Webster Theater Informative - A note about the place

Review by GothicSmurf on 2007-07-15
HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT -- I figured this is a place to inform people of different businesses.

The Webster Theater is in Hartford, CT. It's got great sound most of the time, the place is a large venue and the drink prices are reasonable. There are two stages, and there is a fairly decent snack stand with warm food that is served.

The staff there are very professional and actually very friendly. Everytime I go there, I end up spending a great deal of time talking with security (No I don't get in trouble!)

The only "issues" I have with the place are as follows:

1. There is no machine in the womens bathroom for "time of the month" needs. Women if you go, make sure to have a back up in your pocket.

2. There is no in-out which I understand, but in the case of an emergency (see above) I think bending the rules a little bit would be allowed.

3. There is no ATM on site. Although the bar does take credit/ debit cards, they have a fairly steep min. ($30). When all you're drinking is $2 sodas, you end up drinking a lot.

Not a bad place to see a large or even local show. As I said, the sound and prices are great as well as the staff there.

I did ask the GM about the other issues with out a lot of feedback on it, but I find it silly that there is nothing in the women's bathroom except paper towels and toilet paper in case of an emergency.

Over all I'd give the place 3.5 stars out of 5.

I haven't seen in years, any public woman's restroom, that has a machine that supplies sanitary needs. As a woman, I always thought it was just the norm to carry extra, no matter what time of the month it is. There is always a woman somewhere, who may need it.

An on site ATM probably isn't cost effective for them. It's pretty easy to just stop at one on the way there, for cash.

Really? I see them in almost all public restrooms. The only reason I don't generally carry an extra is because I refuse to carry a purse, especially at a concert.

Thanks for the comments, as I said it's not a bad place, but the first time I went there, I was a little suprised. Thought I'd give some "tips" to those who may be going there for the first time. :)

The last time I did see one of those vending machines, was at Walmart, and someone had broken into it.

I totally agree about not having to carry a pocketbook to a concert. Sometimes, you just have to put things into your jean pockets. You know what I mean. I don't want to give out all our female secrets to the men folk here :)

Nice review, thanks for taking the time to post it.

I haven't seen any of those machines either, in a long long time. Oh and, btw, I'm from East Hartford. Are you from CT?

Most of those machines I see are permanently out of service....

emt, you will probably appreciate this. I worked for our local school system when I first became an EMT, and my job was driving a jeep pulling a long home-built trailer, switching out 55-gal trash drums. The school system changed contradctors for the machines in question, and just dumped a huge quantity of Modess when the installed the Kotex machines. The Modess were in cardboard boxes, so I retrieved them, took them out of the3 boxes and put each one into a #10 envelope, marked Bulky Dressing, and they went into my crash kit. How is that for ingenuity?
