2017 OH MY!
I swear yesterday we were celebrating the New Year. WTF?
Cheers and Happy New Year. He we are in mid-February and I know that the "season" will be upon us sooner than I want. Don't get me wrong, I hate winter and I love season.. I'm just not feeling like I am anywhere close to being on schedule.
What is happening with us. We got new carpet in the original building building (18 standard rooms and 4 king rooms). We are getting new furniture in the king building (12 king rooms and 2 king suites). New carpet is planned for the main bar in late March. All the normal Spring cleaning, touch-ups, replacements, etc. that happen every year.. and though we had hoped to kick off this Cabaret season with phase 1 of a 2 phase complete remodel.. timing issues are in place and it looks like we will do phases 1 and 2 beginning in November for the Ppring 2018 season.
As many of you, Tarron Marrott, our long time front door personality, frequent pool security and Dunes Room Den Mother passed away in November. It was sudden and left all of us shocked. We will be having a Celebration of her life on Saturday April 8th from 3-5pm and we are planning a party fit for a Queen so we hope you can make it!!
We are also in the "we need summer help" phase, so if you, or someone you know is interested in a summer gig, let us know. We will be hiring people for the front desk, bartenders, bar backs, door/security, kitchen, food running and housekeepers - yes basically all departments!
I hope to have the full events calendar in place and ready for print by the end of the month. We are close and it's looking fun!
