“What is this, Hogwarts?”
— E.B. re: the crazy halls at the hotel
“I don’t like argyle.”
— Random girl at the Dubliner
“WHAT THE HELL IS AK-SAR-BEN?!*”
— Anyone from Iowa

It’s apparently a civic organization whose mission is “to leverage collective business leadership to build a more prosperous heartland.” They were having their Coronation and Scholarship Ball at our hotel, and we kept running into girls dressed for what looked like prom. Anyway, you learn something new every day!
