Staff Meeting Pictures

What a freaking blast last night! The Twisted Martini (2 Independent Dr.) was quite good and special thanks to our waitress Jennifer and, of course, to Josh for hooking us up.

We will definitely make a return visit very soon, but we may have to make it a weekend cause we are all feeling it this morning (maybe it has something to do with those SHOTS). Check out our pics!

The service is atrocious.

My friend Jeff I were out in my boat, and we were coming back through downtown after night fell, and we figured we'd pop into the landing for some drinks. The place wasn't that busy, but it took 20 minutes for the bartender to acknowledge us and take a drink order, 45 minutes for the (obviously fresh from the microwave) food to arrive, and meanwhile we were still waiting for another round of drinks.

When we were ready to leave, I snagged the waitress and asked for the check. 10 minutes go by. 20. 30. We were seated by the bar, and the bartender was walking by and asked whether we wanted anything else. I repeated "just the check". Another 10 minutes go by. At this point, I'm fed up, and pretty tired out from being out on the water all day. I said "F*ck it, we're leaving" and we walked out. It was probably about 10pm at this point. I would have left cash, but all I had was a credit card, and I'd asked for the check literally 5 times and waited 40+ minutes by that point. Frustrating.

So after walking out, we made it all the way down the ramp to the boat dock, and I was already onboard with one engine running and just finishing starting up the other one. Jeff had already untied the bow and spring lines, and was undoing the stern line.

At this point, their oversized bouncer bounds up to the railing over the boat dock, and yells at me "hey asshole, you didn't pay, get your ass back up here we called the cops". I had the side window open, and yelled back "We asked for the check ten times and waited an hour for it, you guys had your chance, now I'm leaving. Next time pay some attention!".

At this point, he starts running down the metal ramp to the boat dock, and Jeff was finished with the stern line and yelled "just go". So I pulled the boat back from the dock about 20', and the bouncer is still yelling at me, and I'm laughing and saying "Ok, tough guy, what are you going to do, swim? Come on...let's see it."

Anyway, we sailed off, and that was the end of it. That place was a buncha azzholes though, and I wouldn't go back if you paid me. Not that they'd have me back anyway, so I guess it's a win-win. That's only the second time in my life I've ever walked out of a restaurant without paying, and it's certainly something I don't make a habit of (especially since it's illegal), but these douchebags really deserved it.
