READ If You Pre-Paid For A Bartending Class
Friday, March 5, 2010 10:07 PM
There is indication the bartending school that I had been posting classes for on the meetups' calendars will be shut down. Legal authorities have been notified that the school is operating without the necessary license/permit and preliminary investigations will be conducted I was told.
Furthermore, the venue's management have been notified of the potential illegal operation which, apparently, they were unaware of.
There is a class scheduled (outside of the meetups) for tomorrow, March 6th, but at this point it is most likely cancelled. If you already pre-paid for the class(es) on eventbrite.com, you can dispute the charge with your credit card company. I've done that before and usually you will be given a credit back especially if it's discovered that the business is fraudulent/illegal.
I am truly sorry and regretful I ever marketed/exposed this so-called bartending class/school to the meetup.com community. I just hope those who paid for the class in advance will get their money back.
