    NO MORE BROKEN CITY :(
    Yesterday afternoon I got an email from our Server at Broken City....

    BROKEN CITY EMAIL
    My name is Rebecca, I'm the Marketing Manager at Broken City as well as your server last Saturday night during your Dance MeetUp. I'm not sure if you are aware or not, but the group was unable to pay their bill in its entirety, $25.20 (not including any gratuity, which based on the size of your group, should have been 18% of aprox. $150).
    From the MeetUp page, I understand you are the organizer of the group as well as the person who made the reservation making you responsible for those involved. I would like to ask that your group not return to Broken City again and that you should establish a better system or set of rules for it's members to follow, eliminating the chance for such events to occur at another venue.

      According to John it was the Single Mothers not us who were short on the bill...so we're good :)

      I don't know about the $25.20, not sure how you can make that assumption when those ladies left long before a gratuity of $150 was expected, so obviously there was a large number of people who didn't pay. Too bad people are not responsible!

    Patrick Kudos on handling this siutaiton really well
    Although I didnt attend the event I have heard before some ppl walking out on bills with meet ups before & organizers being hit with the costs. Shame on those supposed adults that did that! Hopefully they step up as it might have been an error

    On the note of gratituity, Its up to the establishment to charge 18 % or the amount its establishes to each persons bill, so I would not support anyone forking over $150 for a tip that was not properly collected / earned / deserved in the first place.. & sounds like there was mixed reviews on that as well as the music, although many made the best of the night that could.

    Not every night is going to run smoothly! Its sounds to me its Broken City that is the one that needs to establish come rules such as cash on order, or credit card to run a tab. She just tried to tranfer the blame.. sour grapes comes to mind since they didnt get tips.. hmmm

    I'll probably know the lyrics to everything they play....

      Ya, that sounds like a good idea Nat. Sorry i had to leave early but while i was there I saw some awesome dance moves though :) Great Group!!!!

      March 3, 2013

  • Natasha

    I had fun dancing with all the people that stuck around! Next time let's tie up the DJ and start spinning the good stuff. Good thing I didn't wear my Hammer pants...

    I didn't think the music was bad at all! It just was what it advertised: early hip-hop. And I liked the vibe at Broken City! Thanks for organizing, Patrick.

    Ok ok, apparently ithe 80s & 90s hip hop they played didn't make it to the radio, actually after midnight they played some Dr. Dre, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Beastie Boys & Notorious B.I.G. By the time most people were gone. Natasha, Manny, Bobby, Sarah, Carla and John stuck around long enough to show off some dance moves. MC Hammer was M.I.A.

    • Sarah

      Totally fun dancing with you guys. Way to go for sticking it out past midnight! I just needed an early night.

    I unfortunately have had a headache most of the day. So changing my RSVP to no for now. But I'm hoping it will go away.

  • Patrick

    Sorry about the confusion. Bob is right, Broken City is at
    613 - 11th Ave. S.W. Calgary, Alberta Canada, next to the Rhino
    (403)[masked]
    When I do a search for it on the Meetup web site it says 11 st SW, I don't know why?!?! See you in a bit.

    March 2, 2013

    • Bob

      Too funny! You're trying to fix the what map? LMAO!

    Hi everyone! I've only been to a few dance meetups before, but what I've found is that it's pretty easy to find the group (I just look for Patrick) and that everyone's super welcoming. You won't feel lost long.

    March 2, 2013

  • Sarah

    Going to try to be there for 9ish this time, to actually have a chance to say hi before the dancing begins!

    February 27, 2013

    • Sarah

      Hm! Sounds motivational. How about: ...if you desire to fail or don't want to disappoint.

      March 1, 2013

    • Sarah

      Ryan: this is fun! I see what you mean, but it makes me want to be stubborn. I don't think success is the only goal in life. Or maybe what I mean is that there may be multiple things we're trying to succeed at at any given time; saying try instead of will is a conscious decision to allow those other goals some room too. ...Anyway: here's to setting debate aside on the dance floor tonight!

      March 2, 2013

  • Anita V

    Do you want to meet at the doors at 8:30? Lol....then we can all look lost together?

    I will be there before 9. What time are some of you going? I don't really know anyone so I feel a little lost!

  • ~*Steen*~

    I am going to see Sonic Addiction with the rock group. Have fun! :)

      It is about quality not quantity.

  • Patrick

    A few people have asked about a cover charge, it's $5 after 9 so if you don't want to pay show up earlier.

    February 25, 2013

  • Anh V.

    Well, my other girlfriends would love this 80s and 90s hip hop dance too... Too bad I would love to join, but I'll be enjoying the sunshine and heat in LA instead:) Have fun everyone.

    February 25, 2013
