    We happened to be there one night when an off duty employee made a scene with a patron.
    BOTH were drunk.
    Renee (whom we've met before) didn't do much to stop this very disturbing event though she was steps away.
    We don't go out to see this sort of thing and frankly, makes us nervous to go back.
    We want her to succeed.
    We also want her to handle these types of things WHILE they happen.
