If you're a guest at the season's events, make sure that you're part of the celebration, not part of the problem
Some sports fans like to rock up to a bar and cheer on their team. Others live for the traditions: tailgating, party-hosting, and dressing head-to-toe in fan apparel. Here are so…
I tend bar at Pineapple Jacks.. I realise it's not perfect, however, when is a business of this nature "perfect". What I can tell you, which is the same as I tell all of my family and friends, is that Pineapple Jacks is by far the most fun place I've worked for. The atmosphere is what you make of it. There's everything for everyone. We have Three pool tables, seven dart boards, a jukebox, lotto machines and quickdraw, dozens of high-def tv's,, a DJ, a dance floor, and a concert hall where we play the best bands Rochester has to offer...hell, we even have a smoking lounge. Not to mention the very extensive high-end liquor selection, and an even more extensive shelf selection. We have an awesome lineup at the bar, with very knowledgeable bartenders (tooting our horn), and quick service.. especially considering the size of the bar (it never seems to end :P ) For what it's worth, I put in around 30 hours a week working only weekends.. I've seen it all and experienced it all. Out of other well established bars/resurants I've worked at, I have to say that Pineapple Jacks is the first one where it felt like a family. And, if your bartenders are having fun, then you know it's going to be a good time!
Several of my friends and I stopped by Pineapple Jack's on a Sunday afternoon. I went up to the bar to place an order and was refused service by a bartender named "Gina". I asked her what the problem was, she stated that she would not serve us solely based on the fact that we were in the company of a certain patron of Pineapple Jack's. I was able to get my order taken care of by another bartender...Not for nothing, but this is no way to generate business. If an EMPLOYEE has a personal issue with a PATRON, you don't refuse to serve people because they are in close proximity to someone you have a "gripe" with. I found this extremely childish on the bartender's part, and Very poor for business. Over all Pineapple Jack's is a fine establishment, It's just a shame they put up with this "blemish"...
We went to Chili's for dinner on a Saturday night. The waiter and staff went beyond the call of duty! They were terrific! We ordered loaded baked potato skins (fantastic!) wothout bacon. They forgot and added bacon. Three different people came out and appologized and gave us the appetizer for free. We told them that it was fine and that we didn't mind paying but they insisted on giving it to us. The service was great on all other matters and they were really busy. They treat you like you are the only ones in the resturant. I'd highly recommend them!!!
