Brief: I've been wanting to go to this for the past few months. Seems like it could be a very good date spot if you've got someone you want to go with. The $75 option for two seems expensive at face value, but if it gets you seated and drinks and, like me, you like to split the bill that's only $37.50 for a pretty balling tie.
