I should start out by saying that I've been to this little dive bar a few times before without any issues. However, this past Halloween something something happened that still doesn't make sense to me.
I was minding my own business, in no way was I drunk or even close to it. I come back from the bathroom and one of the ""security"" guys tells me that he saw me stumbling, that he had been watching me, that I was drunk and that I was cut off. I took me a second to realize that he was seriousl. I looked at him and soberly explained to him that I was not drunk and that I in fact did not stumble. He kicked me out regardless and went back in to notify my friends.
During this time I stood outside waiting. I talked to the bouncer for a minute, everyone could clearly see that I was obviously not drunk or even close. He pointed out the owner to me. I tried talking to him, but he said he already knew what it was about and that he couldn't overrule the decision (seriously, this is not a court, it's a dive bar!), I tried talking to him, he also must've realized I was not drunk. And dude, you're the owner, you can do whatever you want. If you see someone that's clearly not drunk and got kicked out for no good reason, you can certainly...""overrule"".
Eventually the guy came back out and gave me a second chance..(geez how generous), but he made me walk a straight line. At this point I was just laughing at the stupidity. I walked a straight line without an effort and was eventually let back in. We should've left if we hadn't paid a cover to get in.
Seriously guys, it's a bar, where you sell 22 ounce bottles of beer no less, and you're randomly kicking people out for ""looking drunk""?! You're making yourself look like a joke. At least hire some peole that can actually evaluate a situation, and admit when they were wrong. And acting like letting me back in was a huge favor you did me didn't help either.
Pros: Huge beers and drinks are cheap. Chill vibe.
Cons: Ridiculous treatment by so-called security
