Default Pomona haters

So over the weekend, I was in Pomona, Tequila Hoppers to be exact. I went to visit some friends and ended up staying till last call. From the jumpoff I knew this place was a little questionable but whatever, i had good company i was meeting. I noticed getting into my car that there are circular cracks on the windshield and then in the morning it was massive cracks going from the drivers to the passenger roofish area.

Anyways long story short i was pissed but what could I do. It was 230 and the place was closing, they didn't have cameras or witnesses and I wasn't in my area (LA). To top it off friends were saying to call the police but we had been drinking. We went to King Taco after and still was in distraught over what happened. The lot was filled with 300's and hoopties. I shoulda known better and what sucks is that the bouncers and staff didn't give two craps.

Don't go to that place and Pomona, i thought LA was all love?

Your windshield got keyed? Hopefully insurance will cover that. Gotta be selective where you park your car. I'm paranoid when I park my Z at a mall lot.

Not keyed. It's cracked. Like some type of circular object hit it and then made that circular crack and spider cracks that can't be really seen in the pictures. I was selective, I parked it right next to my friends black 300 under a well lit area about 20 feet in front of the entrance. And it was the ONLY car that was damaged.

I usually hang out at tequilla hoppers in upland on the weekdays to play some pool and the regulars are pretty cool even though me and my friends are the only Filipinos in there. Maybe it was just a unlucky night

Just TERRIBLE !!

Hopefully you can work something out with your insurance and repair this matter soon!!! My buddy had AAA and reported as a "vandalism" and took care of him. Of couse no idea what hpnd with his insurance rate after that matter took place..

I really don't think it's ONLY the Pomona ,maybe "MIDSHIP909" is right, this could be just ONE OF THOSE NIGHT, just hpnd to be your car as a victim.

I think the place your referring to is in upland, not Pomona. I've lived in parts of Pomona for the past 6 years and there is certainly some sketchy parts (just as there is in any larger city). If you were to hang out in Pomona the best spots would be in downtown Pomona, the arts colony to be exact. I've taken my s2000, and friends 335 down there plenty of times with no issue.

^^He's right because Tequila Hoppers is actually in Upland.

Pomona is mostly on the other side of the 10.

Okay so insurance is taking care of it. Still a little pissy pissy because it's me paying the deductible.

As far as the location, yeah it's Upland, but I mean I consider anything past Diamond Bar over the hill is Pomona lol. I mean don't get me wrong, the place was cool for drinks and on point for a good time...but just how the workers were after trying to get help and they didn't give two ****s. Honestly the crowd was all right and who knows maybe it was just one of those nights. Whatever the case I'm not going back there.

I probably will be going out to Pomona area often now just need to find a better area. I'll check out downtown Pomona at the arts district.

Midship909 I'm filipino too and so were two of my friends who were with me. I parked right next to my friends new chrysler 300 and she had no problem whatsoever. Just a fluke for the night but from what I was getting from there, there are usually fights that pop off.

Again I'm all bueno, whats done is done and just saying...there are haters out there and i hope karma comes back to them 100 fold.

Sorry this happened to you. I used to live in Pomona and it's a pretty rough place. Someone egged my IS350 after 4 days of bringing her home.
