these girls are money hungry! waste of time and money! and the staff was not friendly
this place is gone! forever!!! there is nothing to see here! fuck off!
Why don't you have it at Double Vision's. Talk about the ultimate slap in the face to the staff and owners. If you have the balls, then that's where you need to hold it. And don't puss out with some excuse about how you would never go in the place or give them your money....blah, blah. I actually dare you to have it there. Let me know when. I wanna be there to see the fun.
Where, When its do!
I think that everyone that worked the Odyssey should have a re-union. Any ideas? Post and lets see what we come up with.
A month since the last post. This board is done..... byyeeeeeeeeeeee!
DV cant compare to what the Odyssey was.... A bunch of good honest people worked here. DV seem to be very as someone said SHADY. I dont like DV and will not be back. I think this place will end up closing up. Wish the old staff would buy it!
Yes I can say that Ed is bartending at arlean and Bobs. Not sure what nights. A lot of the old Odyssey girls go their, and customers. they have a pool table. And the drinks are priced right! Lexi I dont know where she is? As for the rest i dont have a clue
Last I knew Lexi was bartending at club caroline in saratoga. And Ed is Bartending at Arlene & Bobs in round lake. Ralph I think he gave up DJing. Not sure about Patty.
they all made it lets not forget marty he help too. But Patty ralph and ed were the big 3 that made this place work.
Patty, Ralph, Ed, Harvey and Karen did make the place they also had some pretty good girls too. They all knew how to treat their customers, and girls. The owner was the only thing holding them back. If I were to give the O a rating it would have been a 10+ Because it take more then girls and a new look to run a busness. To: Patty Ralph Ed Harvey and Karen, we miss you all and hope your summer is a good one.
that this bar could be changed back would be for the original bunkhouse owner to take it back, and hire back the old staff and girls. He knew how a bar like this should be run. And he made money doing it. In time Ally could have made this place work, she knew the customers and the area. She just needed some time to get it all put together.
Everyone that worked here gave it that special look and feel. It cant be copied. It just happened! customer and staff melded together. Most all the girls put in 110% into what they were doing. You had pool, darts , food, good drinks, And good people. Many people came not only to see the girls but to see the staff. Someone once called it a sort of Cheers type bar. One can not make it just happens with the right people.
what kind of welcome did you get at the old place? What made it special?
You came here did you not?
Afraid this bar does not know the labor laws of this state.
last I knew she was in Saratoga Club Caroline
Can anyone tell me if Lexi is still bartending anywhere????
Hey Ralph since I know you read this just want to say I miss ya. As for all the rumors maybe they are true I guess time will tell but I am at the club everyday and I have never seen anything bad or unexceptable. The owners are never even there. As for me being a brown noser whatever you must not know me cause I don't kiss anyone's a$$. I have not changed I am the same person and always will be. Sorry that I am honest. There is no one I dislike. I know one thing there are great girls workin their a$$ off in the club that are here for everyone to enjoy. The Ocrew Tyler, Athena, Leyna, and Clynn.What about them? New hot girls-Spice, candy, Jade, unique, Nicole. So cum enjoy their company.XO
Is your last letter a L?
clue: they contain the letters a, m, a few t's, an o, u and l
they all must have a good reason for not wanting to come back. Their is a lot going on behide the nice looking bar, that is not clean and good. Mark my words things dont look good for this place!
I heard tonight that Ed has taken another job bartending. At the Mill. Every down to earth person is leaving this place what does that tell you. He was here for 9 years or more.
Its not what you want but what your customers want. And this club has not got that in their head yet. We will all sit here and stop in from time to time. And see this place go down. I see the trash from other club here dancing.
Why did many of the girls and DJ leave? Not all because of Ally being fired, It was in protest to the New manager and her yard ape. Not very good at management. Now I hear Ed has taken another job bartending. Is every good staff member leaving?
