I just got this email from Yelp:

Hi Justin,

We’re writing to let you know that we’ve removed your review of Maui Sugar Mill Saloon. Our Support team has determined that it falls outside our Content Guidelines because it contains personal attacks.

We understand you may have had an exceptionally bad experience. While we welcome our reviewers to share their experiences and to be as descriptive as possible in those accounts, we ask that they avoid taking their grievances to a personal level.

Goddamn right my review contained personal attacks! You know, just like the sweaty redneck (a person the bar employs) who came out into the parking lot and personally attacked me on the way to my car!

So, since Yelp doesn’t have the sack to keep the review up, I’m gonna post it here for everyone to enjoy in perpetuity. Here’s hoping this post (or this post, for that matter) are the first things to pop up when you Google “Maui Sugar Mill Saloon” or “Buck Stallion.”


I used to love this place for their Tuesday night karaoke with Lenny and Beth. Then they went and hired some loud-mouthed fuckhole in a cowboy hat who ruined everything for everyone. We complained to the owner who told us “too bad” and then also left a note expressing our displeasure with the new offensive hire.

Following that, Tons ‘O’ Fun followed us out to the parking lot and confronted us with his sweaty chest. He called us pussies, and then asked what we did for a living that was so important. When confronted back, he ran inside and read our letter from the stage, which said: “This guy is worse than Jeffrey Dahmer. He’s worse than Hitler. He’s worse than Jeffrey Dahmer fucking Hitler.” And seriously, he is.

So if you want to hang out with a guy who is WORSE than a cannibal having coitus with a genocidal maniac, go check out karaoke Tuesdays at Maui Sugar Mill Saloon, which is owned by a rude A-hole!

Re: To Owner Tim C.’s comment below:

Actually, that’s NOT what you said. Guess you forgot since you were more concerned with your pool game than you were with your customers. And even if you HAD said that, you let an employee—a face of your BUSINESS—run out into the parking lot, confront someone, call them a “pussy,” and get in their face. Says a lot about the person in charge of hiring people to represent their bar.

You also forgot to include the adjective “obnoxious” in your description of a typical karaoke Tuesday at Maui Sugar Mill Saloon. Guess I’ll let that slide though, since I have more important things to worry about.

Like this pool game.
