perhaps the people there are 'nasty' as a reaction to the 'overall problem in the dc metro area' know what i'm trying to say? it aint easy being a door person. my hats off to all of them. thankless job if you ask me. ask the guys at red at the end of the night all the bullsh** they have to deal with. think the guys at the lounge are any different? if anything, it's probably worse. imagine a group of lawyers trying to claw their way in threatening lawsuits, whatever. think about it. and that's only one of about 10,000 possible scenarios at the door.
no such thing as utopia - i'm well aware of that, my friend. but damn, nothing comes closer than a great club. tunes, goons, chicks, and a great party. that's my utopia, bro. peace.
