I have eaten at Etcetera Etcetera before, and it was a fine and pleasant experience, nothing that is totally memorable. However last weekend I went to a private party in the upstairs area, and they were charging $11 for a cocktail and in verrrry small print, it said ""$1 for gratuity added in"", and of course no one could see this, so there was a tip bucket there for the bartender to make more money! Then, something strange happened, a stink bomb or pepper spray or something went off, suddenly everyone at the party was coughing, and we all ran downstairs immediately. Eyes were watering, people were hacking up their lungs. It was horrible! Not only did I feel bad for the party's host, but I was incredibly distraught when the manager said he was sorry, he didn't know what happened, and for us to have a nice night. Not good if you ask me, I think he should have offered us a round or drinks or done something to at least compensate us for the horrible experience. He was rude and unforgiving, and I know that I don't plan on going there ever again! Bitter, table for 1!
