Cheap!

Poor pours and not a buyback in sight--I'd gone to The Dead Poet several times but after a while figured it's just not worth it. There are plenty of bars on this block where the bartenders are less stingy. In poetic terms, The Dead Poet is a cheap haiku.

My girlfriend and I get there at 10:30pm. It’s a little odd that none of the regular bartenders are there, just 2 blondes. I order a Guinness. it’s busier then usual. Not the normal crowd, whatever… it’s the holidays. 20mins, 30mins… 3 Guinness are poured, one of the blonde bartenders rings a bell I didn’t even know existed and gives them away… okay… the other pours 2 more lighter beers then gives those away… what the?… when did this become a gramcery or murray hill bar (which I lived in a yr ago…) I’m on 36 beers in the Guinness club and will probably stop there. What happened?

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.
