guestlist last night means $5 entry... for $5, i must say this club is a hell yes! if you like house music, the first floor's got INCREDIBLE house music (and i've got to say, i'm pretty picky), with amps that will make you go deaf! they've got shots of steam coming from the stage too that guarantee that you'll lose sight of what's going around you if you're close enough! they also had gogo dancers dressed in furry glow-in-the dark outfits under blacklight, and a screen with visual projections like you would see on microsoft's media player or something to go with music. they've got plenty of bars, so you're sure to get your drinks pretty quickly! and there's an area with benches you can sit by the bar upstairs (next to the house music). downstairs last night they had some old school mixed with top 40s... dj was OK... kind of random and kind of an odd selection played at odd intervals. as one of our friends (and a fellow elite!) had commented "it's like a party in a basement" -- which is THE PERFECT description. it's kind of stuffy, but they have some fans. they had a separate room that was playing some techno i think (practically zero bass) which was... ok. not to my taste, but there were some people in that room, which also had all black lights! they sell hotdogs at the entrance by the outdoor area! they have vendors selling glowsticks/lights which was interesting. the line was HELLA long, we probably didn't get in until 12am actually, so get there early to line up. for people that just want to chill out, there's a bar by the entry where people just hang out. they have coat check too! i likeddddd :). if you're looking for a place to get down and have a good time dancing with easy access to booze, temple is the place to go! i'm still kind of deaf though. and don't recommend super high heels. note: there was construction last night with barricades so be sure you know which way you can take to get there ahead of time to avoid walking a lot (to me probably bc i'm in heels) extra to get there!

went here to see the brian posehn special on friday 2 weeks ago. i was so hungry. i didn't realize that we had to wait in the line to get in cuz i don't think they had a show beforehand. and i just wanted to have a cocktail and to eat some stuff! we got in like 5 minutes after the time on the ticket. it's like a giant room with a nicely sized center stage. the seating is like... cafeteria seating. it is kind of odd. we opted to sit at one of those higher bar tables that only sit 2 people against the wall. we were able to get that because you're actually at the same horizontal level as the back of the stage. we were aware of the 2 item minimum, but that's not really a problem since i gotta eat and drink. the service took FOREVER since there's like only 3 guys going around taking orders from everyone, which was a lot. the drinks were alright. i just wish i had gotten them earlier. i remember laugh factory having quicker service. we ordered the spinach dip and the blues burger. the dip was whatever, but the burger was really alright! especially for a comedy club! totally hit the spot. well, the comedians hit the spot. but food helps. despite facing the back of the comics most of the time, i heard them great and i saw enough of them that i don't think it took away from the experience at all. oh! and comics walked right in front of us to get to the stage. so that was kinda cool to see sarah silverman walk like a foot in front of me. but man, she talks about her vag a lot. but i hate lines. but comedy places have lines. i'll deal. i think i'm giving it 4 stars cuz i had a fun time there cuz it was a very special and good event. but i'd totally dock it .5 stars for the slow drink services.
