The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

Sunday, April 25, 2004

Where was my head today? I was just sitting around, lamenting that there was nothing to do on this Sunday night (a common theme in these parts), when I noticed that the comp invitation I got for the grand opening of the "Element H2O" club at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino was for tonight. Sonuvabitch! For some reason, I thought the date on the invitation was for sometime next month.

Looks like I missed out, too: Free hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, massages by "Zen" (I assume that's a masseuse service with the hotel; possibly it's the name of the masseuse!), some live techno/dance DJing. Plus, no doubt, plenty of other freebies, and at least the possibility of interesting mingling--or, failing that, some good people-watching.

Only drawback: The comp ticket was good only from 6-8PM, and the whole party ended at 11PM anyway. I'm not sure I was that bored to hike all the way out to East Tampa for that. Besides, I wouldn't have really been able to get out the door here until around 9, at the earliest, so I would have missed out on the free stuff anyway. No real loss, I guess.
