Any "Yelpers" here? If not, what do you think about this website?

I've had some success trying places that were rated highly by Yelp, but I also find it hilarious what some of peoples complaints are

I'm a "yelper" but I'd rather rank the spot, and no reviews.

I just assume most "yelpers" are somewhat snobs, so I don't take reviews/comments that serious. I love the fact I can check out the menu/happy hour, and the pics of their meals. That's what gets me going....check out the food pics, and then I'm ready to eat/try it out.

Yeah, I use it from time to time if I'm looking for somewhere new.

I've written only one review on there, but it was such a bad night top to bottom that I couldn't help but do otherwise. Apparently other people have written bad reviews about this place (which was also on Kitchen Nightmares) and heard back from the owner, but I sure as hell didn't. Ah well.

Some people gives 2 stars to places with great food, but place is too small for them. These same people also gives 4 stars to places with mediocre food, tiny servings, but the place is spacious yet cozy. Wtf. There should be standards on reviewing the place and the ratings for the place and their food should be independent. I'm starting a review site and will call it Welp!

I remember reading one of the review similar to this...

I'm taking out 2 stars because the parking is too small and I can't park to save my life.

that strip club is one of the more popular ones down here... definitely has one of the better assortment of good-looking, not strung out on heroin-looking strippers

Did your buddy ask for the entire 40k to be paid in dollar bills?

haha I figured you might know the place being that it was around your neck of the woods. Found Orlando's review on some other website, but it's freakin hilarious:

"Their skin is always cold. They're kind of like lizards. Lizards that show you their genitals for money."

and

"The guys sitting right up on the stage eating chicken wings are usually the ones to tip the most."

orlando is like miami's strip club's version of tony bourdain

my friend's story is actually kind of funny. he was leaving BT and was finishing a drink in his hand. he was definitely drunk and probably high too, so he mistakenly thought the cup was a plastic one. well, when he finished his drink, he threw it in the trash, prompting 2 bouncers to approach him (as if the cup had some detector on it that let them know one of thei $0.99 glass cups just went to waste). the bouncers toss him outside and then a 3rd bouncer comes up from behind and sucker punches him in the head. at this point, my friend and his buddies there with him started trying to get the **** outta dodge, but the bouncers basically started royal rumble in the parking lot.

long story short, the entire episode was caught on surveillance tape, but because BT had about 50 pending lawsuits, the most he could get was $40K. still... that much for catching a beating ain't such a bad deal.
