Just like any other club. I heard it was the best club in ATL, but I don't know what the hubbub is all about. I did like getting in free for signing up for the list. Got there early to avoid the rush. They were throwing around money the night I was there, but I didn't get any. There needs to be more places to sit. My feet were killing me and then was told by the staff we couldn't sit by the stage. Whatever.

I went here for pass-over...very fitting. Anyway I had read really good things about this restaurant so I figured I'd give it a shot. Really it was not even my first option, but after seeing that all the other places we wanted to go to were packed, we found ourselves back to the hotel, and this place was located about a block so we just decided to check it out. First of all, it's a bit remotely located, I didn't know this place was next to my hotel until I went there. Inside, it is really nice, the decor is cozy but not overly so. The food was great, it's the first time I've ever had Israeli food, and it was a great experience, it is surprisingly similar to Lebanese cuisine, but stands on its own. We got the little platter with like 9 different salads, they were mostly pretty good. Then we got a bunch of tapas, the hummus was delicious as was the eggplant, but the most stellar was the cauliflower! Really good! The service was beyond helpful, our waiter was the nicest guy, and knew quite a bit about wines and recommended a delicious Sauvion, and the Carmel dessert wine, which is probably the yummiest dessert wine I've had in a while! Really the food is probably a 3.5, but the waiter was so nice and made us feel so comfortable that I just have to give it a 4! Oh and i will most definitely be back to this place when I go visit Philly again!

i wish i could summon the appropriate words to express my hatred of this rat hole. well, i guess i'll just tell the damn story. so my friends and i were enjoying our drinks around 1:40 a.m., when a bouncer walked by to tell us to finish up. we continued drinking. five minutes later, he walked by and yanked my friend's beer out of his hands and threw it away. this friend -- let's call him "L," as in "loudmouth" -- said to the bouncer, "why don't you give me my five dollars back, then?" and it was on. the meathead piece of garbage bouncer wheeled around and, without a word, began choking the living crap out of L (who stands all of 5'8", 150 lbs). i tried to pry the bouncer's hands off L's throat, but they wouldn't budge, so i figured, hey, why not choke this guy, since he's so fond of the technique? so that's how i found myself choking a bouncer at a nightclub. just a typical weekend for yours truly. okay, that's a total lie. i haven't been in a fight since the sixth grade, and that one got broken up by the recess teacher before anyone threw a punch. on that particular evening i was the token gentile rolling with three jews comin' at ya straight outta la jolla, yo. a rough crowd, to be sure. anywho, so i was choking this bouncer and some random dude yelled "hey man, that's a BOUNCER!" as if bouncer = police officer or any other occupation deserving of respect. the next thing i knew, some dude tackled me and i knocked over one of those trees they have in planters out on the patio. a melee ensued (in which L's big brother pulled off this sweet juke move takedown combo. total ninja move) but somehow everyone escaped mostly unscathed. we called sfpd to report the incident and press charges against Chokey McBouncer, and they took their sweet time reporting to the scene. while we waited, Chokey sent one of his dopey friends out on the street to punch another friend in the back of the head, but we weren't stupid enough to get into a street fight in front of their club. when the police finally got there, the cop lectured us on the record of the fine people who work security at the endup. that sounded mighty corrupt to us, and we said so, at which point the cop did a lot of backtracking and suddenly became interested in hearing our story. at the end of the evening, however, nothing happened to Chokey & Co. that's lame and all, but at least i can badmouth them on this here internet.
