VIP Club San Miguel: "The Smart Fit"

May 2, 2007


    First, some in-house business. Members please be aware regarding one of the few limitations pertaining to Your Club and its Card that members are supposed to abide by. We've had a few instances, very few, where members haven't adhered to the four person maximum rule and that all charges are tallied on the same bill. Some establishments are more liberal than others about this rule, other are not!  If your party is larger than four and you plan on visiting a VIP Club establishment, when arriving, seek out the manager or owner, tell them about how many in your party and how they would like to handle it. Please, regardless of what might seem like common sense (with the notion about more diners, more business etc.) don't argue. That's the way it is and debating the policy can alienate Your Club in the view of the establishment. Nobody likes to be told how they should run their business. Thanks!
