Just The Tonic

by Mike

Still getting fallout on twitter (see it on @darkflib ) after the issues at just the tonic comedy club in Leicester.

It seems that the two free tickets offered by them on twitter weren’t valid (fine didn’t want them anyway) as the member of staff that posted isn’t authorised to do so…

Okay, fine… the why let your staff play on the internet when they aren’t allowed to do so?

Now the manager (I assume the same guy who was compering that night) is trying to say it was all my fault… That the person who placed the food order for 13 of us (who was eating at the time) and not me should have sorted out the problem (that their staff can’t read a long list of orders correctly) That I was rude to their staff. - I was only rude to the compere when he singled me out after asking me if I had a problem…

…and the answer was yes, I did have a problem and I was trying to sort it out with their staff when he picked on me.

** Things that irritated me (excluding the compere) **

After being open since March they still only accept card only for pre-booked tickets. You can’t pay by card on the door, you can’t pay by card at the bar… okay, fine…

If you go in and want to set a tab up they will take a card in security, but you can’t pay by card…. hmm… okay…

If you order food, you can’t put it on your tab…

If you order food it will take 45 minutes and arrive cold…

If you order food that isn’t a simple order they may omit some items (although not charged for them)

** Things that I liked **

Their staff were friendly (excluding the compere) and tried to fix the problem quickly - and would have done so if the compere hadn’t intervened…

The venue was clean (although a little shabby looking and cramped)
