Tipping At The Cash Register: Are You Bleeping Kidding?

I was at the Cosmopolitan in need of a drink. Instead of paying $15 at the Chandelier Bar, I went to the gift shop and scored a big Bud Light for the superb value...

Aloft Denver Airport: The Cure For Exhaustion

The only SPG hotel that is actually at Denver Airport is the Westin. Most ‘airport hotels’ are a fifteen minute drive away. The Aloft is one of those hotels. After an interminable wait at the airport, I arrived at the Aloft dead tired.

What is this Legos tin box I'm flying in? It says a340. Unlike a fine French wine, this aircraft does not get better with age. ‎The plane is so old that it has an ash tray. That could pass as cultural difference if smoking was allowed on the plane. It is not.

S3 Fort Lauderdale: Sun, Surf, Sand, & Sushi
