NY Eve at the High Fi Club. Without a doubt - without a doubt - the worst Bar service I've ever come across. Ever. Having Tattoos doesn't make you a bartender. 3, 4, 5 bartenders behind the bar, tattooed girl, fitness top girl, tattooed guy. Not one of them fucking has a clue. Serve people out of order. Don't make eye contact. Don't know who's next, don't care. Make a drink, turn your back to the line, take a drink for yourself. Talk to your fellow barmen. Walk around, look busy, ignore line-up. Take another drink. Someone comes behind the bar and empties the tip buckets - one solitary clink, one coin, I mean, I get it, you guys are so fucking clueless you're not even inept, you'd have to at least be trying. And they'll tell the owners nobody tips...turn around, pretend to smile, accidentally serve someone. First time - in my life - that I kept the change from a drink. Hi Fi Club Calgary - worst - service - ever!!!

That said, once you accepted you wouldn't be drinking at a bar on NY Eve, and that the staff were there to save you money, the music was good, and the crowd, as close to the Kootenays as you could get in Calgary, which is something but not much. Summers coming...
