We checked out last night's launch of Play Thursdays to support some friends who were spinning and painting body art with intentions to buy a bottle. We were on the free list, but it was close to one, and the cover charge guy said the list closed at midnight and was condescending about it. Someone told him to only charge us half the cover, which was ok at best. We went straight to the bar and waited forever to get a drink while the bartender was dicking around and taking his own shots. My boyfriend asked him what was taking so long, and the bartender rudely replied, ""You can't afford it or what?"", told my boyfriend to go f**k himself, and, as we walked away from the bar, he threw ice at my boyfriend's face like a little girl. We went to the other bar across the room, but it was closed, a huge inconvenience considering the crowd size. We had not been there for more than 20 minutes and wanted to get our money back and leave, but the cover charge guy could only refer us to the owner. The owner offered us a free first round of drinks, but I definitely would have preffered our money (and, our time, what a waste!) back. It was hot as hell in there, and I saw a bunch of girls that looked under 18. Give me a break. Shame on you, Club Rio!
