Jan 30th, 2013 my friends and I were visiting the beautiful city of St. Petersburg, Florida.
We were excited to explore the night life and we went to the bar called "Georgie's Alibi". The place was nice. The bartenders inattentive, but that's not all. My friend from Russia, who did not speak English well by the way wanted to have some fun and dance a little bit. He took his sandals off so it be easy to dance. He didn't know the rules on the dance floor and it was not allowed to dance barefoot. I was just sitting and chatting with other customers by the bar. In 15 minutes I saw the security guard was pushing my friend to the exit in a rude way from my point of view. I came up to the guard and I asked him what had happened. He told me to mind my own business and get back to where I was, witch sounded rude enough too. My response was: "it's my business because he is my friend and I need to know why you kicked him out." The security guard explained that it was manager's order to take my friend out because he was dancing barefoot. Once again, my friend didn't speak English well! And the manager could've asked me (as it was obvious that we were hanging together) or someone else to explain to the poor Russian guy the rules of the bar. But the manager didn't bother to find a way to let the guy know that he couldn't dance barefoot, he JUST WANTED TO THROW HIM OUT!!! I did attempt to fix it and I explained to the manager that my friend didn't speak English well. And my friend apologized to the manager and promised him to follow the rules in the future, but the manager didn't care about the apology and ordered to security: "GET THEM ALL THEM OUT OF HERE!" It was very, very, VERY rude!!! I didn't get the managers name. I asked him what his name was but he just turned his back on me and never gave me response! All I know is that it was a tall guy wearing glasses. And I also do have some video from this story. It is available if someone's interested.
There are a lot of other places with nice and smart managers! "Good luck" to the owner of "Georgie's Alibi". I hope you are smarter then your employees! I definitely would not recommend this place to anyone. So "good luck" "Georgie's Alibi" in getting new customers!
