Service horror story
Anybody else had a run-in with a bad bartender lately? I did -- with a whole staff of them.
Went to a bar the other night and ran into some particularly atrocious service. (I'm writing about it for next week's nightlife column.) I stood alone at one end of a bar with money in my hand while two bartenders, one manager and a bar back completely ignored me.
They saw me standing there, and only half of the bar seats were full. But they just stood at the other end of the bar -- some of them just doing idle chores or drinking water.
I eventually got so frustrated I walked to the outside bar. That's a story in and of itself. The whole tale will be in next Thursday's LIVE section.
