Brave Lounge Owner Cracks Down On Stingy Black Professionals

The Black PR Society of New York had its summer mixer at the huge rooftop lounge at 230 Fifth in Manhattan on Wednesday night. But apparently the 40-person group hadn't reserved it for a private event or something (although the website says "Reservations are not necessary since we can very comfortably accommodate over 1,000 guests at the same time"). So the club's owner, Steven Greenberg, did what any logical, businesslike man would do when he sees 40 black professionals at his lounge listening to a speech from a prominent national political pundit: "I told them, 'I would like all of you out of here immediately.'"

Yes, of course! Throw the bums out for not spending money quickly enough! Damn this policy:

Admission Policy

230 Fifth welcomes everyone over 21 years of age and dressed appropriately. Admission is free and there is no cover charge; there are no minimum purchases required.

And damn this policy as well!:

Reservations

Reservations are not necessary since we can very comfortably accommodate over 1,000 guests at the same time. Seating is always available to all guests who visit 230 Fifth.

Greenberg reportedly calmed down after the group put its orders in-probably for stereotypical, troublemaking black food.
