If the OP's reviews were well-written, concise, not under the influence of alcohol and didn't constantly characterize him as white/educated, while everyone else in this city is seemingly Mexican/Hispanic, I wouldn't take issue. Likely, nor would anyone else here on CD. He reaped what he sowed. He knew what he was planting.

Bowie: I feel we have been staying on-topic here, especially well considering how much trolling has been done by some for more of a fight. This thread didn't start out as just a 'normal review thread' to begin with and, consequentially, shouldn't be treated as such. When an OP brings in more than just the typical opinion on an establishment, you've got to expect the thread to morph. So far, it's been pretty conversational, but if suddenly we all have to go back to talking about the club scene in Stone Oak, it might be better to change the title of the thread to better reflect what's been said so far.

I will say that I 100% do agree with you as well, BN. Right from the get, I also do not believe that this thread started out as a "normal review thread".....{and I myself have no doubt clubbed and partied so much more for so many more years than the OP probably ever has, I do hereby thusly duly concretely-sense herein}


I will confess that when Imperfect-Me was younger I myself took perhaps a bit too long in finally one day realizing that oftentimes *HOW* I SAID SOMETHING TO THE WORLD INDEED *DID* MATTER.


It's not just about *what* I was saying that mattered {even though that itself is also important, as many know}.....


It also took Denseheaded-Me a bit too long in finally one day waking-up and realizing when others were actually teaching me things I knew nothing about.....*SO THAT I WOULD KNOW*.....


Embarrassing.......

How you managed to complete your education at UTSA with your current attitude towards 'mexicans' baffles me. UTSA ranks (or did rank) 4th in the nation with degrees awarded to hispanics as I recall reading somewhere.

I think you are just nuts.

Easy, do what every realistic university student does to ease their professors delusions along. Supply them with exactly what they want to hear/see/read/grade.




Btw I have no problem with Mexicans, never have. Nor did I ever say that I did. Stating that one particular group of people can be found at a certain place does not imply racism it implies using ones eye balls.

... And that would be the difference between just going to school and actually getting an education. Speaks volumes about not only you (as a student), but what might be going on over at UTSA. One of the best things about a University education is the ongoing dialogue between the class and professor, being able to call bs as long as you can back it up and generally figuring out what kind of adult you want to become.

Realistic university student? Don't speak for us all. I finished my undergrad Ivy League and was just accepted into Kellogg in Chicago... Not once in all of those years did I feel the need to conform to someone else's educational opinion.

I don't care what you "felt the need to do", don't apply that to me. To each their own. I don't assume I speak for everyone, that would be you assuming that.

Grades are all that matters and I attained those so take a chill pill. Not everyone cares about wholeheartedly swallowing the dribble espoused at universities. Believe it or not some are just there for what it can possibly bring, a job, which I have, so again, take a chill pill.

LOL. I think it would be nearly impossible for this thread to stay on topic.

3card, have you been to The Studio? It often has r&b artists such as Ginuwine and Next performing and jazz bands. It plays a lot of 90s music with some new stuff thrown in, but it's a 30 and up club and located on Perrin Beitel.

Hey they sing some R&B karaoke songs on Sunday Nights at the Mine Shaft Saloon near 410 and Broadway. I think it gets going about 10PM. A small but diverse crowd it seems.

Had a shiner and the guy took my 5$ and gave me nothing back and turned away, yeah one of those places so beware service is not a priority here. --Super Crowded--

In defense of Austinn it seems his review of Cielito Lounge was spot on.

This is how The Current reviews it in regards to clientele.

You might feel like you accidentally stepped into a posh Mexico City disco when you walk through the door of Cielito Lounge. The young, privileged set can be spotted here, dancing the night away and gossiping over mojitos.
San Antonio Current: Cielito Lounge

This is what on reviewer at stoneoaknightlife.com had to say regarding the service.

Too many people in a small place. 10 minutes to order a drink and 10 more minutes to get that same drink.
