Don’t hate the players; hate the game. But okay, hate the players a little bit, because anybody who wins at a game as crooked as getting into a decent nightclub is probably a scumbag. The rest of us wait outside, pay a ludicrous entrance fee (and/or table fee/bottle fee), and then realize we’re surrounded by all the folks we normally try to avoid. And that’s if a bouncer doesn’t tell you the club’s full when it’s plainly at half capacity. (Ugh. #*&@ you, Meat Packing District.)
But if you want to know the reasons why club nightlife is so terrible, Guy Code has itemized them as memes, and they are great. Which is to say terrible, but funny.
