    So the plan for last night was to meet up with a few friends and head down to system for Tilt at about 1am. Since the theme of the party was "shades of blue", I said what the fuck and dressed in all blue because as most of you know, wearing all blue was supposed to get you in for $10 instead of the regular $20 cover.

    I double checked the flyer for the party to make sure that there was no time limit (i.e. before 12) or any other rules to follow, and there weren't. So I show up there right at about 1am, absolutely no line-up at all outside so things are looking good. So I get checked, head over to the counter to pay and am immediately greeted with a big $25 cover sign. So we ask what's up with the cover, and they tell us that the "all blue" discount ended at 12, and regular cover is now $25.

    I couldn't fucking believe it, I know that Breathe is sometimes flakey when it comes to sticking to the cover prices/times listed on their flyers, but this was just pushing it too far. So we said fuck it and left. Not because of the money, I could care less about spending $25 for a party, I just dropped $70 for tickets to bal en blanc. But to so blatantly lie to your customers is ridiculous, and honestly I've had enough of their shite.

    You advertise telling people to wear blue for the party so they can get a discount. Then when the people show up there's no discount? What the fuck is that? It's one of the most dishonest things I've encountered in the whole club/party scene.

    At first I thought they probably didn't draw a very big crowd, considering that there was no line-up at 1am and that it was going up against the nokia party, and that was why they raised the price. But from what I've heard that wasn't the case at all, the club was pretty much packed. So they have absolutely no excuse for the shite they pulled, except to line their own pockets.

    I know there are quite a few people on this board that have connections to Breathe/System, and you'll probably be jumping to defend them. But you can't deny that what they did was absolutely, totally dishonest, and that they should treat their clientele with more respect.

    It's going to be along time before I hand over my cash to Breathe/System again.

    I heard some 'blue' people only got $5.00 off and so forth. Some kind of sliding scale of Blue Perhaps???

    Matt <--- never had 'issues' with System

    "Now...what makes this party even more special than it's superb DJ line-up is the fact that Breathe is doing what no other club has ever done before. We're giving you the chance to experience the Quivver and Parks & Wilson and Mark Scaife for free !!! That's right...all you have to do is dress yourself in shades of blue and arrive at the club before midnight and, providing you've gone all out with your blue attire, we'll let you into the club without paying cover !!! Dress yourself up in a reasonable amount of blue and we'll drop the cover to $10 before midnight.
    (Regular cover is $20 before 12:00am and $25 after)."

    Quoted from their mailing list email sent 02/04/02.

    here they say it is free...

    Looking at the wording, it appears as though the distinction between paying $10 and getting in for free is having some blue and being dressed all in blue, respectively.

    *shrugs*

    I don't know. I didn't write it up, I wasn't there, just posting what they said in the email ahead of time.

    I'm glad that others are finally realizing that Breathe sucks.

    ^^^ I totally and completely disagree Housey D! I always have a good time there.

    I was going a bit too often for a while - so I don't go as much as I use too - but I always have a wicked time when I'm there.
    I like the staff @ Sys and the promoter - and it is by far the best progressive in the city!

    You guys are missing the point.

    They stole the name for the party. Not Safe!.

    If you take O out of point what do you get?

    My advice is just stop going. So what, system brings in some of the better dj's that pass through Toronto, so what! I think how they run their operation is entirely BUNK! When your forget to respect your clientele you lose your business.

    It's not like the sound is awesome or anything, it sucks period! there is no debate.
    It's not like there is any decor, it is lame sorry i'll bring some old drapes from home next time and donate them to the decor crew. please nothing creative about filling empty space.
    The bouncers, used to be quality now it's almost a strip search going in and attitude please did they hire on the turbo bouncers or something?
    And all this for regularly $20 what kind of fool would pay that week in and week out? Seriously given size and what the club has to offer, why is it amongst one of the more expensive clubs in the city? other than talent roster none of it's patrons money has been re-invested into anything else.

    Please! System needs to respect, otherwise it will end up the same was it was that summer when the Lifeforce crew left D-E-A-D!
