We opened the club a couple weeks ago – I’m still recovering.
On the one hand it was great – 300+ people showed up, a beautiful space, really nice vibe, a mix South African and other African guests. My favorites were the Congolese diamond traders that showed up early and didn’t speak English but kept changing US$100 bills with me – the new ones I had never seen before and thankfully were not counterfeit.
On the other hand it was a rough – alcohol stolen, we lost money because not enough people came and they didn’t drink enough, some of us worked our asses off while it seemed the bartenders thought their job was just to keep oiling their chests and do a police uniform dance/strip tease that went on for a very long time.
We’ll see how the next one goes . . . .