I have read many comments on here and even came into the DV. This place lacks the total character that Patty, harvey and Ralph and the like gave it. And it is true, I talked with Ralph and Patty in the last days of the Odyssey. The place did not go down because of the employees, it was merely Jeff and Vavnessa decided to folow there religious beliefs. They did a heck of job with no support from them. Both Patty and Ralph gave up a lot of there time to keep that place going as smoothly as it did. Girls made more money even in the last days of the "O" than they do in the DV. What more needs to be said?
The staff made it what it was and now even though the od is gone it lives on in the hearts of many. DV will never be able to live up to how great the od was. Proof: Just go in!
This club did not close because of its employees it closed because the owner walked out because of his religous commitment. The workers kept this place going, and I would say much better then the current owners and management. So to the owner or manger here at this club, you can't even compete with the old staff.
who cares they are all loosers with no place to go. At least the old staff held this place together. They must have done something right if so many people ask for them.
what kind of specials are you running for the holiday weekend?
You know...very rarely do I see a decent comment on here. All you seem to enjoy is putting down everything. Why is that? You only seem to find delight in things that are going wrong for others. How truly sad that is...
this is just crap Brandy manage? She cant make a drink or wait on a customer. We all know who is going to call the shots. And he talks like he is in the 5th grade. Maybe to much smoke.
Is anyone surprised Ally didnt work out???? Not me!!
Hahahahahahahahahahaha ally!!!!! that was fast! i gave you 3 months. people dont change much!
How long does it take a lobster to turn red? And you all have not even reached the boiling point yet!
Nice move, get rid of the bad staff and maybe you will have a bar that I will come to. Bring back some of the old staff and I will for sure come in. Is Tiffany comming back? I saw Justice one night but have not seen her again? It would be nice to see Lexi bartending again, What about Ed and Greg?
To the last comment, Thank you. It is different being a manager, then a dancer. I don't have to compete. Less b*^%$#iness. I'm more relaxed. Now it's all about takeing time and getting to know, and re-connect with some of the customers. A lot I have missed. Maria is fabulous. She is a great person and has definately made my "A" list. Along with Spice. These girls NEVER B^%$#, work there a%$es off. And I love them for it. The rest of my team is great. I just wish they would work more shifts. I think I have a pretty good team. I just need to work out some bugs. And for those that were offended by a past post...Eric is no longer here. So please come back. I am sorry again for his comments.XOXOXO, Ally
Yes you were my favorite at the O and you are at the new place people can learn a lot from you your always pleasant and always smile. You are very professional even when you probably don't want to put up with drunks and jerks. I see you say hi to everyone unlike some of your co workers who are to good to talk to the average joe. I love ya behind the bar too I know you like that better. Great job keeping me coming back. I also enjoy Spice she is a nice girl. Ally you are very polite and professional not what I remember from the bunk days but I guess people change. Keep up the good work you three hold this place together.
Ah, in case you haven't heard...the O club is dead. Time to find a new home, and stop living in the past.
The bunkhouse and the odyessy had it! WHAT EVER THAT WAS. This new place is cold and does not fit in Maybe if the door guy did not blow smoke in your face when asking for 5 bucks that would be a start. Once you sit down the place gives off bad vibs. Just an unfriendly bar.
Hey Justice! How ya been woman? I wasn't sure where you were at these days. I thought maybe you were at DV? If you are then I'll see you there soon. If not I'll try to keep in touch somehow...*s*..Take care!
Hey whats up! Yes its the same Justice from the odyssey, hope your doing well and since i probly won't see you any time in the near future i just wanted to throw a hi back your way. Take care luv justice
Hey Maria! I will be stopping in as soon as I get a chance to. I'll post before I come over to see who all is on so I don't miss out on seeing you and Ally. I read your post. I'm so glad you put your doubts aside and gave it a try. People that talked about Ally the way they did never gave her an honest chance. She's always been very straight forward and some people couldn't handle that. For me, that's what I loved about her. You always knew where you stood with her. Like I said, I'll be stopping in soon. Looking forward to seeing you all!
