commented on Bumbershoot Will Go On, One Reel Announces Partnership with Showbox/AEG
If tkc is as smart and connected as he thinks he is, his bitterness is clouding his reality. Three letters, AEG.
One Reel partnered with the biggest concert promoter in the world. The festival doesn't continue without the bills getting paid and AEG, didn't show up without a check book.
Yeah, they handled that in the shittiest way possible. They turned off the phones and went on vacation. Then, clearly, laid off their PR people and let this Stone guy talk to the press, with a huge chip on his shoulder.
I know lots of people who are dealing with One Reel. And, if they are not half whits, they are breathing a sigh of relief at the involvement of Heather Smith and AEG.
But, by all means, tkc, hold your grudge. If there is money to be made, at Bumbershoot 2015, you'll be back
And for those claiming they, somehow, fucked up Summer Nights at the Pier, how long did you think it was going to last without a pier? That was the best venue in town and when that pier was condemned, it marked the true end of that concert series.
4Th of July? First, who gives a shit, and second, you try finding sponsorship money during a worlf financial collapse.

Hey #2, thanks for being the uptight douche that I've come to love about the Block Party, and part of the reason I'll never attend again. Future of the Left was the last great thing I saw there and that was enough for me. Sloppy drunks, Cap Hill "Why are you in my neighborhood" douches and douchettes, and corralled people crammed from fence to fence.
Thanks, but no thanks.

Seems many haven't heard the other side of the story. Below is a review by the 'yuppie scum' who was so insulting to such a nice bartender. Its from Yelp. There are numerous reviews there stating how awful the service is. Ignored by staff, is a term used in many of them.
I, also, read an older article about this woman getting two men arrested for sexual harrasment, against a gay friend of hers, they were incarcerated, had to post bail, then she and her friend decided that, maybe, they'd accused the wrong men. Sound familiar. This woman is the true scum, and there is, documented, evidence all over the place, including her Facebook page. Who cares how much you weigh. You're still a bitch.
My girlfriend and I had without question the worst restaurant/bar experience of our lives at this place over the weekend. I don't even know where to begin.
I've been to the attached bar called Chacha drinking with friends a few times in the past, but had never tried Bimbos. I had heard they had some decent mexican-ish food so my girlfriend and I stopped by to grab a bite.
From the moment we sat down we felt like we had just entered a clubhouse we weren't invited to. The woman who was supposed to be serving us seemingly ignored us for 25 minutes. Granted it was somewhat busy, but she certainly saw us. A few of her friends were there and she kept chatting them up... all the while shooting us glances as we uncomfortably tried to get her attention.
After close to a half hour she finally asked if we wanted any drinks. We told her our drink order and she immediately walked off before I could even get a chance to ask about the food menu... I wasn't sure if it was going to be another half hour until we had a chance to place our food order so I kind of shouted "wait!" as she was fleeing to fill our drink order. Bad move, I guess... she turned around looking more than a little peeved that I had interrupted her. I asked if we could place a food order before she left... she slapped a menu in front of me and I quickly ordered a couple tacos. She suggested we upgrade to "double decker" tacos (which apparently are held together by beans... which my girlfriend isn't a fan of)... We declined the upgrade. The waitress looked at us like we were fools... "It's free"... My girlfriend responded with a joke about counting her calories... the waitress countered with some snarky comment about "you could use a little extra weight" (in retrospect this might have been a compliment, but my girlfriend has struggled with anorexia and didn't appreciate it)... We again declined and once again the waitress stormed off looking agitated. Honestly considered leaving at this point.
About 10 minutes go by and we still haven't received our drinks. Waitress is back to chatting with her friends. I flag her down and she literally rolled her eyes made a hand gesture as if to say "yeah, yeah simmer down... one second"... I reminder her about our margaritas... she huffs off, and brings them a few minutes later.
Finish our drinks... wait... wait... wait... no food. Wait some more... wait... Consider flagging down the waitress again, but think better of it. Luckily after close to an hour our tacos come out...
Double decker tacos. Wait, what?! ... Honestly wouldn't have been a big deal, but my girlfriend has a serious problem with beans and she's pretty angry at this point... so she starts giving the waitress a little attitude back and complains about the double decker tacos. The waitress looks at my girlfriend like she's utterly insane. Says something to the extent of "it's free... why are you complaining?" (meaning the "double decker" upgrade) ... It isn't what we ordered! ... I somewhat intervene and say it's no big deal... we can just peel off the "double decker" layer and the beans, but I obviously understood my girlfriend's frustration. Waitress responds with "good idea" and begins to walk off... I stop her once again and order our last couple drinks and ask to close out our bill (which to her credit she promptly retrieved for us... though clearly begrudgingly)...
Never once did she offer an apology. Never once did she offer to waive part of the bill for the mistake. In fact, she actually overcharged us by putting the wrong drinks on our bill... I didn't have the strength to really fight her on it (and didn't want to wait another hour to get it resolved). Horrible service. Horrible Experience. It was almost like "you idiots should be lucky I even served you at all"...
1 Star. However, If 10 dollar margaritas, free (mandatory) double decker upgrades and dehumanizing service are your thing... Go for it!
