THE DIRTY ARMY: Hello Nik. I don’t understand how this major creeper hasn’t been on your site before now. Jay Johari the owner of Vintage is one of the reasons nobody visits that side of Tempe. I got a job at Vintage as a “Promo” girl with promise of future bartending shifts. Jay made it seem like it was a really cool place to work during the interview, he quickly asked me if “I Partied” (within 5 minutes), even though I kept Ignoring the question, he still kept repeating it. So finally I got a start date and shift out of him (after 45 minutes of hearing him talk about his football days…lol).
My first night of work started off awesome, I couldn’t believe I was working on Mill at a bar, I am under age so I don’t get out often because of school and I don’t have a fake ID. I was told I could have a few drinks during work, so it would make me more “friendly” towards people because I seemed uptight (I wasn’t receptive to his creeping). So stupid me, I start drinking with this asshole, I’m at a bar, f*ck it, I wanted to drink!! By my 2nd drink he orders us something called a Running Naked. A 12 ounce shot with a poisonous amount of alcohol that tastes like fruit. I was fine at first, but I quickly started getting more f*cked up as every minute passed, by the time he ordered the second round of Running Nakeds, I was only making stupid decisions. Somehow I wind up in the office fighting this loser off. Last thing I remember is being carried out of the office and out the back of the bar, somehow I ended up in my living room with my Mom yelling at me.
The next day when I called Jay to ask him what happened, all he said was “he got me home safely”, I became sick to my stomach and I hung up on him. Needless to say, I never went back to work because I was humiliated and upset at myself, it didn’t help that the staff was making fun of me on Facebook and making me feel worse. I know, cry me a river right? I thought it was my fault too, but I just got word first hand from someone that works at Vintage, that he had sex with an under age promo girl after getting her wasted last week (on her first night too!!!), the police came into Vintage and confiscated his video equipment and computer because she says he raped her. They even took everyone’s cell phones I heard.
I know he did it Nik. I didn’t say anything until now because it just occurred to me that there are probably other girls that haven’t said anything. We can’t let him get away with this!! Please put him on blast Nik. I want to make sure girls know to stay away from this creeper and that his family finds out just how disgusting he really is, and to def stay away from his rapist bar!! I only wish we could sue him.
