Since I have to pick a star (tho I didn't want to), Rumor is a place I would say... sucks. I hate it, I went twice (surprised I went the second time) and both times sucked ass. The first time I went, it's was on a friday night, went with my cousin and it was only 10pm and the line was long to start with. As I got in to pay... it was $25 dollars... $25 DOLLARS??? WHAT??? Damn, that's a lot. But it's the first time going there, so we paid and got in and my cousin saw someone he went to school with that was actually working for that night and it's promotion. I was glad because the guy hooked us up with free drinks and gave us a wrist band to let us go in the VIP room. So I thought everything was gonna be good... WRONG. Too many flaky people, everyone was there to look good then to party and dance. All the guys (felt like every guy) had sunglasses on, I know it's suppose to make you look "cool" but it's dark inside and makes you look dumb. The girls pretty themselves up and with their short dresses and high heels, I guess they don't wanna dance to ruin their look... NAW... they just stuck up females trying to look good in front of dumb guys who are willing to spend SOOO much money on alcohol thinking they are gonna get some. "Rumor" has it that they pay pretty females to go to their club to make it seem only pretty ladies go to rumor. Well the night sucked, no one was dancing and VIP room sucked more, barely anyone was in there and girls were more stuck up. Even with the free drinks and "VIP" access, I had zero fun. The second time was a tuesday night, met up with a friend who thought it would be fun, again $25 to get in, and everyone is in there to look good instead of dancing. Save your money cuz this place is too expensive and not fun at all.

When you're halfway towards becoming a full-fledged rateclub'er (100+ rateclub!s) and you're past being a dabbler (less than 50 rateclub!s), there are those days when you can review 15 places in one sitting. Then there are those days when nothing inspires you, you feel dead inside, there is nothing out there worthy of your words and your feelings. Oh, Vessel, thank you for bringing me back in the game. Went here with James M. last Thursday and was not harassed by the guards at all because, 1. there was no line (surprisingly, since so many people bitched about the lines and the guards) and 2. because I brought it. I mean, BROUGHT IT. Upon entering, though, there was no reason to bring it because nothing was broughten by the other people who thought they were bringing it, even though they weren't. Hyeah. Say that three times fast. Okay, I'm probably just being mean with that last comment, but it's kinda gross to watch people grope each other at a bar and make out on the couches. Go home, people. And what's up with the gin and tonics being $8 each? Vessel isn't fancy enough or chic enough to warrant that price and they weren't even mixed well. One star because the tree in the middle of the lounge is cool, but the changing lights are kinda cheesy. Ohhh, I need to post more.. I'm losing it here. Just don't go. Don't. Go. *** EDIT: Despite my (displayed) dislike for this club, I went to Vessel for a happy hour rateclub! event. In a more relaxed, casual setting, Vessel isn't half-bad, which will earn itself an extra star for its efforts! Drinks are still expensive -- no happy hour, here -- but the crowd of rateclub!ers were funnier and friendlier than anything you'd find here past 8 PM.
