Went to Stage Left last night pre-concert, intending to sit at the bar for burgers and drinks. Keep in mind that it was about 100 degrees outside.

The bar was closed because the air conditioner was broken. The host asked us if we would sit outside. We said no way and he replied "yeah, i'm required to ask everybody." no one was sitting outside.

Anyway, we got a table right next to the door to the bar and it got opened so often that it was unbearably hot in the dining room (a/c not working well there either). The dining rooms smells like mold, by the way.

Took them 20 minutes to make 2 martinis, including a "he's making them right now" 10 minutes into that time.

Cosmo had black floating objects in it.

Shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were not deveined properly. they were very gritty.

Fries with the burgers were so oversalted, as to be almost inedible.

This was so bad that we were discussing openly with the 2 tables next to us how bad the experience was.

these guys are charging $40 for a piece of salmon? are they kidding?
