Is Jersey back working at the club? If she does, what days?
Been going to O‘Briens Lounge for about 4 years. It was the place to be on the weekends. Good Specials. Great Crowd. But than it got pretty bad. Plumbing was going to hell, it started to smell, the big crowds went down to like 15-20 regulars and others occasionally. I hear they are shutting down for a bit and going to be doing some changes and fixing things. So when I hear word of it‘s re-opening, even if they don‘t keep the name, I will definitely be attending. Be nice to have a Thursday-Saturday hangout again.
There is NOTHING like it in Omaha! They have been and continue to update the facility. Ramps and access are also being updated. There is a new permanently moored, THREE STORY Party Barge called the KON TIKI O that will open in 2014. This is indeed Omaha‘s best kept secret. .
Attended cruise on Friday the 13th. which should have told me to make other arrangements for dinner. Along with 30+ other Army vets who signed up for & attended, our meal featured overcooked everything. By the time my turn came to pass through the buffet line there were only forks- we were having chicken & beef; if my husband had not had his pocketknife, we would have had to pick up the meat with our fingers and chew it that way. Boat itself appears "rode hard & put away wet". Very modest furnishings & upkeep. Certainly not the type of cruise for a $40 dollar per person buffet! Access to the boat features steep gangplank, narrow walkway & ramps around numerous items along the dock. Made for difficult entry for some of our group who are handicapped Walk the footbridge for view of the river & go to a good steakhouse instead. You‘ll be much happier.
Anybody else think this place is heading to an eventual closure? It had been slowly losing business for a couple years, then when the Rhino opened it seems to have accelerated the down fall. Remember when it got busy they would open the smaller back room. When‘s the last time that happened. Seems like all the good dancers are now at the Rhino or elsewhere, Even American Dreams is not far off and there used to be a huge gap in dancer quality between the 20‘s and that place. Any good new dancers, any of the ones that have been there a while left? It will be a while before I go to the 20‘s. Anyone feel differently.