I just moved back here from NYC.. and I'm looking for a place to dance. I've danced at Stiletto's and Scores in NYC. are you guys looking for dancers?
I gave it a try. Yes you Maria are a good bartender nice to talk to. Dont like the rest of the place, something is shady here!
we are not coming on your board so why come on ours. Take your trash and keep it on the DV board. Or maybe you cant read Odyssey Gentlemens club.
Sorry no power trip here. And I don't have a hard on for either place. DC's was pretty cool to work at, my favorite boss Laura is still one of my dearest friends. Deana was a great manager for the time she took over. The O, I left and got a job manageing elsewhere. More $. So, you are obviously a dancer that I may have not gotten along with at one time or another. Yes I have changed, I am more mellow here. On a business note... Mondays there will be $2.00 draft specials. Tues. $3.00 imports. And a $2.00 Shot of the night on Mon. & Tue. This Sunday we are haveing a Hoy Bodies contest. So ladies come in and win some MONEY. Doors open @ 8pm.
its just a power trip for her she has the rag on for DC and the Odyssey. She has not changed much, she can just contain herself for a longer time.
1st. Can't say I was ever arrested when I worked at the Bunk. 2nd. I know management, I've been mangement before. 3rd. Why is it people come on here with sooo much negativity? Instead of everyone trying to find slanderous things to say, try something constructive. The "O" is gone. Just like the Bunkhouse. That saddens me more. At least when it was the Bunk most people got along. It seems like the only people whining are the ones from the "O". What ever happened to the good guys that all came in way back when?? They were polite, funny, and MOST of all gentleman. People always put that bar down, but I was proud to say I worked there. It had character.
Was the manager here also a former dancer who had been arrested at the club when it was the Odyssey? Could be just a rumor, it would be slightly surprising if that were true and is now managing the club. Poor judgment on the new owners part if that is the case.
The Odyssey was a great place. The owners gave up. The employees and girls did not. The place was still making money and had customers. even with no advertizing it was doing OK. It never got shut down by the SLA, and had a good report with the local police. It seams your only drive here is to beat out DeCarlos. Why because you could not make it their and were let go? Managment is a talent... Just be cause you are good at coping dont make you a talented manager. Your all playing house out here and failing.
Yes this is the Odyssey's board. What is said here is for here. So why are you DV people getting so up tight about? RE: face facts, the Odyssey went out, not under. Not because of your so called half dead employees, or lack of support of the customers. And why are you so uptight? Maybe you need some midol or preperation H. If some of the people don't like the change, then they don't like it.
I went up to check the club out. It's nice. Why don't you all get over it. The Odyssey is dead and stinkin'. The new club is nice, the people I have encountered are nice there. Sounds like just a bunch of jealous jerks. Good luck to all. I look foward to stoping in again. There were some hotties on Friday night. And the one bartender was smokin'. If I was still dancing I would want to work there.
This is the ODYSSEY's BOARD where old customers and dances can come and talk. DV people stay on your board with your rude comments! Long live the Odyssey and all of its friends.
not the same old club anymore. No pool table. Everyone is uptight The girls were all great.. but two of them. Not as comfortable as the Odyssey, to NYC-ish the bouncer gives off a bad vib when you come to the door. Not bad for a new club. Give it some time it could be a hot spot. I do miss the pool table and the guys that came in to shoot. I will spend most of my time at the Mill where you can relax and stop off here for a quick night cap to say hi to the girls. The bartenders dont like to talk much
its called gaining respect!
Kelley....GEO Storm, went w/ me to Glens Falls and got hammered with me Kelley??? I had to drive you home?? If so Sweet!!!! I've missed you. Stop in for sure we have a ton of catching up to do. See people either loved me or hated me. I speak my mind freely. Now how can anyone dislike that, I would rather have an individual be honest than sugar coat it and phony. People don't get it. I know guys pay for an illusion and company when they go to a club. But would you really want someone to lie to you and use you, or be honest and try to have a good time w/ you? I have never been a greedy b*^%$, just a smart A$%. It makes me interesting:) XOXO Ally
I will stop in as soon as I can. I can't wait to see the place.~ Kelley
Good management would not stick up for their Employees when they are this rude to all customers. That was most likly the worst comment anyone could make. Guess you care very little about your customers. I will take my business else where and tell everyone what you think about your customers.
