Listen, I'm probably going to piss someone off because although I realize that the bars are run by decent people in this town and probably generate about half the revenue keeping this place afloat, something has to be said. After work the other night I decided to splurge and go "bar hopping". It was Saturday night and everyone was in full Halloween getup. The first bar I walk into looks decent enough but after ordering my drink I was almost knocked over by an unprovoked assault. 5 men picked the biggest guy in the bar and beat him to the ground right in front of me. Where were the bouncers? Only one on duty? On a Saturday before Halloween?! Shockingly I turned around and left only to watch as the men returned to take another go at this brave man. Still no bouncers! Cutting corners in the wrong area is what it looks like.
So I go next door where it seemed slightly calmer. I got a seat at the bar and ordered a drink. After almost finishing my drink I was astounded to learn from the drunken man next to me that the young lady dancing on the bar was in fact the owners daughter and the girl that was currently so drunk she needed help back into her stool was her friend. Neither looked old enough to be in there and at what point do you stop serving someone? She was helped back onto her stool where she slumped to finish her drink....
Onward to a bar on Center St. that I heard was better because I was not ready to give up on this night yet. As I was getting out of my car I witnessed a man out in the parking lot trying to scrape a young gentleman off the pavement. This guy was drunker than I had ever seen anyone in my long life and I pray today that he is currently safe. The man carried the guy to a car as I was asking myself again, AT WHAT POINT DO THESE BARS STOP SERVING SOMEONE WHO IS VISIBLY INTOXICATED?! Isn't it their duty to make that call instead of taking that last 2 dollars in exchange for a beer that they are clearly way past being ABLE to acknowledge that they don't need?! There is at least one public drunkeness article in the paper a week. For such a small town this is disgraceful. You can blame it on the residents, they should know their limit but as a proprietor , you should be more attentive to your guests. After all, a dead customer can't drink.

I was the girl dancing on the bar- which i do sober & I assure you I am 22 although I dont look it. If you dont like it, dont visit us. Alot of girls find it fun to be able to go in and dance on the bar like coyote ugly, we've had girls from 21-55 on the bar & men of various ages too, its all light hearted fun.

also the bar next door i ASSURE you has more than just one bouncer, both bars are indeed good bars & are actually family owned & employed for the most part, im not trying to cause a stink but i feel it unecessary to judge either bar by your one bad night, which was also HALLOWEEN weekemd when of course people will be getting out of hand

I have been to both those bars and the one always has atleast two to 3 bouncers maybe they just wasn't all there yet. And for the other bar I actually have never had a problem in there infact I am in my mid 30's and it didn't bother me that the girls were dancing on the bar. I will say that not all bar tenders can pay attention to how much their patrons drink or if they are totally intoxicated. Maybe you should have pointed it out to the bar tender that you think that person is over the limit. Then u wouldn't feel so bad.

I have to disagree with your statement that they cannot pay attention to how much their customers drink. It's their JOB, try telling LCB they cannot pay attention to them all. That's a fine and they will also make the statement "then maybe the bartenders should not be dancing on the bars and pay attention. I have nothing against people having fun, but I am a bartender and I pay attention to everyone I serve. Good bartenders know their job and do it very well. If you want to do the job you have to be prepared to be the one to shut customers off. Yes they may get upset that night, but they will get over it the next day.

I do work in a bar, I don't see anything wrong with customers dancing on the bars, buy if the bartenders are dancing on the bar how exactly are they "keeping their customers safe". As the Bar Patron stated they cannot pay attention to all the customers. Excuse me but that's what they get paid for. Am I not right?

On a holiday weekend it is hard to pay attention to everyone. I work at a bar too so I do know it's not an easy task especially when you have a packed house and one bartender to keep up with everyone. For one the bar that served whoever was not either of the 2 bars being bashed. As for you you must work at a bar that don't get packed cause I am sure if it was packed you would know it is hard to pay attention to everyone while you are serving people at same time.

On a holiday weekend the owners should know enough to have more than one bar tender. Also if there is 2 to 3 bouncers they should be telling the bartenders who they believe are to be intoxicated. I work in a bar also, but nice try.

If you have a bar "full" of people and only one bartender, that is managements fault for being under staffed and seeing you are the "owners daughter" you are just as much at fault.
Quit being a cheap asz and hire some help. Bartenders don't make jack per hour...

"If I don't like it don't visit" is no way to talk to a customer. The point I was trying to make about Shakers was watching the young lady fall off her stool only to be picked up so she could continue drinkking. The bartender thought it was hilarious. That's all. Get off the bar and take care of your customers.
