  This Friday, I was persuaded to try to get into Our House East at 1:15 a.m. after a night out at another bar. While waiting in a barely-moving line in the rain for 25 minutes, I started talking to one girl who was rejected at the door because she had an out-of-state ID and no photo back-ups. I thought this was ridiculous, but stayed in line because even though I, too, have an out-of-state license, I had my Northeastern photo ID with me for back-up. When my friend and I finally reached the entrance, the doorman asked for my license and then a back-up. I wasn't surprised because I had been warned. But then the doorman asked another worker what color he thought my eyes were. The worker said green/hazel. My license says blue. The doorman proceeded to confiscate both of my IDs and told me the only way I could get them back was if I was able to get a police officer to come verify them for me. He refused to ask me any questions from my license, look at my credit or debit cards that also have my name, or even look at my Facebook photos on my phone to prove that the IDs were really mine. My friend and I were forced to stand in the rain for an hour trying to call the Boston Police to send a cruiser to come help us. They said they wouldn't send anyone because it wasn't an emergency, but I would not be able to get into my dorm without the student ID that was confiscated. I am 22 years old. Both of my IDs were real, mine, and valid. The treatment I received from the Our House doormen was outrageous. When a policeman happened to drive by an hour later and helped me get my IDs back, Our House had nothing to say about wrongfully accusing me. No apology. Nothing. Please, I urge everyone to avoid this bar at all costs. Nothing but misery awaits you if you try to go there, I assure you. Connors and Punters are much better options for Northeastern students, and any of the Boylston St. bars are far superior for anyone else looking for a fun night out. Imagine how your night will go if your IDs are taken. I didn't think mine could be taken either. I'm past legal drinking age and had two real photo IDs that belonged to me. Apparently my eyes looked too green that night. And what a horrible night it turned out to be....   Read More