I love to hear myself talk.. I'm just trying to make the best of a slow start right now. For a club out in the middle of no where were doing ok.. Remember I'm not the one who has to go to clubs and pay women to dance for me because I'm to insecure to go out and talk to them on the street.. I get mine, and that's all that really matters.. You just go ahead and keep paying the bills of all the people that work in the club industry, and we'll gladly accept your money. Best, Eric
You people need to start giving the new place a chance. There was the same uproar when The Bunkhouse changed hands. Nobody knows the crap that was said when the Odessey took over because this site wasn't up then, but beleive me...it was the same petty BS. And alot of it was from you all that are so vehemently opposed to DV. I knew Ally when she was with the Bunkhouse and George had MAD FAITH in her. I think you all should do the same. She's always had kick a$$ ideas and I for one am extremely happy someone finally gave her the chance to act them out. Congrats Ally! BTW...I am posting on this link because I think my message is aimed at the ones that insist on posting here instead of the DV link.
Lay off the negativity. close...I think not. Don't hate the player hate the game. As for the web site, it's under construction. I haven't gotten the goodies from my webmaster yet. As soon as it's finished I will post the link. Wait till you see the next months Hot Bodies. Who has the hottest features??? Who has the hottest BARTENDERS??? That would be us, and they are coming in drodes. Customers are definately not complaining. And I have THE ULTIMATE BOSS. He is the greatest guy you would ever meet. So as for closing...NOT!!! I have too much invested in this to let BS try to ruine it , if you have nothing nice to say DON'T say it. Peace, XOXOXO Ally
I was wondering if they were going to most a web site?
Anyone want to start a pool when this double vision will close? not even close to number 1
I don't remember putting anyone down, or letting any of my employees do so. Get your facts straight. Supposedly, Patty didn't want to bartend anymore, heard too many negatives on Karen(and that came from 3 "O" customers), Ralph was offered a job but didn't come back for an audition. So get it straight. As for my newbies, I like younger, busty, porn star looking. And I don't see many guys arguing with that. Stop trying to bring drama. If you don't like it don't come. As to the rest, give it a chance you should have a great time. I was nice seeing some old regulars on Sat. hope to see ya'll soon. XOXOXO Ally
Double Vision is a joke it has class on the outside. And a bunch of fired DC employees, that want to play managers and dancers. Go play house in someone county. Any management that puts down people that were good workers, to blow up their own ego are just a bunch of kids. Go back to Albany
Guess some people don't lie the old crew from the Odyssey. But that is your opinion. Which is all fine and good. Or perhaps you feel threatened because some people like the old crew better than the new crew. Of which these people are entitled to thier opinion also. But yoru commment on Patty, she did her job and did it very well and with respect. Ralph didn't run the girls back to back for no reason. As for karen, well, we'll leave that one alone.
I waited for 20 min for a drink the night before I waited and waited and waited the next night. I saw many things that I am sure the SLA would not like. This club is a little to up on themselves. Lets see what you do weeks from now. Not one of these bartenders could even pretend to keep up to patty or karen. And they did not need a bar-back. dont judge a book by its cover. The Odyssey had you beat, even with poor ownership. Managment gave up and the workers Patty Ralph Ed Harvey and Karen did one fine job with what management gave them to work with. Management held them back.
I know a lot more than you think. True, they did the best of their abilities, but their abilities were extremely limited. Kind of like putting a special ed class in charge of NASA. Nice people, maybe. Competent, not at all. And while we?re at it, keep the memory of the good times, just let the Odyssey just die.
