I think I mentioned this before, but in past years, we have always stayed in the hotel for breakfast. They always have a breakfast buffet. Every year in the past, or at least for as long as I can remember, we've always had a waiter named Jorge. My mom told me that he helped us get a room the first time we went there (or something like that), and he told us about a great golf course (I'll tell you about that later). Anyway, the point is, he always helped us and was just a generally nice person; over the years we had gotten to know him. We always ask for him when we go there. Well, now I'll have to get to the sad part of this story. This time, when we asked for Jorge, they said he wasn't there anymore. He lost his job, but now he works at a Mexican restaurant. :( At least he has a job at all, though.
There's still more sad news. At the Hyatt, on the very top floor, there is a restaurant they call the Polaris. The cool thing about it, though, is that it spins around. Not fast, but just slowly rotates, and it's cool because then you have a different view every time you look out the window. Apparently, when I was little, I called it the Spinning Kitchen, and that's what we've called it ever since. Well, of course there's a sad part of this story too. When we pressed the Polaris button on the elevator, it wouldn't go. The button didn't light up and the elevator didn't move. Later, we asked about it, and they said they were "re-doing it", but the waitress said that what's really happening is that they started re-doing it but never really finished. I hope their Spinning Kitchen project survives!
