I appreciate that you're being diplomatic about Cavanaugh's. But it's not really part of the comedy community so I think it's fine to say that the "issues with management" are really "issues that management has with black people."

The people who run Cavanaugh's are racists and should be spat upon. I rebuke thee, I say three times. So anyone who goes there should stop.

Kent, you're right and I'm not trying to downplay it - I just didn't want to get too specific.

But yeah, screw that place.
