IS it 1930? Because I thought that a black person could go out to a bar and hang out with friends and NOT get drama from the front door staff. First, even though I had just watched 7 white guys in baggy clothes and backwards caps walk in the door, somehow my "Lucky Charms" hat and flare leg blue jeans and black boots weren't part of the dress code. After that stupidity ended and I was let in, we walked up to the bartender. Now I tried to get her attention for 10 minutes and while she waited on two different groups of white females who had come to the bar after me, she finally deigned me worthy of her attention. I got $35 worth of drinks, gave her a hundred dollar bill and she gave me back $30. I looked at her as if she had lost her mind and said "I handed you a hundred" she said, and I qoute, "You gave me forty" so after they went and got a manager "realized" that I had indeed given her a $100 bill, I got back the appropriate change and didn't tip. We stayed for maybe another 20 minutes, during which time I was just stunned that people were acting like this in this day and age. We left and went to another club (Bourbon Pub) and had an AMAZING time!!!
Later I heard the story of the black college student was choked to death by memebers of thier door staff and had I known, I would have never darkened that doorstep. My previous job was as a promoter for clubs in Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami and New York. I can safely say this has never happened to me anywhere. Clubs are hard to get into, maybe the drinks are watered down but for the most part I enjoy clubbing. Not Razzoo. Ever again.
Pros: no cover (and that one star is for having no cover)
Cons: the door staff. the bartenders. pretty much the whole mess.
