The two-hundred-and-fifty-first day...

Wednesday, December 2, 2009
I went to the Sassy City Chicks Fashion Bash tonight thinking that it would be as good as the Shecky's Girl's Night Out event was. I was so wrong. I will never recommend that event to anyone. After the way things have been at work, I was looking forward to enjoying a free drink or two without stress. I was sorely disappointed.

First, P and I had VIP tickets but, according to the drunk and belligerent bouncer in the lobby there was no difference between VIP tickets and regular ones. Same line = too bad. They had all the attendees lined up on the stairs - and it was so hot. The heat + the wait was making for some cranky people. So a couple of the women went to ask the bouncer some questions. He then started cursing and yelling at them as they walked away from him. Yeah...the customer service went down from there.

Eventually P and I, along with a few other ladies, got pretty fed up, decided to bypass the bouncer's idiocy and seek out a manager. We had been waiting for about 15 minutes, but some people had been waiting for an hour or more. Ridiculous! So we walked upstairs only to be met with another less drunk, more surly and belligerent bouncer who reiterated that there was no difference between the $3 tickets and the $20 VIP tickets, and then passed us off to a manager. She spoke to the whole group yet continued to stare at me and, I have to tell you...I wasn't having it. I've had my bitch limit for the week and was done. I don't know what look she saw in my eyes, but she stopped trying to bs us and yelled out "Do you want to get in here?! Is that what you want? Is it?!" I simply said "Yes". No need for both of us to look insane. She was acting bitchy and crazy enough for three.

She walked us over to the check in table and told them to check us in, while the same more surly/belligerent bouncer stomped over, got in her face and said "Do you see what you did? Now you did let them in...and now we have more people demanding to be let in. You did this!" Yeah, we walked away at that point. I haven't been to an event that disorganized in a long time.

Anyway, the event itself sucked. There were so few vendors there that it was just not worth it at all. This picture was pretty much the entire thing.

I wish I had gotten the names of that manager and the bouncers. As it is, I'll just have to find creative ways to refer to them in my complaint letter :)

Have a wonderful rest of the night everyone!



Wow! That sounds completely ridiculous!

for the love of pictures

Hey Jeanette :) I agree. I have already written an e-mail to the company to inform them of what happened and how horrible the event was :)

Have a wonderful rest of the week!


That is terrible! I am sorry you had such a bad experience!

for the love of pictures

Hey Life :) Me too. They've had a lot of bad reviews for that event too. Hopefully the company learned a lesson.

Have a great rest of the night!
