It's been a tough stretch for our readers at the Beatrice Inn. Late last night, we received the following:
Just got back from a failed attempt to hit the Beatrice Inn for the first time. There was no line, there were no outside smokers, just a small door man(SDM) with a bad haircut and a bouncer type. It looked easy enough. When my friend and I approached, the following happened.Ouch. That is a terrible experience. One bad evening can be random, two in one week reeks of a pattern. Love the Star Trek comeback though. Definitely some weekend food for thought.
SDM: Which party are you with?
Me: Actually, we aren't with a party.
SDM: Sorry, can't do it.
Me: Can't do what?
SDM: Let you in.
SDM (looking down): And you are wearing flip flops. That goes against our dress code.
Me: What's the dress code?
SDM: No flip flops.
Me: Well, ok, what if I had a Star Trek symbol on my shirt right here, would that help?
We walked away after that. What a douche.
