Today we celebrate a great day in American history. Anyone traveling or have special plans? Wondering what Marriott Rewards Insiders have up their sleeves for this special day.
Last year it was so hot (110), we stayed at a SHS in town, where we spent the afternoon in the sparkling pool there, and then watched the stadium fireworks from our 4th floor corner hotel room. The next morning, up, downstairs for a nice hot (and free) breakfast, then off to work. This year, we're staying in town again. Backyard BBQ and fireworks at Chuckchansi Stadium (Giants triple A ball).
Whatever you do, hope it's special!
Just finished a round of golf......heading for a dip in the pool.....then over to next door neighbor's house for a neighborhood gathering with all the regular July 4 fixin's......then all back to our house for the fireworks display viewing from our 3rd floor overlooking the gulf. We get to see fireworks to the west from Destin,FL to Santa Rosa Beach (where we live) and to the east at Seaside, Rosemary Beach and on down to Panama City Beach......it's really quite a show!
...and thanks to all those who serve and help to protect the freedoms we all enjoy as Americans!
In Chicago at the Renaissance Blackstone visiting the kids, fortunate enough to have a high floor corner unit with a great view of tonight's Navy Pier fireworks. Dinner at Lou's (deep dish pizza), concert at Millennium Park and then back to the air conditioned room to watch the fireworks and the Rangers/White Sox game (one of our 'guys' has made the bigs). A great time had by all. Happy 4th to everyone.
PS - The restaurant here, Mercat a la Planxa, is terrific and overall service throughout property has been superb. Special thanks to Ms. Porter, Executive Assistant, who made for a marvelous stay for three generations of the family.
Pluto and all!
Going to sit in the tallest building in Missouri and dine at a great place, Kemoll's, and watch a great fireworks show at the same time. The fireworks is featured at The Gateway Arch. By the way, if I can figure out how to use the do it, I hope all of us enter the new contest, involving photo's.
you did it again. Kemolls brings back some wonderful memories and Fireworks under the Arch were always fantastic. Of course, the heat, humidity, the crowds, and of course, the mosquitos all contributed to the evenings happenings....
where is Kemolls these days? I recall it being in a free-standing low-rise building. Of course, that was 30 years ago.........
