The bar is under new ownership and it's about to take The Springs by Storm with live entertainment and much more.
I went there to attend a fundraiser for a guy who has bone cancer. I am a biker and had leathers on of course, also a small swastika pin that was given me by a friend. My friend told me an uncle was owner of that pin and died on the Russian Front during WWII. I wear it so that I can tell people what our country is becoming should they ask. Triple Dickle guys refused to let me in. Someone might be offended they said. Yeah, I am offended. I went around the side of the building (you know, smokers pen) and gave 50 bucks to the guy running the fundraiser and split. Pathetic people running this bar. I was in there at Christmas prior to that and told jokes and stories. Had everybody laughing but that memory is tarnished now by narrow minds of the employees.
Oh, I see "Black Pussy" is playing! I am offended by that racist sounding band name. And it is racist even though they may think it is cute. Put on your white sheets and go to the Dribbling Dickel. It is a dump as well.
Great food from the kitchen, but the out front organization is a total failure.
They told me one time they had no seating available when there was only one table occupied...when I pointed that out they said that one of the wait staff didn't show up and they could not service the remaining tables.
This place, especially without a beer license (who eats curry without beer) will be vacating this space like every other eatery that has been here.
Smily's, at the same time, continues to flourish.
I purchased a groupon for this restaurant and went in the middle of the week at about 7 pm with my child and husband. It took almost 18 minutes to seat us even though we were the only ones standing there, 27 minutes to get us a menu, we had to waive somone down to take our drink orders, wave someone down again to take our food orders after waiting so long.... I was timing all of this as it really got ridiculous. The food was cold when we got it, was okay but curry out of a can at home would have been better, and the bell pepper in the curry still had the store sticker on it, cooked in with the curry. We left at 9 pm when they closed, which the meal should have taken 45 minutes at most. I would have left, had I not bought the groupon already. I have never not given a tip before, this was the first time I didn't give a tip :(
