New Year’s Eve at a Hotel

Hallway Dark Spot

Hallway Dark Spot

I went to a big New Year’s eve party at a local hotel.  They had a nice buffet, a Salsa band, and the deal included a room.  At midnight all of the electronic keys stopped working.  Apparently, they knew this was going to happen because they had new keys waiting at the desk for hundreds of guests.  Those keys did not work and someone had to let everyone in with a hard master key.  The hotel gave us a $75 credit, and will remain nameless.  I am still there…
