When will the Frederick Douglass Community Resource Center live up to it's namesake's name and truly educate this community as opposed to being a party venue for ghetto birthday parties? It's shameful how these "events" end up leaving this community with loud music and litter up and down our street. Where are the children that are being educated at this place? Where are the computers? What are the regular hours and why aren't the doors open to the public like other resource centers? What a laugh. No wonder we get no respect.
Mediocre food and horrendous service. A bit unclean as well.
The club security is very strict and a little ignorant. They have never seen a out of country license or ID before and they will be asshole towards you so make sure bring your passport or don't go there at all.
Couldn't finish my grinder sandwich flavors did not mix and my husbands jambalaya had overcooked dry chicken in it. We were not offered anything when we complained but the bill. Didn't take any of the leftovers home over 3/4 of meal. All we were offered was excuses. Will never be back!
Was Harassed by drunk.
- While watching a football game here with my son we were verbally harassed by a person that was obviously very drunk and did not like our team and seemed to want to fight. I told the owner that he needed to be cut off, but to quell the situation he gave everybody a free drink including the drunk! We only had one beer each and never took the free drink while the drunk downed his right away. We watched as the drunk left the building and my son followed him out to get his plate number and call the authorities. The owner then told us that we could cost him his license and demanded we leave. Wow! Just wanted to enjoy a football game with my son.
Terrible service, overpriced drinks and mediocre food. The only reason to go to Nola's is the live music and proximity to the beach in the summer.
On September 9, we attended the Clothesline Festival, a fundraiser for the Memorial Art Gallery. Geva had a table there, and we stopped to see what was coming up. The attendee was especially enthused about "44 Plays for 44 Presidents". Turns out it was scheduled for the weekend of our wedding anniversary. So when we got home, I called to purchase tickets. The person at the box office seemed especially inept, calling back twice in short order to correct erroneous information he had given me. This should have been a sign that I should just scrap these plans and look for something else to do. Late Friday afternoon on the weekend of the performance, we get a call from Geva saying they had overbooked and we did not in fact have tickets to the show. Mind you, our credit card had already been charged, and this was about 24 hours before the performance. They offered to give us seats to some other production on some other date, but that would not salvage our anniversary celebration. They even tried to charge us some service fee rather than give us a full refund (my threats caused them to re-consider THAT idea). I'm not sure what's happening in the Geva office, but suffice to say that we will not be ever attending this venue for any reason. If you want some great theater in western NY, I suggest you head to Buffalo, where they know how to run a theater and a theater district -- http://www.theatreallianceofbuffalo.com.
