So to follow up on Thursday's post, here is what happened.
Bottle service can be a great thing but it is probably one of the most difficult things to handle in the nightlife. Making sure everyone pays you. Defending the booze from strangers who just want to be a part of the group. The simple organization of it all. I personally think that with quality people, it can work well. Fortunately, my buddy understands this and doesn't want to bother with it.
Now the great thing about this is I can tell the manager that we're not going to do the service - BUT we're still coming 20-30 deep anyway. He'll love that. He helped me, so I'm going to help him. Besides, in the summer, when it's MY birthday, he'll be more than willing to help me out.
So tomorrow night will be a good time.
In the end, you want to be able to be the guy that can bring fun, people, and business to a place. Business is key here, in my opinion. You can be a cool guy that people just want to be around. But if you can bring others into the mix, that's another thing. They'll want to make sure you keep spreading word about their place.
It's almost like being your own promoter. But instead of promoting the venue, you're, in essence, promoting your life.