Apparently you don't know all the facts. The fact is that Patty, Harvey, Ralph and the rest of the employees are the ones that kept the O afloat. Doing what they could with what Jeff and Vanessa gave them. Of which was next to nothing! And they did a pretty darn good job at it. Patty was perhaps the most respected person of the Odyssey. They all did there job! And they did to the best of there abilities. And no one can knock them for that.
Patty & Harvey & the others were part of the crew which drove the O into the sewer- And we all know WHY some people are so adamant about the old O. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
The Odyssey shall live on in the hearts and minds of many. I think the problem is that you are having a hard time of living in the shadow's of a very unique and distintive club. And people such as Patty and Ralph and many others are what helped make the Odyssey so unique. The double vision nor even DiCarlos could duplicate the Odyssey. It was and always will be a one of a kind. No place can overshadow the Odyssey.
Yeah, Dicarlos invented the strip club with girls hanging on poles and all. Did you ever stop to think there?s a reason why Patty, Ralph, Karen & Harvey aren?t there, while others were invited back? And why are you still posting here? Dude, the Odyssey you knew and obviously loved is dead. Get over it, accept it and move on.
The Odyssey will always be the Odyssey/Bunk House, Double Vision can copy DiCarlo's, they can even try and copy the Odyssey.... But without Patty, Ralph, Karen and Harvey its just not the same. I see Ed and some of the girls are working - glad to see that. I will return and give it a chance just because of that. I saw a lot of the old customers. Wish the pool table was still in. I think the DJ was from the old Odyssey too cant remember his name. What no ZZ TOP, Lynard Skynard, not even 38 special. It would sound great on that new sound system. No saying your choice in music is bad it just needs to be mixed up a little. Some old, some new, some country, some hip hop.
See ya then tonight at 6pm. And it is all that!
Its all dressed up and no place to go.... I will give it a chance and see for myself
What don't you think the music will be the same??? Sorry but clubs should play differtent types. Not everyone wants the same thing. You try to cater to the customers. As for the pool table & dart board....that belongs at a regular pub, not a strip club. It is what it is. Just with a face lift. Stop being so negative and give the place a chance. If you don't like it, you don't have to come. Plain and simple. Yes customers make the club successful. Not negativity. You can't bash something you don't know anything about. As for other patrons, give it a shot. I have seen the place & it is beautiful. Hey Maria look foward to seeing you behind the bar. And the other beauties.
If I want a Dicarlos I will go to dicarlos. The O was differant it had it all.. No topless bar was like it. You felt like you were part of it when you walked in. You could talk to anyone working at the bar. Play some pool/shoot some darts/tip the girls. And want to come back. It did not have a fake personality. You could hear all types of music... Not just Rap, hip hop and techno. You got a mix some country. some rock, some metal, some rap. You can put all the glitter and gold you want into making this place. But dont forget about what makes a place! Its not looks that count.
The O was an eye sore, the girls had personality, but to what I hear most are staying, with a few new perks. Don't just condem a place when you don't know what it will be like. If you ate hamburgers every day you would get sick of them, try new things. It's healthy for you. Just because there are newbies in the place dosen't make it bad.
Halfmoon and Clifton Park Lost a great club, one that was not a clone. A club that was down to earth and gave a damn about its customers and workers. You can bring the glamor to clifton park but will Clifton Park want what you bring into it? ?
Attention Dancers: we are presently hireing for exotic entertainers. Please stop in for an interview between 10am & 6pm. Come work in a truly upscale environment. Newly remodeled dressing room, seperate restroom, lockers, and large vanity. Check out the new stage and all the improvements. I know I have been designing and helping in the remodeling. Who needs sleep:) Anywho, we are also hireing for DJs and are looking for a few good men! Stop by and check it out, you won't be dissapointed. The grand opening is wed. and our feature entertainer is Serena Starr. Drink specials, hot ladies, a bangin' new sound and lighting system, and one hell of a feature! see ya soon, XOXO Ally
No one is passing the buck. We were told that our drop ceiling would be in this past Wed. We can not control shipping. Trust me I am not happy, with all the advertising and word of mouth, now put off till the 26 of April. But the club looks fabulous. And I can't wait for everyone to see it. I am very sorry for any inconvenience. But trust me I want this place to open as much as the next. Please go to Double Vision's post board to be informed. Thank you, Ally G.M.
