My friend, who I convinced that attending this event would be a GREAT time, and I arrived at Hudson Terrace at 9:40 P.M.
My friend and I were totally excited for this gig the entire week...
So. Upon your arrival, you are given a drink menu which describes the "Autumn-inspired" cocktails available that evening and six tickets which you use to get your drinks.
We take the elevator up to the top floor. We were both going over which drinks we were going to try first.
We get to the bar, we both order different drinks. I can't remember which one I ordered first, but it was the one with "Pumpkin" in the description. All the drinks are already pre-prepared in bottles aligned at different areas of the bar (understandable, for the amount of people at the event). We both tried our first drinks. I thought mine tasted like beer and flat soda mixed together. My friend's tasted like a horrible lemon drop (It's important to note that her drink had NO "lemony" type alcohol in it).
So, we both decided we would just put those to the side and try another. Again, complete and total failure.
As we went for round three at the bar, we both became a bit hopeful watching the bartender make a drink that had campange and vodka in it ("Peach Fizz"). So, we both used two tickets to get the large size of that drink.
It tasted like robotussim. So, we placed our nearly full "Peach Fizz"'s back on the bar.
We both decided we would try the drink "Candy apple" something. Now, if you weren't a diabetic or anyone not under the age of 6, then you might have thought that was a decent drink. However, due to the amount of sugar content in that drink, I have made an appointment at my doctor to test for diabetes type II.
Upon that uplifting event, we both decided that it was time to leave. So, at 10:10, my friend and I gave up our two tickets we had left, and exited towards the elevator.
In approximately thirty minutes, I was robbed of $22.50, developed diabetes type II and was pissed off.
I HIGHLY recommend that you either EAT $22.50 or eat a bucket of broken glass than pay to this event, because it will end up being a more eventful evening.
SHORT OF THE LONG: DO NOT GO TO THIS EVENT IF YOU HAVE SELF DIGNITY!!
