So what was the crawler drink special offered at the Shannon if they didn’t want the Hanukkah crawlers?

They dont take crawlers at all which is sort of dumb? From what I am now being told by those who are close to the bar is that crawlers have never worked out there so they do not want them? The santas were barred too. My issue is directed at the fact that why can a regular not go as himself when not associated with a crawl? They did also say that since I was part of the crawl earlier that I am now not allowed in? But drunks are allowed in every other second?

It is truly Mickey Mouse and I am now getting emails from people about the post who know me and are telling me all sorts of things about the bar I never knew. I hear kissing is not allowed there. You make out and you get thrown out? This was relayed by a few people in the last 15 minutes.

At the end of a business day, it is what is in the register that counts. I can’t see a difference between a crawl and the allowed “birthday and bachelor and bachelorete parties’??

Anyway I can just drink somewhere else

Hello Mulligans or Duffy’s! I believe they serve the same products at the same price-point.

Sorry that happened to midtownauthentic. While the treatment of midtownauthentic seems prejudicial, it seems there just has to be more to this story. It seems really odd seeing as midtown is a reg there. The bouncer would benefit from some sensitivity training to say the least.

I asked to speak to the owner/s who I have both met in the past and really like. My comments are made solely based on my experience and is directed to those that made the situation what it is, the 2 guys at the door. A bad apple ruined a tree here. I was with people that heard it too. I am just jaw dropped right now. Forget the jew thing, i go all the time and spend good hard earned money there and I was guilty by association. I had gone earlier and spoke with 1 door guy and he said I could come in later as me without the crawl and then i do it and i get turned away.

I am pissed off after what transpired after the crawl. We were told the Shannon does want any crawlers. After our Hanukah crawl I went home, had some food, got dressed in normal clothing and went to the Shannon where I always go. I was denied at the door because I was part of an “earlier crawl” that had ended. When I explained that the event was ended and I was here to have a drink and foose I was told “No Hanukah People”. I reached out in an email to the owners who I’ve met previously and who I even offered to work with to raise funds for different charities in need. I wanted an answer and didn’t get one as of yet. I know the guys over there pretty well but what the one guy said to me at the door clearly meant “NO JEWS TONIGHT” in the manner it was said. A crawl is a group of people, a regular and his gal pal who comes 2x a week to spend $50 a night on drinks and foose should be treated like gold and I was treated like SHIT. I was plus 1 not plus 40 and 2 hours after our event. In any event I will never go in there again. I was told today from many Hoboken locals that the Shannon has a few regulars and the rest is the Benny’s. It was fun guys but the racist comment was clearly received when you thought… Read more »

Um, no. I don’t do bar crawls. But thanks for thinking of me!

I will say that using Jdate is a total waste of time. All the gals lie about their ages and other critical things. I met a gal on there a few years back, described as a 26 petite gal. She was 36 and far from petite. She said she must have hit the wrong button on accident?

I never tried JDate because I thought you had to be a full-blooded MOT. I didn’t think a Hebrew school dropout would pass muster with the girls who only dated Jewish guys (but I did go to law school so maybe it evens out??).

I have used match on and off, and have had some great successes and epic fails…just like in real life. Was thinking about signing up again. Wonder what other 411’ers might be on there?

To be fair to real life, at least we can get a real ‘feel’ for a person. Whereas, on the web, we only think we know the person whom we’re talking to…

Ah, I wish I understood that ten years ago, when I was on dating networks before they were on the web. You know, when they were on the phone and 80% of the time you were caught chatting with el creepo?

Lavalife? Yeah, Lavalife was kind of a nightmare.

Ah, bad scenes of the past. Thanks for the memories, nacho!

Yes, most dating sites (if not all) are a waste of time.