At the cost of being rude I'll attempt to put this into kind words. You may bitch and complain that the new club is not open and it is your right to speak you mind, but to put the blame onthe management is just wrong. We have put in over 400 man hours in the past month to ensure our guests satisfaction when they come through the doors. As for the meterials I would drive to Indiana if I could have gotten them here quicker, but that I just can do for obvious reasons. We do the best job we can to make people happy. I'm sorry for your disappoitment, but we will see you Wednesday and try to make it up to you. Best Eric
I hear its another false start for Double Vission. Management can put the blame on someone else. But when it comes down to it Management is to blame. You would be better off giving yourself some time for set backs. and opening on the 29th or the 30th. That way anything else you forgot can be taken care of.......
that Athena, Crystalynn, Carly, Justice, Maria, Trinity and Tyler are going to be working at the new club. I hope so... that would be great.
Crystalynn is at dicarlos, also I believe Aspen is there to.
don't know bout the first three, but justice and maria will be. best eric
The Grand Opening has been pushed back just one week... The date we now have is Saturday April 23 at 6:00. We had to order a new drop celling because the old one was unusable. I am sorry to all of you that were expecting us to open on the 16th. Sometimes when you are remodeling problems arise, but I assure you it will be worth the wait. Best Eric
its anyones guess when this place will open. If the managers cant give a good date. Who can. is it the 16th or the 28th?
Actually Eric baby, we will be open April 23 to the public. I know how hard you have been working on the club, sometimes we forget things. It's ok. So yes gentlemen come to our grand opening April 23, I promise you will not be disapointed. Good times! Love, Spice
Stop down to the club and see our progress, we have been working real hard for the past few weeks to make the club a one of a kind place. We will be open to the public on April 16th not mid june. I guess you won't know if you don't stop by. Best Eric
Heard there was another delay and the opening has been pushed back again to Mid June. Is there any truth to the fact that new ownership is trying to sell out. Also heard that no renovation have started except what little the girls have done to prepare.
Each of us has a job to do at the club. Ally is the boss and hired me, therefore I owe her a lot for giving me a chance to prove myself. When she is unable to be there to make a decision that is where I come in and make the decisions I feel she would approve of, but I always keep her informed what I have done. We are a team, and when we all come together, bosses, dj's, security and entertainers we will be a family. I just do what I can to portray Double Vision in a positive way. What we want to do is give everyone the best possible expierence to ensure our guests satisfaction and return business. I think with the team we've formed we shouldn't have an issue. Best Eric
take away Victoria's computer and do us all a favour!!!
I've met Eric a few times and he's a good voice for the club for sure and he's a pretty decent guy too- It'll be great to see him in action. However, lets not forget the person who is the heart of this place, Allyson. While nonsense was flying around on this board, she avoided the drama and kept working on getting this place up & running. She's working long hour days with little time off- chances are she's painting this or cleaning that as you read this. The Odyssey is a fond memory. Double Vision is the reality, and these guys are determined to make this place the best in the area. With dedicated people like Ally & Eric there, this DV is looking to be something special.
Eric Goodluck to you have a great time doing it.
I'm just doing my part to get things done. You have to grab the bull by the horns and run with it. Eric
Sounds like Eric is the one who is running this club? Maybe he should be? It might just run better.
From now on all future comments & questions will be posted and answered under Double Vision # 58 on the list. Thanks Eric
The VIP when built will have leather couches, tables, a 27" plazma tv, it;s own cocktail server and other treats, it will be in the corner where the DJ booth was located, there will be several packages to choose from, it wont be done for another month or so but i'll keep you all updated. As for the couch dances there is a new area being built with another couch being added, concerning the SLA I have to check with hem on the full details this or next week, again I will find an answer and let you know. Best, Eric
