It's Friday, so I thought I'd share a special sort of weekend getaway. Last week, while down near San Luis Obispo, my friends and I stopped into the world famous, very pink, Madonna Inn to have a cocktail and listen to the big band playing there. We were too late for the band (double drat!), but I had a blast capturing the insanely bad decor with my camera. The Madonna Inn is true kitsch, without even being aware of it. I don't mean to be unusually cruel, but the owners are proud of this place and strive for Liberace-like ambiance. I think I want to get married here, just for fun! At the very least, spend a honeymoon night in one of the many special rooms, like Bridal Falls!
with over a hundred individually themed rooms, including
the Buffalo Room, and a free postcard featuring each one!
