    If you want the free cover special, make sure to leave enough time to make it to the door before 11:30... Take into account the wait in line; tip the bouncer if you want to speed up the process.

    The doorman decides who comes in. If you're a guy, fat chance. If you know a bartender/owner, fat chance too. Or if you're gay. Not your place. Homophobic and man-phobic. Disgust!
