you say that like tim is doing cliff a favor....i think it\'s the other way around if anything

Cliff makes money because tim packs the place everytime he is there, and tim makes money because he has his tip cup. Its a good deal for both of them.

Between Callahan\'s and Wooster Steak & Grille, I\'ve been to Cliff\'s establishments many many times.  I\'ve been to every show Tiim has played there, and spent a ton of $ on drinks each time.  
      2 weeks ago was the last time I\'ll ever give him my business. Very unfortunate, considering I love seeing Tim\'s acoustic sets.  Cliff came up to my friend and I at the bar (the rest of the seats were taken) & told us that since my friend (the DD for the night) wasn\'t having a "real drink" (his words), then we both had to go stand by the door with everyone else.  When I started to resond, he said that we were costing him $ by sitting there.
     I appreciate what the guy has done by giving us someplace to see Tim (& friends), both at Wooster St. & Callahan\'s, but I think that he needs to show some appreciation for the people that come there on a regular basis and spend a good amount of $ to enjoy themselves.  Maybe it\'s time to start looking at other places for Tim to play?

if i\'m not working....you know i\'ll be trying....and everyone should give cliff a pass....he\'s obviously under some pressure and this thing was bugging him...he handled it poorly, but if you condemn everyone in your life that does that, everytime, there won\'t be many left.....we all go south every now and again and you will too (that\'s the figurative you....not you :confused:.)..we should all go and order some food (he has a bar menu with burgers and crab cakes etc...) and make everyone involved, including cliff, feel better....or we could just get pissed and let it ruin what has been a really fun time....it\'s up to you (the figurative one!)

gotta agree. I get down to new haven so little lately that theres no way in hell I\'m gonna buy food at cliffs with salleys right across the street. I dont drink. if he wants to charge me a cover, thats fine, but I think he was just frustrated last week and went about it all wrong.

i feel you are both missing my point. i, of all people, do understand how pizza can do that to a person, but how do you think it makes cliff feel to watch some portion of his "audience" (including the performer) walk in from across the street at another restaurant EVERY week when almost noone has eaten food at his place during this whole deal. i ate dinner there one wednesday night and it was excellent but i don\'t know of anyone else who has eaten there from our group. anybody? he\'s also thrown out plates of fries for everyone just cause i asked. it would be a gesture to turn out and have a meal there in the interest of good will and respect. that being all said......i\'m working overtime so i cain\'t come this week.....hope to see you all in asbury park.

paul, i will be returning early on sunday to be home for work so if you were to join us, i WILL be coming home on time for work...think about it :)

Common Courtesy from least coasters? I did not know it existed. Is it considered a disease out there or what?

well do you buy food at every bar that serves food when you go to a show?

If i was going to a bar near every week I would.
As I am not a big drinker but more an avid fan of cannabis yes I do order food @ bars I go to for shows (if available) most of the time :)

i am not really down with anything on cliff\'s menu.  besides, the last thing people need to be eating at around 9-9:30 is fried food or steak.

Well I have never eaten there so i will defer to you there. As for dietary restrictions connected to time I am not really concerned w/ my weight believe me. I guess I just understand Duane\'s point that if a group of you consistently attend Tim\'s show there and do not spend any $$ it could be irritating to the owner. Throw Cliff a Bone.
 I mean he let\'s Tim play every week if he wants yeah? That has got to be worth it . Though I would\'nt know as I have yet to HEAR any of Tim\'s solo acoustic shows. HINT HINT
