The real time blogging begins with a review of the Delta Sky Club MSP. Per usual, I’m in the back of a Delta flight on my way back to New York City.
With only one hour to make my connection, I had just enough time for a quick stop at the Delta Sky Club MSP which is currently under construction. I understand that MSP is a Delta hub so there are a lot of Delta elites and Amex Platinum cardholders that need a lounge to rest and relax. Having just one functional lounge in the entire airport would make the other Delta lounge even more crowded. Having said that, I am ready for this lounge to be renovated. In its present state, it is a glorified bus station.
There’s self-serve coffee and water out like a construction site, a trough of snacks that are unappetizing, and a liquor selection that makes sobriety seem wortwhile.
Not one to pass on a drink, I made myself a fancy Bloody Mary, utilizing the ingredients at my disposal. This included Stoli vodka, quite possibly the worst pre-mix, and an ample amount of green olives. As I poured my mix from one glass to another and back again, a few people gathered around to watch what I was doing. If you thought taking photos of a lounge was awkward, imagine receiving drink requests when you’re not on the clock.
Despite my best efforts, the Bloody Mary was not very good. I took a few sips and tossed it.
Now I’m off to New York.
