    Well maybe not sucks but I am really angry. My friend and I went to see Dream Theater tonight, my first time there. Got to the entrance and started the normal process, been through it many times. Took out stuff from my pockets as I was asked, my keys, coins, phone and my vape pen. Attendant saw my vape pen and said oh you can't go in with that. No reason why just no, either throw it away or you don't go in. I have to say I was shocked, people were going in with backpacks, women with large pocketbooks, even iPads, etc. I have been to tons of shows and never had this happen, ever.

    It's a classy venue that is tired of obnoxious vapers doing their vaping wherever they please. Blame your fellow vapers, not RCMH.

    I can take cigarettes on a plane- not that I smoke. I just can't smoke on the plane. Unless the pen is on a list of banned items, I don't see the problem.

    I had one with me at the Gilmour show there a couple weeks ago, and I put it right in the belongings bin at the metal detector. I guess it depends on which guy you get at the door. The best thing to do is hide it behind your zipper or belt buckle if that's how they're going to be. There are camera rules as well, but the guy sitting next to me had a giant SLR with a ridiculous zoom lens. They need to get their **** together on what is and isn't allowed in that place. Show security is annoying everywhere.

    Smoking
    In compliance with New York City regulations, there is no smoking, including Electronic Cigarettes, permitted anywhere in Radio City Music Hall. This policy is strictly enforced. Violation of this regulation is grounds for ejection. Furthermore, all exits are final and Radio City does not issue smoking passes.

    That same classy venue has no problem supplying obviously drunk and obnoxious patrons with endless low quality booze.

    Also, they allow people to bring cigs in the venue. It's the use that's against the rules. Security guy was just being a douche.

    If you come to Pub with threads like these, you sure do need a frikin watertight, bullet-proof case, or your appeal for sympathy is gonna go ill quick-like. :mob

    But yeah, you gambled intending to vape where it was prohibited, thereby exposing yourself to the risk of a security lackey ... maybe strictly following orders, maybe just busting balls ... and you lost the gamble. It hardly qualifies as grounds to say one of Americas most venerable iconic venues now "sucks"

    If you weren't intending on using it, you should have left it in the car or at home.

    I don't make the rules, I just chose to not break them at the expense of everyone around me.

    It's not against the rules to possess the pen, just to use it.

    The above post from RCMH FAQ says "permitted anywhere in RCMH". I'd take that as no possession.

    Like I said, it's the same as cigs. You may have them on you, but you aren't allowed to "smoke" them. They aren't making people throw out their cigs at the door, either.

    The wording is poor, but they aren't saying the devices themselves aren't allowed, they are saying, "No smoking is permitted on the grounds, including (smoking or use of) e-cigs". I put one right in the bin at the metal detectors, right in front of security, and the guy who checked it out was fine with letting it in.

    I believe 'Hee Haw watching' should be hyphenated.

    :dunno

    How did we get from Dream Theater to Hee Haw?

    Someone must have the gogo juice in their vape pen today. :banana
