RACISM!!! HEAVY SET BEARDED MANAGER & RECEDED HAIRLINE BARTENDER
Just went to Front Page News 1/5/13 to watch the 1st of 2 NFL playoff games with a friend. We got there at the end of the 3rd quarter of the game. We grabbed a seat at the outside bar and immediately asked the waiter for some water and a menu. 5 minutes later I ordered Shrimp & Crawfish Etouffee and my friend had a 10 piece of wings. I ate my dish and was still hungry and ordered a 10 piece of wings as well. We asked the waiter for some more water once and he acted as if it was a sin and only filled it up half way. Throughout the 4th quarter he (waiter) was walking behind the bar as if some Varsity Jock cussing and carrying on as if he was the man in the restaurant. Me and my friend picked up on his wanting to be Macho attitude and just left it alone and just kept eating. We finished our meal and paid the waiter along with a $10 tip and sat around to finish digesting and seeing what game 2 would be like. Meanwhile 2 Caucasian guys in there 20's walked up to the bar and grabbed the seats next to us and the bar tender immediately walked over to me and my friend and told us we would have to leave if we didn't order any more food or buy liquor/beer. This immediately made me totally upset and I asked for a manager and this took things in a crazy direction. The manager was obviously taking on sides with his employee and meanwhile my food hasn't even digested yet and i'm mad that me and my friend were asked to leave when the whole restaurant still had plenty of empty seating outside on the patio and tons in the inside bar and restaurant, not to mention that the bar we were sitting had FRONT PAGE NEWS EMPLOYEES sitting at it as if they were off there shift or just taking up seats that customers could use! We WEREN'T EVEN ASKED TO POSSIBLE MOVE TO ANOTHER SEAT......WE WERE ASKED TO LEAVE!!!!!!We picked up on the Racial Profiling very quick and felt it minutes after just getting there to eat. We were right and it was brought to the light. Being of mixed ethnic race in our younger 40's for both me and my friend as well as nicely dressed (NOT HOMELESS!) the Caucasian race was much more wanted in that establishment and it was EASY TO SEE! So to all the people out there please believe that it took a while for me to type all this down and share it with the rest of the people in Atlanta. Please make your own decision, but this what me and my friend had to deal with.
