    I thought I would go to Twin Peaks to watch the game yesterday. Walk in the door, and I'm greeted by a bunch of girls all wearing Hawkeye gear. Sit at the bar and they have the volume turned up for the Hawk game, but muted on the Cyclone game. Even after the Iowa game was over, instead of turning up the volume of the ISU game, they just turned music on instead. Add all this to the fact that I was completely ignored after I got my food. It took me getting up and approaching a server to even get my check. I got the feeling that the owner doesn't want money from Cyclone fans. I'm happy to oblige. Thought other Cyclone fans might feel the same.

    This thread sounds eerily familiar.

    DAMN STRAIGHT :jimlad:


    But seriously, if I walked into a business where everyone was wearing Hawk gear I would have just walked out.

    I bet you got bad service because they were Hawkeye fans.

    I actually had two women tell me yesterday while tailgating that they like the Hawkeyes better because they can get Hawkeye stuff at Victoria's Secret.

    Solid reasoning.

    No business ever survives very long in that spot anyway - it's cursed. With this story, however, I will savor cheering it's demise.

    I'm sure the bad service was just a coincidence (I hope) but piled on top of the less than welcoming atmosphere it made for an unpleasant experience. Have to say the food was good though. And I wasn't at the game because I had to work yesterday, Richard.

    Maybe they thought you were an ugly loner.

    This story is incomplete without knowing how much you did or did not tip them.

    Ugly loners leave great tips if you show them a little attention.
