Famlius Interruptus

Cousin from Austin was in town over the weekend for a get away from the kids trip. It was a surprise visit but still a great one. We gathered at Danton's, a seafood place near the Montrose bridge. A great evening of Gumbo and Martinis mixed with venting and dreaming.

We missed each other on Saturday somewhere between their massages and facials and my going downtown to see Dark Knight. We really intended to try Pasha on Sunday but they checked out of their hotel at 3am on Sunday morning. Apparently a frat party broke out in the room next door and hotel security could not get the situation in order even after three attempts. Suckage for them since they get few opportunities to get away. Also a good data point for me not to stay at or recommend Hotel Zsa Zsa. I kinda got the feeling it was a self-congratulatory, bubble-world clientele anyway.

Ridiculous, right? I dont know if they got comped but I wouldnt be likely to stay there again if I were them.

It is pretty sad that inconsiderate people would ruin the weekend for everyone else around them. Really sad that the hotel couldn't get the situation under control.

Yes John, sad. And really sad when you are paying $300/night!
