I came here to watch the Dave Bruebeck Quartet and they were amazing. Ticket prices were around $65 though- rather steep. The place is surprisingly small, and they pack tons of people in there. The tables are so close to each other, you will find yourself sandwiched between other people. The waitresses must be pretty skinny to meander their way in between the small spaces between each table. Make sure you get there early, seating at tables is on a first come first serve basis. I lined up outside for about an hour. There is a $5 minimum so you have to either eat or drink something. Some things I liked: -spring rolls: nice and crispy. Nothing too amazing. -flourless chocolate cake: DELICIOUS! For drinks, they have a nice selection from a chocolate martini to a glass of riesling. Enjoy!

Not so much. Thursday night, no cover. Awesome. I needed to shake some booty, and I knew a couple decent DJs would be there at some point later in the night. My boyfriend hates this place and I don't care much for it either, but I'll go where the beats are. The crowd? Meh. There was a Sounders game that night, so the crowd was very eclectic. DJs were absolutey HORRIBLE before midnight, when one of my local faves finally hit the decks. Thank God. ADVERTISED SPECIAL : $1 shots and $3 beers. Yes, we're in a recession, and though I usually won't take my chances with well booze, tonight, we did. I ordered us shots of vodka with cranberry chasers, and drank Miller High life, the ADVERTISED SPECIAL. We leave at 1 am, and I asked the BF how much the bill was while we are driving home. He says he's not sure, didn't pay attention. I had ordered the drinks. Pulls out the receipt, HOLY FUCK. $37??? By my calculations, the bill should amounted to abso-fucking-lutely no more than $15. Luckily we received an itemized bill so I could see for myself that we were charged NO LESS THAN $6 PER SHOT. The description next to it? Well Drink. I did not contact mgmt to haggle over the bill. I think I'll be sending the right message when I say that I will never set foot through those doors again. Trinity gets two stars instead of one because the dude working the door was nice, he smiled, and was funny. Hey door guy - you deserve better. Trinity, you blew it.

The goods: I go here to get my study on and to chill for a sec. The deserts are good, the coffee is good, the wireless internet is fast, the style is uber and the seating by the widow up front is prime real estate. The Bad: sometimes it's packed, which sucks. The bagel sandwhich thing is aweful and expensive.
