>About Last Night

>In a word: AWESOME. Six hundred guests visiting from England on an all-inclusive free vacation (bands, dinners, Broadway shows and MORE, if you can believe it) celebrating absolutely nothing by drinking all of the open bar and dancing from 9:00 till 2:00. In other words, they were hammered and frisky. One girl was so drunk at last call that four people had to carry her off the dance floor while we waited for security / first aid to arrive.

One hotel employee to another: “When somebody’s that drunk, you can do whatever you want to them.”

Yuck. Can you imagine how many tourists in this hotel have been taken advantage by him and others with this mentality? Just revolting.

Anyhoo . . . so I liased with the hotel staff to manage the green room and wrangled the DJ to cover for the band while they took breaks and just hobnobbed with various types, answered questions and smiled a lot.

All in all, it was a major league coup* for Ballyhoo if I do say so myself. The best part, I get to do it all over again this Thursday. Oh, yeah, and I got paid to do it. Weird.

*A brilliantly executed stratagem; a triumph!
