Want to know a lodging property insider’s secret? Most owners of lodging properties wouldn’t use the toilet paper they put in their rooms. Seriously. Isn’t that crappy? Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.
The reason I’m writing an entire blog about toilet paper is that this is a surprisingly important issue in the lodging business. But let’s talk about how toilet paper gets here first, okay?
In the interest of giving thanks, I have created this list of who’s open on Thanksgiving. Turns out there are some pretty good choices all over the price spectrum. Now I’ve only put the places I’ve either heard about or have enjoyed myself. At the bottom of the list are the ones I called that plan to be closed.
Sadly, some of the places I called didn’t answer their phones, have websites or any presence on the Internet or any way of knowing what’s going on. Those aren’t on the list at all. I also tried to think about more “general” dining places such as those that would offer something traditional rather than specialty places, so I didn’t really call the Mexican, Chinese or pizza restaurants. I also included no fast food nor chain places. Sorry, I’m just biased that way and it’s my list, after all.
This is the time of year that so many people look forward to as the string of holidays ensues - Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and new year’s eve. What makes this time of year so special is that it represents milestones in the calendar that often mean that friends and family are due for a visit.
As the holiday season approaches the bleakness of winter is punctured by the warm glow of your favorite (we hope) people springing from Facebook and actually giving you status updates in person. It’s truly magical. And you don’t have to worry about the batteries on that darned not-so-smart phone just because you want to find out about Aunt Millie.
