Hello from the center of the holiday season. The solstice, along with all the different cultural iterations of celebrating it, has passed. Every day for the next six months will be lighter than the one that preceded it. We’re on the precipice of 2014. By the end of the week we’ll all be out jogging, biking, doing crunches, lifting weights, many of us with brand spanking new gym memberships. Kale smoothies for breakfast, followed by quinoa and unadorned chicken breasts for dinner are going to make us all feel so clean and good in just a couple of days. But for now, we’re still in the sweet spot. Cookies and cocktails and pies and pancakes are our just desserts, if you’ll forgive the pun, for this one little moment of global celebration of the return of the light. I hope you all are enjoying it as much as we are here at this little hotel.
Don’t forget, if generosity, charity or giving back in any form ends up on your list of New Year’s resolutions, our canned food drive is in action through January 10. Not that putting a single can of beans in our little collection vessel will allow you to check “be more giving” off your list, but it’s a step in the right direction. Ten cans might qualify as a little hop. Ten a day for the length of your next stay here, now that might really get you somewhere.
And if you feel like you’re generous enough, or like you need to focus on other things in this year’s resolutions, remember that we’re giving away one drink ticket per can brought in. Unlimited.
Happy New Year everyone! We look forward to taking this next spin around the sun with you all!
