    I would have told him to get the fuck out.

    Maybe they changed the law, it’s been about a year since I’ve closed a bar. last call is normally at 2am

    so you would just kick a customer out instead of telling them it is after last call and we need to lock the doors now, all the while with the OPEN sign on and entertainment still playing? when I bartended we would never do something like that.

    Last call usually happens at 1:50AM not 2AM and every bar I close at that time is explicit that the drink must be finished by 2AM. Some even snatch the drink right out of your hand at 1:59.

    For all I know they did make last call.

    I certainly am not going to trust information from a person that went out of their way and invested that much of their time in spamming the local information system with some passive aggressive review like that on Yelp.

    Hmmm…hard to judge this having not been there. A) If the owner/bouncer was a total dick about it (I think we all know the difference between being firm, and being a dick [hey…that was kind of funny]) then it may have been uncalled for. There are ways to say “sorry…bar’s closed” without resorting to “get the fuck out!” I’m curious to know how loud the “get the fuck out” was and how close his face was to yours.

    B) For the record, I’ve finished a LOT of beers at Columbus bars after 2AM. Frankly, once you live in enough different places and get drunk in enough different cities, it’s really hard to keep track of what time bars close where.

    C) I don’t know that Skully’s sucks, so much as I find it disappointing. I think that place has a lot of potential to be really sweet, and I usually find it to be…well…”O.K.”

    I just thought it was funny that instead of simply giving a review, the poster goes on to tell you some of his favorite bands, explain the band’s frontman was stabbed (for no reason apparently), the sweaty performance that they put on and how nobody showed, his fashion sense (twice), the types of beer he likes, his sexual orientation and his creative ways to give someone the bird. Good review.

    I have to admit it is a fun review.

    He also mentioned that this all would have been fine if the bouncer looked ‘decent’ instead of middle aged.

    I also wonder how much more he tips for a guinness than a pbr…

    Skully is kind of a sissy, I don’t really see him bouncing anyone.

    +1 exactly…

    I’ve closed down Skullys plenty and come to think of it I’ve been told to “get the fuck out” on several occasions there at close. God maybe I’ll write about it on Yelp and promote my Yelp review on here.

    It’s a bar, a crude bar. Whadda you expect if you’re debating over their open status because of a sign? Them to gently whisper in your ear, “good kind sir, fine gentleman we’re about to close. Would you kindly, ever so kindly make your way to the door? Good sir how about we escort you there so you don’t slip?”.

    Mr. big city would get his ass eaten alive in a bigger city if he feels slighted by a shitty bouncer at Skullys and pursues retribution in this fashion. Weak.

    Pretty sure he expects every business/elected official/human on Earth to listen to and act on his opinions and ideas. After all, he embodies the perfect target for every product and service – if they can’t win him over, they just don’t get it, and they should just go off and die somewhere.

    Skully’s is pretty loose about their liquor policy, but they’re dead serious about strict enforcement of the “no whiners past 2AM” rule.

    Last call is typically @ 2:15 in Ohio…All drinks in by 2:30….Did this change recently? Theres no reason for someone working at a bar to be so rude to anyone!

    Self-indulgent review aside, is it possible that it’s a case of mistaken identity? Perhaps he mistook you for someone else he had had problems with earlier in the evening?
