There seem to be many conflicting reviews about Vinyl... First I'd like to clear One thing up... If you are going to dog club Vinyl and want to send a strong message don't include "I recommend you go to the Church instead" as part of your review because the Church and Vinyl are both owned by the same person "Regis" All you are doing is sending money to him via a different route. My personal point of view of Vinyl is they have good nights and they have bad nights, it all depends on what you are looking for. Vinyl and Church are both known for bringing in great electronic DJs and Hip Hop DJs like DJ Craze, Miguel Migs, Diplo, Kid Capri, Qbert, etc... But you have to realize this also means on certain nights they don't have a consistent DJ that plays everyweek . On other nights the DJs are more local, and on some nights the club actually rents out part of the club to private parties that bring in their own DJs. I've attended several of each of these kinds of parties. The DJ Craze event was one of my favorites he totally rocked the crowd and killed it on the turntables. There are a few nights wher I have been left very unimpressed by their DJs, their crowd control at the end of the night or by their bar staff, and other nights where they do everything perfectly and their DJs are on top of their game. The Breakz Party (the one people were talking about somewhere on here with the breakdance competition) was a great overall party, loved the DJs on that night, DJ Chonz was doing his thing, DJ Emir was killing it with hot remixes and DJ Sound Supreme warmed up all the breakdancers with some great breaks and oldschool hiphop. This was a great night with the rooftop completely packed out and great music that differed on three floors with house music on the first floor, techno breaks on the second and Hip Hop and reggae on the third floor rooftop. You don't find that kind of diversity at many Denver nightclubs. Now if you visit Vinyl on another night you might not get the same experience. Many times they only have two floors of music running with the top floor usually feeding a music downstairs to the second floor as well so you wont have as much diversity in the music. Especially on a night like reggae on the roof thursdays where despite the name of the night, the music is mostly Hip Hop and does not vary from floor to floor. My point is, you can't judge any club based on any One night in particular. granted anyone that has a bad experience will most likely not return unless they have also had a good expreience in the past. So my advice to all nightclub owners is to make sure your entertainment is top notch and make sure your staff, bartenders and bouncers all understand that treating your patrons well and providing great entertainment is the golden ticket to longevity in the nightclub industry.

Fortune Cookie Tattoo is located in the heart of downtown Denver. The owner, Jon, is a true genius behind the gun. He is known to be quick, precise and passionate, what serious customers look for in a tattoo artist. The shop itself definitely holds a professional standard for its cleanliness and by the book sanitary precautions that are obvious when you're inside the place. Considering how clean and sanitary a parlor is before you choose to get a tattoo done there is very important. A tattoo gun punctures the skin and injects a drop of ink into the skin. A puncture wound has a great chance of becoming infected and has the potential for disease transmission. Most materials used in the application process should be disposable. Things like the ink cartridges, ink cups, needles, and gloves. Fortune Cookie Tattoo follows these guidelines as they only use single-use materials that arrive in sterile packaging. Time and money should definitely be a factor when deciding where you want to get tattooed. You’re paying for something that’s going to be on your body for the rest of your life, so you don’t want to go searching for bargains. You also don’t want to overpay for a tattoo. Smaller tattoos done in professional shops typically won’t be more than $100. Larger pieces vary depending on detail. You want an artist that can work efficiently, meaning they go at a steady pace but not quick enough to affect the quality of the tattoo. Some pieces do require multiple sessions. Jon is the head artist at Fortune Cookie and is very accommodating to his customers wallets, but does set a higher price for higher detailed pieces. He gives an estimate on price and time once the sketches are drawn, which is helpful to customers who want to have a complete idea of what’s to come with their tattoo. Tattoo artists have specific styles that they excel in and other styles that they may not be as skilled at. Its important to pick an artist that specializes in the style you’re looking for. Fortune Cookie houses four talented artists. Jon Lew, Dan Archer, Jay Stein, and Bonnie. Jon focuses on custom neo-traditional pieces with a lot of color. Dan specializes in illustrative styles such as American & Japanese Traditional, Newschool, and New-Traditional. Jay and Bonnie are skilled in all genres and are willing to work with the artist’s imagination. Professional tattoo parlors like Fortune Cookie are hard to come by. The strict sanitary precautions, affordability, and widespread artistic skill in different genres makes it one of the top 3 shops in Denver. This shop will really make you feel at home as it’s easy to connect with your artist and express your wants. Customers are sure to feel comfortable with the tattoo process and the outcome.
The food was awesome, the drinks were good and the comedians were hilarious at least on the nights we went. The only thing I really hated was the spacing between the seats and the uncomfortable nature of the seats themselves. I'm a skinny lil gal myself and just having an average sized guy and average sized girl next to me made me feel clostrophobic due to the extremely packed nature of their seating. The first time we went I was utterly disapointed that the seating arrangements weren't set up as actual tables or booths but rather like ultra cheap movie seats (not the cool big ones they have these days) or worse yet school auditorium seating. After seeing comedy venues on TV in shows like Seinfeld and Family guy, as well as in reviews and magazines always looking more like a lounge setting with round tables, I was extremely disapointed in the seating arrangements, but that was my only complaint.
