critical hipster seeks hotel, fails.
March 10, 2003 12:28 PM
We've been tossing around extra ideas about where to go for vacation - because, as it turns out, we just don't feel right going to NYC and not seeing any good experimental theatre. Apparently, you have to go in March to catch the good stuff.
So we thought: we'll try some sort of traditional vacation spot. And I have to tell you - almost none of these places are up to my standards, accomodations-wise.
I don't think my standards are that absurd. I just want to come back to a hotel with space, a funky - or at least semi-funky - aesthetic appeal, a yummy bathroom with quality toiletries, and a big cushy bed with high thread count sheets.
I need a room with character and comfort.
We're lazy on vacation. I don't want to wake up at seven in the morning thinking "Ick, where am I?"
Apparently, that's not an option if you want to stay in any conventional vacation spot: islands, Los Vegas, whatever. I suppose that's a sign to us critical hipsters: if we want to tour with the other tourists, we're just going to have to put up with polyester floral bedspreads.

your wicked thoughts
Hey, traditional vaca spots DO have bed & breakfasts. And my experience is that those are not actually that much more expensive than hotels.

i just got back from ny and apparently march is a good month for experimental film, with the underground film festival and other stuff going on... it was great.

Did no one notice that I spelled Las Vegas incorrectly? An abomination of spelling!
I'll add that I am, on principal and through empirical research, disturbed by the bed and breakfast concept. I'll have to tell you all the Heine ("hiney") brothers story some time. Suffice to say, coming back to even the comfiest of bed and breakfasts at night feels much too much like coming home after curfew.
