I'm only going to tell you this one more time: book that room.
Here's fact I learned at our staff meeting last night. We are currently 200 room nights booked above this time last year. The Westin, as I told you, is completely booked. The Sheraton is mighty close to it.
Even if you're lucky enough to live here in America's best city, you don't want to go home Irish Fest weekend. Get that room, keep the party going. If you've never experienced Irish Fest after hours, it's high time you did. Rubbing elbows with your favorite performers. Trad music sessions that can and usually do rage until dawn. You gonna get that going home? I don't think so. And besides, you're coming back in the morning anyway.
If you don't book in the next few days, you will be shut out. Do it. Make a vacation out if it. But procrastinate no longer.
