Appalled at the Bigotry Oct 3rd 2009
Well, first off, I have to give kudos for one item at the White rose. We were all very happy with the food (yum salmon wrapped in bacon). But, what happened next will probably keep us all from ever going back.
To start as we were all but finished our food. The (management) came out and canned the entertainment in the middle of his set. (Live acoustic guitar) It was very nice and he could actually sing (on key). As he packed(broke down) his gear; a somber note rang throughout the lounge area as the gentlemen removed his equipment and the management put the awful fm radio back on. As a side note we approached the musician; he shared the little factoid; he was told to quit because he wasn?t right for the crowd. Oddly though that LOTS of people were singing along with him (the musician). Anyway, that isn?t the reason why we will never return just yet.
We were now done eating (an hour and half had passed) and the waitress took away all our plates and utensils. This is when my sister got a text from a friend about dropping by to join us for a couple drinks. He arrived within a few minutes and went up to the bar and got his beer. Then we talked about all sorts of things for roughly 30 minutes. Then another friend texted us and joined us. Now here is where it starts to go under for our party of 6 which just spent over a 100.00 on food not to mention the drinks on top of that. Our new guest went to the bar and got his draft. Now we chatted for another roughly another 10 mins MAX. Then a member of management came over and started to harass our first guest. His ID was cracked; and he was told he could no longer be served and should leave. We all piped up and said perhaps he should check all our IDs (Mind you none of our party was carded at all and served multiple times) ? An it should also be noted our latest guest LOOKED like they might be 18 at best, However, our young looking guest is as gay as a 3 dollar bill and Mexican/Native American and perhaps they didn?t want to be so bold as to play that race and discrimination card. Yet, we know now they don?t like people of color, since the person they harassed incessantly was black and was threatened with calling the police. Mind you, this person (our black friend) was as quiet as a mouse during most of our conversations among ourselves. So in closing, if you are a lily white group of people keep it as such, if you want to have a good time. But, if you want to get kicked out and bullied by Bigots ? By all means invite your friends of color. It will just make your bloody day. ? Perhaps they should rename themselves the ((White Lily)) ? Anyway, none of us will set foot in their establishment again. SHAME since they had good food, but, I don?t endorse BIGOTS.
Pros: GREAT food
