteous.
I, and the other 14 or so people I was with will NOT be revisiting this place unless it's rebuilt from the ground up. I can only surmise that LQ is run by brain dead chimpanzees, juggling bananas and flinging feces at each other instead of getting rid of whosoever mocked up their current business plan. (No offense to the chimpanzees).
