    THIS WAS THE WORST EVENT I HAVE EVER BEEN TO IN MY LIFE! THE NIGHT STARTED WITH US WAITING OUTSIDE IN THE FREEZING COLD, IN A LONG LINE SHIVERING. WE FINALLY GET INSIDE TO WAIT IN ANOTHER LONG LINE TO GET ARE BRACELETS. THEN WE WAITED IN ANOTHER 45 MINUTE LINE JUST TO GET FOOD. NOW CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHY IN HEAVENS NAME THERE 2 BUFFET LINES FOR 5000 PEOPLE?? OH BUT NOT TO MENTION EVERYTIME WE NEEDED A DRINK WE WAITED IN LINE FOR LITERALLY AN HOUR!!! AFTER WE FINALLY GET A DRINK WE TRY TO GO INTO CLUB RANDEVOUS AND THERE TELLING US WE CANT BRING ARE DRINKS IN THERE. THE PLACE WAS SO REDICULOUSLY PACKED YOU COULDNT MOVE. OH AND HERES THE KICKER AFTER ALL OF US IDIOTS THAT WENT TO THIS SO CALLED “GLAMOROUS EVENT” AND PAID 150.00 A TICKET. THEY MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT ON THEIR WEBSITE THAT THE PUBLIC IS ALLOWED IN AFTER 1 OCLOCK FOR $30.00. WHICH WAS THE FURTHEST THING FROM THE TRUTH BECAUSE THEY WERE LETTING PEOPLE IN FOR FREE!!!!  AS IF THERE WASNT 5000 PEOPLE ALREADY THERE! THERE WAS 12 OF US THAT WENT, WE WERE SO EXCITED WAITING FOR THIS NIGHT TO COME. WE SPENT AN ARM AND A LEG ON THIS EVENT BETWEEN MY FIANCES NEW SUIT AND MY NEW DRESS. IM DISCUSTED THIS WAS THE WORST NEW YEARS OF MY LIFE!!!! THE NIGHT WAS NOTHING BUT LONG LINES AND A BUNCH OF SARDINES STUFFED IN TUNA CANS LIKE A BUNCH OF FOOLS. WE ALL GOT FOOLED BY THIS EVENT AND ITS APPAULING! THIS EVENT WAS COMPLETELY AND FALSELY ADVERTISED!!!! THE NIGHT DIDNT START TO LOOK UP AFTER WE LEFT! OH WAIT SORRY FORGOT THIS ONE… WHILE WE WERE WAITING IN LINE FOR ARE DRINK AND WERE A 45 MIN INTO THIS WAIT, A SECURITY GAURD STARTS SHOVING THREW THE CROWD WITH WHAT HE SAYS IS MARK CROCES COUSIN SO HE CAN SKIP EVERYONE AND GET HIS DRINK! I COULD REALLY GO ON AND ON ABOUT THIS REDICULOUS EVENT!

    Lydia, we hope you’ve directed your concerns to the folks at the Statler. You’re not alone. Sounds like a lot of WNYers were miffed. We hope something positive comes from this negative experience. We’ll be sure to post information if there’s some type of make-up event in the future. -SJ, Buffalo.com
