    I take it I did not send you the article about all the delays in building this place ?

  2. I spent a lot of time in the Park Plaza’s “new” ’60s annex back in the early days of the Film Festival – they had their press office there. It looks pretty nifty in the photos you’ve posted here, but like a lot of that stuff, it didn’t wear well (or wasn’t maintained properly) and looked well worn by the time they gutted it all and remade it in the very ’90s style it has today. You don’t happen to have any old pics of the rooftop bar, back when it included an awful lot of patio space, do you? Very fond memories…
