    If you're extra awesome you get decorative bottles of water.

    If given the option to get hot water refills instead of the pot, remember: the second cup of tea is why you go with the pot.

    If you purchase tickets for a big act, dont expect to get a seat. Apparently you need to reserve a table in advance. No body said that when the tickets were purchased in November. Pissed off.

    This what they consider a BLT. I guess you have to assemble it yourself?? 😕

    Pretty drafty here in the winter time since it's by the mall entrance. Dress warm.

    There are power outlets running along the bar, useful for when your phone is running out. So grab a beer and charge your phone.
