Some things get better with time. XIV is definitely not one of them. I've been here 3 times over the period of a year and the food and service just gets worse each time. The first time I was with a large group of girlfriends and we did the tasting menu. The consensus was that it was worth trying once but not again. Half the food was good, half was not. The second time was for an industry event and I think I only enjoyed the sliders. The third and last time, I was invited by a friend who was a black card member so we were expecting a good experience. We were wrong. Reasons to avoid this place at all cost: - hour long wait for your reservation - mediocre food at over $100 per person - spotty service - incompetent valets that lost EVERYONE's car (one of my friends actually ran 4 blocks with the valet to get his car and they couldn't find it) - hour long wait for your car - a fight actually broke out and they called the cops (When did this place become so ghetto?) If this is how they treat their black card members, how do they treat everyone else?

I have to agree with Bonnie on the black and tans... they are delicious. There are plenty of other beers and tap there as well, a great plus. I especially liked their Hef and Pale Ale. I saw Crime in Choir (opening for Drunk Horse) here a couple of months ago, and I really do love the small intimate garage-band atmosphere. A nice mix of crowd, from thrash metal junkie-looking people to the laid-back it-looks-like-I-just-smoked-a-bowl type. I guess Crime in Choir aren't that popular yet (although they should be!), so the place wasn't packed at all. I could walk around, take a piss, have a beer, and come back to the front with no problems. There is definitely a welcoming feeling about this place; a nice place to relax, have a drink, and listen to some good live music.

I love you, DNA lounge! You always get me so drunk! And I can blog from the Internet terminals in the club. And the staircases are sweeping and make me feel like I'm in a music video. And the mash-up lounge at PopRoxx is fun. And you're right next to a pizza place and across the street from Crepes A Go Go. But can you please, PLEASE do something about the toilets? They're cold. They're frightening. They look like bidets from an alien space ship. They make me prefer to hold it and just do the peepee shuffle.
