Denver blog posts don't cry over spilled ink.

Over at our very own Backbeat blog, Dave Herrera shares a video of Filter drummer Jeff Fabb being turned away from Brothers Bar & Grill for having visible neck tattoos. Really.

My Brother's Bar has the best burgers, outdoor patio. The owner is kick ass AND gives to local charities. I never even heard of this other bar but I choose to stay away from LoDo for a reason.( it's not because of dress codes ) I agree. Go somewhere else. There are plenty of choices.

You might think people with neck tattoos wouldn't be whiney little babies, but you'd be wrong.

Yes its old fucking news now. This broke last week. All Denver Bars downtown well most anyway have bans on neck tattoos. Any Establishment reserves the right to deny service. Dont like it go elsewhere. Would you like a list of bars that have that rule??

Do not confuse My Brothers Bar with that shitty establishment. That place is called Its Brothers. My Brothers bar is an awesome place and would gladly accept anyone who walked through the door.

More power to My Brother's bar! They have the right to turn anyone away. In this case they made a move to keep their establishment the classy place it is! I don't believe they need to worry about a boycott! Love you Brother's Bar!

Actions have consequences. Is it possible he never thought that he would be banned from places and jobs for getting a neck tattoo? There are countries where he would not be allowed to use the hotel pool for those tattoos also. How can this have been a surprise?

I have some mixed feelings on this. I can see why a " dress code " May be an issue in LoDo. It's LoDo. My feelings are this way though. You are a BAR! Not a country club, tennis club or whatever rich high society people call them these days. If you want to have certain clientele, charge 20 bucks at the door and increase your liquor prices. Hipsters and thugs are cheap ass motherfuckers. They won't stay long. A good bouncer can tell if some dude or girl is just there for the eye candy or free drinks scam. Anyone notice there aren't any dress codes for the ladies like no fat chicks in skin tight clothing, whale tales, tramp stamps or fake eyebrows. I'm just saying. I've seen many a cat fight and it's hardly ever by girls you actually want to see in a cat fight. Know what I'm saying? There are plenty of bars that could care less how you are dressed and it's too bad Filter didn't have a tour guide to help them out. So my real response to this. FUCK LODO!
