Myself and 3 friends went to Marathon Taverna last night. We were not required to show ID to enter, and went in and sat at the back of the bar. Almost immediately, one of the bouncers came up to me and asked to speak to me outside. I complied without any resistance. He told me that "2 people told me you flipped me off" which was completely untrue, and I responded as such. We were at this time right at the threshold of the font door. He repeated his claim, and I also did. I did not offer any resistance other than verbally telling him that the claims were untrue, and in a calm, non-threatening voice. I asked to see who these people were to substantiate his claim. At this point, the bouncer did not reply as he knew his claims were untrue, and shoved me. I slid backward down the slope to the door and fell down onto the sidewalk because I was wearing dress shoes with little grip. I skinned my knee and tore a hole in my pants and we left. There is no reason to be assaulted by the employees of a business in this manner for no reason whatsoever other than stating that their claims of my behavior is untrue and asking them to produce the witnesses they claim. Further, this business is located on Burnside, which in my opinion is a busy street even at night and someone pushing patrons at the door on the narrow sidewalk could very easily result in someone falling into the street and having serious injury if a car is driving by. I used to go to Marathon quite often, but highly unprofessional treatment and is potentially very dangerous. I will never go here again and recommend that you do not subject yourself to this possibility either.
