Sip and Colr-Review
Sip and Colr (their spelling, not mine) Â is a new company located in Irvine, Tustin, Anaheim, and Huntington Beach, California. Where you get to enjoy wine and paint some gorgeous paintings.
I have not yet been here because of the lack of professionalism of the Sip and Colr owner.
I have been corresponding through emails with the owner of Sip and Colr for the past 3 weeks trying to find days I could go and enjoy some painting. Â The first time I tried going, I did not recieve a confirmation email finding out if my spot was saved therefore I didn’t know if it was going to happen so I made other plans. Â Then the second time the founder said that there weren’t enough people going and that there needed to be at least 6 seats filled for them to put on a class. Â This most recent time (yesterday would make 3) I find out 3 hours before the event was supposed to happen that it was cancelled. Â If you know me, I hate cancelled plans especially at the last minute.
I heard from him on Friday afternoon asking which class I wanted to go to (even through I had told him in an email the day before) so, I wrote back my response as quickly as I could saying that I’d like to attend the class for the following Monday…Then radio silence. Â I never heard from him all weekend (every weekend that I have been corresponding with him for that matter). Â Then yesterday happens… It was early afternoon and I hadn’t heard from him so, I decidedÂ to email him because I didn’t know what was going on with last nightsÂ event.
I get anÂ email Â 3 hours before going to the event telling meÂ that it’s been cancelled. Â Thank goodness I emailed him yesterday afternoon because if I were to show up at the restaurant (the classes take place at different restaurants) and there was not a class being heldÂ I would be very upset. According to this man, it was cancelled due to too few of people coming. Â Yes, it is understandable.
However,Â on the website it showed that there were 8 of 16 spaces left to fill. Â I had checked the website throughout the week to make sure that there was still room for me to go. Â Alas, there were still only 8 people. Â I was going to go and bring a friend to make the experience more fun. Â Now, I’m not very good at math here, but I’m going to say that 8+2=10. Â There would be enough people attending to have a class.
Honestly, I’m rather annoyed at the unprofessionalism of this business. Â I understand that people don’t want to work on the weekends however, when you’re starting a new business and a blogger writes to you giving free promotion I would think that sending an email is less than strenuous work.
The owner definitely left a sour taste in my mouth about this whole situation. Â But I said that I would write a review and that’s exactly what I’m doing.
There are severalÂ businesses in my local area that do these classes. Â I am looking forward to taking one of those.
