Rude Management and Owner – After spending 1000's of $$ for our corporate Christmas party we were treated horrible by the management/owner. The comedian asked where our group was from, started bantering a woman with us...starting with calling her "not the Virgin Mary" (funny) to a douche (not funny at all) After that the crowd stopped laughing. Mgmt didn't care, said it was her fault, kicked her out of the club. The owner was arrogant and rude. Never did anyone apologize. I'm amazed that that club would allow a comedian to ridicule one of their guests--with this type of treatment I don't know how they keep customers. When discussing this with a mgr in front of their restaurant he told us to whisper he didn't want the guests to hear us saying the word "douche" but it was ok for their comedian to call our employee that on a microphone in front of hundreds.
Gut-Busting Good Time – Monday night open-mic is just about the best thing you can go to in the cities. You can't beat two hours of great comedy for free. Drinks are kind of pricey, but they come in carafe's. The place is always packed on open-mic nights so get there early. If you are lucky a big name comic might come and do a practice run of their show that people have to pay for on other nights. Damon Wayans was in town for a Mystic Lake show and performed for an hour after the regular open-mic was done once. Are you going to ACME? Yes you are!! (Thank You Isaac Whitty...)
Simply The Best – The best in the Twin Cities area without a doubt.
