Dangerous venue

  • No, I would not go back!

I had to sit in the loge, which looks nice in the photo, but is in fact a terrible place to sit. First, it is not ADA compliant (it's an old building and hasn't been updated). There is no continuous hand rail going up the stairs, and they are somewhat difficult steps, especially for someone who uses a cane. I managed to get up to my seat (which has absolutely no place to put your legs or feet) without too much difficulty. But upon leaving, the stairs were crowded, and without anything to hold on to, I ended up falling down the stairs and landing on my back at the bottom of 4 or 5 steps. The good news is that I thought the sound system was pretty good. I am still shaken up by the experience, and grateful I didn't break anything.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
