Frequently Answered Questions

June 5, 2013

FAQ blog

We get a LOT of questions zinged at us, from customers to friends, employees to tax collectors. And some we even know how to answer.

Rummaging through our fan mail (at least three envelopes worth), we decided to post answers to common questions about the Feedback Lounge for your facial expression amusement. With that…

WHAT ARE IN THOSE JARS BEHIND THE BAR?

Tempted to answer “stuff we found out on the sidewalk.” But that woudn’t sell very many cocktails. The correct response is market fresh fruit, herbs, grains, assorted spices, all of which is soaking in everything from tequila, vodka, rum, bourbon, gin… Matt Johnson, creator of said infusions, prefers to make his own hybrids rather than by ’em from Boozelandia, or “liquor stores.” This is what makes our house made cocktails taste so much better than that overpriced, bland pond water you get over the counter.

WHO DESIGNS THE BAND POSTERS FOR THE UPCOMING SHOWS?

99.9 percent of them are designed by me, with the other .01 percent being created by the upcoming band themselves. Sometimes I have just enough spare time to get kinda artful. Other times I just phone it in as my day job (ironically not the Feedback) takes up MOST OF MY LIFE.

WHO DOES YOUR WEBSITE?

Me.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU DO LIVE MUSIC?

If you pay attention to the posters in the bar and our website/Facebook/Twitter, you’ll see that we do live music at least once a week (Saturdays) and often Fridays as well. There’s never a cover charge, and we try and bring in customer band favs as well as new stuff.

HOW DO I GET MY BAND A SHOW HERE?

E-mail us or drop by one of those outdated CDs that hardly anyone plays anymore, thank you very much Digital Age.

HOW DO I APPLY FOR A JOB HERE?

Same as you would anywhere else. First, you must answer three questions from the troll that lives in our dumpster. Correct responses will advance you to a series of quests designed to test the limits of your sanity and…

Sorry – I get carried away when no one is editing me. You can drop off a resume or e-mail it to Gia at feedbackloungegia@gmail.com. Once Gia goes through the resumes (and she looks at ALL of them), she’ll reach out to you if you got what it takes, has you come in for a chat, and then puts you through a series of quests designed to test the limits of your sanity and… Um, sorry. Gia should be the one responding to this question. I am far too irresponsible for such a…quest.

I KNOW YOU’RE A BAR, BUT CAN I BRING MY UNDERAGE KID INTO THE BACK AREA SINCE THE MAIN BAR IS UP FRONT?

Nope – state law. Some bars, however, have sectioned off areas that allow them to let kids in up to 10PM. (They applied through the Liquor Control Board to get permisssion to do that.) Don’t get us wrong – we like kids. But we want to provide a place were adults could get away from them for a while.

There are plenty more questions, but this should make it easier for you to finally get some closure on a few things.

Got a question? Just ask – feedbacklounge@gmail.com
