Weekends in Lauderdale .....

So, another fun and exciting weekend in Fort Lauderdale.

We met some great guys from DC (shout outs to you boys if you are reading :-) ) ....and they made the time more fun than usual.

We go to Fort Lauderdale about once a quarter -- so its a nice respite from the every day drama that is life sometimes! We almost always stay at the Elysium resort, but they were full this time, so we stayed at the Alcazar (slash Worthington -- they are the same basic facility). The grounds were great, and the rooms were clean and bright. So no problems there. The crowd on the Worthington side was okay - but our new friends from DC and us stuck to the Alcazar side -- it was quieter, and a little more relaxing.

I wouldn't really recommend the Alcazar -- and not because its a subpar resort, but because the management there are pretty cranky, and almost seem to be inconvenienced by their guests. For example -- a couple from Amsterdamn were traveling round the world (this was like month three of their vacation) and opted to stay @ the Worthington. They accidentally locked themselves out of their room, called the emergency lock out number posted on the office, and apparently were treated pretty crassly (all second hand information...). We will be back at the Elysium next time. The crowd always seems much more friendly, and the owners and managers have always been supurb to all their guests.

But -- all in all good vacation. Next stop == the gayest place on earth! GayDays Disney!!
