After the setup, Chris and I went to The Fireplace as I said in my last entry. The funny thing is that after having a Jager drink (not a shot) and a Corona chaser, I was a little bubbly, and after running into my buddy Ryan, the three of us had a total blast. This guy was standing across from us and kept flirting with me, so I got up and went over to him. We talked for a few minutes and I let him down easy. It turned out OK though, and he appreciated my honesty. Then Chris and I went back to the hotel.
See how skinny they are?
Oh but it gets better. Keep in mind that it was FREEZING in DC this past weekend...walking down F street, look at what I saw:
I'm not going to even go there.
Finally, the hotel that we stayed at, the JW Marriott, they need help. When I checked in, I opted to pay cash because I didn't want to have $600+ dollars placed on hold for up to ten days. When I tried to pay cash at the front desk and explained about the frequent holds, the clerk, a Chinese male, said "you used a debit card instead of a credit card". Then he proceeds to tell me that they still need a credit card ANYWAY....WTF? Why are you attempting to force me to use a credit card instead of me paying with cash? Needless to say that after talking with the front desk manager, I got one night free.
