Lemp Brewpub social media disaster, think before you share a post!

According to the hype on the social media, even the people who haven't been to Lemp are posting and sharing negatively. I mean c'mon if you are frustrated over something don't take it out on these guys. These days before the judicial system, the social media gives its verdict. So we think we are above the law and for such cases which take years in our country, we'll play our personal fastrack court and give our judgement. I understand we are Indians and like to add masala to everything, but this my friend was too overrated!

Now wont start giving my personal opinions about the case like most people, because it still needs a lot of investigation, but what I can do is share several experiences I have had at Lemp with my friends.

"According to me", its the best place in Gurgaon if you don't have an extra rich pocket with keys of a BMW in them, and still want to chill with your friends and have a fine chilled beer. To take out time from that busy life and escape into a beautiful ambiance & enjoying a good crowd that is quite rare in Gurgaon.

Now, about the people sharing and posting negatively about Lemp. The hospitality in Lemp is above all brewpubs in the town. Already there must have been a lot of social marketing companies that would have been paid for this negative publicity of the pub by the rival companies due to its rapid booming reputation, please don't post and share just because you heard it somewhere and want to join in with this so called social cause when you aren't even aware of those incidents. What you people did only helped those internet marketing companies, and the sad part my friends, you worked for them for free!

Its funny how people can act upon something on knowing just one side of the story. Am sure there was no one who approached Lemp before making comments and accusing zomato. Am sure even after doing that the place they would log in before their dinner is Zomato itself. Apart from that the story sounds too made up after two paragraphs, I mean even Gabbar in Sholay sounded more peaceful.

The guy accuses Lemp of passing lewd comments on a girl, a misuse of the recently awakened respect for ladies in our country, just to spark his blog. Honestly, first of all I can't believe a place like Lemp which welcomes lady DJs to play at their Brewpub would do that. Besides we never faced such problems.

So folks, next time before you post or share such things, please know that the damage done through social media cannot be undone so easily. I'm just trying to save a place I love in my city, not defending anyone or making a judgement. And for those guys, if things like these happen with you at some point in life, which I doubt might have happened at Lemp, make sure you call your parents immediately before becoming a personal investigating detective for hours. Now if you really have those detective fantasies, do something better than just clicking pictures of the staff, because it is no evidence at all. Avoid creating scenes over pity issues like Hawaiian FoodPeace out Gurgaon! Love y'all!
