Bellagio, What's Up with That?

OKAY, here's the deal. Five of us went to B. for dinner. Before dinner we were going to have a drink and some appetizers. (I love their fried calamari, with tomato sauce and basil, and a few roasted garlic cloves thrown in). As we went in we noticed a sign that said half price appetizers, and possibly drinks, don't remember, during happy hour ONLY on the patio and at the bar. I suppose they do that so the happy hour shoppers don't take up tables from the dinner customers. But, we were told that because we were not seated at the bar, (all 5 of us?), nor at the patio ( sun beaming down) we could not take advantage of the happy hour specials. Mind you again, we were there to eat dinner. For some reason I feel cheated in that because we sat down proper and ordered food we were exempt from the HH special. If we had waltzed in and just had drinks and appetizers and left, we would have been better off. It don't seem quite right. What is your opinion out there? In case any B. people are reading this, what happened to us is a deal breaker. There are too many other good restuarants in town to go to. Sorry, won't be back although our dinners were very good.
