i thought the last SF USENIX was pretty bad; at exactly some hour
(closing hour) the waitresses streamed through the lobby bar (SF
Hilton?) and TOOK DRINKS FROM CLIENTS and forced them out.  as the son
of a man formerly in the bar business, i know it's usually customary
to let folks finish their last drink ... this wasn't an isolated
incident, either; the attitude from the staff was obviously "these
people couldn't possibly have enough money/stature-in-the-community to
be worth our time."
